Worksafe Enforceable Undertaking

STATEMENT FROM SAINT KENTIGERN TRUST BOARD

Saint Kentigern Trust Board has entered into an enforceable undertaking agreement with WorkSafe New Zealand. This agreement has been reached following WorkSafe’s investigation into an accident in which very serious injuries were sustained by two students at the College production last year.

Dr John Kernohan, Deputy Chairperson of the Trust Board, said that the Trust Board sincerely apologises for the fact that the accident happened and for the harm caused to all those families involved. Saint Kentigern accepts that it should have done more to acknowledge the seriousness of what happened immediately after the accident. The injuries were not minor. The injuries were significant and life threatening.

Individual members of the Trust Board personally feel deep regret and take full responsibility for the emotional and physical harm that has been suffered by those students involved. Ensuring that all students can learn in a safe environment remains Saint Kentigern's first priority.

As part of the enforceable undertaking agreement, Saint Kentigern is entering into a restorative justice process with the families, and will not comment further until this process is completed.
