A Wonderful Experience for some of our Students

Last Wednesday, our Totara Learning Centre staff had the proud privilege of taking our TLC students for the first ever Special Olympics FIFA unified football event at Bruce Pulman Park, Takanini. This event is proudly supported by FIFA Foundation and through these events Special Olympics New Zealand is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences.      Two of our Year 10 mainstream students, Keira Barlow and Charlotte Fehl, volunteered to be on our team as per the requirements of the event and they are to be applauded for how well they integrated with not just our students but also the other participating teams. The surprise for them was to be interviewed by a sports journalist who asked them for their perspective and experience, and they answered the questions with ease and confidence, truly reflecting the Selwyn Way!    

A Vocational Pathways Graduation Celebration

This week we held our very first Vocational Pathways Graduation Ceremony. Parents and many of our staff gathered in the staffroom along with representatives from our business and industry partners to celebrate the success of eighteen of our students on completing their vocational pathway programme.  Each student was presented with a graduation certificate and lei. Citations were read by their Head of House and our Director of Student Pathways Michele Zackey-Meek, who has overseen their programmes, explained what they involved and where each student was heading onto in 2021. It was wonderful to learn about the exciting futures these graduates have ahead of them.As a school, we feel honoured to be working in partnership with these businesses and industries to be able to offer such outstanding opportunities to our Selwyn students: Techtorium, Yobee, NZMA – Allied Health and Allied Trades, Crown Institute of Studies, Service IQ, EIS, Calder and Stewart, Safety ‘n Action, Auckland Chamber of Commerce, Tamaki Job and Skills Hub, Remarkable Roofing, and the NZ Police. We also thank the Ministry of Education for their support.
