We are thrilled to announce that Selwyn College placed 1st Overall in the inaugural Auckland College Climbing Series after a fantastic performance by the team in the third and final round of the competition last weekend, which involved 35 schools. This meant they won the Auckland College School shield, which was a closely fought battle. In the end, it was the consistency of the Selwyn team that gave them the edge over Northcote College (2nd) and Baradene College (3rd).Thirteen climbers competed in Round 3 with the following notable results:William McKnight - 1st Senior Boys’ Top Rope and Senior Boys’ OverallPaul Schoeman - 3rd Senior Boys’ Top Rope and Senior Boys’ OverallSelwyn College was also awarded the Sportsmanship Award for the round, which is a fantastic accolade for these students.Across all three events, Selwyn College students also achieved podium finishes:William McKnight - 2nd Overall in the Senior Boys’ divisionPaul Schoeman - 3rd Overall in the Senior Boys’ DivisionSamuel McKnight - 3rd Overall in the Intermediate Boys’ DivisionWe are thrilled that our Climbing Club has grown in both numbers and performance this year and we are very grateful for the parent support led by Lisa Marie and Ian Hallam and John McKnight.

Senior Design and Visual Communication Students

We are extremely proud of our DVC students for exploring and developing stunning design ideas, despite the COVID19 disruptions to their learning this year.  Congratulations to the Year 11 DVC students who designed their very own Selwyn College Bus Stop! Their bus stops have been inspired and influenced by world-famous architects including Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Shigeru Ban and many more. Throughout the year, the students have learnt how to use CAD (Computer Aided Design) to generate, refine and execute their design ideas in very exciting ways! The main focus for our Year 12 and 13 DVC students was Architecture. They wrote their own design brief and experienced the design process within the realms of Architecture and Spatial Design. Here are some snapshots of their awesome final Architecture outcome that was also created using CAD.
