Congratulations to our Year 12 student Mahek Dave who is the 2022 winner of the prestigious Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust Schools' Competition. Mahek was selected by members of the Trust for her photographic entry reflecting the theme of "my Passion, my Heart, my Soul".

The trust was formed in the memory of Kate Edger who was the first woman in Aotearoa/New Zealand to gain a university degree – a  BA in Latin and Mathematics. The focus of the trust is on supporting students to access education and this is the 5th year of their Schools' Competition.

Mahek was presented with her $1000 prize by The Trust's General Manager, Nina Tomaszyk and Awards Coordinator, Katrina Ford who visited Selwyn especially to make the presentation.
