A New Selwyn Sailor Soars

Earlier this year, our new Year 9 student Noah Shirley qualified to represent New Zealand in the 2019 European Optimist Dinghy sailing team by competing in a number of local regattas.  He was 1 of only 4 Kiwi sailors to qualify for the European travelling team. The 2019 European dinghy championships were held in France from 22nd -29th June and Noah was the only Kiwi sailor to qualify for the top fleet - the Gold fleet - sailing against very tough international competition. He finished overall as the number 1 New Zealand sailor for the champs.  This puts Noah in good stead to contribute to the Selwyn sailing team in the upcoming summer series.  Well done Noah!

JPA Halfway – A Chance to SOAR!

A huge congratulation to every Selwyn Junior Performing Arts student on your wonderful mid- year show: JPA Halfway 2019. This was a fantastic showcase for our JPA students as they prepare for the end of year production.The audience was treated to excerpts from Macbeth, The Lord of the Flies and The Wonderful World of Dissocia as well as a variety of beautifully choreographed musical dance moments such as: Walking Blues, Raining Men and Grow as we go.  The huge variety of the show gave every JPA student a chance to soar, which they certainly did, in every aspect of the Performing Arts.It also provided the audience the opportunity to witness the high quality of the JPA programme and the amazing work they are doing and will now continue to develop for the rest of the year.Thank you to everyone who teach, support and go the extra mile for our JPA students to bring out the very best in them.We look forward to the end of the year.
