CHURCH-owned Selwyn College continues to produce brilliant academic performance and results each year.
Speaking during the 2017 graduation and prize-giving day last week, School Principal Mr Lionel Vuthia said Selwyn College semester-one pass rate smashed 95 percent with students achieving 3.9 GPA.
He said three form seven students from Selwyn College have already secured scholarships, two from AusAid, one International Award, the other Regional Award and one Taiwan Scholarship.
Vuthia adds that one student from Selwyn College also went to Japan on a look-and-learn invitation visit.
He said the school continues to strive to achieve higher academic goals and is now counting on the school’s form seven external semester-one results.
Vuthia said the national assessment for school’s examination classes for 2017 F3, F5, F6 and F7 will be determined after the external exams in November.
He told parents that the teaching staff of Selwyn College will continue to hold high in preparation for the student’s exams.
Mr Vuthia said two volunteer teachers from the United Kingdom have joined Selwyn College teaching staffs which promises to boost the students’ exam preparation.
“Lately in August, two volunteers from Project Trust Volunteers in UK joined the teaching staff.
“This is a pilot project on annual recruitment if successful.
“Welcome to Mr Noah Poole and Mr Ultan Wood, they are now settling in well at school in SI context,” he explained.
On the same note, Vuthia advises students to create for themselves a milestone in life for better future.
“To the graduands, what does this occasion mean to you?
“I hope you are not just passing time but should create a milestone in your journey to the world out there,” he said.
Vuthia calls on parents to continue to support the students in their education.
