In March of 2017, Middle School students took part in "Intensives" for the first time at Selwyn House. Intensive Courses provide opportunities for students to pursue passions and discover new interests. The courses are offered by middle school teachers with lessons coming largely out of guided student activities rather than direct instruction allowing students to experience the thrill of learning without the typical extrinsic motivation of grades.
The intensives offered in 2017 included diverse interests such as cooking, coding, comic book creation, broadcasting, exploring National and municipal parks, and more. You can read more about each intensive course and view the finished projects of students HERE

This prestigious award recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians from across the country in a wide range of fields. Ms. Manning was nominated for her years of charitable work with Christchurch Cathedral. P.K. Subban also received a meritorious service decoration during the ceremony, alongside a dozen other volunteers who were recognized by the govenor general of Canada.
