When a girl becomes part of the Selwyn House community, she joins a school with a long tradition of educating young women. Our school has traditionally focussed on offering a unique and innovative education, which continues to evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.
Our School was founded in 1929 by those who believed in the power of education to provide young women with the opportunity to develop and realise their potential.
We inspire our students to learn through continuous inquiry, empowering them with the skills, knowledge, courage and optimism to become caring, active, lifelong learners who enhance the life of others.
Our school motto is as relevant today as it was when our school was established.
It encourages the girls to believe in themselves and to strive for what they want to achieve.
I AM: each child, each person exists as an individual.
I CAN: that the individual has a potential not only for doing things but also for making choices.
I OUGHT: the choices imply a moral decision between doing right and wrong.
I WILL: once the choice has been made it has to be carried into practice.
