Art is a passion for Shaynell and something she wants to pursue both as a hobby and a career. She would like to study towards a Bachelor of Creative Media Production at Massey University and has worked hard to gain the technical and practical experience needed.
Shaynell has exhibited her work both through the school and in the community. She was the recipient of the Seatoun Arts and Crafts Award for three years. She teaches art to younger children and volunteers for the St Vincent de Paul Society.
"She is a very likeable, sincere young woman who represents the best of what our young people have to offer. She has been an exceptional student and is expected to shine at university as she pursues her particular area of interest," said Principal Mary Curran.
