We started The Selladore to give the girls of this school an opportunity to regain control over language, to facilitate independent expression where there might exist passivity. The objective in creating The Selladore webpages were to provide an interactive platform for evoking creative inspiration and the sharing of art work, and to provide an active forum for the articulation of the student voice. These pages will allow for engagement in current global issues, allow interactive dialogue for students, and function as a historical record for past issues. We ask simply that you view this work with an open mind, an open heart and with the understanding that, should you choose to express yourself as well, we will be waiting patiently for your submissions.

Within these pages are entire worlds, constellations of meaning and purpose brought to bear upon us by the girls of Elmwood. There is a startling array of techniques and styles fraught with humour, passion and intent. Though each piece says something different they are similar in that they all say something, meaningful and forcefully.
