Dilworth School is an independent full boarding school for boys in Auckland, New Zealand. The boys attending are on scholarships covering education and boarding costs, as the school is owned and operated by a charitable trust. Dilworth School was founded under the terms of the will of an Auckland farmer and businessman, Irish born James Dilworth who died in 1894, he and his wife Isabella had no children of their own and left their wealth to establish a school with a goal of educating sons of people from the top two-thirds of the North Island who had suffered some family misfortune and were unable to afford the education they wanted their children to have. The school opened in 1906 with eight boys and for the first 21 years offered primary education only. Secondary boys at that time boarded at the school but attended Auckland Grammar School during the day; the original school buildings were Dilworth's old farm outbuildings. Classrooms and other buildings were added later. A secondary department was built in 1931.
A major expansion started in 1956, the 50th anniversary, with the foundation stone being laid for St Patrick's Chapel. The total roll when that phase of the expansion was completed some five years was 300; the next major jump in numbers was in 1993 when the present Junior Campus was built to accommodate 192 boys. This brought the total roll of both campuses to 510 covering Year 5 to Year 13. Dilworth has four houses representing places and counties in Ireland - Tyrone, Dungannon and Armagh; the school maintains a special relationship with the Royal School Dungannon, James Dilworth's alma mater. Each January, three pupils go to Dungannon as Tutors for a year on a scholarship. In July four pupils from Dungannon travel to Auckland to work as Overseas Gap Tutors at Dilworth; this is part of a long-standing exchange programme between the two schools. Dilworth is organised on three separate campuses. Senior Campus The Senior Campus is located in Epsom and accommodates up to 340 boys from Years 10 - 13.
This is the school's flagship campus. Junior Campus The Junior Campus is located in Remuera, Auckland; the campus accommodates 192 boys from Years 5 - 8. Rural Campus - Te Haerenga The new Rural Campus was opened in March 2012 after the Trust Board purchased the liquidated hotel and spa, Hotel du Vin; the campus – on 15 ha grounds in Mangatawhiri, south of Auckland – accommodates another 100 students in Year 9 The Dilworth Trust Board is one of New Zealand's largest charities and provides the funding to support the Dilworth School. The original endowment of 100,000 pounds left in 1894 by James Dilworth in his will has been invested wisely since and now has grown to a diversified portfolio of investments; the Board still invests predominantly in property, in particular, in the locality around the School but does hold a number of other investments including shares and bonds, both in New Zealand and overseas. The trust now holds $800 million in assets and cash; the beneficiaries of this trust are the boys.
The Board are precluded from assisting any other cause, however worthy it may be, so this leads to a focused Board and staff. A duty of the Board is the withdrawal of scholarships. Whilst staff provide significant input to the process, the final selection remains with the Trustees; the school curriculum is to provide an academic education by offering subjects that satisfy the seven learning areas of the New Zealand Framework, thus offers the National Certificate of Educational Achievement Level One, Two & Three. The school holds multiple National and Auckland wrestling titles and for a time were the undisputed national powerhouse wrestling school in New Zealand; the school have produced a significant number of New Zealand Junior Representatives since the program's inception in 1997. Rugby is the most popular code at Dilworth; the school's 1st XV had been amongst the strongest teams in the Auckland 1B Championship for years, winning 49 out of their 52 games since 2011 and reaching 7 finals since 2000.
They were crowned 1B Champions in 2012 and won the title again in 2013. In 2015, Dilworth made history by beating Onehunga High School, 12-10, in a 1A Championship promotion match and entered Auckland's top-flight for the first time in 109 years. In their debut 1A season, Dilworth finished 7th out of 12 teams, winning five of their 11 regular season games. In 2016, Dilworth lost much of their starting line-up, managed to win three crucial matches against Otahuhu 43-3, Onehunga 19-7 and Kelston Boys' 26-14 to secure an 8th-place finish and survival in the 1A; the 2017 season was a promising year for the college's 1st XV, with the team opening their account with a 27-13 away win against Liston College. The following weekend, Dilworth produced one of the biggest upsets in 1A history, beating 2016 National Champions and 2017 World Championship silver medallists, Mount Albert Grammar School, 20-15; the win brought national attention to the college and took Dilworth to the top of the 1A table for the first time in the school's history.
Dilworth closed out their 2017 campaign with wins against Aorere, 20-3, Tamaki, 20-5. The school's basketball program has enjoyed much success in recent years. Despite a roll of around 350 students at the Senior Campus, the school's premier basketball team defeated some of New Zealand's powerhouse basketball schools to win the Auckland Premier Championship in 2007 and 2008; as of 2015, 26% of students are Māori, 25% are Pākehā, 21% are Tongan and 10% are Samoan. The Cook Islands Māori, South East Asians and Chinese make up an additional 3% each, while Africans and Niuean make up 2
Dilworth (Charlotte neighborhood)
Dilworth is a neighborhood of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, United States. The neighborhood was Charlotte's first streetcar suburb and was established by Edward Dilworth Latta in the 1890s on 250 acres southwest of the original city limits, it included. Planned with a grid pattern similar to the city's original four wards, Dilworth was designated the Eighth Ward. Dilworth was born out of the powerful impact that the newly minted streetcar had on Charlotte's original four ward neighborhood; the first streetcars were horse-drawn and mule-drawn. These precursor streetcars and walking were Charlottean's primary mode of transportation which kept development close to Trade and Tryon Streets, Charlotte's urban core; the first electric streetcar, Latta's Charlotte Street Railway Company, began operation May 18, 1891, just two days before Dilworth was opened. The original streetcar was replaced just five short years by Charlotte Electric Railway. Streetcars or trolleys were a popular mode of transportation and made adjacent real estate desirable.
The Charlotte Electric Railway trolley became a billboard for the Dilworth community as it prominently displayed "Buy a home in Dilworth for rent money". Trolleys remained critical to Charlotte's development until car No. 85, the last to run, ceased operations in March 1938. This car was used for many purposes over the years and was about to be scrapped when it was located by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission and meticulously restored as part of a project to bring Trolleys back to Charlotte. Since 1996, Car No. 85 once again proudly shuttles passengers from Southend, a neighborhood to adjacent to Dilworth, to Charlotte's urban center. Sedgefield Park serves as a pedestrian connection to bordering Sedgefield; the streets of Dilworth feature stately, mature oak trees and houses with front porches. The homes are bungalows — with the occasional Queen Anne — and some larger, two-story Colonial Revivals lining Dilworth Road East and West. East Boulevard serves as the main thoroughfare through the neighborhood.
East Boulevard is lined with restaurants and shops, many located in renovated homes. Charlotte's largest hospital, Carolinas Medical Center, is in Dilworth; this 861-bed teaching hospital is the region's only Level 1 trauma center. Much of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Dilworth Historic District; the district encompasses 1 contributing structure. The district was listed in 1987, with a boundary increase in 2000.
