Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Newman College

It is with great pride that we celebrate being part of the Newman College community. Newman College is a Catholic School educating in the Marist tradition. The College exists to provide a co-educational learning centre for Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 students. We strive to animate our delivery of learning, teaching and wellbeing, as one which is innovative and creative, underpinned by contemporary and relevant pedagogy. Our Vision for Learning ‘Shine through Discovery’ – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16) inspires our faith and learning community to Challenge, Collaborate, Create and Celebrate who we are and what we seek to achieve.

The scripture passage Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16) encapsulates our aspiration for our community to let their gifts and talents shine, represented through the image of the light. It is this light that will guide our students to personalised learning pathways that will give them the very best opportunity to be successful lifelong learners and agents of change.

With Mary as our model in faith, we encourage students to grow into the fullness of their humanity in an educational environment where they feel welcomed, accepted and valued.

Newman College is one of 52 Marist Schools across Australia that celebrate our Marist heritage. Joining a network that expands through 83 countries around the world, we are part of a global community that provides support and opportunity to our students and teachers.

We welcome you to Newman College and encourage all students, teachers and visitors to embrace our Vision, and Shine through Discovery.
