On Wednesday 20 February the College recognised and celebrated the Class of 2018 who achieved Outstanding Academic Achievement. The High Achievers Assembly was an opportunity for students past and present, family members and staff to reflect and gather together as part of our Marist family.
In his Principal’s Address, Mr Finneran spoke about culture which defines who we are. “Your efforts demonstrated by application, resilience, discipline, shared values friendships and self-belief have enhanced our Newman culture. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents”.
Jai Taylor (Class of 2018) gave an inspirational address with his main message being; you need to take every opportunity the College has to offer to support your learning without undermining your personal wellbeing.
