Faith Formation

Home » Life at Newman » Faith Formation

Newman College is a Catholic school educating in the Marist tradition which endeavours to lead students to know and love Jesus Christ. 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.

This Vision is underpinned by our methodology of Experience, Discernment Reflection and Action. Our Mission embraces our Vision for Learning –‘Shine Through Discovery’ – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16), to develop the individual’s unique God given gifts and to nurture their faith and learning to Challenge, Collaborate, Create and Celebrate who we are and what we seek to achieve.

Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon

Isaiah 58:10

The central role of ministry is highlighted by the aims of the Annual School Improvement Plan, Bishops’ Mandate and Marist Schools Australia. We are committed to engaging with the global mission and expression of the Church and we will seek to animate the following four areas of College life.
