Student Wellbeing

Student wellbeing permeates our teaching programs, our student support structures and the policies that govern the way we engage with students, staff and parents.

At Newman College, we believe that wellbeing begins, though certainly extends, beyond self. We therefore challenge our students to seek healthy reflection on their own being and place in the world but we also require them to support, and meaningfully contribute towards, the lives of others.

Our objective is to develop a holistic approach to wellbeing in and out of the classroom by guiding students towards the development of skills, mindsets and behaviours that contribute to their social, physical, academic and emotional success. Read more
