The Student Diary is provided to each student in Years 3-10 to assist with information and organisation.
The College Library is located in the St John Henry Newman Learning Hub. It houses a comprehensive selection of fiction and non-fiction resources and caters for students in Years 5-12. The Library is open Monday – Thursday 8.00am to 5.00pm, and Friday 8:00 to 4:00pm.
There are Exam Bundles available in the Library for each ATAR Subject that is taught at Newman College. These include the Exam Papers, Marking Keys and Marker’s Reports for the last three years (2018, 2019 and 2020). A range of ATAR study guides are also available for use in the Library.
Homework Club runs weekly in the St John Henry Newman Learning Hub (on the Ground Floor), from 3:15 – 5:00pm Monday to Thursday. Homework Club is a place that students can come to study, collaborate with their peers and complete homework or unfinished classwork. Students can also come to gain assistance from staff (please see the attached timetable) and a specialist STEM Tutor (on Tuesdays and Thursdays).
Assessment is an integral part of the learning process, providing students, parents/guardians and teachers with information on academic progress and feedback to inform future learning. Assessment procedures need to be fair, reliable, valid and transparent. Assessments should arise naturally out of the teaching and intended learning of the curriculum and syllabus. They should be carefully constructed to enable judgements to be made about students’ progress in ways that contribute to ongoing learning. Information collected to establish where students are in their learning can be used for summative purposes and for formative purposes.
Information and Communication Technology
Includes any electronic device or application used by students. It is our policy at Newman College that the use of ICTs be managed through a ‘whole College community’ approach where the staff and parents ensure students are taught appropriate skills, strategies and values.
