The Student Diary is provided to each student in Years 3-12 to assist with information and organisation.
The Siena Learning Centre
The Siena Learning Centre opens at 8.00am and accommodates students in Years 7-12 throughout the school day including recess and lunch. Additionally, students can avail themselves of assistance provided by staff and ex-students at the Homework Club which operates between 3.30pm and 6.00pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
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.
