Newman Newbies: From the Vice Principal

05 Apr 2019

Lisa Fogliani, Vice Principal

 

Our Vision for Learning, Shine through Discovery – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16) challenges our learners to strive for personal excellence. Each student will encounter difficulty, success, failure and achievement. Adopting a growth mindset supports children to accept challenges as opportunities, failing as learning and to value perseverance and determination. By changing our language to support growth instead of grades, and encouraging children to believe they can improve supports resilient, engaged learners.

High Achievers Assembly

The high achieving students from the Class of 2018 were welcomed back for a special assembly where they were formally recognised for their 2018 WACE achievements. Their results exemplified the commitment of cohort to individual and collective excellence supported by outstanding teachers and supportive families. Jai Taylor addressed the assembly and provided sound advice to the Years 10, 11 and 12 students about how to navigate their final years of school. This included cultivating relationships with both teachers and friends, having balance, working hard, participating in school life and setting goals. CLICK HERE to view the WACA Results Brochure.
