Newman News Term 1 Week 2: From the Leader of Early Childhood

What an amazing start we have had to the 2021 school year. Despite some small challenges that the COVID restrictions have posed, we have had a very smooth and successful start. Our teachers have reported that their classes are filled with excited, happy children who have been eager to jump straight back into the learning journey. I would like to express my thanks to all families for their understanding and adherence to COVID restrictions, and for their patience in navigating the new processes.

We warmly welcome all new students and families that have joined the Marian Campus this year, including all our new Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten students. We hope you feel very welcome at Newman College, and look forward to the many wonderful memories that will be shared during your child’s educational journey with us.

K-Y2 Parent Information Evening

The Parent Information Evening will be held on Tuesday 16 February from 5.00pm. Classroom Teachers will be presenting important information about the teaching and learning program, and other housekeeping information relevant to your child’s class.

Fitness Friday

We will be recommencing our very popular Fitness Friday activities starting next week. We can’t wait to see the smiling faces of the students as they enjoy a morning of fun with their family and friends. Click Here to see the full list of these activities.

We strongly encourage parents to come down in their exercise gear and join in with their children. Coffee at the College will also run in conjunction with this event, every Friday.

Primary Social Committee / Parent Representatives 

All families will have received an email this week, requesting the completion of the Parent Representative Consent Form.
The Parent Representative role is a pastoral and social role, designed to support families throughout the primary school years. The parent representative of your child’s class will compile a contact list using information from consenting families and distribute it to each class member who is willing to share their details.

There is also a questionnaire calling for parents who may be interested in joining our Primary Social Committee (PSC). The PSC meet twice per term to coordinate social events for families and children throughout the school year. If you would like further information regarding the PSC, please email PSC Secretary Kara Edwards  

Please complete this form as soon as possible.

Parking / Drop-off / Pick-up Etiquette

A reminder to all families to adhere to the City of Cambridge road regulations in surrounding streets. Our campus is located in a residential area, and we respectfully ask that you consider our neighbours during the busy pick up and drop off periods.

We continue to encourage families to utilise the drive-through pick up and drop-off area for students in Year 1 and 2. This is a 2-lane system and to ensure it is smooth process, families should utilise the left lane if turning left onto Cambridge Street, and the right drive-through lane if exiting right onto Cambridge street.
