Newman News Term 1 Week 4: From the Deputy Principal Secondary

High Achiever’s Assembly

The High Achiever’s Assembly, held on Wednesday 15 February, saw the return of 27 students from the Class of 2022 who achieved success in their studies across Year 11 and Year 12. We celebrated some outstanding results as we acknowledged those students who achieved a Certificate of Distinction, a Certificate of Merit and/or an ATAR of 90+, which placed them in the top 10% of students in Western Australia. We celebrated our top-performing VET student, our Principal’s Award winner for the highest ATAR in the graduating class of 2023 and acknowledged exceptional achievement by Saskia Wigley in the Outdoor Education ATAR Examination. Max Hobson (Class of 2022) was invited to address the current students and staff of Newman College; he spoke with authenticity and honesty as he shared his journey on an ATAR pathway.  

Guild Swimming Carnival

The Guild Swimming Carnival was a successful occasion with much credit owed to our hard-working and dedicated Health and Physical Education staff, and our enthusiastic and passionate Guild Coordinators. Many records were broken on this day by some incredible athletes. We look forward to their continued success as they approach the ACC A Division Athletics Carnival.  

Year 8 and Year 9 Information Evenings

Our Year 8 and Year 9 Information evenings were held on Monday 20 February. Our incoming principal Mr Andrew Watson, who officially commences his time at the College in Term 2, was in attendance. It was a wonderful opportunity for our Year 8 and Year 9 families to come together, and meet their child’s Pastoral Care Group teachers. Both cohorts participated in sessions with their Pastoral Care Group teachers; Year 8 focused on growth mindset and Year 9 worked on articulating their own SMART goals.

Our Year 7 Information Evening is scheduled for Wednesday 1 March and commences at 6.00pm in the Auditorium. After the presentation, students and parents/guardians will move into the John Henry Newman Learning Hub for a session with their PCG teachers.  Click HERE for details.
