Newman News Term 2 Week 8: From the Vice Principal

Teachers are committed to ensuring students are engaged in relevant and innovative learning experiences. The Religious Education curriculum across the life of the College has an inherent duality to it; a knowledge and understanding component and an intent to form and develop young people in their faith. Our commitment and awareness of agencies such as Caritas, Lifelink and Marist Solidarity, give our students a real-world context so they can witness the positive effect service, fundraising and presence has on the lives of others. I encourage all families to make real-world connections to classroom learning intentions and unleash the power of storytelling, example and authentic learning.

Reporting and Parent Teacher Interviews 

My sincere thanks and gratitude to all teachers for their commitment to quality assessment and reporting of student learning.  A-E reporting from Years 3 to 10 reflect the SCSA Judging Standards which benchmark student achievement at the end of the academic year.  Semester One reports reflect student progress towards the end of year benchmark.
Student reports will be available to families on Friday 5 July via the SEQTA Engage portal.  Please note that Y10 reports will be uploaded on Friday 21 June.

Collaboration between families and school is important for student success and we look forward to coming together to set learning goals for the semester ahead.

Code of Conduct / Child Protection  

A reminder to all families that the Code of Conduct can be accessed via the College website here. The Code is mandated by Catholic Education Western Australia and the application of the Code extends to all staff, students, parents, guardians, caregivers and volunteers.
The Code seeks to value the dignity of every person, foster positive relationships, ensuring confidentiality and accountability and supports professional boundaries. Events held during school hours AND outside of school hours that are associated with the College are also supported by the Code of Conduct. Any perceived breaches of the Code can be discussed with any member of the Senior Leadership Team. We thank you in advance for your understanding and support of how we strive to partner positively with one another.

Newman College Social Media Platforms

The College uses Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to celebrate and showcase learning, connect with families, prospective and current, and to stay in contact with past students. We know social media platforms are a highly effective way to engage with all members in our College, Marist and wider community. The Code of Conduct extends to all social media platforms and it is important that if you have feedback for the College, that it is directed to a relevant member of staff. As adults, we must role model appropriate online behaviours for our children and give the College an opportunity to respond directly to any concerns or feedback.
