Newman News Term 3 Week 10: From the Vice Principal

Term 3 has been full of opportunities for our students to collaborate, challenge themselves and be celebrated. We had College Productions, Music Nights, Assumption Day, Athletics Carnivals, Drama Production and Wellbeing and Multi-Cultural weeks, to name a few.  

It was sad to say farewell to the Graduating Class of 2023 on Wednesday. The Guard of Honor across the oval lined with both Primary and Secondary students exemplified the long journey students undertake during their schooling years. The excited high fives of the younger students and the clapping from the older students created an atmosphere of community. As these students graduate from Newman, they enter our Alumni group and as such, will remain part of our Marist family.   

With the closing of the term, it is a fitting time to rest and reflect on all of our achievements this year. I wish each student, parent and staff member a lovely break and I look forward to welcoming the students back in summer uniform at the start of Term 4.
