Students have made a smooth transition back to Term 4. As we mark the beginning of the final term, it is important for students to maintain their focus and momentum and to finish strong.

We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2023 formally next Tuesday night at their Graduation Mass, Awards and Dinner, held in Optus Stadium.

We strongly recommend you access the The eSafety Commissioner’s website to access resources on how to get started with parental controls in social media, games, and apps and on devices.  

Please also refer to the Fact Sheet that explains what to do if you see distressing content online.

St Vincent De Paul Society Christmas Appeal 

Make it a real Christmas filled with joy! 

The annual St Vincent de Paul Society Christmas Appeal provides hope, comfort, and dignity to over 3000 families in Western Australia who will be struggling during the Christmas season. As a Catholic school educating in the Marist Tradition, Newman College seeks to reach out and serve those in our community following the example set by Jesus in the Scriptures: For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink…Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters, you did for me.”    

Matthew 25: 35;40  

This year, the focus of the Vinnies Christmas Appeal is on the continuing impacts of the cost-of-living-crisis in Australia, including rental and housing affordability and its compounding effects.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of this appeal.
