Newman News Term 4 Week 6: From the Principal

Dear Newman Families 

Y7 to Y12 Principal’s Assembly  

In keeping with “Shine through Discovery” – Celebration, we were pleased to present a range of academic excellence and co-curricular activity awards at this recent assembly. I was delighted to witness the diversity of talents and skills showcased by our students. The recipients of these awards exemplified the core values we uphold at our College, demonstrating qualities such as perseverance, and a commitment to excellence. 

Congratulations to all the award recipients, and a sincere thank you to our dedicated staff and parents who continue to support and nurture the talents of our students.  

Newman Parents Forum

I extend my appreciation to all the parents who attended the recent Parents Forum meeting to discuss important aspects of our College, including the new Primary build, uniform alignment, OSH Club, communication, bus service, and traffic flow. Your active participation and insightful contributions made the meeting a valuable and productive exchange of ideas. 

Primary School Recitals

I was delighted to attend the recent Primary School recitals, where our talented students left us all in awe with their incredible performances. 

Over the course of several days, our young performers showcased not only their musical and artistic abilities, but also their dedication and passion for the arts. The level of talent displayed was impressive, and it was evident that our students had put in considerable effort. 

I would like to extend my congratulations to all the performers for their outstanding contributions. A special thanks also to the teachers, staff, and parents who supported and encouraged our young talents throughout the preparation process. 

These recitals are a celebration of the vibrant and dynamic spirit of our Primary School and I look forward to experiencing many more recitals in the future.   

Marist Cricket Games 

The Marist Cricket game was held on Monday against Bunbury Catholic College. The enthusiasm from the players, coaches, and spectators created a great atmosphere on the field. Such events not only contribute to the physical well-being of our students but also foster a sense of unity within our school community. 

Well done to all the players for their performance and commitment and I would like to acknowledge the coaches and organisers who worked tirelessly to make the event a success.  

Year 10 River Cruise

The Year 10 River Cruise held last Wednesday was a success!  The event was filled with positive energy. 

Our Year 10 students demonstrated exemplary behaviour, reflecting the positive culture we strive to foster at our College, their attitude and enthusiasm were key ingredients in making the Year 10 River Cruise a night to remember. 

A special thank you to David Husband, the Leader of Wellbeing and the dedicated team of teachers who played a crucial role in assisting and overseeing the event. Your hard work ensured that the evening ran smoothly and was enjoyed by all. 

Once again, a big thank you to everyone involved. 

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day was acknowledged across all campuses and a brief but meaningful service was held to honour and remember the sacrifices made by those who served in the Armed Forces. 

During the service, students and staff gathered to pay their respects, reflect on the significance of this day, and express gratitude for the courage and dedication of our veterans.
