From pre-kindergarten through to Year 6 the classroom teacher takes a major role in creating a personal environment where each child is known and cared for. In secondary school, smaller groups meet each day with their Pastoral Care Group (PCG) teacher who becomes their first point of contact.
Positive peer relationships are promoted with a student’s rights and responsibilities being clearly articulated. A pastoral priority is emphasising that there can be no compromising of a person’s rights, self-respect, morale or capacity to learn.
Each student has the opportunity and encouragement to engage in faith development programs, leadership opportunities, study programs, arts endeavours, cultural and sporting groups and outreach initiatives. The below media provides an insight into the opportunities made available to students of Newman College.
