Newman College Secondary School Small Group & Personal Tours

At Newman College we promote and embrace an holistic education which encompasses academic studies, culture, service, sport and spiritual development.

Each of these pursuits is individually important and collectively they have the power to develop your child’s spirit and strength of character: his/her heart and soul.

At Newman College our High School Education maintains a core focus on wellbeing.

Wellbeing is about promoting a better way of life and equality for students where their basic human requirements are met, whilst being afforded the opportunity to reach their potential. Newman College offers dedicated support networks for all students coupled with outstanding infrastructure and facilities allowing students to achieve their goals.

We are very proud of our school and our students and we always love to share this with families who share our values.

Your Child’s Journey Through Secondary School

Middle High School Years

As students enter their Middle Years of Schooling we continue to seek the development of the whole person by challenging them to explore their interests and passions. In this developmental stage we seek to promote young people who become:

  • Independent and self-regulated learners
  • Resilient in their approach to overcoming social, academic and emotional obstacles
  • Adaptable and flexible in their attitude to learning
  • Creative and imaginative thinkers who are able to work in teams to problem solve
  • Informed and strong advocates of Social Justice issues using the Gospel values as guidance
  • Strong advocates for positive and optimistic social change

Senior High School Years

In Senior education years students are encouraged to discover and develop their interests and strengths so that they might aspire to leading meaningful lives.

As a result, a wide range of academic options await the students whilst Music, Visual Arts, Drama, Dance, Woodwork, Fabrics, Food Technology, Health, STEM, Italian, Outdoor Education, Sport and Technology are further opportunities.

In addition, pathways and career counselling resources are available to students to assist in navigating current and future choices.

A wide range of sporting pursuits exist within the College program and beyond in the form of the Newman Sporting Association which offers eight sporting clubs at community level.

Education is a journey and at Newman College we are firmly committed to providing the best possible resources to enable your child to reach their full potential whilst experiencing a wide range of opportunities related to both their scholastic and personal interests and growth.

Newman College is with them every step of the way and thus we also suggest you take a look at the programs and facilities Newman College provides as your child progresses through their school years.

Siena Learning Centre

At the heart of Secondary Schooling at Newman College lies the Siena Learning Centre. This is an interactive learning space, representing the modern library.

The Centre not only hosts lessons and learning experiences throughout each day, it is the hub of learning, including the after hours homework club which often see in excess of 100 students granted access to tutors and mentors to support development.

The New Leaning Hub

It is a very exciting time for the staff and students at Newman College with the construction of our new Learning Hub now underway. This facility will see students afforded state of the art learning resources that support our Vision for Learning.

The new Learning Hub will encourage agility, movement and flexible learning environments to support a range of formal and informal learning activities, and provide opportunities for connections between the year groups, staff and the broader community. The Learning Hub will be a resource for children in Years 3 – 12 to enjoy.

In particular, it will provide flexible learning spaces, break out areas, presentation zones and library resources that will service this broader student cohort.

The New Learning Hub is expected to be commissioned in January 2021.

Newman College knows that not all students wish to progress to University. As such we have structured learning and resources to accommodate a vast framework of opportunities for all students.
