Our School

Student wellbeing permeates our teaching programs, student support structures and the policies that govern the way we engage with students, staff and parents.

At Newman College, we believe that wellbeing begins, though certainly extends, beyond self. We therefore challenge our students to seek healthy reflection on their own being and place in the world but we also require them to support, and meaningfully contribute towards, the lives of others.

Our objective is to develop a holistic approach to wellbeing in and out of the classroom by guiding students towards the development of skills, mindsets and behaviours that contribute to their social, physical, academic and emotional success.

With the intent of developing supportive and trusting staff-student relationships, individual pastoral care advisors are allocated to small groups of students at every year level. Each student progresses through the entirety of College life with the same advisor.

Presence – building caring relationships based on trust, respect and valuing each person

Simplicity – open and honest communication which accommodates individual needs

Family Spirit – emphasis on communal well-being where mutual support and shared responsibility flourish

Love of Work – pursuit of excellence through hard work and commitment. Recognition that the dignity of work is achievable by setting high expectations and standards, applying genuine effort and celebrating success

Way of Mary – with Mary as a model, students are invited to share our spiritual life through prayer, liturgies and service to the local and wider communities
Shine through Discovery – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16)
A Catholic School Educating in the Marist Tradition

Our Vision for Learning ‘Shine through Discovery’ – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16) inspires our faith and learning community to Challenge, Collaborate, Create and Celebrate who we are and what we seek to achieve. By promoting education in the Marist tradition we, at Newman College strive to animate our delivery of learning, teaching and wellbeing. We also work to underpin our contemporary and relevant pedagogy with innovation and creativity.

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 however collectively they have the power to develop your child’s spirit and strength of character: his/her heart and soul.

Tailored Learning for our Youngest Students - Early Childhood Education PK to Y2

Newman College loves the uniqueness and energy of small children. We offer a personalised approach to learning in a safe and supportive environment at our Early Childhood Education campus. The primary intake year is Kindergarten.

We weave an informal and flexible play-based learning approach designed to move a child through a developmental pathway towards literacy and numeracy. Throughout the journey, families remain our closest partners in this process.

Children have the opportunity to develop and grow in a caring space, before transitioning into our Primary campus (Y3-Y6), which drives a program suited to the next stage of development.This separation allows for tailored learning for our youngest students, in a specifically crafted environment. Our Early Learning experts guide your children on a play based learning pathway, guided by the College's Vision for Learning. This allows us to focus on the sum total of all of the aspects of learning a child required; ensuring positive outcomes focused on the 'whole' child.

Take a Tour of our Early Learning Centre (Marian Campus) today.

Catholic Primary Education, Upper Primary Schooling - Y3 to Y6

Newman College offers a Catholic Primary School Education that corresponds to the learning stage of a child. For this reason, the Primary campus of Lavalla is specifically designed for Y3-Y6 children.

As children transition from Early Childhood Education to the Upper Primary campus, the students experience a sense of adventure and anticipation. They enjoy the freedom of the expansive, open grounds. Furthermore, children gain access to the Newman College playing fields, adventure play equipment, world class auditorium, and heated Olympic size swimming pool. Students have access to the extensive bank of resources available to them. We offer flexible learning spaces that encourage collaboration and inclusion. There are very few Catholic Primary School Education facilities like those available at Newman College.

Above all, our students are challenged daily to become citizens of change, their experiences steering them towards life in our Secondary campus.

Take a Tour of our Upper Primary (Lavalla Campus) today.

Catholic High School Education - Y7 to Y12

A Catholic High School Education maintains a core focus on wellbeing. Wellbeing is about promoting a better way of life and equality for students. Wellbeing in its simplest definition is: Being Well. It is where the basic human requirements are met, whilst being afforded the opportunity to have optimistic aspirations enveloped in an environment where the endeavour of ‘Being Well’ can be achieved, therefore, attaining a satisfactory quality and standard of life and happiness. Mike Kelly, Founder of the Institute of Wellbeing.

Catholic High School Education at Newman College seeks to achieve the goals that are articulated in the wellbeing definition above. Therefore, we raise awareness of issues connected to self-worth by creating a positive physical, mental and spiritual environment. Furthermore, we equip our students with skills that allow them to take greater responsibility for their own wellbeing and the wellbeing of their peers.

Newman College offers a Catholic High School Education that is inclusive. Firstly, everyone is valued. Secondly, everyone is worth listening to. Finally, everyone can make a difference. We deliver a Catholic High School Education Curriculum that is collaborative and contemporary.

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, Italian 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.
