Newman Catholic School mission statement

 Our mission is to educate our students in the wholeness of mind, body, and spirit through the teachings of Jesus Christ as proclaimed by the Catholic Church by placing Him at the centre of students’ lives.

Our school commits itself to the principles of Catholic education and academic excellence, leading our students from shadows and images to the fullness of the Truth, as envisioned by our namesake, the Blessed John Henry Newman. The school community recognises that excellence in education can best be achieved, and future leaders nurtured, within a living tradition rooted in the Love and Truth of Christ.

We encourage students to cultivate Christian virtue and an appropriate sense of social responsibility.

We inspire an enthusiasm for life-long learning and are committed to success for all.
