What others are saying about Newman
I started my senior years at at the same school I been attending from Years 7 to 10 because I wanted to go to university and pursue a career in teaching or law. I made the decision to move to Newman after term 1 in Year 11, because I felt that it was much too stressful for me personally. Little did I know that this would be the best decision that I could have ever made. Not only did I create life long friendships with amazing people, I created friendships with all the teachers, even those that weren't mine. Through the school’s work placement system I gained three jobs, one of which I am currently working at. By attending Newman, not only have I gained so many great memories, I also developed my ability to attend university. I am currently working in childcare and on the path to teaching. I am so lucky to have had these opportunities! Thanks to everyone at Newman.

When I studied Certificate II Metal & Engineering at Newman College, I was involved in a project that created a prototype of an underwater living space, which we called the Pod. This was an amazing experience as we got to create something meaningful, not to mention large, and we got exhibit the end product at a national event and meet the Dutch designers. Working on real projects from scratch has really helped me understand true scope of works and the demands of the industry.

At first, I wasn't really sure what to expect attending Newman and how I would go finishing without an ATAR. My uncertainty changed as I found myself achieving and thriving more than I could at my other school. I was able to gain the skills to work after, and during my time at school whilst getting the experience to eliminate career options in areas that didn't suit me. I was given plenty of assistance and was thoroughly informed about university opportunities and application forms. I am now in my first year of a bachelor of Criminal Justice, all accomplished without the overloading stress of a traditional school and whilst undertaking my HSC and other Nationally recognized certificates. I'm so glad I chose to study at Newman it really was an HSC like no other!

My time at Newman showed me how different school can be. I tried areas of workplacement in fields I wasn’t sure I would need. Being exposed to these different experiences gave me other skills that will help me be a better person throughout my life. I made a whole lot of new friends, that I will have for life, and generally feel that I am a better student and person for attending this College. I thank Newman for everything they offered me and how they helped me grow as a person.
