Message from the Principal

Newman Senior Technical College is a senior secondary school for students in Years 11 and 12 which has a rich history and tradition of excellence and innovation. The College celebrates 37 years at the forefront of Vocational Education and Training with the establishment of St Joseph’s Vocational College in 1979.

The opportunities that students at Newman Senior Technical College are offered are truly unique. Students study their HSC in combination with specialised ‘on’ and ‘off the job’ training in ‘state of the art’ facilities with industry standard equipment. This takes place in a caring and disciplined environment where the holistic development and care for each individual is of the highest importance.

I am delighted that you have taken the opportunity to visit our website and I encourage you to take time to visit our College in person.

Newman Senior Technical College has a renowned past and an exciting future and I extend an invitation to students, parents and employers to be part of our dynamic community.
