At Newman Primary School selected students are able to participate in Academic Extension classes. In Semester 1, 2017 this program is being conducted by Miss Danica Ilich and focuses on the area of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). This program forms part of the general curriculum that is offered to selected students. Not only does the program seek to extend students' understanding and knowledge in the STEM area, but also to develop higher order thinking and problem solving skills.
Our Academic Extension program is another example of providing a targeted and holistic approach towards the education of our students.
