From the Principal

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Newman Primary School. Our culture of responsibility, accountability and care align with our vision of ‘we are committed to providing a holistic, relevant and targeted education for each child that will provide them with a strong foundation for future learning in a rapidly changing and diverse society.’ We aim to be a school focusing on quality teaching and ensuring that each child gets the best education that equips him/her with the skills to adapt and flourish within a changing world. It is a privilege to be able to work with the school community to ensure that, as a school, we develop the whole child. Our actions are guided by the four elements of the Newman Primary School code- cooperation, respect, responsibility and safety.

Together we grow!

Catering for students in Kindergarten – Year 6, the school has a commitment to creating a positive and supportive environment for our students, both in and out of the classroom. This is a school where student excellence and success is nurtured, self- esteem and resilience are reinforced, and everyone works together towards achieving shared goals.

Our teaching programs allow all students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident learners in the 21st Century. We are proud of our reputation in offering a diverse range of subjects including Science, Technologies, languages (Chinese), Health, the Arts and Physical Education which are taught by specialist teachers. In addition to traditional learning programs, Newman Primary School offers programs that seek to develop important social and emotional attributes of all students.

Our priority is always your child, and in developing a close relationship with our school community. I look forward to welcoming you to our school in person.
