Starting from Pre-Kindergarten, Newman College offers a personalised 14 year learning journey for children, embracing their enthusiasm and unique individuality as they move from young children into adolescence, completing their education as young adults. 


Children and, most importantly, young minds are nurtured in the safe and supportive environment of the College’s dedicated Early Childhood Education campus. 

Newman College’s Early Childhood curriculum revolves around an informal, flexible play-based learning approach that moves a child through a developmental pathway towards literacy and numeracy. Throughout the journey, parents are closely involved in their child’s education and development.


The College’s Early Childhood program inspires children to demonstrate autonomy, curiosity, persistence, reasoning, problem-solving, responsibility, imagination and creativity!


From Kindergarten towards Year 2, children transition from curiously wondering about ‘what’ and ‘why’ to learning ‘how’ to do things.


Intertwined in your child’s learning journey is Newman College’s faith based curriculum following in the Marist traditions of fostering respect, dignity and love for one another.

The Learning Hub Project sees the oldest buildings at the Marcellin Campus, Blocks C and W, redeveloped.

It's the culmination of a planning process that commenced in 2016 with the commissioning of Newman College's Capital Development Plan.

Major Capital Development Project started in Term 4 2019.

Extensive planning has happened over the last three years that included an Educational Brief developed after the 2016-2017 community consultation of staff, students and families. This Brief and subsequent Design reflects Newman College's Vision for Learning Shine through Discovery – Let your light shine (Matthew 5:16).

The new Learning Hub encourages agility, movement and flexible learning environments to support a range of formal and informal learning activities, and provide opportunities for connections between year groups, staff and the broader community.

The Learning Hub will be a resource for children in Years 3 – 12 to enjoy. In particular, it provides flexible learning spaces, break-out areas, presentation zones and library resources that will service this broader student cohort.

The Learning Hub will provide focus for the College by joining several existing buildings in both function and circulation.

The Learning Hub incorporates:

  • Library space & quiet meeting areas inside C Block
  • New atrium over Marist Court
    Senior study areas
  • Group meeting spaces and upgraded toilets under W Block
    Classroom extensions and refurbishments in C Block on the upper floors
  • Bridge connecting C Block and W Block
  • Roof covering the entirety of Marist Court

These spaces provide opportunities for informal gathering of students, connection and movement to the forecourt and Chapel for large gatherings, space for informal learning and technology resources, as well as direct pathway system to Lavalla via a new bridge.

The grand stair from Founders Court into the Learning Hub will allow for students to access the Learning Hub from both sides.
