Message from the Principal, Lauretta Graham

Dear Families

It is a privilege to welcome you to Newman Catholic College. While we wait for our College to be constructed our school office is in the Smithfield Shopping Centre opposite K-Mart.  Since the start of 2021, we have made steady progress towards creating the foundations of our new College opening in January 2022, with approximately 125 students.

Those who already know our school, will be aware that the success so far has been achieved through the persistence and hard work of many wonderful people especially Catholic Education Services under the Leadership of our Executive Director, William Dixon.

I look forward to leading our future leadership team, staff, students, and parents in this exciting work over the years of development.
