  • Congratulations to our Year 10 mathematics enrichment group who claimed the top prize as the “Best Performing School” at the Talented Students Day on Tuesday, 20 March. The group worked through a variety of competitive problem-solving challenges of increasing difficulty to earn their trophy. Special mention to Adrian Freiburg and Charlie Nicholas, as they took out the top points score of the day.🏆#newingtoncollege
  • Wet weather didn’t dampen the excitement for the Newington Prep Inter-House Cross Country run this morning! Lindfield and Wyvern boys were full of energy and put forward their best efforts for two long laps around the Stanmore campus. 🏃‍♂️ #newingtoncollege
  • Thumbs up to our littlest Newingtonians, who made it through the official opening of the Newington College Early Learning Centre today with barely a wriggle! It might have had something to do with the beautiful singing by the Wyvern Choir - or the fact that Minister for Early Childhood Education, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Assistant Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell roped in several pint-sized helpers to unveil the official plaque. #newingtoncollege
