Newington College


Our approach

Sport is a proven part of the healthy development and wellbeing of children. At Newington, we focus on helping students to have a wonderful sporting experience by focusing our efforts on the process, not the outcomes.

We aim for students to:

  • Develop character through sporting experiences
  • Participate in enjoyable, meaningful, safe and fair competition
  • Reach their potential and experience their personal best
  • Create life-long, memorable moments

Stanmore Secondary Campus

Sport is a compulsory activity for all students from Year 7 to Year 12 at our secondary campus.

We aim to inspire students to be active for life and harness the power of sport to support wellbeing, develop character and make a positive contribution to society. Our vision is to provide an internationally respected school Sports Program empowering all students to be themselves at their best.

The AAGPS is an alliance of schools, designed to provide sporting experiences and weekly competitions that embraces the spirit of good sportsmanship.

Events include:

  • Head of the River Rowing Regatta
  • Swimming Carnivals
  • Athletics Carnivals

In addition to competing in AAGPS carnivals, weekly fixtures are organised across summer and winter seasons to cater for students of all sporting abilities.

Most students will train two afternoons per week from 3.30pm – 5.00pm and compete in organised fixtures on Saturday. These training sessions will be at College facilities or external venues. Newington College bus services will transport students to and from specific offsite training venues.

As part of TASP, we develop individual programs tailored for each student and encourage a balanced approach to help them reach their full potential – in both sport and in the academic, wellbeing and social aspects of their lives.
