Each year we produce a number of print and digital publications with news and updates about our College, staff and students.
THE NEWINGTONIAN has been our College's annual yearbook recording the lives and achievements of boys and staff since 1884.
NEWS MAGAZINE is a biannual publication featuring news articles and stories from staff, boys and members of the Newington community across all three campuses.
THE ANNUAL RESULTS MAGAZINE showcases the latest results from our graduating Year 12 boys. Both HSC and IB Diploma Programme results are featured with a special section from the boys on useful study tips and advice for future Year 12s.
The theme for the autumn edition of News magazine is Integrity, one of the qualities Newington College cultivates in the ‘Great Hearts’ of our students. Integrity means being true to yourself and your values, being honest, following through on commitments and striving to be your best self. This edition celebrates integrity at all of our campuses, from the early role modelling of integrity by ELC staff working with our youngest students to philosophy lessons and leadership opportunities at our prep schools and the academic and personal integrity demanded in the senior years.
The theme for the spring edition of News is ‘rigour’. At Newington College, we offer our students many opportunities and in return expect boys to show commitment and effort in their school work as well as their sporting and co-curricular pursuits. This edition of News explores rigour both in and beyond the classroom across all four campuses.
The theme for the autumn edition of News magazine is ‘journeys’. The very best sort of journeys combine that sense of physical change of place with real learning, or in some cases an epiphany. Newington College is a community steeped in diversity and inclusiveness. Our social service journeys bring our boys into contact with a wide array of people from all walks of life, all colours and creeds, and are an integral part of a Newington education.
The theme for the spring edition of News magazine is ‘gratitude’. Headmaster Dr David Mulford will retire at the end of 2018 after 10 years of service. He will leave with much gratitude for the exciting opportunities that he’s had while leading the College. He has nurtured all aspects of the College including diversity, community, relationships, character development, resilience and a sense that Newington is a school for all.
The theme for the autumn edition of News magazine is ‘opportunity’. Opportunity is a word that engenders optimism, hope, positivity and encouragement. Yet it does not guarantee success. Work, preparation, resilience, rigour, persistence and effort must be applied. Our educational focus on character, resilience and the skills of learning encourage all to take a brave step toward responding to opportunities.
Autumn News 2017
The theme for the autumn edition of News magazine is ‘risk’. Risk is defined as the potential of gaining or losing something of value. Although risk sometimes has negative connotations, at Newington, risk-taking is fundamental to academic growth, character development and human endeavour.
Spring News 2017
The theme for the spring edition of News magazine is ‘Legacy’. The blazer photographed for the cover of this edition belongs to our Head of Sport, Mr James Godfrey (ON 1993). It is a tangible record of only some of his legacy to the College. James is a man of substance and resilience who now encourages current boys to achieve their personal bests. When our boys look back at their time at the College, it is hoped that they, like James, will be proud of the legacy they have left behind.
Autumn News 2016
According to sociologist Joyce Levy Epstein, “Partnerships recognise the shared responsibilities of home, school and community for children’s learning and development.” Over the years, Newington has cultivated many effective partnerships among boys, parents, teachers, Old Boys and the community at local, national and international levels.
Spring News 2016
The theme for the spring 2016 edition of News magazine is ‘Measurement’. Though we cannot put a numerical measurement on each individual boy’s journey at Newington, we are constantly analysing and charting various aspects of school life to ensure all boys are getting the most out of their education.
The theme for the autumn 2015 edition of News magazine is ‘He Cares’. A Newington education does not come with a sense of entitlement. We expect all boys to know when to serve, step up, and speak out for others.
The theme for the spring 2015 edition of News is ‘The Big Idea: Uniting the Learning Philosophy’. The College is strategically directed by three main guiding principles: What is best for boys, a learning focus and an intent to ‘Discover what’s possible’.
At the beginning of each year, the College compiles a summary of all the latest HSC and IB results from the previous year’s graduating class. Read all about our high achievers and what they have in mind for the future by clicking on the editions below.
Each year, boys across a range of years at Newington College have the opportunity to submit their best works of prose, art and literature from the year to New Enigma. Both written and edited by the boys.
