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 biennial publications featuring news articles and stories from staff, boys and members of the Newington community across all three campuses.
The annual Results Magazine showcases all 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 Newingtonian Digitised
The Newingtonian has been chronicling the lives and achievements of boys and staff since 1884. A project to digitise The Newingtonian, nearing completion, will make this wonderful resource available online.
According to sociologist Joyce Levy Epstein, “Partnerships recognise the shared responsibilities of home, school and community for children’s learning and development.”1 Over the years, Newington has cultivated many effective partnerships among boys, parents, teachers, Old Boys and the community at local, national and international levels.
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’.
Autumn News 2014
In addition to the various sporting and co-curricular opportunities available to boys at the College, 2014 marked the year in which Newington put on its biennial Musical, Oliver! Under the direction of Head of Drama Ms Tamara Smith and Head of Music Mr Mark Scott, a cast and crew of 88 students took to the stage at NIDA in the Charles Dickens classic story about a young orphan named Oliver Twist.
Spring News 2014
The theme for the Spring 2014 edition of News is ‘International Mindedness’. This edition explores the various ways in which the College celebrates cultural diversity, fosters ideas of international citizenship, encourages boys to recognise human commonality and understand local, national and international perspectives.
In 2013 Newington College celebrated its 150th Anniversary. The Sesquicentenary celebrations held throughout the year honoured our founders, acknowledged the past and ongoing contributions of so many and looked to the future with confidence and pride. The College hosted a number of big events including a Sesquicentenary Founders Day Concert at Sydney Town Hall as well as a special visit from former NSW Governor, Her Excellency, Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO.
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.
