What a week it’s been in school! On Sunday our Year 10 Rugby boys competed in the semi finals of the National U15s School Vase at the Allianz Stadium. Although they did not win, the fact they even got that far (as the only state comprehensive left standing in the competition) and the fact they acquitted themselves so well on and off the field means we are very proud of them all and their coaches Mr Horscroft and Mr Lester-Card. Huge thanks as well to all the other staff, parents and supporters who helped them along the way. Another group of our students who absolutely shone this week were our dancers who last night performed at the Dome in “Let’s Dance” and closed the show. Huge thanks to Mrs Thomas who in just six months has taken Dance at Newman from strength to strength. Both events demonstrated students working at their personal best and understanding the importance of being “a link in a chain” and part of the Newman team.
