Co-Curricular

Confirm your son’s choices for sport and music through the online forms below.

Welcome to… opportunity, enjoyment, challenge and success

Whether a boy’s interest is more sporting, creative or cultural, Newington College aims to involve all Year 7 students no matter what their passion.

Newington College prides itself on offering a vast array of activities for our boys to try over the course of their first year in secondary school.  Whether a boy’s interest is more sporting, creative or cultural, Newington College aims to involve all Year 7 students no matter what their passion.

Our Co-curricular program is full of opportunities for enjoyment, challenge and success – all of which help build the boys’ confidence. We hope you will encourage your son/ward to experience what is on offer in our Co-curricular Program so that he can develop his interests and skills, explore previously untried sports or activities and perhaps even discover a natural talent.

We are already planning for the boys’ arrival in 2018 and firstly, need you to confirm your son/ward’s choices for sport and music through the online forms below.

We look forward to his enthusiastic participation.

Trials and Training

Every Year 7 student starts his Co-Curricular journey at Newington with a clean slate.  While evidence of past experience/expertise is taken into consideration, every boy is given a fair and equal chance to demonstrate skills in sports trials and creative arts auditions. We also take the time to review the boys’ development throughout the year and make changes based on these outcomes.

Sport Training

  • Tuesday afternoon training takes place within the timetable from 1:25 PM to 3:20 PM
  • An additional session will take place from 3:20 PM to 4:45 PM on Friday afternoon

Activities

Some of the additional co-curricular activities that are available for the boys in Year 7 are:

Chess Mr Graeme Downward
Debating Ms Kate Shepard
Drama Ensemble Ms Tamara Smith
Visual Arts Club Mr Andrew Thompson
Science Club Mr Craig Fitzsimmons
F1 Club Ms Karen Lak

Registration dates for the above activities will be communicated to the boys in the first few weeks of Term 1 and details regarding meeting times will be posted on the Co-curricular pages in SPACES. 

Some, such as the FED Cup Debating Competition, begin in the first weeks of Term 1, while Art Club will start later in Term 1 once the boys have settled.
