Principal's message

Welcome to the Newman Senior HIgh School website.  Whether you are already a member of the school community, a prospective member or simply interested in finding out more about the school, as you explore the pages of this site I hope you will sense the energy and importance we place in being at the heart of the community of Newman.

Newman SHS is the Iron Heart of Education in the mining town of Newman in the Pilbara. We pride ourselves on strong values, building sustainable partnerships with the community and striving toward success for every student. 

We are proud to be an Independent Public School. Our merit selected, dedicated staff partner with the community to provide an enriched curriculum, responsive to community needs, where all students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of academic, vocational and co-curricular activities. 

If you are a family moving to Newman I encourage you to contact us for further information. Our goal is to make the transition for your secondary-aged children as smooth as possible.  If you are visiting the town prior to your move, please contact us for a tour of the school.

Warm regards
