During the middle years of schooling, Newman College provides opportunities for young people to learn and grow in ways that acknowledge and respect this unique and special phase of their development.

The Head of Year oversees a Pastoral Care Program, tailored to the unique needs of the students in the year group. The program is delivered in a variety of formats and may include the Pastoral Care Group teacher, College Counsellors and Campus Minister.
