Dear all, we are providing learning at school and have also got teachers developing online and hard copy resources to support learning this week. If you are reading this message on your phone and you do not have sufficient home internet and computing devices to access online learning please contact the school by phone so we can assist you with home learning resources for this week.
We are a member of the City of Hobart Partnership Schools. An exciting collaboration to provide specialised pathways to the successful completion of year 12 for all students. We work with Elizabeth College and Ogilvie Girls High School to deliver learning to over 2,000 students across the 3 campuses. Our school provides boys only learning in classes in years 7 and 8 ( Middle School). In years 9-12 we provide a mix of boys only and coed classes. Students in years 9-12 can study at either of the campuses or at all three. This allows each partner school to provide a broader curriculum and more individual-focused education. The partner school model provides shared student support services in many areas and will assist with an effective transition from one stage of schooling to the next.
Together we provide our students with a high-quality education that is facilitated through a caring and supportive school environment. We acknowledge and cater to the differentiated needs and talents of each and every boy in our care. New Town High School prepares students for further and continuing education, for future employment and to be positive members of a democratic society. We endeavour to develop boys of resilient and respectful character who can lead fulfilling and productive lives within our increasingly globalised and technologically advanced society.
Our 700 boys prosper from first-class learning activities in the fields of academic study, health and physical education, social development, cultural pursuits and special interest programs. This commitment is met through the structures of the curriculum and through the creation of a positive and supportive learning environment in which boys are challenged to maximize their educational opportunities. Our teaching teams are engaged in continuous cycles of professional inquiry that foster ongoing professional development in our pursuit of teaching excellence.
Parents choose New Town High School for their sons’ secondary education for a variety of reasons. We celebrate a proud heritage with a strong professional reputation which has been developed through family association, valued traditions, excellence in teaching and learning, sport, international opportunity and extra-curricula activities.
Our timeless and ever-relevant motto, ‘We Build for the Future’ highlights the forward-thinking nature of the programs that we offer. Our motto, vision, mission and core values statements guide our strategic directions and influence our professional decision-making processes. We embed our finest traditions and professional heritage as We Build For The Future.
Through a combination of hard work and generous support the Prefects and House Captains have been able to raise funds for our two new flags poles which were gifted to the school today. This project was chosen for its community significance and demonstration of pride in our school, country and heritage.
This gift also celebrated our school Centenary as is a part of the 100 year celebrations that have been planned for this year.
We would like to thank you all our supporters for their significant contribution which allowed the Prefects and House Captains to complete this project.
Thank you to:
The Honourable Elise Archer MP
