Community Connections

NPS plays a vital role in the local community.

The children’s artwork regularly livens up the town, with showings at the DIG café or at the Newstead Railway Arts Hub for example. The local pool is the setting for end of year games and festivities as well as the swimming carnival. The Newstead community centre hosts school concerts and events.

The school’s children are actively involved in the local football, netball and cricket clubs. Parents engage in a variety of community activities such as volunteering at the swimming pool, coaching children in their sporting pursuits or helping out at the community gardens.

Growing up in Newstead, going to the local school and participating in local community activities reinforces a sense of community responsibility and connectedness for the children. NPS actively supports these connections.
