This year we will be part of a pilot project initiated by Sydney Catholic Schools to explore the expansion of the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program. As part of the pilot project, parents and 2020 Year 7 students of St Patrick’s College, Sutherland will be invited to submit an application form to be considered for a placement in a Year 7 Newman Selective cohort in 2020. If you choose to apply for a placement, your child will sit the Newman Selective Assessment which has been designed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). This will be held in Term 1, 2019. Details regarding the test will be shared following your application.
