Marist Brothers Newman College
Newman College is a pre-K–12 co-educational Catholic school which operates in the Marist tradition. It is currently a joint governed college with the governors being the Archbishop of Perth, Archbishop Barry Hickey, and the Provincial of the Marist Brothers of the Southern Province of Australia, Brother Paul Gilchrist. The College is a foundation member of the Association of Marist Schools of Australia (AMSA).
Like many Marist schools around Australia, Newman College has also being involved in cases and allegations dealing with child sexual abuse. One particular offender was Brother David Austin Christian, formerly principal of Marist Brothers' Newman College junior school in Perth, who pleaded guilty in 1995 to multiple counts of aggravated indecent assault against two boys (aged 10 and 11) in the principal's office.
