History

Newington House, Silverwater
Newington College, Stanmore

At the Methodist Conference of 1862, the Rev John Manton proposed that a collegiate institute, "decidedly Wesleyan in character", be founded in Sydney. It was expected that the school would "be open to the sons of parents of all religious denominations", and on Thursday 16 July 1863, the Wesleyan Collegiate Institute opened with 16 boys and a small number of theological students. As no suitable buildings were available in Sydney at the time, Newington House, the centrepiece of the 1,200-acre (4.9 km2) John Blaxland's estate at Silverwater, was leased.

Newington College, as the school soon became known, prospered during its time on the Parramatta River and in 1869 was the first Australian school to play rugby football (against the University of Sydney),[9] and soon after was the first school in Australia to hold an athletics carnival.[citation needed] The Newington College Cadet Unit is the oldest corps in the Australian Army Cadets.

Expanding student numbers meant that more extensive premises closer to the city were required. A bequest, by John Jones, of land at Stanmore, saw the College move to the newly fashionable inner-city suburbs in 1880. By resolution of the College Council, the name Newington College was perpetuated on the new site, and Newington has remained at Stanmore ever since. Seventy school and theological students migrated from Silverwater to Stanmore, and took residence in the grand stone edifice, designed by Thomas Rowe, that is still the centrepiece of Newington. The architectural historian Morton Herman said of Rowe's design, "the 1881 building is an almost perfect example of scholastic Gothic Revival architecture".[10]

A gymnasium was built in 1890, and a swimming pool was opened in 1894. Newington ceased to be a Methodist theological training school in 1915, when Leigh College was founded at Strathfield South. In 1921, a stone War Memorial, designed by Old Newingtonian William Hardy Wilson, was opened in memory of those old boys who had paid the supreme sacrifice in World War I. A separate preparatory school was first opened in 1921, after a bequest by Sir Samuel McCaughey. It became known as "Wyvern House" in 1938, when a new building was opened by Old Newingtonian Sir Percival Halse Rogers.

In 1925 a rowing facility was built at Abbotsford, and in 1957 an additional preparatory school was founded on the North Shore - first at Killara, but now at Lindfield. Since the Second World War, the College buildings and facilities have expanded significantly. A new Physical Education Centre, opened by Old Newingtonian Nick Farr-Jones AM, and a new boatshed at Abbotsford are two of the most recent additions. In 1998, Wyvern House moved to a separate campus in Cambridge Street, Stanmore, and the former building was renovated and renamed the Le Couteur Wing.[11]

Recent Events

During 2006, the press reported on an industrial relations dispute at Newington. The then Headmaster, David Scott said that "The action was taken after a comprehensive review of the school and had nothing to do with the federal government's Work Choices reforms"[12] The Sydney Morning Herald reported that David Scott believed that the union was being mischievous "at best", or using an "outright and deliberate lie" in suggesting the restructure was linked to workplace legislation.[13] Following a meeting between the Independent Education Union and Newington College, David Scott agreed not to declare senior staff positions vacant and the school continued to negotiate collective arrangements covering salary and working conditions for staff. [14]

College staff

Presidents and Headmasters

From its founding in 1863 until 1900, Newington had a system of dual control with a President (who was an ordained minister) and a Headmaster. As an ordained minister, Charles Prescott assumed both roles on his appointment in 1900 and on his retirement in 1931 the role of President was abolished.

Campuses

Founders' Wing, Newington College
Le Couteur Wing, built as Wyvern House and designed by Lt Col Alfred Warden VD, 1938
Lindfield Preparatory School

Newington College is situated over three suburban campuses, located in Stanmore and Lindfield:[1]

Secondary school

The secondary campus is located in Stanmore, in Sydney's inner-west. The student body consists of approximately 50 boarders and 1,050 day students from Years 7 to 12. Newington boarders come from country and city, interstate and overseas. Day students are drawn from all over the Sydney greater metropolitan area.[3]

Wyvern House preparatory school

Newington has educated primary school (Kindergarten to Year 6) aged boys since 1863. In 1938 Wyvern House opened in a separate school building on the Stanmore campus and accepted its first students in 1939. Wyvern moved to new premises in Cambridge Street, Stanmore, a few minutes' walk from the secondary school, in 1998. It has approximately 370 students - all day students. There are two classes each in Years K to 4 and three classes in Years 5 to 6. The Head of Wyvern House is Ian Holden [15]

Lindfield preparatory school

The Newington College Preparatory School was established initially at Killara (1957) and later at Lindfield (1967), in response to requests from Old Newingtonians that a preparatory school be established on the North Shore of Sydney. The Head of Newington College, Lindfield, is Chris Wyatt. [16] It is a single-stream school, with approximately 160 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and is set in a bushland location where the Students are constantly in touch with nature. The school features a basketball/tennis court, climbing gym areas, swimming pool and connects to the bush trails of Swain Gardens. Each classroom includes effective information communication technology tools. Classrooms have dedicated computer and wet areas, and bag storage areas. There are also specialist facilities for music, art and French. There is a tuckshop three days a week. The campus has just undergone a major redevelopment of classrooms and the addition of a new hall, library and visual arts room. [17] Students in Years 3–6 compete in the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) Competition held on Saturday mornings. Every student competes in a summer (basketball or cricket) or winter sport (rugby or soccer). Newington's preparatory schools combine for annual carnivals in swimming, athletics and cross country. [18]

War Memorials

Memorial to the Dead 1914-1918,
designed by William Hardy Wilson, 1921

The grounds and buildings of Newington College contain numerous war memorials and eight of these are recorded on the New South Wales Government's Register of War Memorials in New South Wales.[19]

Memorial to the Dead 1914-1918

The sandstone Memorial to the Dead was designed by the Old Newingtonian architect William Hardy Wilson and is now sited between the Centenary Hall and the Chapel. It was originally placed in a grove of trees to the north of the Founders Wing but was moved to its present location in the early 1960s to make way for the construction of the Centenary Hall which was opened in 1963. The memorial comprises a semi-circular wall and seat, with pillars surmounted by white stone urns at either end and a column with a sundial stands at the centre. The inscription on the wall reads:

1914 - To Our Beloved Dead - 1918

and the inscription on the sundial reads:

Time dims not their sacrifice.

The memorial was dedicated on 11 May 1922 by the Governor General of Australia and the Old Newingtonian poet Leslie Holdsworth Allen wrote a poem, To our beloved dead, in memory of the occasion.[20]

Gallipoli Lone Pine Memorial

Commemorating Prisoners of War during World War I, this tree comes from a seedling propagated from a pine cone brought home from Gallipoli by an Australian soldier. The tree stands in a triangular area of grass formed by the merging of the Cowlishaw Drive and the War Memorial Drive. A bronze commemorative plaque on a stone plinth has the following inscription:

The Gallipoli Lone Pine - During the 1914-1918 Great War, Australian and New Zealand forces landed at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915 to attack Turkish forces. Eight months later they withdrew. One significant battle occurred on the ridge where a lone pine stood. ANZAC forces finally occupied the Turkish position, but with the tragic loss of 2,227 men. Turkish losses were around 5,000. During the withdrawal from ANZAC Cove, an Australian soldier picked up a pine cone and brought it home, where the seeds were propagated. Since 1933, when the pines became of good size and yielded more seedlings, Legacy arranged for pine trees to be distributed to schools and interested groups to help keep the memory of the Gallipoli Lone Pine alive.

[21]

Chapel Memorial Tablets

Twenty four brass plaques were hung in Prescott Hall as memorials to individual Old Newingtonians who died during World War I. Further plaques were added after World War II but they were all removed when the hall was renovated in 1979. They were then placed on the first floor balcony of the War Memorial Classroom Block. They were later placed in the archives collection. In 1995 they were restored and repositioned in the chapel's glass ambulatory overlooking the 1914-1918 Memorial to the Dead.[22]

War Memorial Driveway

In 1936 the War Memorial Drive was planted with 75 poplars, each with a cross at the foot and a plaque honouring individual Old Newingtonians who died during World War II. The trees were replaced by a new avenue of trees in 1966 and the plaques were replaced by a tablet on a plinth with the inscription:

Lest We Forget - This plaque was dedicated on 24 September 1966, to mark the planting of trees alongside the War Memorial Drive by the Old Newingtonians' Union to restore those originally planted by the Union on 29 February 1936. By this act Old Newingtonians remember those Old Boys who gave their lives in the service of God, King and Country, and whose names are recorded on the War Memorial of the School.

Fifty of the original plaques remain in the archives collection. In 1979 the War Memorial Drive was realigned and replanted and the 1966 plinth was moved to the Millner Gates end of the drive.[23]

Boer War Honour Roll

A bronze tablet recording the names of 44 Old Newingtonians who served in the Boer War hangs in Prescott Hall in the Founders Wing. It is set in a Gothic frame of columns with a plinth and cornice. The inscription reads:

Floreat Newingtonia - Erected by Old Boys of Newington College in honour of Newingtonians who fought for the Empire in South Africa 1899-1902.

The Memorial was designed by Old Newingtonian architects Henry Budden and William Hardy Wilson and was dedicated on 15 December 1903.[24]

World War I Honour Roll

Over six hundred Old Newingtonians enlisted during World War I and the loss of life was appalling. By wars end, 109 Old Boys had died for God, King and Country. Prior to 1920 the walls of the vestibule at the entrance to the Founders Wing had been hung with sporting teams photographs. In 1921 this space was transformed by the installation of white marble tablets, encased in Queensland maple, upon which were inscribed the names of Old Boys who had served. Those who had made the supreme sacrifice are listed on the central panels below the words:

These Nobly Strining, Nobly Fell.

With a black and white marble floor and stained glass door panels this space takes on the feel of a small chapel.[25]

World War II Honour Roll

A wall of brass and enamel panels in the Centenary Hall foyer records the names of the 814 Old Newingtonians who served in Australia's armed forces in World War II. The inscription reads:

Honour Roll of Old Newingtonians WWII 1939-1945.

This honour roll was dedicated on Anzac Day 2009 by Old Newingtonian Major General Sandy Pearson AO DSO OBE MC and replaces a roll in the same position that was unveiled by Sir William Morrow DSO ED in 1966.[26]

Post-World War II Honour Roll

This wooden honour board records the names of 45 Old Newingtonians who served in Australia's armed forces in conflicts post-World War II and is on the southern wall of the Centenary Hall foyer. It is inscribed:

In every generation good men must defend what they believe to be right and Newington remembers with pride her sons who served their sovereign and country in the cause of liberty in international conflicts from 1948 to 1973.

It commemorates service in the Korean War, Malayan Emergency, Malaysian-Indonesian Confrontation and Vietnam War.[27]

Curriculum

The school teaches the core curriculum outlined by the NSW Board of Studies (BOS) between Kindergarten and Year 8. In addition to this curriculum, the students study one major language other than English. From Years 9 to 12, students adhere to the Board of Studies curriculum standards that all NSW schools follow.

Newington became an IB World School in May 2007,[28] and from 2008 has offered the International Baccalaureate (IB) to Year 11 students,[2] as an alternative to the Higher School Certificate (HSC).

Old Newingtonians' Union

The Old Newingtonians' Union is the alumni association of Newington College. It was founded in 1895, with the Newington College President, Rev Dr James Egan Moulton, as its inaugural President and Sir Thomas Bavin as Secretary.[33]

The aims of the Union, as stated in its constitution, are to:

"strengthen the bonds between Old Newingtonians and between Old Newingtonians and the College; foster and develop active participation in, and support of, the affairs of the College and of the Union; support and promote the Newington Foundation and the Old Newingtonians' Union Centennial Trust; organise and carry out social functions in pursuance of the objects of the Union; promote the interests and welfare of the College in all its aspects; commemorate those Old Newingtonians who have given their lives in the service of their country; and provide club facilities for members of the Union either solely or in conjunction with other clubs, unions or associations of ex-students of other schools".[34]

A bi-annual publication, Newington Wyvern is sent to all old boys whose current addresses are known to the Union. The Union previously published directories of Old Newingtonians at five yearly intervals[35] but that publication has been superseded by an on-line directory.

Affiliated organisations of the Union are: Wyvern Cricket Club, playing in the Sydney Suburban Competition; Lodge Wyvern, a Masonic Lodge; and The 70 Club, a luncheon club for senior Old boys. The Old Newingtonians' Union is a member of the GPS Old Boys Unions' Council.

ONU Presidents

Presidents of the Union are now normally elected for two one-year terms and are supported by a council. The council is made up of a treasurer, a secretary and assistant, councillors, metropolitan vice-presidents, regional vice-presidents and past presidents. During the Centenary of Newington College Sir Keith Jones was President of the Union (1963 & 1964) and in the Centenary year of the Union His Honour Judge Fred Kirkham was President (1995 & 1996). The current Chairman of Newington College Council, The Hon. Justice Angus Talbot, has also served as President (1997 & 1998). Other notable Presidents of the union include: The Hon.
