Every year, John Henry Newman Catholic College set aside 6 days to make a real Impact on the learning of our students by providing them with experiences which open up their hearts and minds to new possibilities. The Impact day programme is designed to complement the academic learning back in the classroom and to motivate the students to achieve at the highest level. We are currently halfway through this year’s Impact day programme and are already seeing great fruits for our labours.
