School History

Christ the King Catholic Primary School in Newcomb was originally built in 1965, with Father Richard Rafter (dec) being the founding Parish Priest and Mrs Pam Lazaro the founding Principal. At this time the school consisted of two classrooms, a chapel and staff facilities. In 1968, three more classrooms, a canteen and an office were added and later that year two more classrooms were needed. Building commenced again in 2001 at Christ the King. A new administration building, complete with staffroom, teachers preparation room and storage areas, was completed during that year.

By 2012 Christ the King Primary School Newcomb had developed into a school with modern amenities to accommodate a current and relevant curriculum for the education of children. Included in our amenities are two open plan-learning environments and a P/1/2 block to accommodate personalised learning for all students.

As part of the Federal Government’s Building Education Revolution (BER) program, a modern school hall was built, and part of the existing church hall was converted into a soundproofed music room. The open grounds include a well-equipped playground and big oval provide students with ample opportunity to be active.
