Newtown, is a district in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. Over the years Newtown has evolved into a fairly well developed business area with large residences being converted into business places or being torn down with the intention to build a more business like location.
One of the older buildings which has retained most of its historical look is the St. Patrick’s R.C. Church. Newtown is one of the areas which had at least one primary school for boys and one for girls, which is the Newtown Boys and Newtown Girls. Known for success in academics and Music Festival competitions, these schools are located on either side of the St. Patrick’s R.C. Church with access from Maraval Road.
