The Graduate at Graduation

The Saint Ignatius' College Graduate Distinction

Upon graduation, it is hoped that students of Saint Ignatius’ College will display a range of qualities and characteristics that distinguish them from other students.

In their time at the College and as part of their transformation into young men and women of competence, conscience and compassion, the school strives to develop graduates who are Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving and Committed to Justice.

Our graduates will be Open to Growth if they are willing to try new and different things and have the courage to move outside of established comfort zones or boundaries.  They will be Intellectually Competent as indicated by their success in their chosen courses and in their readiness to move into life beyond school.

Finally, they will be Religious, Loving and Committed to Justice if, through their actions, they display a genuine concern for others, especially those in our world who are disadvantaged or forced to live on the margins of society.  Their willingness to take action for those in need will flow from their understanding of Gospel values and be nurtured by their relationship with God.

Our graduates are part of an international network of students who have all passed through Jesuit educational institutions and who recognise the importance of taking action to bring ‘light’ to our world.
