2018 Term 4 Week 4

2018 Term 4 Week 4
From the Principal
On the weekend, I noticed for the first time that Christmas decorations had appeared in some shopping centres. Initially I was somewhat annoyed as I thought that there are still more than seven weeks until Christmas and that this unashamed grab for the consumers’ dollar was pretty manipulative.

He has been part of the Saint Ignatius’ College community for 41 years, and has devoted more years to Saint Ignatius’ College, Adelaide, than any other Jesuit. Following some recent medical issues, Fr Brian McCoy our Provincial, has asked Father Terry to move to Campion House in Melbourne to recuperate.... read more
Ignatian Ethos
Last term I began sharing the Characteristics of a Jesuit Education in this column. So far we’ve looked at the first three.

From the Head of Junior School
In celebrating All Saints Day Mass, our Rector, Fr Peter Hosking SJ, asked the children if they knew the names of any saints. "Saint Joseph, Saint Ignatius, Saint Mary" were offered in reply to Father's question, but the answer that brought most delight to all was offered from a child in Reception, "How about Saint Father Peter Hosking SJ?"  Offering a perfect tie into the homily, Father Peter... read more
