2019 Term 1 Week 3
From the Principal

I recently saw an account of archaeologists unearthing the remains of the Batavia shipwreck. These days, there is a group trying to find the wreck of Shackleton’s ship the Endurance. The two stories... read more
Ignatian Ethos
Your child may be coming home and telling you about the Examen. For those who are new to the College, don’t worry this is not any type of exam we give students every week; it is a way of praying.

From the Head of Junior School
This Monday Class Six Blue spoke of what leadership meant to them. Supporting a friend in need, helping out at home or in the class, caring for others, and standing up for what is right were among those answers offered by the children − all reasons that would make you proud to be their parents.
