2019 Term 2 Week 8

2019 Term 2 Week 8
From the Principal
On the weekend, a dozen or so staff from the Senior School travelled to Melbourne for the ordination of Kieran Gill. Father Gill SJ, as he is now, is well known to many of us since he spent over two years with us as a novice from January 2014 to July 2016. Since then he has been studying at Boston College in the USA, in preparation for his priestly ministry. Andy Nguyen was also ordained at the same... read more
From the Rector
This week we have had a number of activities to remind us of the plight of forcibly displaced peoples in the world. I have been privileged to spend some of my life in refugee camps. Through this, I have met some of the most resilient people possible. In 1988, I spent time in Site 2 on the Thai-Cambodia border. In the makeshift camp hospital, I visited an 11-year-old girl who had lost both legs and her... read more
From the Head of Senior School

Next week all Year Eleven students will be involved in four days of service in their community, and we have placements at nursing homes, childcare centres, the Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, and St Patrick’s... read more
Head of Studies and Innovation

We live in an educational time where there is a strong urge to acquire not only content knowledge but cognitive and human competencies (often referred to as capabilities), built on attitudes and values. This need will ensure that we not only prepare our students for their future working... read more
Ignatian Ethos
Our annual Ignatian Professional Development Day for staff this year focussed on the various ministries of the Jesuits in Australia. One of these is the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) and as this week is Refugee Week it is timely to share information about their mission. The JRS was founded in 1980 by Fr Pedro Arrupe SJ, largely in response to the humanitarian concerns of those fleeing Cambodia and Vietnam.... read more

At Saint Ignatius, many parents comment that we are gifted with a strong sense of community that feels like family.
