2019 Term 4 Week 6
From the Principal

I refer to this here because last week at our IEY, the... read more
From the Rector
One of the Jesuits murdered 30 years ago last week in El Salvador was Ignacio Ellacuría. He was the Rector of the University of Central America and a respected philosopher and theologian. He put forth a vision of a university in an address at Santa Clara University in 1982. It struck me how the vision is still contemporary and can apply to any educational endeavour including our College at Saint... read more

From the Head of Junior School
Would you have noticed the star in the sky? Or would you have been too busy and distracted? Under the shade of our trees and with a fresh morning breeze, our outdoor liturgy this week focused on Advent as a time of expectation, preparation, and hope.
