2020 Term 3 Week 7
From the Principal
Earlier this year, I wrote to families to advise that the College was temporarily postponing plans to progress the work for our Junior School building development. This decision was taken as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic were emerging and there was much uncertainty about the way ahead. There is no doubt that COVID-19 is still very much with us, and the future is still unclear, but what has become... read more

Division 2 First XI Soccer Grand Final
Having already faced off in a tough 1-1 draw against Norwood Morialta High School this season, we knew we were in for a torrid battle in the Division 2 Grand Final. Both teams were cagey early on, with many long balls out of defence from two sides who were clearly nervous. Once both teams settled, the football improved, with NHMS having the line share of territory and possession and Ignatius looking... read more

From the Head of Junior School
This week our Year 3 classes have enjoyed a day of reflection in support of their sacramental journey towards their First Reconciliation. Themes explored included the choices we make in life and God’s infinite love that he has for each one of us. Love is not transactional. We know we are loved, irrespective of our actions and not just because of what we do (by our actions) but just as we are.... read more
