Senior School Activities
Saint Ignatius’ College is a busy school and as well as day to day lessons, students have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of activities – contributing to the College’s ideal of development of the whole person.
Types of Activities
Year Levels attend a morning Chapel Service once a week instead of Home Group.
College Masses are usually held twice every term in the Dennett Centre, including the Mass of the Holy Spirit, which is held at the beginning of the year.
Voluntary Student Masses are held throughout each term.
Year Level Assemblies also occur on occasion, usually during Pastoral Care periods.
Middle Years and Senior Years House Sport tournaments are held during lunchtime throughout the year, and House performances take place during Term Two.
The Athletics and Swimming Carnivals are held during Term One. College Musicals are held biennially with Theatre Arts, an event that encompasses all areas of Performing Arts, occurring in the alternate year.
Each Year Level participates in a Day of Reflection. Students in Year Eight attend camp whilst students in Years Seven and Ten participate in Activity Days. Students in Years Nine are involved in the Student Teams of Action and Reflection (STAR) Program and Wellbeing days.
Mission Fete Day involves students setting up and participating in food and games stalls to raise money for the College’s Jesuit Missions. The particular focus at the moment is the recently established Jesuit school in Timor Leste.
Students may also be involved in:
- Language and cultural tours to Europe or Indonesia
- Immersions to Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Timor Leste, or to Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory (Daly River & Bathurst Island)
- Year Nine students can participate in the Civics and Citizenship program which sees them touring venues in both Adelaide and Canberra that relate to Australia’s political, social and cultural development.
- Jesuit schools sporting exchanges

The aim is for our students to make the most of all the opportunities offered to them at the College, and to use their God-given gifts and talents to their full potential and in the service of others.
