Province Code of Conduct
In 2020 the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus released a new Code of Conduct associated with Child Protection and Professional Standards. The Code built upon the recommendations made by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and it was the result of an extended period of consultation and feedback from Stakeholders and Province ministries.

Child Protection and Policy Guidelines
The policy document on this page focuses on the children in our charge. Christians are obliged to care for their neighbour, but in a special way to also protect the weak and the innocent. The sad facts of child abuse are well known, as such any institution that accommodates young people must take special care to assure their security and safety.
Sporting Code of Conduct
Commitment to Safeguarding Children & Young People
The Society of Jesus, often referred to as "the Jesuits", was founded by Saint Ignatius Loyola more than 450 years ago. It is an international Catholic men’s religious order comprising priests, brothers and those in formation for these roles. The Australian Province of the Society had its beginnings with the arrival of the first Jesuits to Australia in 1848. Jesuits, lay staff and volunteers from the Province now minister throughout Australia and the world.
Since it began, the Province’s educational, social, spirituality and pastoral ministries have served children and young people under 18 as well as adults. We are committed to safeguarding the children and young people in our care.
Critical Incident Policy
Policy for Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults
The Australian Jesuit Province and institutions, including Jesuit schools, subscribe to the principles, protocols and standards of practice in the documents titled Towards Healing and Integrity in Ministry.
The policy document below details these principles, protocols and standards of practice for Jesuit institutions in Australia, and more particularly for Jesuit schools.
In addition, each Jesuit school has its own specific set of child protection guidelines, which supplement to the Province-wide statement of policy taking into account the particular circumstances of each school and relevant State legislative requirements.
Student Bullying and Harassment Policy
The aim of the Saint Ignatius’ College Student Bullying and Harassment Policy is to encourage students and teachers to act with care, courtesy, and consideration towards others at all times, and to follow support procedures that are understood by the whole College community.
