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.

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.
