Saint Ignatius College, Geelong begins its first year


St Ignatius College, Geelong had its opening assembly for the year earlier this month, marking the beginning of its life as a Jesuit partner school

Students perform at the assembly. Australian Jesuit Provincial Fr Mark Raper and Province Education Delegate Fr Gerry Healy attended the opening school assembly on 6 February.

St Ignatius College is the only secondary co-educational Catholic school in the region, with students travelling from as far away as Lorne to attend.

Formerly known as Catholic Regional College Geelong, the school has undergone significant development over the past few years, adding new buildings and facilities.

Father Mark Raper presents a painting to the school. The partnership agreement means Xavier College in Melbourne will be assisting St Ignatius in implementing a Jesuit style of education, known as the Ignatian pedagogy.

To mark the new partnership, Fr Raper presented the college with two paintings, including one from Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, a former principal of St Francis Xavier School at Daly River, Northern Territory.

This is great for the college and for the Geelong region with the Jesuit presence in the region going to make a big difference to the faith perspective of the Geelong region and beyond. My youngest son went to the college and finished in 2004 before it completely relocated to Drysdale and he is doing well in his working position. I hope that the faith of the students comes alive with the Spirit of St. Ignatius now and in the future well done. May God Bless all the students and staff and parents involved in this wonderful partnership.
