Mr Browne Speech

As a Jesuit school, St Aloysius’ College shares in a worldwide tradition of academic excellence dating back more than 500 years.

As such, the College strives to develop the God- given talents of each of its young people, with an emphasis on “improvement in living and learning to the greater glory of God and the common good.” (St Ignatius Loyola, 1491 – 1556).

Our pupils are part of a strong community and are taught to use their free will in a responsible manner through a clear set of moral and spiritual values. This creates an environment for individuals to grow and be challenged to develop their talents to the full.

Much of the work of Jesuit Formation at St Aloysius’ College is about allowing our young people to start their journey of discernment, which we hope will turn into a fulfilling adventure. This journey is one shared by families and the College community in partnership.

Since its foundation in 1859, the College has built an enviable academic reputation, with the majority of students moving on to university. Our pupils achieve such academic excellence without losing their many interests outside the classroom and a sense of fun.

As a College, we draw inspiration from the words of Jerome Nadal, an early companion of St Ignatius, which provide the core values of a Jesuit approach. I hope that these words will guide us as a College community moving forward:

In the spirit, from the heart, practically.
