Saint Ignatius College Awards Assembly 2017

Posted 17-Feb-2017

To start the year, Saint Ignatius College conducted its Academic Awards Assembly at Costa Hall on Monday, February 6th.

This whole school community event coincided with the launch of our tenth anniversary year as Saint Ignatius College, Geelong.

All students, as well as teaching and non-teaching staff, attended this occasion.

We fittingly commenced the assembly with the following prayer, written by our Liturgy Coordinator Mr Brendan Nicholls.

We gather in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: AMEN.

Faithful Lord,

There were times last year when things moved so quickly we hardly noticed how many things around us had changed.

Now as we begin a new year we look back on all of the growth and success we achieved.

As we reflect on the last year we also find You.

You are always with us, calling us to have courage and faith. Sometimes we stepped boldly ahead and listened to Your call and bought love and truth to the world.

Sometimes we heard your call and stepped out onto the water in faith. Your love for us is infinite and you know we are finding our way.

Help us find ourselves on our journey this year and guide us to be more like you.
We give you thanks for your love and wish to find you more every day in all we encounter.

We pray that we will hear Your voice when you call and that we are guided to become people for others.

As we begin this new year and celebrate all that has been achieved we look ahead without fear.

We do not know your plan Lord, but know that you can calm the storm.

Because of you, we can do what may seem impossible – we can walk on water.
With your Spirit we can light up the world and through our actions spread the Gospel to all people.

Help us, guide us and teach us each day.

We make this prayer in the name of Christ our Lord: AMEN



The College Captains and Portfolio Captains were presented with their badges. College Captains, Kelsey Notting and Greg Lewis, delivered their addresses and revealed the 2017 College theme - ‘Believe we can Be More’.

Guest speakers included Rev Fr Kevin Dillon, President of the Canonical Administrators, Ms Lily Matthews, inaugural College Academic Captain (2014) and Ms Jessica Vella (Dux 2016).

Our 2016 VCE and VCAL highest achievers along with our top ten performing students in each level were presented with medals and certificates. I congratulate and thank Mrs Annette Chidzey (Deputy Principal) for coordinating this very successful assembly.

The last ten years of the College has seen incredible growth and development. A key feature of our college’s development has been the adoption and integration of the Ignatian charism to focus and foster our Christian ethos and identity and improve our student outcomes.

In late 2006 we signed the memorandum of understanding with the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus (or Jesuits), and as a result we commenced our journey as Saint Ignatius College Geelong, A Jesuit Partner School in 2007.

I am so pleased that Jesuit Fr Gerry Healy SJ was able to attend Monday’s assembly. Fr Healy was the Jesuit Provincial’s Delegate for Education ten years ago and since then has been a keen supporter of our College.

I also acknowledge past President, Fr Des Panton and current President, Rev Fr Kevin Dillon, Board Chairperson, Mr Tony Frizza, former Jesuit Delegate for Education Fr Chris Gleeson, current Delegate Ms Jennie Hickey and Xavier College for their support and involvement in the development of our College as an Ignatian school.

Mr Michael Exton
Principal
