    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

    Saint Ignatius College has been monitoring advice from the Victorian Health Department, DFAT Smart Traveller and the World Health Organisation with regards to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). While we understand that there is a lot of information available, we will endeavour to keep you informed regarding the College’s approach.

    This article will be updated regularly to ensure parents/guardians are kept informed of any new advice or changes as matters arise.

    Mr Michael Exton  Principal



    We regret that we have taken the decision to cancel our Open Day in light of community concerns about the Coronavirus. While there are currently no infections at the College, we believe it is both responsible and prudent to cancel the event, given our expectation that approximately 1500 visitors are likely to attend the school on this day and potentially come into close contact with staff and students conducting a myriad of varied activities.

    We have taken this decision after very careful consideration, and we are indeed sorry for any inconvenience such a cancellation may cause. Open Day is normally a wonderful community day when we warmly welcome prospective families to view our fantastic facilities, as well as meet our very impressive students and dedicated staff members.

    While the advice at the moment is to continue with such events, we believe the more responsible and appropriate action is to reconsider how we might better provide the opportunity for people to view our College given the current uncertainty. We expect to provide a series of pre-booked small group tours and will indicate how interested people can access such tours in the very near future. Please continue to check our website for specific information related to these tours.

    It is important to note that applications for Year 7 2021 close on May 8, 2020.
    People seeking further enrolment information are advised to contact the College Registrar, Mrs Gail Myers (Ph. 03 5251 1136) or visit our website,
