Welcome from College Captain
Euan Cram - School Captain
Welcome to our 2021 academic year. Firstly, I’d like to say what a privilege it is to be elected College Captain at Ignatius Park College. I am humbled and honoured that I have been selected to lead the College in 2021.
How would you describe Iggy Park? Would you talk about buildings both old a new? Or the great ovals we have, or the many extracurricular activities Iggy offers? Personally, I would talk about the culture made over 51 years that shows the greatest parts of 'The Park'. It’s the people who walk through the Park from Monday to Friday. Because what we have at Iggy is special and cannot be described. As a graduate class of 2021, it is our time to lead and show Iggy what we have to offer. Our College Theme for 2021 is Stay True, Bleed Blue. This theme calls all members of our College, including our Seniors, to build upon the legacy of this great school, it is now a time to give back to Ignatius Park College and stay true to our ourselves and 'The Park'. In our logo, we have reimagined the phoenix, a symbol that is important to us all. The traditional phoenix head leads the way with our important traditions and rituals. Its wings are represented by the House Colours, which are used in unison to lift us to places higher than we can imagine. Coming from the wings is the blood we are willing to spill for 'The Park'. Not literal blood, but the pride we have in this place and for what we are willing to give back.
This theme in 2021 is going to represent our year, we are all different…ATAR, VET, sports and academics, but that doesn’t matter now, we all bleed blue, we all stay true, we all stand together.
This year we are going to unite Iggy no matter what the house, background, or year level we all proud men of Iggy are and let’s show the younger grades the integrity, pride and commitment they should show for Iggy. Remember, Iggy is not a place, it’s a culture. It is not a place of buildings, it’s about the people inside of them. So, let’s promote the College Theme to younger grades and let them know what this place is all about. Let’s promote it by our actions each and every day. So put aside your differences, as it is time we unite as a one and make 2021 our year and leave a legacy for future students to follow. So, “Stay True, Bleed Blue” and let everyone know what The Park is about.
