Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Ignatius Park College.

We are proudly dedicated to boys and their spiritual, academic, social and physical growth. As Townsville’s only boy’s school, we are uniquely placed to cater for their specific needs.

The College’s challenging academic programs revolve around a recognition that boys think and learn differently from girls. Our routines and curriculum are therefore carefully structured to allow maximum personal growth within an environment tailored specifically to cater for boys’ academic, physical and emotional development.

We provide a balanced and holistic education within the Edmund Rice network, building on the Christian Brothers’ proud tradition of educating young men as leaders of the community, with a strong focus on faith education and Christian living.

We pride ourselves in promoting structure, processes and relationships which build connections through the integration of academic and co-curricular programs that recognise the learning demands of boys.

Our Pastoral system nurtures and challenges our boys to become confident, happy and responsible young men with a highly developed sense of social justice. We have a clearly articulated policy to deter bullying and harassment, striving to create an environment where each student can feel confident to achieve his potential.

Our prime focus is to promote the safety and wellbeing of students under our care. At Ignatius Park College we take our responsibilities for child safeguarding extremely seriously and therefore we commit to ensuring that all our schools have appropriate policies and practices to make them places that are both safe and inclusive. Central to this, is student voice and agency. Our child safeguarding programs are regularly updated and checked for compliance with regulatory requirements.

We believe that Ignatius Park College students – the boys of today – have a vital role to play as outstanding young men of the future, with highly developed skills in leadership, critical thinking, creativity and emotional intelligence. Ignatius Park College offers a Liberating Education, based on Gospel Spirituality, within an Inclusive Community, committed to Justice and Solidarity.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
