A Family School
We believe parents are the primary educators of their children and the College includes them, where possible, in the all-round development of their sons. The active participation of parents in the life of the College and the progress of their sons is welcomed, encouraged, even expected. Parents’ specialised knowledge of their children makes them uniquely able to contribute to the partnership between the student, family and College staff in the interests of maximising each student’s schooling outcome.
As a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, the College provides a religious education to its students. The individual belief of each student and the right of families to their own values, attitudes and beliefs is respected. Congruence between the home and the College is crucial for the proper formation of students of St Aloysius’ College.
Parent Enrichment Programme
This programme provides opportunities for reflection and growth and keeps parents informed. The programme deals with issues concerning students, their surroundings and their entire family. It includes opportunities for parents to deepen their understanding of Ignatian spirituality and pedagogy which shape the particular style of this school.
The Parents’ and Friends’ Association
The Parents’ and Friends’ Association contributes greatly to the sense of community and friendliness at the College by organising functions aimed at bringing the Aloysian family closer together. Educational issues are discussed at regular Forum meetings.
St Aloysius’ College Old Boys’ Union
The St Aloysius’ College Old Boys’ Union assists Old Boys to maintain contact with each other and with the College. Members of the Union support the College through various activities and fund special projects including Bursaries.
Old Boys of the College are encouraged to continue their involvement after graduation. Many assist with College activities on a regular basis.
