Union of hearts and minds

Developing theWhole Person

As Jesuit education is concerned with the development of the

whole person, co-curricular activities (sport, music, drama,

cadets) are seen as an integral part of the formation of students.

All members of the teaching staff are involved in co-curricular

activities and participation in cultural, sporting, spiritual and service

programs is expected of all students.

St Aloysius’ College has developed sporting programs that

accommodate each student’s interests and talents and that teach

him to accept both success and failure graciously. Within this

program an awareness of the need to co-operate with others, using

the qualities of each individual to contribute to the well-being of

the whole group, becomes more evident.

Students are encouraged to make an effort in their chosen activities

and receive coaching assistance to develop their proficiency and to

come closer to realising their potential. The importance of physical

well-being is promoted in the sporting program, with the aim

that health and fitness become a fundamental part of each boy’s

lifestyle.

The College Cadet Unit was first formed in 1913. Today it has over

250 students fromYear 7 to Year 12. It is the largest voluntary

Army cadet unit in Australia. The challenges, resilience building

and comradeship offered by the Unit help form the students in

the Jesuit ideal of being ‘men for others’ and are designed to build

resilience in young men.
