TEACHING YOUNG MEN In 2019, Ignatius Park College celebrates 50 years of educating boys. On Monday, 25 August, 1969, Ignatius Park College officially opened its doors. Over the past 50 years, the College has grown in its own unique culture of brotherhood and community. As the only all-boys school in Townsville, the College understands the rewarding challenges that come with teaching boys and the school caters for their individual journeys as they grow into young men. Principal, Mr Shaun Clarke, explains, “Iggy is proudly dedicated to boys: their spiritual, academic, social and physical growth as they approach maturity. “Our routines and curriculum

are carefully structured to allow maximum personal growth within an environment tailored specifically to cater for boys’ academic, physical and emotional development.” As part of the Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) network of schools, the College builds on the proud traditions of the Christian Brothers, the school educates young men as future leaders of the community, with a strong focus on faith education and Christian living. “Iggy is all about supporting the development of boys to young men,” Year 11 student, James Rowan said. “I used to think that the best came to

Iggy Park, but once I got here I realised that Iggy doesn’t receive the best, they make the best.” Ignatius Park College is a leader in education not because of the buildings, results or achievements, but because of the people within the College – people who live the dream, vision and story of Edmund Rice; people who challenge

the students to reach their full potential, so that they go from Iggy Boys to Iggy Men with morals, manners and respect for all. Together with their families, Ignatius Park College raises men of integrity. www.ipc.qld.edu.au
