Global Partnerships & Charity
A central part of Jesuit education is to form men and women to be generous in the service of others. Following the example of Jesus Christ, a special concern for those who are marginalised in society is inculcated in our students. This concern for others is expressed on different levels, most immediately through the school’s charitable activities.
The College is committed to its links with St Ignatius Prep & Primary School, Dodoma, Tanzania. This link allows staff and students to go out to Tanzania to work with the students and community in Dodoma. The College’s work has been recognised and commended by the Tanzanian government and the Prime Minister has thanked the College for its work. It is a life changing experience for all involved and goes to the heart of our mission to serve others. This ‘Global Schools Partnership’ is being supported by the British Council and the Department for International Development.
