​​St Ignatius Vision for learning is to 'LIFT UP YOUR HEARTS' by Loving Jesus, Loving Learning and Loving Each other. We value and believe:

By our Love of Jesus:

  • That we nurture and live the Gospel values in the light of the Jesuit Tradition

By our Love of Learning:

  • That we foster a love of learning that is life long and future oriented
  • That we promote responsible and accountable practices
  • That we provide learning that is holistic, well supported yet challenging
  • That we suport a learning environment that celebrates creativity, develops independence and personal responsibility

By our Love of Each Other:

  • That we work collaboratively with each other and the school community to form positive partnerships
  • That we celebrate and respect difference and self-worth
  • That we provide and sustain a safe learning environment that promotes a healthy and active life


St Ignatius Toowong, as one of the 150 schools of the Brisbane Archdiocese, is bound to improving educational outcomes for all our students. All staff are committed to supporting all students so that they will live fulfilling, productive and responsible lives through loving Jesus, loving learning and loving one another. This philosophy aligns with the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals, which is the underlying philosophy of the Australian Curriculum. These goals for Australian schools are to promote equity and excellence for all young Australians to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens. .

All decisions and frameworks about teaching and learning at St Ignatius School Toowong are based on the key messages and Learning Framework of Brisbane Catholic Education. St Ignatius Toowong have implemented the Australian Curriculum since 2011. Through planning, teaching, learning and reflection, the staff have effectively implemented the curriculum areas of Mathematics, English, Science, History and Geography. Education is still in a period of transition from Queensland syllabuses to a National Curriculum in other subject areas and therefore teachers are supported through planning and professional learning to ensure the teaching and learning at St Ignatius is aligned with current knowledge about children’s learning, sound teaching practice and current, up to date curriculum.
