Principal's Welcome

​​​On behalf of the St Ignatius Toowong community I warmly welcome you to our school.  St Ignatius is an exceptional learning community in which all students are nurtured to achieve and exceed their potential within a caring Catholic environment.

Our school has an outstanding reputation for establishing high expectations and achieving excellent academic results.  We provide quality education through an excellence in learning and teaching along with a strong focus on wellbeing.  Our staff are passionate about developing the academic, social, physical and spiritual whole of the young people in our care.

​In my role, I work with staff and parents to engage each child in their own learning, creating an environment in which teaching and learning is purposeful, relevant, innovative and collaborative.  At St Ignatius we will always hold the highest expectation for children in attaining their academic best and developing the whole child.

We enjoy wonderful facilities, including air-conditioned contemporary classrooms, the Manresa Enrichment centre and Library, Mercy Hall along with the magnificent Susan Palmer Field that has possibly the best playground view of the city in Brisbane. 

Our students are the life-blood of our school as they 'Lift up their hearts' with their peers and community members.

Please enjoy exploring our website. You will find much information about our wonderful school here. However, I invite you to come and take a personal tour of St Ignatius Catholic Primary School Toowong to experience what our community has to offer.
