St Ignatius School prides itself on developing the whole child. To this extent whilst ensuring high quality teaching and learning of the core curriculum the school also aims to complement this with the enrichment curriculum.
All students engage in a rich social emotional curriculum developing the dispositions 'learning tools' that they need to succeed with a particular focus on resilience; persistence; courage; collaboration; reflection and curiosity. In Prep and Year 1 These year levels are offered a gross and fine motor development program each week - "Crocodile Club".
An engaging Instrumental Study takes place in Year Five offering tuition to all students to learn brass, woodwind or percussion. We have concert bands in both Year 5 and 6 who also compete in the Queensland Catholic Schools Music Festival . Our Middle Years Choir performs at a range of events and celebrations and also collaborate and compete with other schools.
Our Senior Years of 5 and 6 have a strong onus on leadership and providing opportunities for our students to demonstrate leadership in action. We promote and provide opportunities for all of our students to be leaders, there are also positions of Student Representatives and House Leaders that students nominate and take a particular leadership focus on in our school

Further focus on the importance of indigenous culture occurs through the schools Reconciliation Action Project (RAP) - an Australian wide project which supports future awareness of building positive relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous people. It provides the school with a framework for the future, detailing steps and priorities to achieve indigenous equality.
