From the CEO-Principal
Our students and faculty can look back over 2018 and feel proud of all they have accomplished. This year the College experienced significant growth in enrolments with our new students bringing to JCS a diverse range of skills, interests and experience.
I congratulate our students graduating this year, I thank them for their contribution to JCS, and I wish them well in their future ministries as they realise their dreams and transform the community through their servant leadership.
This year, the JCS community has delivered on its vision of Education and Research in Ignatian Spirituality – Empowering Leadership and we have much to be proud of. It fills me with tremendous pride to witness our faculty, leadership team, students and graduates integrate the key themes of Ignatian spirituality into their lives and impart that gift to others.
We have implemented many changes at the College, in curriculum and organisationally to raise our standards and to ensure we are delivering quality awards. We have implemented our new structure, been enriched by new members of faculty and we look to 2019 with excitement. Our focus in the year ahead will be on our education strategies to develop a research active community and I invite all of our graduating students to consider possible areas of interest they would like to investigate in a research project.
I wish everyone a joyful Christmas and I hope this time may be one of rest, reflection and renewal. May the blessing of the Christ child be with you and your families.
