St George's College brings together a rare and exhilarating blend of academic excellence, social engagement, sporting prowess and cultural enrichment.
At St George's College we believe that developing the optimism and resilience students need to successfully navigate life is as important as academic education, and will enhance their engagement with
Our Jesuit Ethos flows from the twofold commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ which stresses the love of God and love of one’s neighbour. This ethos is central to the development of St George’s C
Everything done at St George’s celebrates the continuing action of God’s Holy Spirit in ourselves, in others and in the world around us. In celebrating life we are worshipping God. “The glory of God is humankind fully alive,” so said St. Irenaeus. Our main act of worship, therefore, is the enjoyment given to us by the people we meet and the activities in which we engage.
College Chapel Services are designed to underline this fundamental truth. At them, we also celebrate the forgiveness and mercy of God in recognising our failures to Him and one another. But for the Catholics among us, worship culminates in the Eucharist, which is the celebration of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and the love that we have for one another.
The Chaplaincy is responsible for the religious activities at the College, Service Projects, Interact, Days of Recollection, Retreats, Christian Life Community (CLC), and Crusaders of the Blessed Sacrament. It also works in conjunction with the personal counseling facility as explained below. Some of these activities are optional and some are not. In particular, some Chapel Services and Days of Recollection are for all students. All students wanting to enter Lower Six participate in Service Projects.
In addition, the Chaplaincy operates outside the normal disciplinary structure of the school and students should feel free to use its counseling services, safe in the knowledge that their confidentiality will be respected. Any member of staff who is willing to be a Chaplain may be part of the Chaplaincy Counselling Team.
At present, the Chaplaincy uses the R.E. room which is open to students and the guidance room.
