In 2021, St George’s College will be celebrating 125 years and alongside this the Old Georgians Association will be celebrating its Centenary (100 years).
St George's College brings together a rare and exhilarating blend of academic excellence, social engagement, sporting prowess and cultural enrichment.
St George's College offers a comprehensive curriculum to cater for all our pupils’ aspirations.
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.
We offer a comprehensive cultural programme which provides pupils the opportunity to develop skills needed in a changing world, and to learn the value of doing everything for the Greater Glory of God.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
Boxing was one of the earliest sports at the College, possibly because it was viewed as ‘manly’ and came about during a particularly militaristic age in the country’s development.
Boxing in the early years was part of the inter-schools’ cadets’ competitions and boxers were generally coached by military personnel on attachment. As you probably know, cadets in this country started at St George’s Public School in 1898 and the College was always an enthusiastic participant in cadet and related sports’ encounters.
It was because of this that boxing continued well into the 1950s but the numerous injuries inflicted on unsuspecting pugilists may have been a contributory factor in the sport eventually being phased out altogether.
Today, all that remains of the School’s boxing is a slab of concrete (taken from approximately the same angle as the previous photo), and distant memories. Loyola Hall (formerly the Study Place) is whose windows you can see on the left hand side.
