The Jesuits have always assisted families in our schools. Since the founding of the College in 1880 students in need have been supported. But the formalising of needs based bursaries in our school began about twenty years ago, and continues to play a vital role in ensuring that the College remains true to the Jesuit mission of an education for all.
Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview does not offer academic or co-curricular scholarships. The distinction between a bursary and a scholarship is both clear and important. Bursaries at Riverview are financially needs based, and are not awarded on academic, musical or sporting prowess.
Many of our alumni and friends support students in necessitous circumstances by making a gift towards bursaries. These gifts provide crucial financial assistance to deserving students, to be educated as a ‘whole person’ to become men of ‘competence, conscience, compassion and commitment’ to fulfill their true potential.
Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview strives to create a diverse and inclusive community in which young boys can thrive. We produce leaders who can meaningfully serve our communities at every level. Your gift unlocks the door to the transformative power of a unique experience, through curriculum, exhortations, outreach and immersions.
Generous contributions to the Riverview Bursary Program can ensure motivated students develop the skills to succeed, regardless of their background. Your gift can truly enhance the development of men for others, with a strong sense of justice and equality.
Together we can make a significant difference.
