Social conscience

From their first years with us, students are instructed in a way that forms their sensitivity to issues that concern the heart, and helps them to grow into individuals who care for others and are sensitive to the difficulties that others may face.

Our College organises several engaging programmes to gently lead each student to discover and form their own social conscience to truly become ‘men and women for others’.

GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

To better educate young people in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, there is a necessity to develop their knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes to help them flourish and be engaged citizens who can help address the pressing global challenges of today: social inequality, political corruption, social division and ecological devastation.

We need that kind of education which:

  • empowers them to resolve global issues in their social, political, cultural, economic and environmental dimensions;
  • helps them understand our global interdependence;
  • gives them the experience of community;
  • provides them with opportunities to serve others; and strengthens their problem-solving and organizational skills.

Our pedagogy and programming are aimed to equip learners from an early age and throughout life with the competences needed to be informed, committed and empathetic citizens, to forge more just, peaceful, and tolerant societies.
It is educating our young people for the development of social consciousness and social responsibility to take actions and decisions that support the quality of life for all.

Global Citizenship: An Ignatian Definition

Global Citizens are those who continuously seek to deepen their awareness of their place and responsibility in an increasingly interconnected world, both locally and globally; those who stand in solidarity with others in the pursuit of a sustainable earth and a more humane world as true companions in the mission of reconciliation and justice.
