The Vision

The Ignis Project is the culmination of an ambitious and innovative vision to renew the Riverview landscape by building on the strengths of the past, while breaking new ground for the future.

In its current form, the campus represents the rich history of the College and its formidable growth from a 12-student boarding school in 1880 to a vibrant, 1,600-strong College that oversees the education and pastoral care of students from grades 5 to 12. As Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview prepares for the future, the Ignis Project is a vital part of creating contemporary teaching and learning facilities that encourage integrated learning, collaboration and inter-disciplinary initiatives; a warm place for our boarders, for whom the boarding houses are a second home; and a welcoming environment for all staff, students and the community.

The Ignis Project is a leap forward in the evolution of the College, empowering teachers to provide student-centred learning and teaching in a state-of-the-art collaborative environment.

Some key considerations:

  • Forward-facing academic spaces
  • Facilities for students and staff such as accommodation, cafeteria, sporting student services
  • Open space and public amenities
  • Our relationships with the surrounding neighbourhood and community
  • Environmentally sustainable growth
  • Vehicle movements, including car access and parking
  • Pedestrian pathways, access, signage and security
  • Public transport facilities
