iognaid_iig_01b.jpgThis month’s Ignatian Identity Group (IIG) meeting in Coláiste Iognáid tackled one of the Characteristics of Jesuit Education, In Pursuit of Excellence. Chaired by Conall Ó Cuinn SJ, it featured presentations on the topic by a parent, Catriona Clear, a teacher, Steve Parkinson, and by two students, Eveanne Allen and Darragh O’Brien. Much of the discussion attempted to capture the unique spirit of the school, and the balancing of academic standards with a rounded education.
