23,2014, a group of Australian college students visited The Honorable John
Ehsa, Governor of Pohnpei State. These students were from the College of
Saint Ignatius' College.
Saint Ignatius' College, Riverview is a Catholic school for day boys and
boarders from Years 5-12. It was established by the Jesuits at Lane Cove in
Sydney in 1880 and is part of the international network of Jesuit schools begun
in Messina, Sicily in 1548.
At Riverview, our aim is to educate students so that they may become young men
of competence, conscience and compassion, striving always for excellence in all
Our motto, Quantum Potes Tantum Aude, “As much as you can do, so much dare to
do”, reflects this central theme of Jesuit education.
Jesuit education insists on individual care and concern for each student. At
Riverview, we have developed an academic program and pastoral care system, which
enable a boy to reach his full potential as a person of faith, created and loved
“Our ideal is the well rounded person who is intellectually competent, open to
growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice in generous service to
the people God,” Fr Peter-Hans Kolvenbach SJ, Superior-General of the Society of
Jesus, The Characteristics of Jesuit Education, 1986
Rector of the College is Fr Andrew Bullen SJ. Fr Bullen joined the College
Community in July, 2003. However, he has had an association with Riverview for
many years. From 1986-1991, he was Senior Housemaster, an English and Religious
Education teacher and Rector of the Jesuit Community at Saint Ignatius' College.
A writer and poet, Fr Bullen has a keen interest in the visual arts. He was
Rector of the Jesuit Theological College in Melbourne for nine years before
coming to Riverview.
Headmaster of the College is Mr. Shane Hogan BA MEd. Mr. Hogan was appointed
Headmaster in November, 2000, having joined the College community as Deputy
Headmaster in 1993. Prior to this, he taught Economics and Geography at St.
Aloysius College, Milsons Point, in Sydney where he was also Deputy Headmaster.
Mr. Hogan has a strong commitment to boys' education and is especially
interested in the key role fathers play in the education of their sons.
