The school commemorates the Jesuit Fathers who came from Austria to South Australia in 1848 and built St Ignatius Church in 1870,

At the request of Bishop Shiel, who was Bishop of Adelaide at the time, they took charge of the Norwood Mission, covering much of today’s eastern suburbs in 1869. Each classroom in the new school, except the kindergarten, would have a portrait of one of these founding Jesuits. The school would also commemorate the 400th year of the Society of Jesus and the Sisters of St Joseph who have been associated with the parish,
