So what is “Ignatian Pedagogy” and how could we say that Loyola Jesuit Secondary School (LJSS) takes that educational approach seriously?
To answer that important question would take up several pages for clear explanations, concrete examples and helpful comparisons. There is no time and space in this blog for that, so for the moment let’s just suggest some of the elements through some recent photos.
These photos offered here were taken during April 2018 on our beautiful LJSS campus in Kasungu. The buildings recently constructed for Administration and classroom blocks are all well marked with a special word or a meaningful phrase. These words and phrases highlight the elements of the education influenced by Ignatian pedagogy. They tell what the consequences should be in the lives of our learners.
The hope is that as teachers and learners move around the campus, the words on the walls will ring some bells, open some hearts and move some hands – to make a difference!
