It’s been almost half a year since the first Printable Map of Jesuit Schools was published on Educate Magis. Since then we’ve published an updated version on 31st March 2016 and received great feedback from the community. We are grateful to those who already sent us updates regarding their schools. Please keep sending us your feedback to [email protected] so that we can update and improve both the Printable and Online Map and directory of Jesuit Schools. The Map helps us to improve our knowledge of one another. In his recent blog on International School Exchanges, Dan Carmody of Boston College High School describes this sense of being part of a global network: “There’s a visible sense of pride that they [the students] are part of a bigger picture; that they belong to something, belong somewhere; that is not restricted by boundaries and boarders.” In some way this Map represents this space and strengthens this sense of belonging and of shared mission.
We’ve received some great photos of the global map from schools in different regions around the world, including a giant print from the land of the baobab, Madagascar! Thank you to all who printed the Map and shared their pictures with the community. See below photos of the Maps printed. Let us grow this gallery and strengthen the bonds of this global Jesuit family!
