Awards & Colours
Throughout its history Loyola College has developed a wonderful tradition of acknowledging the excellence, endeavour, commitment and leadership of our students through an extensive program of Awards and Colours. Student achievement is acknowledged throughout the year at various assemblies and events including the Annual Awards Evening, which is the premier event for the presentation of many of these Awards and Colours.
All aspects of College life are recognised through the presentation of Awards and Colours including excellence and endeavour in Christian Service, Academic Studies, Drama, House, Music, Public Speaking and Debating, and Sport.
A number of Scholarships and Prizes are also formally presented at the Annual Awards Evening. Loyola College offers 15 scholarships to Years 7 to 11 students to recognise and celebrate achievement.

In 2009 Loyola College instituted a program of student scholarships to recognise and celebrate the achievement of our students. A total of 15 scholarships are offered by the College to current Years 7 to 11 students to the value of $400 each in the following categories:
- Personal Endeavour
- Community Spirit – The Michael Cusack Memorial Scholarship for Community Service.
The Scholarships encourage students to develop:
- Skills of creativity
- A sense of community
- Skills in leadership
- A spirit of enquiry
- Critical awareness, and
- A desire for academic excellence
These Scholarships are generously supported by the Loyola Parents & Association (LPFA), the Loyola Ex-students Association (LEXSA) and the College. Year 7 to 11 students interested in applying for a scholarship are invited to complete the Scholarship Application Form and submit it to College Reception by the due date as announced in the Ignatian in August. The Scholarship Selection Committee will then shortlist and interview applicants with scholarships recipients being presented at the Annual Awards Evening traditionally held on the first Friday in December.
