What is the context of Jesuit schools in Asia Pacific? How are they addressing the challenges in their local context?  How can, for example, Xavier Jesuit School in Cambodia learn from the experience of Colégio de Santo Inácio de Loiola in Timor-Leste, and vice versa? These questions and more accounted for a large part of the discussion between the education delegates of the Jesuit Conference of Asia Pacific (JCAP) during their recent meeting in Singapore.
