Community
Your child's growth and development is seen as a shared responsibility.

You are here

Good Shepherd recognises the mutual benefit that is developed through interaction between the school and the wider community. There are a number of ways relationships are fosterered with families, organisations and communities connected with the school. You will be informed of such opportunities within your respective sub-school and via our numerous communication methods.

Research studies show that those parents who:

  • are genuinely interested in the College
  • keenly support the College
  • encourage teachers
  • speak well of the College
  • have students who are more likely to be happy at school and achieve their personal best. 

How to get involved

Use every opportunity to attend:

  • class events
  • open days
  • sporting carnivals
  • assemblies
  • special events
  • College Chapel services
  • special worship services
  • fundraising events
  • information evenings
  • Friends of Good Shepherd (FoGS) meetings

Good Shepherd primarily uses emails and SEQTA (online reporting system) to keep families well informed. The website is extremely handy too as is the College Facebook page and College App.

The College publishes various newsletters which can be accessed on this site. The Pathways newsletter is published in Terms 2, 3 and 4. It is a large newsletter, providing in-depth 'cross-campus' information - a culmination of the many wonderful events that have taken place at Good Shepherd for that particular term.
