Learning through the Senior Years
Senior School at Good Shepherd encompasses the critical formative years in a young person’s life and so in partnership with parents, we establish genuine relationships to support students both personally and professionally as they make the transition from dependence to interdependence to independence
Through pastoral care programs students are encouraged to identify and reflect upon their core values, ensuring that these inform their decision making and are apparent in their actions. Personal integrity is the foundation from which students are encouraged to learn from and value the differences in those around them.
From this basis of understanding and developing responsibility for themselves, students work in partnership with College staff to make informed decisions, set goals, develop plans and pursue these with courage and discipline. Student pathways are individualised and may include academic and vocational elements, relevant to their further education and career aspirations.
Through all aspects of the College culture, students grow to understand the Christian perspective of service and this informs all relationships and interactions with a strong emphasis on self discipline and leading by example. The ongoing pride and involvement of past students in the College is testament to the secure and nurturing environment of the College that students experience in their time at Good Shepherd.
