This document is our vision for our community; a community of innovative and powerful learners. The following pages express our commitment to the growth of our students, staff and parent community, as we strive to be lifelong learners with a passion to support each other in our endeavours.
The plan is the culmination of a year of discussion with parents, students and staff at the College, which included an Appreciative Inquiry summit with all stakeholders represented. It builds upon the previous strategic plan of the College, and extends into new and innovative educational directions. The focus is on being a positive organisation informed by the field of Positive Psychology and Positive Education. These align with the message of the Gospel that guides the College.
The plan is supported by measurable outcomes and indicators of success, and it is intended that it will be a living document, guiding both the strategic and operational decision making at the College. This will ensure that the College continues to provide the best for all within the Good Shepherd community. I would like to thank all who have shaped this plan, for their ideas and boldness in creating a collective vision for the College.
