Senior Years Program
Establishing genuine relationships to support students both personally and professionally as they make the transition from dependence to interdependence to independence.

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.

Pathways

Year 11 students at Good Shepherd have the choice of selecting our Career Acceleration Pathway (trade-based) or the Pre-tertiary pathway (further study) of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET). Both pathways are tailored to individual student needs and aspirations. Both are challenging and rewarding, preparing students for their future career directions.

Year 12 students continue study in their chosen pathway, supported by caring, quality teaching and learning approaches.

Student Outcomes

At Good Shepherd we understand that student academic outcomes are central to educational pathways and we acknowledge the importance of traditional academic results. We strongly believe that student outcomes should not only be measured by a score or a grade. Integral to a student’s success is the development of their identity and understanding of their responsibility to others around them.

Through our co-curricular program we nurture and build capacity in various life skills including but not limited to; positive relationships, resilience and coping skills, self-regulation, communication and collaboration, critical thinking and social skills. These are key elements needed for success in employment, further study and a balanced and flourishing life.

One approach we use to develop these attributes is through targeted service learning programs that expose students to the idea of selfless service. In developing empathy for others at a local, national and global level, our students develop an attitude of embracing diversity and understanding that those with more have a responsibility to help those with less.

Through our curricular and co-curricular programs, we endeavor to ensure that our students gain a love of learning in every sense of the word. We refer to this as flourishing; where students feel good about themselves and others and are doing good for themselves and others.
