Principal’s Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family. I trust that the information you discover by navigating our website will provide you with an insight into the college and enable you to determine ways that we, as a school can contribute to the educational, social, emotional, and developmental growth of your child.

Unique to the Hamilton region, our college has been established on two distinct campuses. This enables the college to tailor each learning environment to the developmental stages of students. We believe this reflects ‘best practice’ and provides teaching and learning situations specifically suited to the students in each location, focusing on the way these students’ best learn.

We believe every student is a special gift from God each with unique gifts, skills and talents, which when nurtured enable them to become active citizens beyond school. Every child is treated with Christian love and respect and encouraged to have control over their learning. Each is challenged to discover, develop and use their gifts and abilities for personal growth and service to others. We hope that the enriching and fulfilling opportunities experienced in our community stay with students for life.

Good Shepherd College is widely regarded as a caring school. We place a high priority on pastoral care. Our staff work hard at developing nurturing relationships with students because encouraging and affirming relationships lie at the heart of effective learning.

I firmly believe Good Shepherd College is a school community where our children can grow and develop, knowing we are grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and surrounded by His love.

I look forward to welcoming you to Good Shepherd.
