Principal’s Welcome:


Welcome to School of the Good Shepherd. We are a Faith and Learning Community, where staff, students and families work together in educational partnership, nurturing all learners to be their best. Our motto ‘Known by Your Name’ reflects the Gospel centered values of belonging and welcoming that resound at our school.  Who our students are as people and the contributions they make to society now and into the future are important considerations for us as educators. We aspire to provide our students with strong faith models, a highly supportive community and a contemporary curriculum that develops them spiritually, morally and ethically as well as intellectually, emotionally and physically. more...



Our School: 


School of the Good Shepherd is a Catholic Parish Primary School located in Gladstone Park, a north-western suburb of Melbourne. With its beginnings in the early 60's, our school community has evolved over the years from a predominantly English speaking background to that of a multicultural one. We value, embrace and celebrate our religious and cultural traditions, fostering an environment of inclusivity and 'oneness' where we are all 'Known by our name.' Our current enrolment is 330 students and we expect this number to grow in the near future. Our school is organised into 14 classrooms, all straight grades, with 37 staff members delivering an engaging curriculum dedicated to the support of all students. more...
