For Students

Policy Statement

At Good Shepherd School our Pastoral Care Policy is underpinned by the Vision Statement for Catholic Schools and the school's Mission Statement.

Vision Statement

Because we believe that authentic Catholic schools are founded on the person of Jesus Christ and enlivened by the Gospel, we are committed to the development of Catholic schools, which:

  • embrace the example of Jesus and the teaching of the Gospel, especially in relation to faith, hope, love, forgiveness, justice and freedom
  • reflect the love of God within their communities.

Because we believe that authentic Catholic schools highlight the relevance of our faith to life and contemporary culture, we are committed to the development of Catholic schools which:

  • promote the dignity of the human person and the value of human life
  • encourage students to contribute to the sacredness of the human story by promoting justice, peace, harmony with creation, and service to the community.

Because we believe that authentic Catholic schools are committed to the development of the whole person, we are committed to the development of Catholic schools which:

  • provide loving, caring and secure environments
  • recognise the individuality and dignity of each student
  • foster life-giving relationships within the school community.
