About our school

Our students, staff and parents are partners focused on holistic education within a welcoming and caring environment. Fostering faith and spirituality is our primary goal. We believe in the uniqueness and dignity of each individual.

We endeavour to encourage each member of our community to be inner-directed, responsible, compassionate and just. Students, staff and parents learn best in situations of loving relationships and mutual respect.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Good Shepherd Catholic College! This is a vibrant and faith-filled learning community, with a focus on academic excellence and pastoral care. At Good Shepherd, we encourage our students to experience the community, live the values and achieve success. Our students know that whatever they aspire to do post-school, we will help them plan for their future and give them the foundations to reach their potential. Many of our graduates go onto University to study in areas such as Engineering, Medicine, Education and Business. Vocational Education and Training is a popular pathway also at Good Shepherd, with students going on to do apprenticeships and further qualifications in Hospitality, Business Administration and Hairdressing.

Our Pastoral Care program aims to support our students during their learning journey with well-being programs, social and emotional skills and individualised care and attention from their Homeroom Teachers and Pastoral Leaders. We also have a full-time counsellor and are well supported by Student Support Services from the Townsville Catholic Education Office.

The Vision of our College is “To journey together in faith with ‘Christ our Light’, educating and empowering young people”. Through our Religious Education and Pastoral Care programs, we aim to foster the faith and spirituality of our students, celebrating the Gospel values of truth, justice, hope and love.

We look forward to welcoming you to Good Shepherd Catholic College.
