Father’s Day Celebration

We had a super special time during our P&F Father's Day afternoon, and it made us really happy to see lots of dads and father figures there with us. Even though we got a little bit of rain, we all had so much fun! A big thank you to the P&F for planning the yummy sausage sizzle and all the fun things our dad’s and kids got to do.

Athletics Carnival

A reminder that next Friday we have our Athletics carnival. Parents are welcome to attend. Please ensure that you are following all parking rules inside and outside of school grounds especially along Sugargum Rise.

National Child Protection Week

National Child Protection Week runs from 3rd to 9th September and will continue to embrace the overarching message that ‘Every child, in every community, needs a fair go’. This message captures the essence of National Child Protection Week which aims to promote a safe and supported life for every child, now and into the future. This year, the theme is “Where we start matters”. You can read more about this year's theme,

Online Safety

At Good Shepherd we continue to hear about our students, even those in younger years, that are being exposed to inappropriate images online. Can I please urge all parents to ensure they are monitoring their child’s online activity. There is valuable advice available at to assist with ways of keeping children safe.


Please keep our Year Six students and children from the Parish in your prayers as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this weekend. We look forward to celebrating with them as they undertake this milestone in their spiritual development.


God Bless

Senior Leader Message

This week in week 8, the Year 6’s were busy with Confirmation practicing and Retreat. We have had so much fun spending time as Year 6’s before we go off to High School. On Wednesday, instead of Hymn Singing we all practiced our Faction Chants with our Faction Captains and Vice Captains guiding our faction teams who did an amazing job for their first time this term.

Father’s Day celebrations are over for 2023.  We would love to thank everyone for attending the event last Friday.  We served over 350 sausages to all our dads/grandads/special father figures and we hope everyone had a great time hanging out together.

We also celebrated with our annual Father’s Day stall.  We hope everyone loved their BBQ Rub and that there were some yummy dishes being made over the weekend!

Special thanks to all of our volunteers and the amazing year 5’s who helped assist throughout the day.


Don’t forget our rollerskating event for term 3 has been postponed until futher notice.  Keep an eye out for more information for Term 1 2024!


To help make the day a success we need an array of volunteers to assist on the day.  There are six session times available, with a minimum of 5 people required per shift.  Grab some friends together and sign up now!
