This Early Learning Centre to Year 12 College is a one-stop shop for dynamic education and an extremely well reputed Pastoral Care program. The latter is perhaps what makes it the No.1 choice for parents seeking a quality, Christian and engaging education for their children. The College has an Early Learning Centre (ELC) at both the St Andrew Campus in Leanyer, which caters for three and four-year-old children, and the Howard Springs Campus, which caters for four-year-old children. The College is an International Baccalaureate World School, offering both the Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes. They also offer NTCET programs for senior students. Good Shepherd is committed to providing excellence in education, embracing the wellbeing of all students while aim ing to develop active, knowledgeable and compassionate students, who understand they have a responsibility to the communities to which they belong. The College does this through providing effective educational pathways, opportunities for service to others and a strong, community recognised and valued Pastoral Care program. Good Shepherd works collaboratively with parents to ensure their children become confident learners with a passion for lifelong learning, with an acceptance of who they are and where their strengths lie. The College provides a caring, supportive community, emphasising the importance of positive relationship building and treating others with respect it is simply central to the way they act. The principle of Grace in Action is central to who they are as a Lutheran college. The College is at the cutting edge of Positive Education which is the application of the psychology of optimal functioning and wellbeing. Research has shown that programs founded on Positive Psychology can bring about measurable improvement in psychological, emotional and physical health, academic outcomes, wellbeing and life satisfaction. These programs can also buffer against anxiety and depression which is an increasing feature of our society.
