Good Shepherd Catholic School was established as the teaching arm of the Catholic Church in the Lockridge Parish.
The Good Shepherd Evangelisation Plan is borne out of the desire to make the faith experience a real and meaningful part of the daily lives of the school community.
All of the school’s endeavours are aimed at achieving the Vision Statement. The Vision Statement focuses the school’s efforts to enhance all gifts within the school community in order to bring all members closer to God and His Church.
The Evangelization Plan was established to formalise the ongoing work of the school in helping the community to rediscover the art of proclaiming the gospels in their daily lives.
Our relationship with God is the central point from which all activities flow.
Like revelation and Christian faith, Evangelization involves progressive stages.
