Good Shepherd Welcome

David Austin

A joyful, vibrant and purposeful Catholic Primary School in the Northern suburbs of Canberra.

I warmly welcome you to Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School Amaroo, where we, in partnership with the Holy Spirit Parish, strive to make Jesus’ vision and mission central in our lives. Good Shepherd is a Kindergarten to Year 6 Catholic primary school providing the best possible foundation for all children’s future education and their adult lives. We promote the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all children. We teach the importance of good manners and the need for kindness at all times. We teach an academic curriculum combined with many opportunities for children to participate in Music, Sport, STEM and the language of Italian.

As Principal, I feel privileged to be part of the Good Shepherd story. We have a strong sense of community and with a dedicated staff, a supportive parent body and an active and visionary Community Council, the school is part of a vibrant and supportive parish led by Fr Mark Croker. This is a community that encourages all students to value and respect themselves and others in their journey of faith, learning and life. We warmly welcome enquiries from all prospective families seeking a Catholic education and hope to share with you the difference that a Catholic education at Good Shepherd can make to your daughter or son.


God bless,

David Austin
