Enrolment Enquiry

We would love to meet you and show you what our school has to offer. For the 2021 enrolment period we will be holding one-on-one Meet The Principal sessions. If you would like a copy of our Student Handbook, or to book one of these sessions, please pop your details in below.


Austin, David

Good Shepherd Primary School primarily serves children living in Amaroo, Bonner, Forde, Jacka, Moncrieff and Taylor.  While the school population is predominantly Catholic the school does accept enquiries from families of other faith backgrounds that support our ethos.

As Principal, I feel privileged to be part of the Good Shepherd story. We have a strong sense of community at Good Shepherd. With a dedicated staff, a supportive parent body and an active and visionary Community Council.

We warmly welcome enquiries from all prospective families seeking a Catholic education and will happily arrange virtual tours on request. We hope to share with you the difference that a Catholic education at Good Shepherd can make to your daughter or son.

Kind regards,

David Austin

“The leadership is strong. The principal is open and honest and communicates very effectively. “ Good Shepherd Parent

“My children get a lot of learning support. The school has gone out of their way to accommodate their needs. They have learning plans and make sure they are always catered for. It’s very reassuring.” Good Shepherd Parent

“The teachers put in a big effort so everyone feels very well supported.” Good Shepherd Parent

“When my family was facing adversity, the school community supported us and the children in a way that I will never forget. The children got love and support at school, I had phone calls and follow-up care. The school has a freezer with beautiful meals prepared by other members of the community and I got freezer meals. I cried. The love and care was absolutely overwhelming.” Good Shepherd Parent
