What our families say…
“When we arrived at Good Shepherd Lutheran School, I felt like we had been invited into a big extended family hug! …and 5 years later (with 2 children attending the school) this feeling has never gone away. There is a close connection between parents, teachers, staff and children – and we all fit together like pieces of a big school puzzle. New families come, and the puzzle just gets bigger and more colourful – more pieces get added.
I love how the children play across the year levels – the older ones looking out for and including the younger, newer children. I think the overwhelming feeling at Good Shepherd is that of being included and cared for – both for the children in the playground and the families overall.”
– Kylie H, Angaston
We moved to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Angaston last year and it has blessed our family in many ways. We love the smaller school size because it creates a more cohesive learning environment: the teaching staff collaborate and integrate each other’s skills and resources seamlessly, the parent community are engaged and spirited, the children are all valued and accountable.
We love the learning environment because it is structured and reassuring so that every child understands their worth and also their contribution. Our children are safe to be themselves and empowered to excel appropriate to their ability. We love how technology is leveraged as a learning and communication resource. Our children learn literacy, numeracy and technology competency. We love the secluded location because it enhances safety and privacy for our children. We love that our life needs are met with OSHC and Vacation Care close by, giving continuity to the familiar environment. We thoroughly recommend Good Shepherd Lutheran School Angaston.

Everyone Is So Welcoming
“What I first noticed about Good Shepherd was its quaint, homely feel. Everyone seems to know everyone – and if they don’t – everyone is so welcoming of everyone else. One particular thing I love at Good Shepherd is how the classes are mixed, or composite. My daughter in year 2 has learned a lot from being in a composite 1/2 class both as a younger year 1 and now as an older year 2. She has been able to learn and be extended with the older children and is now working on her leadership skills as an older student in her class.”

Individualised and Encouraging Environment
Becoming a member of Good Shepherd’s community has exceeded all my expectations and completely eased all uncertainties I had prior to my child starting school. At Good Shepherd, they truly embrace the entire child; academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Not only has the school focused on improving my son’s areas of need, but has also emphasised in highlighting his individual strengths. My son has grown in a way that I could never imagine he would have at another school due the individualised and encouraging environment provided by the staff, whom are very nurturing, while also providing appropriate academic challenges and the tools and strategies needed to meet those challenges.
Good Shepherd also fosters amazing kindness in it’s students. The friendliness and care that the students show across all the year levels is so warming. I genuinely believe my son is blessed to be a part of such a supportive and caring environment. This is a true reflection of the broader school community; beyond my child’s education, the community at Good Shepherd have gone above and beyond to ensure my whole family has felt supported and loved, and given us a sense of belonging and stability. The generosity is invaluable and I will be forever grateful and appreciative for the opportunity we have been given to be involved with this wonderful school.
