Our History

Inspiring life-long learning since 1962.

Good Shepherd has been delivering quality Christian education in Angaston for over sixty years.

The school opened its doors to thirty-eight children on the 6th of February 1962. The building consisted of three modest classrooms, a large corridor (also used for assemblies), staff room and office. The children’s playground was yet to be built.

Sixty years later, Good Shepherd now boasts modern learning spaces utilising the latest technology and incorporating latest research to support the very best approaches to teaching and learning. The first students wouldn’t recognise their school!

Much has changed since 1962, but Good Shepherd’s commitment to its original objective – to deliver quality, Christian education in Angaston – remains as strong as ever.

Our Brand.

Good Shepherd has recently launched its freshly updated branding, which signifies the new and exciting direction in which we are heading.

The new logo retains the strong focus on our Christian foundation with a cross at the centre and a stylised representation of the Trinity whilst also acknowledging our heritage colours of blue and maroon. The branding and language present a crisp, modern, dynamic approach that focuses on our core messages of caring and nurturing the whole child. The branding and themes will be gradually rolled out across all our communications, from web and digital to signage, publications and uniforms.
