The School of the Good Shepherd is a Catholic parish primary school located in Gladstone Park a north-western suburb of Melbourne. The school was built in the 70s to accommodate the growing number of residents living in the Gladstone Park Parish. Currently there are two Catholic schools in the parish of Good Shepherd with School of the Good Shepherd taking enrolments from families living in the areas of Gladstone Park, Tullamarine, Westmeadows, Gowanbrae and Attwood.


The school community has evolved over the years from a mainly English speaking background to that of a multicultural one. While there are approximately thirty cultural groups represented in the school, there is no dominant cultural group. In recent years enrolments have been steadily growing particularly in the junior grades. At our 2017 census we had 348 students enrolled with this number expected to grow marginally over the next few years.

School of the Good Shepherd actively seeks to engage the school community in developing and deepening their relationship with the Catholic faith. The Parish Priest, Fr Dishan Candappa, teachers, parents and students acknowledge the school’s role in developing the children’s relationship with their Catholic faith. This is reflected through all aspects of school life.

School of the Good Shepherd is a community-minded school. It welcomes parents’ participation and recognises the importance of working in partnership with parents. A feature of the school is an active Parents and Friends Association and School Advisory Board who work closely with the School Leadership Team in developing many opportunities for the school community to come together. The PFA organises many activity days throughout the year to build community and fundraise.
