Good Shepherd Lutheran School Para Vista is a Reception to Year 6 school (R-12 in cooperation with Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes) of the Lutheran Church of Australia. Good Shepherd is one of over 85 Lutheran schools educating more than 40,000 students in Australia. The school was first opened with 94 students in 1981 and has grown to its current managed enrolment of approximately 350 students. It is organised into four distinct stages of learning. All students are valued individually and in each learning journey, application and effort is celebrated as students are challenged to fulfill their potential.
Our curriculum focuses strongly on literacy and numeracy while also providing rich and deep learning experiences in all other curriculum areas. Specialist areas include visual and performing arts, a second language, and physical education. We also provide substantial support for students identified with learning needs, both gifted and those challenged by learning difficulties. We enjoy strong partnerships with our families who generously involve themselves in many aspects of school life. Our students and staff enjoy the benefits of working in a superbly well-resourced, comfortable and safe environment.
Together with Endeavour College we provide a seamless Reception to Year 12 Lutheran education for families across our broad catchment.
Our graduating students have priority entry to Endeavour College.
