At a time when the trend in education is towards larger Foundation - Year 12 campuses, often referred to as ‘super-schools’, Good Shepherd Lutheran School Para Vista deliberately and proudly remains a medium-sized independent primary school. We strongly believe that this structure ensures:
All students develop and maintain an identity.
High standards of behaviour and consistent, effective behavioural support is offered.
Staff and the wider community are able to maximise individual attention, focus care and take a personal interest in each child’s journey, and
Application and effort is celebrated as individual potential is maximised.
Early Learning to Year 12 journey in partnership with Endeavour College
Whilst we acknowledge the enormous benefits of medium sized schools, we passionately strive for the provision of a seamless Early Learning to Year 12 educational pathway where consistent values and expectations are promoted across the early learning, primary, and secondary years. Good Shepherd Lutheran Primary School Para Vista in cooperation with Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes, provides this pathway.
School leaders, staff and students, mix across the campuses, planning, interacting and delivering engaging student experiences and opportunities, and our graduating students have priority entry to Endeavour College.
"Endeavour feels just like Good Shepherd, so starting secondary school was fun… I liked moving to a new school for secondary – it was new and exciting but easy too, because both places feel the same." James - Year 9
