Principal's Welcome - Evie Stevens

Good Shepherd Lutheran School Para Vista


Welcome to Good Shepherd Lutheran School at Para Vista, where we provide the highest quality education to prepare your children for life and share the teachings of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the interconnectedness of everything. At the core of our educational philosophy is the understanding that learning is deeply relational. We are committed to providing the highest quality education that goes beyond traditional boundaries, and our values of Love, Optimism, and Creativity align seamlessly with our belief that learning is essential to our humanness.

Our curriculum is designed to be purposeful, offering rich learning experiences through conceptual and project-based learning that empowers each student and fosters critical thinking. With modern facilities and a dedicated teaching and support staff, learning is playful and challenging, responding to the unique needs and interests of each student.

At the core of our ethos lies compassion. Within our community, learners participate in respectful and open dialogue, being mindful of inequity and bias. Our approach to learning is anchored in love and justice, shaping our community into an ethical space that values inclusion, understanding, compassion, justice, and love.

Grounded in Christian beliefs and values, we strive to create a learning environment where everyone is free to flourish.

We honour the wisdom of First Nations people and the diversity of the community that we serve. We promote a growing appreciation for the interconnectedness of all, and our commitment to embracing the future with confidence ensures that our learning community nurtures students to be critical thinkers and problem solvers who are compassionate, purposeful, adventurous, and relational.

Join me on one of my principal’s tours to explore our vision for your child’s education and witness our vibrant and inclusive environment firsthand. I look forward to welcoming you to the Good Shepherd Lutheran School community, where faith, education, and community shape bright futures.
