Students entering senior schooling at Good Shepherd Catholic College in 2013 are up for an amazing experience.
The highlight of the year will most likely be the Year 11 School Retreat to Sydney, Canberra and the Snow Fields. This will be a time to reflect on life, school and family and build relationships with current and new friends.
Students will also begin to understand the importance of hard work, study, time management and the balancing act of all this combined with fun, enjoyment, relaxation, spiritualty and being a teenager. As a school, we are dedicated to offering our students the best opportunities to teach them the skills they will need to survive in this fast, technology driven world that we live. As year 11 students, they have the opportunity to study for many different career paths and we have a dedicated team of professionals that are willing to assist them along their journey.
Students will also be able to experience opportunities to work within the community during Pastoral Care lessons by working alongside the Catholic Church and within the Catholic Primary Schools. Non-QCS students will have the opportunity to study safe driving practices with the opportunity to receive 1 point toward their QCE.
As the year 11 Pastoral Care Coordinator, I am privileged to have such a wonderful cohort of students to be amongst and am blessed to have the opportunity to accompany them on their senior schooling journey from now through until they graduate at the end of year 12. Although I anticipate the full spectrum of teenage emotions over the next two years, I am positive we will share much laughter and create many life long memories.
