Our School

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Good Samaritan Catholic Primary School, a culturally rich and diverse learning community. The charism of our School is inspired by the parable of the Good Samaritan, which illuminates the life-giving influence of justice, compassion, mercy and respect on our encounters with each other.

 

It’s an exciting time to be part of our School Community as we are going through a period of development and change.  This is driven by our desire to ensure that every child has a successful and enjoyable learning experiencewhile at school.

We envisage for each child that their time at Good Samaritan is a pilgrimage of learning and revelation that will have him or her pass through Learning Villages that are developmentally appropriate to his or her age and stage of learning. As such, each child will experience a variety of learning environments of ever increasing complexity and challenge, fostering creativity, promoting strong interpersonal relationships and stimulating excitement and wonder for the world around them.

Our school is an important means through which the Church proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the world of today.  

We understand that, created in the image and likeness of God, each child is creative, oriented to life and love, and filled with infinite possibility. As such, each child can reveal something of God, which provides them with a unique dignity that deserves unconditional respect. 

In this context, our approaches to curriculum and pedagogy are deeply rooted in our Christian faith, and empower students with the essential knowledge, skills and capacities for lifelong learning and a life fully lived.

At Good Samaritan Catholic Primary School we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our school. Our commitment is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel.
