Welcome to Good Shepherd C.E.S. Our faith is central to all we do. We begin, end and fill the middle with our faith. Masses, prayer services and spiritual celebrations are enjoyed by all. We are closely linked to St. Elizabeth Seton Parish and are blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive relationship.
Students enjoy many activities and experiences here at Good Shepherd C.E.S. Carnival week, skating, tubing, our annual Terry Fox run, sports, virtue assemblies, family evenings such as our S.T.E.M. night this past year, our intermediate trip to Ottawa and more.
Our strength is our people. Our students, staff, Catholic School Council, Parish and wonderful parent community work together to make Good Shepherd C.E.S. the great place it is.
Mrs. M. Damiano
Athletic representatives from many schools organize an annual cycle of after-school sports each year.~ It includes Cross-Country Running, Volleyball, Basketball and Track & Field.~ Students at Good Shepherd participate enthusiastically and in large numbers in these activities. “Intra-murals” provide all students opportunities to extend their skills in games taught within the Physical Education Program.~ Day trips, and some over-night excursions provide students with further opportunities to experience more individual outdoor sports.
Special Education is offered for children with needs that are identified as exceptional by Ministry of Education criteria.~ Instruction of all exceptional students relies on a partnership between classroom teachers and Core Resource Teachers, though the Core Resource Teachers are primarily responsible for the Individual Education Plan for these students.~ The school is also host to an Intensive Support and Assessment Centre for students whose learning disabilities are best addressed in that setting.
Catholic School Council
Our Catholic School Council functions as an advisory body to the school principal and on occasion to the board.~ The council provides advice on a variety of issues and reflects our school community.~ Although our community is quite small our Catholic School Council is very positive and active in supporting school and staff goals. They have contributed to the purchase of yard games, class equipment and materials, Grade 8 Graduation, school excursions, bussing for athletic activities, computers for our library computer lab, hot lunches (weekly), a milk program and other valuable school based student support activities. We thank them for their ongoing support.
