Principal's Message

Welcome to The Good Shepherd Catholic School.  We are a vibrant school community in the heart of Barrie, Ontario.  As you read through the pages of this site, you will learn about our wonderful students, our School, and get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of our faith-filled community.

We aim to give every student in our care the very best possible education in order to prepare them for life beyond school. We are a 'Learning Community' which encourages staff, students, and parents to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life while bringing the Gospel Values to life.  

The Good Shepherd has a very strong and supportive Catholic School Community Council that works together with the staff to provide a value-added experience for our students. 

Our vision of education extends far beyond the classroom. We encourage our students to involve themselves in the broad co-curricular program available.  Learning here takes place in many shapes and forms. Students have the opportunity to participate fully in sports, on the stage, in leadership activities and special interest groups.

We expect high standards in all that we do at The Good Shepherd. We encourage our students to aim high in their studies, to work hard and to be sensitive to the rights and needs of others.

Of course, this website cannot take the place of visiting our School; I warmly welcome you to visit our School by contacting us, and discover firsthand what makes The Good Shepherd so special.
