GSLPS Important Community News

Good Shepherd has received notice of two separate incidents of attempted abduction of children in the surrounding community in recent days.

One incident occurred at a Wonga Park Netball Club training, and another incident occurred in Mooroolbark. While neither incident involved Good Shepherd students, as these incidents have occurred within our wider community, it was felt important to bring them to your attention. The police have been informed of the incidents and are taking it very seriously.

With the likelihood of many children participating in Halloween activities tonight, it is very important that parents are extra vigilant with their supervision of their children.

Most Likely to Succeed

Attention All Staff,
Good Shepherd Staff have received an invitation from Kim Powell at LEVNT to attend a screening of the film “Most Likely to Succeed” which will be held at Luther College on Wednesday August 23 at 7:30pm. “Most Likely To Succeed” is an inspirational film about change in education.  More details will come out shortly. It would be good to have as many people as possible there on the night. The film promises to spark some engaging discussion about what is possible in teaching and learning.
Regards,

5ST get into the spirit of giving

When 5ST received the Gifts of Grace catalogues and browsed through to see the many ways they can help others in need, they wondered how they might be able to help. The students came up with the idea of fundraising some money to help school children in Cambodia and felt inspired to act straight away. 5ST set themselves a goal to raise $96 to purchase two school desks and then set about planning a lunchtime fundraiser for the School.

Last Friday, 5ST set up a variety of stalls in the Multipurpose room including cupcakes, cookies, lollies, lucky dips, stationery and even a hair-braiding service. They also offered a donation jar for anyone who would simply like to donate to the cause. Well done to everyone in 5ST (and their parents) who baked and prepared for the day. It was incredibly successful. The total raised was $788.15, well above their target. Thank you to everyone who contributed. 5ST have now been able to purchase six school desks as well as 18 school scholarships for children in Cambodia. What a wonderful gift! Congratulations to Mrs Tuffin and 5ST… Service Learning in action!

District Athletics

The District Athletics Carnival was conducted on Tuesday with 43 students attending and representing the School. At the end of competition, Good Shepherd placed first in the Field Events and finished 5th overall. Congratulations to all students who took part on the day. We wish those students who will now progress to the next level of the competition all the very best.
