At Good Shepherd, we planted a Garden of Hearts to:

- remind students of the learning we have done this year in Indigenous Education

- to foster a future in reconciliation (We are part of the Truth and Reconciliation)

- to make the community aware of our commitment to Indigenous Education

- to involve the community in our learning



Good Shepherd Catholic School is located in Blackburn Hamlet and was opened in 1971. The Good Shepherd School community believes that a Catholic school is one in which the teachings of Jesus Christ are integrated into the day-to-day curriculum and social fabric of school life. Our school board theme is "Seek Justice, Love Kindness & Mercy, Walk Humbly with God"  Micah 6:8

In that spirit our motto is Safe Happy Learn. In partnership with parents we work to  provide a nurturing environment focused on the development of problem solving skills through inquiry and engagement.

Our committed and dedicated staff work collaboratively to provide high quality learning opportunities that maximize student involvement and creativity. 

We welcome all students to a safe and inclusive environment.


If your child normally takes the school bus home at the end of the day but you are picking them up instead, please ensure you sign them out at the front office so we are aware they are not taking the bus. Thank you.

When parking in our parking lot in the morning and after school, please remember to be mindful of other cars as well as students. Remember Safety First.

An important reminder that there is no parking in the handicap parking spaces in the school's parking lot. There are signs indicating the designated spots. We appreciate your assistance in this very important safety issue.


If you would like to volunteer at the school, please contact the front office. We are in particular need of volunteers in the library as well as Council events.
