School Policies

School Policies

Knowing everyone is guided by the same rules and procedures assists our students in feeling connected to their school community. Our various policies have been developed to ensure our school functions effectively.

The Diocesan Education Council (DEC) assists the Bishop in formulating the Townsville Diocesan Catholic Education vision and identity. The DEC makes and monitors educational policies so that they are consistent with the Diocesan Mission Statement. The policy framework of the Diocesan Education Council provides a unifying focus for all Diocesan schools, and schools formulate additional policies to address operational aspects of school life.

Privacy Policy

We consider all personal, sensitive and health information of parents or caregivers, students and prospective employees to be private and will only use information collected and recorded to fulfil the educational mission of the Catholic Education Office of the Diocese of Townsville.

Code of Conduct for Parents 

All system schools in the Townsville Diocese have adopted a Code of Conduct for Parents, and all parents/carers are asked to abide by the rights, responsibilities and ethos outlined in this document.

Good Shepherd Catholic School recognises the need to promote a safe environment for all in its community.
