I am excited about the future for Good Samaritan Catholic College and the community that will be built from the ground up. The College will be a place where the motto “Journey with Compassion" is put into action every day. As a Catholic College, we will strive to ensure that the faith life of our young people and all in the community is encouraged, nurtured and grown in every person. Further, the College will be authentically Catholic and a place where our faith will be evidenced by our actions. The wonderful example and charism of the Good Samaritan sisters is an inspiration for the work that will take place. As a place of learning, I envisage a College where all students are able to achieve success through the work of dedicated and passionate teachers, outstanding facilities and a supportive community. I am dedicated to ensuring that all young people in our care exceed their expectations and achieve to the highest level possible. The College will be a place where every student is valued as a person and encouraged to participate in all the College has to offer. I am looking forward to building a culture within the College that builds respect for all and strives for excellence in all things. I am passionate about building community and understand that every person brings a unique wisdom to the College. By being clear around expectations and collaborative in building structures, the developing culture will be one that all will want to embrace and contribute to. The College will also play an important part in the Nambour Parish and I look forward to working with the communities of St John's and St Joseph's, as well as the Nambour Parish community, to foster important relationships and active participation in the faith life of the Parish. I look forward to using my 30 years of experience as a Principal in Catholic schools, from small country schools to large P-12 Colleges, to help build an exciting future for Good Samaritan Catholic College.Greg MyersFoundation PrincipalGreg commenced as foundation Principal of Good Samaritan Catholic College in April 2018, ahead of the college formally opening in January 2019.
