Good Samaritan Catholic College opened in 2019 and has quickly grown into a vibrant community. The College is a place where the motto “Journey with Compassion" is put into action every day. As a Catholic College, we 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 is authentically Catholic and a place where our faith will be evidenced by our actions, especially when we “cross the road" to assist others. As a place of learning, 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 is a place where every student is valued as a person and encouraged to participate in all the College has to offer. From Prep to Year 12, students have the opportunity to explore many and varied pathways in their learning.
Core to the identity of the College is that we encourage and respect everyone and strive 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, our Good Sams Identity will be one that all will want to embrace and contribute to. Young people will be proud to graduate as a Good Sams student. The College plays an important part in the Nambour Parish and we work 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 continuing the journey we have started to help build an exciting future for Good Samaritan Catholic College.
