Dear Students and Families:

Welcome to Good Shepherd Catholic School. We are a small rural school that serves the towns of Thamesville, Dresden, Bothwell and the communities and areas of northeastern Kent County.

On behalf of the staff at Good Shepherd Catholic School, I would like to welcome our families to another school year of Catholic Education in Ontario. Along with the support of the St. Clair Catholic District School Board, we look forward to providing a safe, nurturing environment in order to bring out the best in our students. Together we will grow academically, socially, emotionally and physically in a bright, clean and wonderful facility. We welcome all our partnerships with the local parish, parents, volunteers and transportation operators and together we will take-up the challenge of providing the best learning opportunities for our students.

Communication with our community is a vital element to our success. Relationships are built on trust and transparency. Please feel free to contact the school and make use of our website, newsletters and calendars. Monthly masses, fund-raising events, snack program and school council meetings are just a few items that require our community’s involvement and participation.

Privacy Advisory

Our families and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents and the school community through teams, clubs and special events. Many of these are ‘memory making’ for families and as such, photographs and videos are often taken.

We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube or Facebook). Your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
