Principal's Message

Meet our College Principal

Welcome to the Good Samaritan Catholic College website. As the Acting Principal of the College I am both honoured and have the privilege of welcoming you to our excellent College.


Good Samaritan Catholic College provides a quality Catholic Education by developing exceptional Good Samaritan People and exceptional Good Samaritan Students.  We do this within a learning culture that focuses on personal best for all students in an environment of high expectations with high support.  Our staff believe in three principles for student learning; Student at the Centre; Know your Student and Know your Impact.

The school’s motto ‘Journeying with Compassion’, derived directly from the parable of the Good Samaritan, provides the underlying ethos of its mission statement. The College encourages students to grow as individuals by ‘Encountering God’, ‘Promoting Educational Excellence’, ‘Nurturing Individual Growth’ and ‘Being a Samaritan’.  


Good Samaritan Catholic College is committed to the mission and vision of Sydney Catholic schools through our extensive faith, evangelisation and social justice initiatives that have Jesus and the Gospels at the centre of everything that we do. 

The College is committed to providing a comprehensive education that addresses the learning of each individual student and offers a diverse range of curriculum offerings. These include the Newman Gifted Education Program that challenges students through extension opportunities across multiple subjects across Years 7 to 10. The College also offers an extensive range of specialist vocational training courses at the St Joseph Trade Skills Centre, proudly part of Good Samaritan Catholic College. The St Joseph Trade Skills Centre also offers its vocational curriculum to local partner SCS Colleges and is a central hub of vocational learning for Year 11 and 12 students across the South West, Aerotropolis and Horsley Networks.   


The co-curricular life of our College offers opportunities for students to participate in Encounter Youth Group, performing arts (music, art, dance, drama), Media Team, debating, public speaking, STEM, Garden Club and extensive internal and external sporting opportunities that support students to compete at state and national level.  


A welcoming environment and effective communication processes ensure that parents work in partnership with the College in the education of their sons and daughters. The result is a diverse, dynamic, strong and confident community that is called to develop the gifts of love, justice, mercy and compassion through a quality Catholic education of young people. The College encourages a culture of student leadership across Years 7 to 12.


We encourage all visitors to contact us via email, phone or in person if you wish to find out more or have any questions.  We also encourage you to explore our website, which contains an abundance of information about our College.


Mr Pablo Grana

Acting Principal
