GSCS House system

gscs-house-captains-smlGood Shepherd Christian School has two House Teams: Hunter and Blake.

Each House is distinguished by its own colour and unique community spirit. During events, the evident pride shown by students wearing their House colours and supporting their House is contagious.

The inter-house competition grows from strength-to-strength with many students participating in multiple events and record student numbers attending gala days; all contributing to healthy House system and competition.

House events include cross country and athletics carnival.

The Houses have been named to honour previous pastors of Good Shepherd Baptist Church namely, Pastor Hunter, 1980-1992 and Pastor Blake, 1992-1995.

 

Pastor Hunter

The Lord called Pastor Hunter to Himself in 1997 and the original church building has been dedicated to his name. He served as pastor of Good Shepherd Baptist Church for 11 years.

 

Pastor Wilf BlakePastor Wilf Blake (1992-1995) was appointed pastor of GSBC in 1992, having been appointed school pastor previously in 1983. Pastor Blake, along with his wife, has played an integral part in establishing Good Shepherd Christian School where Mrs Blake continues to serve to this day. Pastor Blake rescinded his full-time church pastoral duties in 1995 upon the appointment of Pastor Sehmish but continued in active work at GSCS until his retirement in 2008.
