New Staff


Welcome to Shepherdson College. This page will hopefully provide you with all the information necessary to get you started here at school and in the community of Galiwin'ku. A first port of call for information is the Staff Handbook which has information on the school, community, housing, culture and more. This page has much of the same information as the Staff Handbook, but more in more detail for new teachers.
