Why Are They Here - James Faraone
"I am James Faraone, the current Head of Middle Years at Good Shepherd Lutheran College.
I was drawn to the territory late last century with a passion for life and education of the younger generation. A wise old man once told me that if you do something you love you’ll never work a day in your life - and that’s just what I’ve done through working in education.
I feel truly blessed to be able to work with and have an impact on the lives of young people and be part of their journey in becoming fine upstanding global citizens. I do not see education simply as the ABC’s and 123’s but as education of the whole person including academics, spirituality and wellbeing.
The IB is 21st century learning at its finest. Utilising the best practice inquiry approach helps to prepare students for the world where the skills of collaboration, problem solving, compassion, communication, self-management and critical thinking are invaluable.
Good Shepherd is indeed a wonderful place to work and live; for which I will be forever grateful and proud".
