Caroline Chisholm Catholic College’s Deputy Principal Learning and Teaching, Suzanne Farley, has been identified as one of The 10 Most Inspiring Educational Leaders in Australia by the editorial board of The Knowledge Review. The announcement was made last week and published in its 2020 Education Edition:

“I’m honoured to be recognised by The Knowledge Review and its editorial board as one of the Australia’s leading educators. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is a vibrant and diverse community. This recognition reflects the hard work and dedication our staff and students have to learning excellence,” said Suzanne.

The Knowledge Review is an international education magazine for schools, students, teachers and parents offering news, blogs, articles and insights into global education systems. The Knowledge Review gives a broad view of the sector from the point of view of a student, educator and schools. As one of the top international education and knowledge provider magazines, The Knowledge Review is made to serve as a bridge between students, educators and schools.

“The 2020 academic year has challenged us like never before. However, amidst all the change, we have been able to overcome these challenges and maintain a focus on learning excellence. We’ve had to be innovative and unafraid to try new ways of delivering learning excellence. This has been integral to how our students learn, try new things, reflect and evaluate,” added Suzanne.

Suzanne has been instrumental in the College’s improved academic results including the implementation of a Reading Program in collaboration with University of Melbourne which has delivered significant improvements in the College’s NAPLAN results. In 2019 the College was named by Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) in Its My School High Achievers, and Suzanne, was also named by The Educator Magazine as a mover and shaker in leading Australia’s schools into the 21st century in its annual Hot List 2019.

Principal Marco Di Cesare said, “Suzanne has transformed the College’s approach to learning and teaching and preparing its 1500 students across three campuses for life beyond secondary school with a much more personalised learning program. On behalf of the entire College community we congratulate her for this outstanding recognition.”
