Suzanne Farley, Deputy Principal Learning and Teaching at Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, Braybrook, has been recognised by The Knowledge Review as one of the 10 most inspiring educational leaders in Australia.

‘I’m honoured to be recognised by The Knowledge Review and its editorial board as one of 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.

With more than 20 years of experience, Suzanne has helped improve the school’s academic results in numerous ways. Most notably, she implemented the Reading Program in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, which boosted the school’s NAPLAN results. She has also been recognised by The Educator in its 2019 Hot List as a mover and shaker in leading Australia’s schools into the 21st century.

‘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’, said Principal Marco Di Cesare.
