The staff, families and students of Faith Lutheran College are pleased to be welcoming Michelle Keller as Head of Junior School, commencing in Term 2 of this year. The Junior Campus has seen many changes and challenges over the years. Today is no different.
Whilst we are in a state of great uncertainty and change, we look to each other and our leaders for direction, inspiration and comfort. Michelle’s demonstrated leadership and passion for education will enable her to step into this role and guide the Junior Campus through these uncertain times with care and expertise.
As Michelle prepares to commence her position as Head of Junior School, her appointment in 2020 coincides with the School’s celebration of 175 years of education.
It was in an act of faith in 1845 that the Langmeil Schule first welcomed students eager to develop their knowledge and set the foundation for a lifetime of learning in a caring Christian environment. As the school grew, the generations that followed continued to build on those strong foundations, developing into a respected and thriving learning community.
The school has remained steadfast despite the challenges, including government closures during wartime. Throughout the 175 years, the sense of pride, vision and community has remained strong and has underpinned the community that continues to thrive today.
Whilst buildings and leaders have come and gone, what remains at the heart of this vibrant community is passionate people, dedicated educators and caring students who, just like the generations that walked the corridors before them, have a deep love and care for each individual and the learning path before them.
As Michelle leads the school in the years ahead, her passion, knowledge and sense of community will enable the School to continue to flourish. At the heart of every plan and decision, even in this uncertain time, is the best interests of each individual student and ensuring through well researched learning and wellbeing programs, that every child has the opportunity to achieve personal excellence and develop skills ready for our ever-changing world.
As the School celebrates its 175th year of education, staff and students will commemorate this milestone in various ways throughout the year. The School invites the extended community to ‘Like’ them on Facebook to ensure the stories and memories are shared throughout the community.
