Introducing Daniel Favretti
For those I haven’t met yet, let me introduce myself. My name is Daniel Favretti and I am the Wellbeing Mentor for Year 8, Missions Coordinator for Middle School and Ancient History Teacher.
I began at Penrith Christian School at the beginning of 2018 in a temporary position, which became permanent at the end of the year. I knew from the beginning that God had opened the door to this amazing school, and my prayer was that I would be able to stay, which He has answered in such a beautiful way. I have taught at numerous primary and high schools throughout the Macarthur area, yet arriving at PCS has felt like a homecoming.
I am also newly married, having tied the knot to my beautiful wife Sarah, in May 2018. We met whilst studying a Diploma of Ministry and the rest is history. Sarah is currently studying a Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy at Western Sydney University. As for me, I studied at the University of Sydney, completing a Bachelor of Education, and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Ancient History.
As a follower of Jesus for the past eight years, my life has been transformed and is continually being transformed by His relentless and gracious love. From this, it is my greatest passion to teach students and help them know and experience the love of God throughout their schooling days, so they may carry it throughout their whole life.
Missions is a significant part of my life, having been to the Philippines and Zambia on several occasions to serve the local church. Yet ‘missions’ is not an international agenda but begins on an individual and local level. I am very excited to be working on the Missions team to give opportunities to Middle School to partner with God in expanding His Kingdom both locally and abroad.
I look forward to meeting you.
In His love,
HSIE Teacher, Year 8 Wellbeing Mentor, Middle School Leader of Missions
