Our Missions In Lebanon Education

IN HAMMANA, A HISTORICAL SCHOOL

In 1895, the first home of the Good Shepherd Sisters was built in High Metn, at 30 Km from Beirut. At the time, the High Metn was a region devastated by successive wars. To set an example of tolerance, reconciliation, and multi-confessional coexistence, the sisters decided to settle there. Its unique mixture of Christians, Druze, and Muslims is somehow representative of Lebanon on a smaller scale. Undermined by the civil war, this now-fragile harmony required social and educational support, a cause to which Good Shepherd School contributed. Their presence during the difficult times of war encouraged villagers not to abandon their community and villages.
National sense of belonging and civic education

Without discrimination on the basis of race, nationality,

  • Promote values of equality and mutual respect to ensure equitable access to knowledge
  • Provide pedagogic support for students facing difficulties and secure the necessary means to improve their chances of success
  • Reinforce a sense of national identity through civic education
  • School for service-learning programs
  • Offer academic and extracurricular support through psychosocial follow-up and recreational activities promoting healthy habits
