Mr Larry Stackpoole
Role: Environmental Science
I have taught in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia. These experiences have allowed me to teach in a range of roles from preschool through to Year Eight and I am passionate about Science and Sustainability. Teaching overseas gave me many wonderful memories and I look forward to creating new ones at our fabulous school. Outside of school I enjoy reading and working in the garden. I will be very excited implementing a range of new sustainable measures at our school. I would love any help. Please feel free to drop in and introduce yourself.
