It is with profound sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Jonas Stoebe, a cherished member of our Glenaeon family. Jonas Stoebe tragically lost his life resulting from a ski accident that occurred on 6 September, while accompanying a group of students on a school ski trip at Perisher.
Head of School, Diana Drummond said, “Jonas Stoebe was more than just an educator; he was a mentor, a friend, and an inspiration to all who knew him. With unwavering dedication, Jonas had been part of our school community for 10 years, leaving an indelible mark on countless students' lives.”
During his time at Glenaeon, Jonas exhibited a profound passion for teaching sport and a genuine love for our students. His enthusiasm for Steiner education extended beyond the classroom and the sporting fields, as he actively managed various extracurricular activities. He also supported numerous charities through his work.
Our school community is heartbroken by this loss. We extend our deepest condolences to Jonas’s family, friends, and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time. The impact Jonas had on our school and the lives of our students is immeasurable, and his memory will forever remain in our hearts.
A Go Fund Me campaign has been set up by friends and colleagues to support Jonas' family at this difficult time. Please donate if you can. https://gofund.me/9ad716d7
