About our team
Amongst the classroom and resource teaching staff there is a balance of maturity, experience, youth and new ideas. The staff are enthused and energised about the programs being run now, and those proposed for the future. They are willing to take on new ideas in the knowledge that they will be improving themselves and the school which will lead to greater learning outcomes for the students. They are vibrant, enthusiastic and committed to moving forward as a group and a school to provide greater opportunity for the students.
The Leadership team is led by the Principal, Fathma Mauger, with 30 years in Northern Territory Education. Many of these years have been as a leader in a variety of schools across Darwin and Palmerston. In the time Fathma has been at the school she has introduced many changes which are having an impact on the staff and students leading to improvements in teaching and the academic results of the students.
At Larrakeyah, we are fortunate to have two AP’s- Natasha Guse and Rick Collister. Natasha and Rick have a long and varied background in education, having taught in numerous schools over the years. Rick has over 40 years teaching experience in Victoria, the NT and Papua New Guinea. He has a strong commitment to developing the whole child- academically socially and emotionally. Natasha has developed her love and passion for teaching throughout her time in the Territory which are evident in her passions in curriculum and 21st Century Learning.
The Senior Teachers have experience in a number of schools across Darwin in classroom and leadership roles. They provide a youthful perspective in the Leadership team.
