Staff Spotlight – Thomas Prebble
studied in Dunedin at Otago University for 4 years and am now a
registered pharmacist. I have lived in Queenstown for the last 15 months
but have just moved back to Nelson.
My favourite past times are
sports and the outdoors, I play most sports and like learning new ones.
Lately I have been doing lots of whitewater kayaking and paddled my
first grade 4 last weekend.I am super excited about coming to North
Star, and after camp I plan to travel around the States for a bit and
then head up to Canada for the winter. This will be my first summer at
camp and I’ll be instructing wakeboarding and golf.
