School Principal – Rob Nelson

Hi, my name is Rob Nelson. I am really excited to have joined the Rocketstars Academy team.

I have been an educator for 40 years. My most recent role was as Principal of Bannockburn College, a P-12 school of 800+ students near Geelong. I am a trained primary teacher. I also enjoyed a stint in Curriculum Branch at the Department of Education for 5 years looking after primary science for the whole state.  I spent the last 15 years of my career as a Principal, a very rewarding role.

My role with Rocketstars Academy is to help guide the Academy’s development and growth and ensure it delivers for every child.  I am really looking forward to working with everyone to deliver on the goal of helping every child to be the best they can be. I will be helping build the Academy to meet all of its regulatory and educational targets and to collaborate with everyone so we can all be “the best that we can be!”
