Stefano Lalara

GEBIE Group Director

The first member of his family to further his education, Stefano understands the need for children in his community on Bickerton Island to complete school. As a Community Liaison Officer, Stefano spent time talking to students, their families and teachers to keep them on track with their learning. He then became a Community Housing Officer for GEBIE before a heart attack forced him to move to Darwin to recuperate. In his second term as a GEBIE Director, Stefano is working with his Community to push for a full-time nurse on Bickerton Island instead of the existing one-day-a-week visit. He is especially proud that his work and education ethic has been passed down to his three dependants who are either studying or working.
