Tributes flow for 'incredible' Sydney school teacher after skiing accident



Tributes are flowing for a Sydney school teacher who died after a tragic skiing accident at Perisher.

Jonas Stoebe was leading a snow tour for Year 9 and Year 11 students from Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School, located on Sydney's lower north shore, when he crashed and suffered a catastrophic brain injury.

The 55-year-old died last week, leaving behind a partner and two young sons.

The school community launched a fundraiser four days ago to support Stoebe's family, which has since raised close to $250,000.

Stoebe is being remembered among the school community as a "cherished member of our Glenaeon family".

"Jonas was more than just an educator; he was a mentor, a friend, and an inspiration to all who knew him," the school posted on Facebook last week.
