Phil Richardson Room 10 Teacher - Year 7

This is Phil's second stint at Oamaru Intermediate School, having previously worked as a year 8 teacher in 2015 and 2016.

As a teacher, he enjoys the challenge of teaching and extending students in mathematics, while also helping students to discover joy in reading.

Having been brought up on the Isle of Man in the British Isles, Phil went on to study finance before training as a teacher and working in schools on the Indian Subcontinent, as well as here in Oamaru. He loves learning about different cultures, walking and exploring this beautiful country, running, football, and music - although his family (with 2 young children) tend to take up most of his free time!
