Principal
Cape Naturaliste College

Mark has had extensive experience, both as a teacher and school leader, in seven senior high schools and colleges in both metropolitan and regional locations, mostly in low SEI contexts. He maintains a current interest in Science and Mathematics teaching and learning, has a Master’s Degree in Educational Management and is a member of ACEL.

Mark strongly believes that regional schools have a unique set of factors that need to be addressed to make sure students and communities are not disadvantaged. This was a driver for him to join the WASSEA Committee and he believes that our state system has a responsibility to provide all students from all backgrounds with the education they deserve, free from privilege. He says that the public school system “should be one that is proud to provide the keys to unlock a million futures”.

As a Committee member, Mark has represented WASSEA in interstate forums and STEM school visits. He has also supported future leaders at the WASSEA Aspirant Leaders seminars held in Bunbury.
