Mark commenced work at Calrossy in 1996, having previously taught in the public education system in Moree and for a year in Toronto, Canada. He has been in the Deputy Principal role since 2001. This is a position which has entailed being involved in much change over the years and has brought both challenges and great joys.
Mathematics is Mark’s area of teaching. He continues to have approximately a third of a full time teaching load, often involving classes on both campuses. Striving for ways to improve students’ development of thinking continues to be a motivating force, both for Mark as an individual and for the school as a whole.
Mark is married to Rachel and they have four children, two of whom completed all their schooling at Calrossy Anglican School and two more who are still students at the school.
In addition to wanting to see all students grow in their capacity to think deeply, develop healthy relationship skills and see their potential for a positive role in the world, Mark is a Christian whose hope for the students is that they give proper consideration to what Jesus has done for them and that they respond appropriately to this. Mark and his family are part of St.Paul’s Anglican Church.
