Marc holds a Bachelor of Laws/Arts as well as a Graduate Diploma in Education from the University of Melbourne. Marc is highly regarded globally as a strong Jewish Educator.

Having attended The King David School in his primary schooling, Marc is the first alumnus to become Principal of a Jewish School in Melbourne, and is well known throughout the Jewish community.

With proven experience in culture setting, change management and strategic goal setting, Marc has been an active member of the Senior Management Team across the K-12 continuum of Melbourne’s top performing Jewish Schools.

Marc is looking forward to the ‘privilege of shaping values and capacities of the next generation of The King David School’ and to working alongside Michele Bernshaw for a smooth and seamless transition.

I would like to thank my fellow members of the selection panel who gave many hours of their time through this rigorous recruitment process.

Marc is very much looking forward to becoming part of The King David School and I look forward to introducing him to staff, students, parents and other members of the School community in 2014.

Mark Light will take up his new post at the beginning of  Term 2, 2014.
