Established in 1986, St Mark’s is a thriving, well-regarded educational community in Perth’s northern coastal corridor. The School’s good reputation and long record of developing fine, well-rounded young people is built on established, strong foundations and the vision of providing a high-quality, inclusive and caring Christian education.
The School’s focus is to nurture successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens. Personal skills and strengths will have great value in the future as the nature of work changes.
The development of literacy, numeracy, ICT capability, critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability and ethical and cultural understanding will give students skills to navigate and thrive in the rapidly changing world. St Mark’s provides great opportunities for its students to equip themselves with such skills in a community that looks both inwards and outwards to engage with others for mutual benefit, finding rich and authentic contexts in which to learn and grow.
Our School’s Values – Respect, Knowledge, Confidence, Responsibility and Community – together with our faith are our constants, and give the whole School community comfort and direction. Our faith and values guide us every day in the choices and decisions we make, in the way we treat others, in the way we approach challenges and in everyday tasks.
The School employs over 200 staff, including teachers, education assistants, music tutors and administrative, grounds and maintenance staff. The School’s Christian ethos and values promote a positive and respectful work environment and a culture which attracts and retains high quality staff by fostering professionalism, collegiality, commitment, loyalty and strong pastoral care.
