Message from the Chair

After seventeen years of outstanding service at St Mark’s College, Rose Alwyn has announced her decision to resign, concluding her term as Master this year.

Rose will leave knowing that the St Marks experience is valued by our students.  Her dedication and hard work have ensured that the College is in excellent shape.

The Board has engaged Hender Consulting to search for a new Head of College and more information can be found here.  The Board is committed to appointing the best person to this important role, maintaining the ongoing success and stability of the College.

Since taking up her appointment as Master in 2008, Rose has been unwavering in her support for students as they participate and strive to excel in the academic, cultural and sporting activities of the College and their university studies.

Rose has worked tirelessly to ensure every student is welcomed, supported and given opportunities for leadership, pursuit of excellence and achievement in all facets of student life. She understands the importance of community service and connection.

The St Marks community has greatly appreciated and benefited from her leadership and commitment to the traditions of our College.  Although respecting history, Rose also recognised the need for renewal and change so that there is alignment with community expectations on all issues affecting the wellbeing of students.

Rose will leave an outstanding legacy, as well as fond memories for those who have got to know her during her tenure. There will be a number of occasions to pay tribute to Rose’s leadership and dedication before she leaves us and I know you will all join me in wishing her the very best for her future endeavours.
