Celebrating 10 Years

This week marks (excuse the pun!) 10 years since Marc Light was appointed Principal of The King David School.

He followed Michele Bernshaw, who as Principal for over 15 years, made a significant contribution in shaping the School.

Marc came to King David after several years as an educator at both Mt Scopus and Bialik Colleges and holds a Bachelor of Laws/Arts as well as a Graduate Diploma in Education from the University of Melbourne. In the announcement of his appointment, the then School Council President of King David, Mark Harrison, credited Marc as someone who is “respected globally as a strong Jewish Educator”.

An added feather to Marc’s cap was he was also the first alumnus to become Principal of a Jewish School in Melbourne, having attended The King David School from Kindergarten to late Primary.

Over the last 10 years, Marc has navigated changing landscapes in the education sector with strong leadership and a sharp focus on maintaining the unique culture and values of the School, not to mention ably steering the School through the difficult Covid years.

Marc’s exceptional integrity and humanity as well as his unwavering commitment to serving the School community has placed King David in the enviable position as one of the most innovative and high performing schools in the country.

Happy Anniversary Marc! Looking forward to celebrating the next decade of your service.
