Welcome to Mark Poulsum, DC’s Head of Secondary

Posted: June 21, 2019

We are pleased to welcome Mark Poulsum as Discovery College’s new Head of Secondary. Mark will join us at the start of Term 2 in January 2020. Mark is currently Vice Principal at ESF King George V School, where he has led Teacher Professional Learning and the development of collaborative practices. He has also had a range of other responsibilities including fostering pedagogical innovations, project based learning and performance management. Mark has lived in HK for eleven years and is originally from the UK. He and his wife Sherly have four children, Wikky (aged 17), Kevin (aged 13) and Karina and Thomas (twins aged 6), and are looking forward with great excitement to being part of the DC community at the start of 2020. Peter Lasscock, our current Deputy Head of College, will step into the interim Head of Secondary role until Mark starts with us until then.
