Dr Mark!

Another Doctor in the BGS Family!

Congratulations to our Director of Staff Development & Instruction, and newly minted Dr Mark Dowley who has completed his Doctor of Education (Ed.D). The ceremony was to take place in April, but Covid-19 had other ideas. Hopefully this picture taken at BGS will do for Mark’s proud mum and dad! Dr Mark’s research was on the impact of standardised testing programs on schools. Specifically, the value students place on NAPLAN and the impact it has on secondary school students.
