Mr Mark Finlayson – Year Adviser 

My name is Mark Finlayson, and I am proud to be the Year 7 Adviser for 2023. I have taught at Gorokan High School for over four years, and I am enthusiastic about our students and our school community. We have so much to offer your children and I am excited to support them through the many opportunities that come their way.

I am someone your child will know when they come to Gorokan High School and can come to for assistance. I am a point of call for any questions regarding your child in Year 7 until the end of Year 12. If there are challenges that arise throughout their high school journey, I will be able to assist in supporting your child with the resources our school possess. I work closely with the school Wellbeing Team and classroom teachers to ensure the needs of each student are being met to allow them every opportunity to achieve success. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your children throughout their time at Gorokan High School.
