Mr Ramasary loves Mathematics, as he finds it the most precise and concise way of expressing an idea. As the Director of Mathematics, Mark enjoys seeing students once they leave school use the Mathematical processes that they have learnt together with problem solving techniques to innovate, use data, create and change the world for the better. Having taught for over 40 years he knows how to communicate and engage not only his class, but also his team. He communicates and models’ excellence in what he does promoting a collaborative working environment. Encouraging staff to promote the love of Mathematics together with the vital role that Mathematics plays in the real world through inquiry.
He has a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and a Diploma in Education from the University of Durban-Westville in South Africa. He was Head of Mathematics in South Africa before emigrating to Australia and teaching at Esperance Senior High School before John Curtin College of the Arts.

Mr Ramasarys expectation is that Mathematical study must make the students think about the world we live in. His zeal and expertise leads the department to engage student’s talents to appreciate that Mathematicians are like artists, or poets creating patterns. The patterns and solutions he inspires within classroom contexts ends in magnificence by showing students how to apply Mathematics to our ever changing world.
