August is Women’s month in South Africa, and we are proud to present a newsletter jampacked with King David women who are making their mark!
In our Teacher Feature, we introduce Mrs Renee Freedman, known not only for her contribution as a teacher and educator at King David High School Linksfield, but also as the brainchild behind the King David Rose.
In our Women’s Day supplement, entitled It’s a Woman’s World we give space to alumnae who are breaking down barriers, shattering the glass ceiling and tackling the work/home/life balance with strength and vulnerability. We are proud to claim them as ‘our own’.
We share advice from Nadia Bilchik (KDHSL 1982) on coping with stressful situations and proudly feature work taking place in the outreach space through a vegetable garden planted on the King David Victory Park campus by current matric student Jessica Blem, as well as The Kacev Family Library Project which was launched in Alexandra during March.
Read the story of a confrontation between a bully and his victim, two brave alumni from the King David Linksfield class of 1982, in the Fear & Freedom article, and enjoy news about female Davidians making headlines on the AlumNews pages.
We have successfully hosted reZOOMions for the KD Victory Park class 1972 and 1982, and the KD Linksfield class of 1982 and encourage you to diarise the dates for the upcoming King David Linksfield and Victory Park reunions so that you don’t miss out on yours!
It gives us great pleasure to share the link to the KDSF Annual Report 2021/2022 which highlights the work done by the King David Schools’ Foundation over the past financial year.
Finally, we bring you good news in our Mazeltov section on births, engagements and marriages.
Wishing all our female alumnae a very happy women’s day! We hope you enjoy this special edition.
