In our final newsletter of 2022, we are delighted to feature many of the exciting events that have taken place over the last few months:
We include a wrap-up of the year by Raelene Tradonsky, Executive Director of the KDSF, and proudly showcase the upgrades that have taken place on our campuses over the past year.
In our Teacher Feature, we introduce Dr Marilynn Dunn-Bernstein who is fondly remembered as a nurturing and dedicated teacher, head of form, head of department and vice principal at King David High School Victory Park from the mid 1970’s – mid 1990’s.
The King David Schools’ Foundation takes vicarious pride in our alumni, and in this edition, we are honoured to feature two successful entrepreneurs:Richard Rayne (KDHSL 1996), the CEO and founder of iLearn, and Dov Girnun (also of KDHSL 1996), founder of Merchant Capital. We also proudly feature alumni who are making headlines in the Alumnews section.
We showcase three projects that have been funded by the KDSF; the iheart programme that was introduced in our schools in response to the concerning trend of increased anxiety and depression in schools post Covid; the Partnership Programmes which King David Primary Linksfield has participated in with their partner schools; and The Yards, the latest upgrade to King David High School Linksfield that is revolutionising traditional learning spaces!
We successfully hosted reZOOMions and for the first time since Covid, we were finally able to hold reunions on campus again! We encourage you to diarise the dates for the upcoming reunions so that you don’t miss out on yours!
Finally, we feature good news in our Mazeltovs section on births, engagements and marriages.
As the school year draws to a close, we wish you a wonderful holiday, Chag Chanukkah Sameach and everything of the best for 2023!
The KDSF Team
