Newsletter - April 2024

In our first newsletter of 2024, we are delighted to feature many of the exciting events that have taken place over the last few months.

As we settle into the new school year, we acknowledge that it’s not only the teachers who play a role in ensuring happy students. In our Teacher Feature, we are delighted to feature Eida Schneiderman, who was the front office “face” of King David High School Victory Park for 37 years! 

The King David Schools’ Foundation takes vicarious pride in our alumni, and in this edition, we are honoured to feature Dynamic Davidian, Jason Cohen (KDHSL 1993), Dean of the Faculty of Commerce at WITS University.

We are extremely proud of the outstanding matric results of the King David Class of 2023, featured in this newsletter, and celebrate that we are recognised as one of WITS University’s top feeder schools.

We share feedback and photos from the final leg of our World Tuckshop Tour in Melbourne and Sydney, where we were able to celebrate 75 years of King David Schools with our Australian alumni.

We offer you the opportunity to win a holiday of a lifetime at Dulini Leadwood in the Sabi Sand Reserve, valued at R630000 (US$ 35 000)! Time is running out to enter, as the competition ends on 16th April!

We are constantly upgrading our facilities to ensure 21st century learning, for educational best-practice in a rapidly changing world. See the article on The Studios at King David High School Linksfield for more detail.

A core value of a King David education is community, and students are therefore encouraged to make the world a better place. Partnership Programmes are part of everyday learning and in this newsletter, we feature three partnership programmes generously funded by donors to the KDSF.

Read about the KDVP class of 1974 ReZOOMion and diarise the dates for the upcoming 2024 ReZOOMions so that you don’t miss out on your school reunion!

Finally, we are happy to celebrate with our Davidian family in our Mazeltovsection on births, engagements and marriages.

We continue to pray for peace in our beloved homeland, and the immediate release of the hostages. 3
