Attending King David Sandton and Linksfield entrenched my faith in the traditions of Judaism and together with the sense of community learnt in this period play an important role in my philosophy on life.
The skills learnt both in and outside of the formal curriculum have proven invaluable in my career. I constantly felt a sense of accomplishment from the teachers that pushed me to strive to achieve more. Teachers that left a lasting impression – Mr Richie significantly enhanced my debating and public speaking career, Mrs Seftel entrenched my love for learning through reading and the English language, Mrs Goldberg and her experiments will be something that I never forget and I still reference the Lupine system of Latin translation taught by Mr Wolf.
