"As a super proud Davidian, I have memories of the wonderful as well as the challenging experiences and opportunities afforded to me at King David School. I had the privilege of many wonderful teachers including June Barclay, Sheryl Benjamin, and a fabulous Hebrew teacher Mrs. Cohen. I particularly loved my English teacher- Mrs. Peake. What truly stands out most for me are aspects of the Informal Education programs forging my personal development and growth. These include fond memories of Mr. Ronnie Mink coaching me for the Zionist quiz, Counterpoint programs and particularly life changing were the Mountain Leadership course and the Transkei Trip with Mr. Lowry both which were foundations for my love of nature and the great outdoors".
