“I was privileged that my parents afforded me the opportunity of attending King David Linksfield, a school synonymous with academic excellence, and a diverse range of sports and cultural options - offering something for every student. At King David’s core is friendship, unity and a special KD ruach that I’ll always carry with me. Through role-models such as Mr Block and Mr Mink, King David instilled in me Jewish values, and a love for Judaism and Israel. Mrs Freedman, Mrs Benjamin and Mr Kaplan were expert teachers in their subjects, and taught me the power of believing in your students - it gives them the confidence to follow their dreams. Mr Ricci and Mrs Seftel showed me that if one’s job is their passion this is what truly inspires others! And Mr Wolf, a real gentleman, ‘mensch’ and a superb leader, you teach integrity through everything you do”.
