A huge Mazel Tov to Hilit Nurick and her entire Grade 10 Foods team for an outstanding event on Thursday evening! Together they created an exceptional and memorable evening. Parents, staff and community members were impressed by the menu, presentation and taste of all the dishes and found it difficult to believe that these were all created by Grade 10 students! 

"Simply a spectacular night – beautiful in every way, with great company, décor, and food prepared and served with heart and energy by our wonderful students under Hilit Nurick’s superb leadership. We had great staff and parent volunteers setting everything up and helping out in the kitchen too. Thank you to Chef Marcus Stiller and Anat Toledano for lending your skill and guidance to our kitchen crew. Just gorgeous!" 
~  Russ Klein, Head of School

"Watching the students in the kitchen was tremendous: a distinct and swirling choreography that demanded focus, collaboration, stamina, and resilience! It was very impressive to see!"
~  Wendy Oberlander, Art Teacher

#PinkShirtDay #StandUpToBullies

The story behind Pink Shirt Day is a heart-warming (and Canadian!) one that demonstrates how one person can make a difference and impact the lives of many.

For the event organized by Student Council, most students arrived wearing pink and armed with a Toonie on Wednesday, February 24. We began the day with a school-wide assembly where Izzy and Matty, Grade 12, delivered a poignant address highlighting the pain caused by bullying.

"Pink shirt day is a day about standing up to bullies, supporting our peers and preventing the negative, but here at King David we don’t just stop at preventing the negative. We go one step further. We bring the positive. This is the perfect reminder that it is always time for kindness. You never know how much a smile in the hallway can do for someone."

Matty and Izzy, Grade 12, delivered the message on behalf of Student Council.
Focused on the message presented by Student Council.

Beit Midrash Contest

We are thrilled to announce that two of our students won significant honours in RAVSAK’s recent Beit Midrash contest. Students from Jewish day schools all over North America submitted, addressing their ideas about "ahava" to three categories: Painting and Drawing, Digital Media, and 3D Media. The submissions were judged by art teachers from across North America – and King David’s own Ms. Oberlander was invited to join the jury to review elementary students’ submissions in Painting and Drawing. 

Rachel Constant won Honorable Mention for her complex and original adaptation of a popular video game to reflect part of 
the Purim story.
Gabi Rosengarten won First Place in the 3D category for her affectionate and funny take on a common feature on her dessert table.
