Tamir Gini and Eden Almog in their film auditions

The Grade 8 Drama class has been busy studying the audition process and how to execute it. The Story Institute led a Zoom workshop on auditions, cold reads, and securing a talent agent with the class. Students then memorized scenes from the teen sitcom “What’s Up Warthogs!” written by Julie Sagalowsky and Alex Diaz. Performing these scenes, students filmed a self-tape audition and edited their own content. They’ve been having lots of fun learning about audition equipment and how to properly film an audition tape! 

On Thursday, our Senior Foods students tried their hands at making ricotta from scratch. It’s easier than you’d think! Bring milk and cream to a low boil, add salt and lemon juice and watch the magic happen. Strain the curds and don’t lose your whey (it’s very nutritious and can be used for many things such as bread making, pasta sauces, etc.). You can have fresh, homemade ricotta within 60 minutes. It is delicious to eat when it is soft and warm after straining. Try it with a drizzle of honey and a few drops of lemon juice. Or, keep it in the fridge for later use.

Dr. Krell with daughter Shoshana and grandchildren Estie and Mattie after our 2019 Yom HaShoah Ceremony
Congratulations to King David grandparent, Dr. Robert Krell, on being appointed as a Member of the Order of Canada. The Order of Canada is one of our country’s highest achievements: presented by the Governor-General, the Order honours people whose service shapes our society, whose innovations ignite our imaginations, and whose compassion unites our communities. 

Dr. Krell was recognized for his contributions to our understanding of mass ethnopolitical violence, and for his advocacy on behalf of Holocaust survivors. He has been actively involved in our community for more than 45 years and is the founder of the Holocaust Education Centre in Vancouver. Through education and remembrance, he has made significant contributions to promoting human rights and social justice in Canada. Our students are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from him!

Kol Hakavod to his wife, Marilyn, children Simone, Howard, Shoshana, and Shawn, and grandchildren – Mattie, Estie, Leo, Julian and Davey.

Despite everything in our world that has changed, King David continues to be the same warm, challenging and vibrant high school that it has always been! We hope you are considering King David as the high school for your child next year!
