"I feel a deep and longstanding connection to SJK – first as a student between 1979 and 1985, and now as a parent who is also active with the Board of Governors. While the school has evolved immensely (it is, quite frankly, a different school in all but name), the principles of a strong community and breadth of experiences remain intact. My children’s experiences will be very different from mine, but I am confident that they will be as equally rewarding. I am grateful to be able to “give back” to SJK, doing what I can to contribute to the community, and to help perpetuate what I consider a very special place."
