Good day Parents, Caregivers and Friends,

It has been just over a year since I accepted the privilege of leading our group with all the incidental joys and challenges. We have reached several milestones on this journey and I want to thank everyone who played their part from our staff to parents and pupils.

After much research and discussion (by our senior leaders and staff), we are now about to engage in another historic milestone for the KS Group, namely, the introduction of the ‘Thinking Schools’ teaching and learning methodology; and a consequence, each of our schools will become a Thinking School. So what is a Thinking School? I will attempt to elucidate with the following.

Let me start off by stating how excited and motivated I am to be joining this wonderful group of schools comprised of  the committed team of academic and support staff, special  pupils and parents that make it all up.

I step into very capable and experienced shoes in the form of the acting CEO, Safeea Rahiman. The short time spent with Safeea prior to her departure exposed me to her eloquent and professional demeanor and her deep insight into the world of academics and Kyalami Schools’ specific issues. Safeea achieved a great deal in a short space of time and behalf of all involved in the group I thank her deeply for the devoted time, effort and contribution she has made to both the schools and to me personally.
