Teachers

Our aim is to nurture our students’ positive dispositions for thinking, working, and inter-personal development by helping them develop a solid understanding of the world around them using a multi-sensory approach. Our teachers are dedicated, curious, life-long learners. They are role models for the diversity of Jewish expression and living that we honour at the school.

What we need more than anything else is not textbooks, but text people. It is the personality of the teacher which is the text that the pupils read: the text that they will never forget.
— Abraham Joshua Heschel
