KIS Giving

Preparing the 2009-2010 Annual Fund brochure this month required some thoughtful reflection about all that KIS stands for. Many things came to mind….choices, tradition, opportunities and community, are a few. The most outstanding quality of Kodaikanal International School, in my mind, is COMMUNITY. The commitment of staff and students to one another intellectually, emotionally and spiritually shone bright and clear in the face of tragedy this month. The sense of community is undeniable, but Aalim Javeri, incoming Studco President said it most honestly when he spoke at Keon Hee’s memorial service, “we are not just a community, we are FAMILY.”
