Principal's Message

Principal, Corey Stixrud, addressing the parents and students

A warm welcome from Kodai! We are in the midst of an exciting new semester at KIS. There is a wonderful energy on campus, and student involvement in activities, clubs, service learning, student council, hiking, and athletics is at an extremely high level. I am impressed with our new students and how in the space of a month they have seemed to integrate so quickly into the KIS way of life! I am particularly pleased to welcome two new members to our senior management team: Our new Vice Principal, Liliana Gomez, along with her husband Gustavo, have joined us from Colombia. Ms. Gomez brings a wealth of experience in educational systems and processes. Our new Dean of Residential Life, Joanne Stockbridge, is an educational psychologist from Scotland with a deep understanding of student issues as well as institutional management. Her husband David is joining us as the new Personal Counselor. Liliana and Joanne have already made huge contributions to our Kodai community and have connected so well to our staff and students. Needless to say, we are so glad to have them on board!

Alumni Weekend Reunion 2014

The alumni reunion was well attended by two classes celebrating their milestone anniversary. The activities started on Friday 8th, August with a campus tour after which we had lunch with the elementary school kids. This was followed by a meeting with grade 12 students. The students had the opportunity to meet and interact with well-seasoned alumni with varied experiences in medicine, finance, education, ICT, Engineering among others.

In the evening, the Principal hosted a Dinner for the Alumni at his residence. At the Dinner, an alumni meeting was held to discuss issues concerning alumni and the way forward. The Principal bid them to share ideas, comments and concerns.  The gathering was also given a report about happenings at the Alumni office in the past year. The report is posted on the alumni Portal (http://alumni.kis.in/). The Dinner was climaxed with a special rendition from Beatles album performed by KIS Chamber Singers Choir. It was a great thrill for alumni as they did not expect such a big treat. Our thanks goes to Dr. and Mrs. Vancil and the students.
