Distinguished guests, students and teachers gathered last Wednesday to celebrate the renaming of The Kantor King Solomon High School.
The Jewish secondary school in Forest Road, Barkingside was formally renamed after Dr Moshe Kantor, the president of the European Jewish Congress, which represents the religious community across Europe.
Headteacher Matthew Slater said that the president’s support was vital to the school’s success,
He said: “Dr Kantor’s involvement will enable the school to continue on its journey of improving the educational opportunities for children in East London and South Essex and provide a first class Jewish education for future generations,”
“The interest and the support he has shown in our school has given the entire community a boost in confidence.”
