The word ‘Kesher’ comes from the Hebrew word, Lehitkasher – to make a connection, and that is exactly the purpose of the school Kesher programme. Each Year 7 student has been assigned a student in Year 12 to make a connection with. Each Kesher is there to support “their” Year 7 with the transition into secondary school; to provide guidance and help with any questions they might have.
Our Year 12’s created a reception line to welcome the Year 7’s as they arrived from their lessons into the school hall. Immediately, a buzz of excited conversations began, and it was wonderful to see the students make instant bonds.
This special Hasmonean tradition has led to lifelong friendships throughout our community, and we are delighted to continue it.
