“We are proud to have a South African and African record-holder in our midst. The commitment that Mr K has shown to our school as a passionate teacher and sports coach and his dedication to his athletics training in order to achieve his own personal goals is amazing. His love for his wife, toddler and his newest addition arriving in August shows the calibre of person he is. FVPS is very proud of you. Well done, Mr K,” said Shayleen Shum, principal of Forest View Primary School.
