Passing of KGMS Founder Anne Rushforth

We are so sorry to inform you that the founder of our school has died.  Forty years ago, Anne Rushforth took the first step in establishing a school that met the needs of children like our own. A registered nurse by training, she immersed herself in what was then known about how children like ours learn.  From the start, she emphasized a phonics based reading program, the use of multi-sensory techniques, daily one-on-one tutoring and the development of self-confidence.  As you know, these are core to the school’s learning environment today.

Recently, Anne was the subject of a video in honour of our school’s fortieth year.  It was screened at our recent Gala and can be viewed below.
