We at Kimberley Boys’ High School are shattered by the untimely and shocking passing of gallant examples of dedicated members of the teaching fraternity. The deaths of Allan King and Mervyn Solomon within such a short space of time of each other have a numbing effect, to say the least. Having shared classrooms and the staffroom with both here at Kimberley Boys’ High School, we share in the deep sorrow of losing both teachers in this fashion. We understand how it must affect the CBC family in many ways not superficial.
Both teachers were at home here and at CBC, moving from one school to the other, and all over again! The quality of drama and music that Mervyn Solomon magically cajoled out of the boys has led many to become acclaimed artists around the world. They too share in the bleakness of this moment. Allan King was loved by learners and teachers alike. His commitment to, and love for the learners under his care endeared him to many who are equally heartbroken.
We pray for Mervyn and Allan’s families at this difficult time. May their loved ones’ dear departed souls rest in eternal peace.
Our sincere prayers and thoughts are with them and the CBC family.
With our deepest sympathy,
X. TABA HEADMASTER
