Dear SIS Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I relay the news of Ms. Nikmah’s passing in the early morning of Thursday, 13 September.  She died due to complications from liver cancer that was diagnosed this past summer.  Ms. Nikmah has helped to educate the children of SIS for 21 years.  Her most recent position was as a Teacher Assistant for Early Childhood 4.  I have known Ms. Nikmah both as a colleague and as a teacher for my own child.  She had a smile that instantly made children feel loved as they entered the room.  She was a great friend to her colleagues and a loving teacher to her students.  She will be missed.

She is survived by her husband Erwan, and two children, Ridwan and Yusuf.  SIS is collecting donations for her family.  You may visit Ms. Suci at the front desk to make a donation.

Kind regards,

Matthew Gaetano

Head of School
