Scope and content

The Davidian Collection comprises twenty-two papers from the official school newspaper of King David High School. This Collection of papers date to the 1960's.

The Davidian went to print every month or two, and the articles covered various aspects of school life, including Matriculation results, awards, the Headmaster’s address, sports team photographs, and sports results. Being a predominantly Jewish school, King David High School was, and still is, involved in international Jewish activities. These included inter-school competitions with Herzlia and other schools, Ulpan Hebrew lessons, chess contests in Israel and Ukraine, and Final House Positions for Maccabi, Weizmann and Bar Kochba.

There were moments of tragedy in The Davidian when the newspaper printed obituaries; moments of great pride when awards and results were announced; and The Davidian also told its student, parent and teacher audience when students were being called to join the South African Army.

Whenever possible research has been conducted to enrich the information in these collections, if you would like to add any additional information please contact us.
