We are very sorry to learn that one of our former KG2 teachers, Christine Chauveau, passed away recently. The team that knew Christine wanted to share a message of their memories of her, and the SISD community also wish to pass on our condolences to the family.
Amina El Difrawi – Head of Early Years
A few days ago, we heard the very sad news that a former member of SISD and of the Early Years team passed away. I first met Christine Chauveau in my role as a French coordinator and as her son’s Karl teacher. She was passionate about the French teaching and was enthusiastic about the bilingual co-teaching model in KG2. She worked hard to improve it and made sure the students get the best experience. She was looking forward to continuing working in the Early Years so “we could do great things together for French” as she used to say. I can still hear her singing voice and see her big smile.
Unfortunately, she had to leave to go back to her home country. We will always remember her as a happy and passionate teacher. We would like to send her family and especially her son Karl our warmest condolences and courage in those difficult moment.

I met Christine in August 2017. She was teaching French in early years while I was teaching in primary. We were neighbors as well; our sons were in the same class and quickly we became friends. I remember Christine as someone funny, who likes to laugh and enjoys simple things in life. Christine was discrete but we could always count on her. She will truly be missed. Our hearts go out to her family, especially her son Karl, in this ordeal.
Tamara Grannell Grade 1 Teacher
In the academic year of 2017, I started SISD with Christine and together we helped to introduce the bilingual French and English stream. Christine was a passionate French teacher, going over and above to ensure her students were emersed in the French language. Christine was funny, active and loved by all.
Christine will be truly missed, and we have her son Karl in all of our thoughts and prayers.
The whole SISD team has been working hard to ensure that your children are healthy and safe in the school for their return after the summer break.
