At its February meeting, the King’s Academy Board of Trustees elected Ms. Sirine Sidani Abu Ghazaleh to become a trustee, bringing the board’s size to 14 members. Abu Ghazaleh is the founder and chairwoman and organizer of the annual Les Createurs Libanais exhibition which supports the development of talented Jordanian and Lebanese artists.
Abu Ghazaleh is also the parent of two King’s students, Tara Abu Ghazaleh ’22 and Mohamad Abu Ghazaleh ’20, and has been an active member of King’s Parent Council since 2016. She is currently leading efforts to establish a new art school in Jordan which will be fully funded by her family.
“Sirine’s passion for developing the arts in Jordan echoes our own belief in the importance of the arts at King’s,” said Headmaster John Austin. “We know she will help the school further advance in that area, and we are very pleased to welcome her on board.”
Extending his own heartfelt welcome to Abu Ghazaleh, Chairman of the Board HE Bassem Al Salem added: “As an active member of the Parent Council at King’s, Sirine will no doubt continue to bring that energy and enthusiasm to her new role and will be a tremendous asset to the board of trustees.”
