We held a tree planting ceremony on 19 June 2020 to commemorate Dr Robert Sunderland (1946 – 2019), a much loved CSS colleague who passed away late last year.
A number of board members, teachers, parents and alumni shared their stories about how Dr Sunderland had positively influenced them over the years.
Dr Sunderland joined CSS in September 2008. He had been a School Principal in many parts of the world, and came to help CSS become authorised as an IB World School. As a school leader he took on many roles – Head of Science, IB Diploma Coordinator, ToK Coordinator, Head of Upper School – and mentored other colleagues to step into these roles after him. He was a brilliant teacher of Physics & ToK, a passionate IB educator and a member of Bauhinia House. He served as staff representative on the CSS Board of Directors. After his distinguished service, he retired in 2013. He will be well remembered with fondness and gratitude.
