At Westway we're deeply saddened to learn that Father Kidane passed away on Sunday 31 January 2021.

Father Kidane was a founding  member of the RBKC Supplementary Schools Partnership. He was the Director of Gheez Rite Supplementary School since it was established in 1993. The school teaches students aged 4 -15 Tigrinya (language spoken in Eritrea), English, Mathematics and has sports activities.

He was much loved by the Eritrean community who he served for over 27 years and will be hugely missed.

Val Patterson, Westway Trust Learning Services Associate Director said "His genial personality at our partnership meetings was always very welcome and he had the knack of seeing the funny side of life. When he came to the office we were always able to laugh together.
Over the next few months we will have to think of a suitable way to commemorate his wonderful life."
