hamakom - Kol Chai joint Religion School

Profile of our Head Teachers

Toria Bacon (Landau), on left, has been working at HaMakom since its creation and for several years before that when Kol Chai and HEMS were based at Grimsdyke.

Toria spent four years living in Israel and learning Hebrew and another two years living in sunny Vancouver, before settling in her forever home in Bushey with her new husband and her two handsome sons.  Except for her years working in a dairy farm in Israel, Toria’s career was mainly in the area of training for Royal Bank of Scotland.  She also set up and ran a local NatWest training academy before leaving to concentrate on raising her family.

Not only do our co-Heads, Viki and Toria, fit together perfectly name-wise but, since starting working together, they have discovered that their husbands were the best of friends during their teenage years!  Unfortunately, they lost touch and have only recently met up again, for the first time in over 30 years, due to Toria and Viki’s working relationship and are re-establishing a beautiful new friendship.

Viki Kenton, on right, is one of the two co-heads of HaMakom.  Originally from Wolverhampton, in the depths of the West Midlands, she moved to London at 18 to attend university, train to be a teacher and see the sights.

She has since had many years of teaching experience, the majority of those spent in a leadership role, working as the Foundation Stage Co-ordinator for a large primary school in Hackney, as well as Lead Practitioner for the rest of the borough.

Today, Viki lives in Bushey, with a husband, two daughters and a cat called Monkey, and is thoroughly enjoying the experience of working with the fabulous children and staff of HaMakom.
