KIS is delighted to welcome, our new Head of School Mr. Ole Bernard Sealey (OB).

OB used to work as the Head of School at the Universal American School in Dubai (UAS). Prior to joining UAS, he spent three years as the Head of Secondary at Greenfield Community School in Dubai. OB has also worked as a Middle School Vice Principal, MYP Coordinator, and has taught IB Diploma History, IB MYP Humanities, IB MYP Physical Education, and Geography.

OB is very proud of his work with the IB; he is a school evaluator, workshop leader, a former executive member of the British Columbia Association of IB World Schools, and has been involved in two global curriculum development initiatives.

As passionate as OB is about the IB, he is equally excited about the opportunities developing and school improvement, which he has done successfully in the past.

OB understands the importance of educating the whole child. He credits the foundations of his success in educational leadership to the skills he learned as a multi-sport athlete in high school. It was on the sports fields that he learned about teamwork, communication, role development, goal-setting and hard work. This knowledge helped him embark on a successful amateur rugby career where he won provincial, state and national championships on teams in Canada, Australia, and Hong Kong from 1997 to 2009. Retired from rugby, these days he enjoys playing golf with his wife, Kristi. When not at school or on the golf course, OB enjoys reading, writing, cooking, traveling and the symphony.
