It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to Mr Christo de Wit, our headmaster of six years. But, it is also with great joy that we wish him every success as he continues to climb his career ladder.
In the many tributes which were paid to Mr de Wit over the last few days, a common theme has emerged. Words such as “visionary”, “insightful”, “compassionate”, “considerate”, “selfless” and “unsung hero” were all used to describe a man who did everything in his power to ensure that the name of Trinityhouse was held high. And he would never ask for the credit! When Mr de Wit became the headmaster of our school, he certainly had some very big shoes to fill and many people watched with bated breath to see whether he was going to be able to do this. Well, he most certainly did – and then some! Under Mr de Wit’s leadership, the school has grown and prospered and so many more opportunities have been afforded to the pupils as a result of Mr de Wit’s passion for promoting the holistic development of each child who walks through our corridors.
The hockey Astro Turf, the Trinityhouse Music School, the Marimba Band, the String Ensemble and the Trinity Singers Girls Choir are just a few of the innovations this visionary introduced to our school.
His staff were ever appreciative of the fact that he gave equal attention to every aspect of the school, be it academics, sport, culturals or outreach. No single activity was more important than the others.
We wish Mr de Wit God’s richest blessings as he takes on this new challenge and we have no doubt that he will be an asset to the Centurus Group.
