Farone Eckstein – Principal
Learning is the core business of an excellent school. Learning is not only about subject knowledge; it’s a holistic life experience. Trinityhouse High School most certainly offers its pupils excellence.
We take great pride in our school and the exceptional achievements of all our children. We offer a top class education including all the academic, cultural and sporting...
prerequisites an independent school must have in South Africa today.
Our strong Christian values and principles influence all aspects of the school, the curriculum, the learning environment, the ethos and the way that everyone is included and how they relate to each other. We are therefore a school with a strong sense of direction and moral purpose.
At Trinityhouse we set consistently high expectations of pupils’ achievements, attendance and behaviour. Our use of praise is well judged and discriminating. It targets the personal achievements of individual children as well as groups and teams. Our pupils are continually motivated by it.
Our school is a welcoming school. We actively encourage parents to participate in their children’s education. We firmly believe that education at this school is a triangle between school, parents and the child. In many ways Trinityhouse can be classified as a traditional independent school. Our pupils take great pride in their school and celebrate this pride in many excellent traditions throughout the year.
Trinityhouse is everything a parent would expect from a top class independent school. It is truly “Education beyond Expectation”
A school that does not manage and limit its assessment strategy carefully can cause pupils to experience undue stress and pressure. Our pupils write cycle tests in term one and three only – and only...
two per week for a limited set of weeks in that term. We issue reports at the end of each of our three terms and have a contact week with parents in the middle of the term.
Our pupils and our staff are passionate about our extra-mural offering at Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge. We offer a wide range of outreach and community service based clubs, music school, drama and major productions and are...
very competitive in all of sports we offer. None of the extra-mural activities we offer are compulsory as we are in the fortunate position that our pupils naturally want to participate in the activities we offer.

A progressive system of discipline is followed. Pupils that make themselves guilty of minor offences are managed by the teachers in the classroom. For multiple transgressions a detention may be recommended. Very serious transgressions may...
be dealt with by the school calling for a disciplinary enquiry. Compassion and consistency is the key to our discipline system.
The Trinity Singers is the award winning choir of Trinityhouse High School, an independent Christian School in Johannesburg, South Africa. Riaan Vorster, the current Director of Music of the school, founded the choir in 2006....
The choir upholds and enriches the Christian foundation of the school and keeps the sounds of all ancient and modern musicians alive by maintaining an all-encompassing repertoire. Choristers are exposed to music ranging from the middle ages and the renaissance to modern works, including sacred, secular and traditional folk compositions. Being a member of the choir instils, develops and enhances cultural awareness, mutual respect, self-discipline and a love for music by direct exposure to the youth choir art form. These goals are achieved through dedication, hard work and a commitment to excellence. Members of the Trinity Singers have the opportunity to experience the thrill of singing in a professional youth choir and being part of once in a lifetime productions and tours.
Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge has a Parents Association which has been active for the last twelve years. It was established to facilitate all the schools on the campus to essentially provide the “nice to haves” without...
having to increase school fees. When ADVTECH acquired the school the same principles essentially applied as in any business you have capex and budgeting constraints. The association is a small body of parents who meet once a term with the Headmasters of all three schools to discuss events happening at the school as well as plan fundraisers and enhancements to the school. They also try to create an environment and organize fundraisers which further enhance the Christian ethos at the school. As children
leave the High School, so do those parents, resulting in a body that certainly needs not only “new blood”, but more feet to accomplish the tasks.
All monies raised immediately return to the school to make it the awesome place it is.
