PORT HOPE, ONTARIO, CANADA – June 25, 2018 – Trinity College School (TCS) is one of North America’s most respected boarding schools and boasts strong ties to the Cayman Islands. With an impressive contingent of Caymanians having attended the School, TCS is proud to announce that its incoming Head Prefect for the 2018-2019 academic year will be Cayman Islands’ own, Miss Zororo Mutomba.

The Head Prefect position is the most prestigious student leadership position at TCS with one male and one female graduating student selected to hold the position by student and faculty vote each year. Cayman Islands resident Zororo Mutomba will hold this top position at the School for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year.

Zororo feels very honoured to have been chosen to be a Head Prefect at Trinity College School and is excited and optimistic for the upcoming school year. As for her goals for the year ahead, Zororo is looking forward to working with her fellow prefects and plans to ensure that all students, new and returning, continue to feel welcomed into the TCS community.

Zororo is the daughter of Mr. Yoshneck and Mrs. Emma Mutomba. Born in Zimbabwe but a resident of Cayman since she was a young girl, Zororo is an outstanding combination of scholar, athlete and leader. She has played on the School’s Bigside basketball and rugby teams and is known for her spoken poetry performed at many talent nights held on campus.

In celebration of Trinity College School’s sesquicentennial in 2015 and with the support of donors, the Cayman Islands Scholarship was introduced and Zororo was selected as the first recipient. This merit-based scholarship includes full tuition (including boarding) for the duration of the student’s studies at TCS. Reflecting on her time at TCS, Zororo says, “I am so fortunate to have received the Cayman Islands Scholarship because without it I would not have attended TCS and had the opportunities I have had here. I have played sports I’ve never thought of playing, like basketball and rugby, and I have enjoyed them all. I have made friendships I know will last a long time with my fellow peers, I have found mentors in different teachers and the overwhelming amount of support at TCS has helped me better myself academically. I would not trade the time I have had at TCS for anything and that is why I am so grateful to have received this scholarship.”

This fall, Trinity College School will be looking for a new Cayman Islands Scholarship recipient for the 2019-2020 school year. Interested Caymanian residents should contact the School’s admissions office at [email protected]<mailto:ad[email protected]>.

Trinity College School is becoming the leading Canadian boarding school for Cayman students, building on a tradition that dates back to the early 1980s when the first Cayman students came to the School. Today, the TCS Cayman Branch includes more than 100 alumni, students, and past and current parents, with 17 students currently enrolled at the School.
