Caymanian students honoured with leadership positions at top Canadia boarding school

TCSCaymanstudentleadersTrinity College School (TCS) is one of North America’s oldest and most respected boarding schools and boasts strong ties to Cayman that stretch back several decades. With an impressive contingent of Caymanians having attended the School, TCS is now proud to announce that several Caymanian students have been appointed to leadership roles at the School.
Student leadership at TCS is distributed amongst six boarding houses and four day houses. Each year, students are nominated to the prestigious appointment as “Head of House”. For the 2016-2017 academic year, Cayman’s own Jazz Pitcairn and Ryan Kirkaldy will serve as Head of House for their respective boarding houses. In addition to this, Drew Lerikos, also from Cayman, has been appointed Peer Counsellor, which is a key student support role in boarding houses. According to Headmaster Stuart Grainger, “Jazz, Ryan and Drew are all outstanding students and members of the TCS community. Having Caymanians leading two out of our six boarding houses is a testimony to the strong links between TCS and Cayman.”
Since 1992, TCS has offered a full-tuition, merit-based scholarship to Cayman students called the Donald F. Hunter Scholarship. There have been 11 recipients over the last 23 years; well-known islander, Samantha Widmer, was one such recipient, as well as Jacqueline Eberts, Carol Phelps, Praveen Alla, Krishan Welcome, Krista McCoy, Abali Hoilett, Chelsea Smith, Tracey Forbes, Joe Roberts and Cameron McWatt. With the Hunter Scholarship concluding last year, Trinity College School extended its commitment with a new full-tuition scholarship opportunity for future promising Cayman Island students, which was awarded to Zororo Mutomba.
There is an impressive and growing TCS community in the Cayman Islands including over 100 alumni, students, past and current parents. The first students from Cayman came to the School in the early 1980s, and as Trinity College School celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015, it is becoming the leading Canadian boarding school for Cayman families with 18 students from the island currently attending the School.
