I am delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Krishanthan Anthonydas as Vice Principal of Trinity College. Following an extensive Recruitment and Interview process, the Board of Governors originally appointed him as Vice Principal Designate earlier in the year. However, he now takes over from Mr J D Wilson, who resigned from the post of Vice Principal in August.
A degree holder in English, Education and Philosophy, Mr Anthonydas will already be well known to many in the Trinity community. He first taught at the school from 2004-2008, during which time he was Housemaster of Napier House and Ireland Jones as well as, latterly, Headmaster of the Middle School. He was also MIC of the U15 Cricket and U18 Rugby teams.
Mr Anthonydas then spent nine years as a Senior member of the academic staff at Holy Cross Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Salem in India. However, in May 2018, he moved back to Trinity, initially as Head of Co-curricular activities and then as Upper School Headmaster.
I would personally like to thank Shaw Wilson for all that he has done for Trinity during his two years as Vice Principal; and for the support he has given me throughout that time. His hard work, passion for discipline and commitment have been obvious to everyone. But what some have not perhaps seen so much (though I have appreciated greatly) are his sensitivity, his generosity of spirit and his excellent sense of humour. Shaw is a remarkable man whom I will miss very much.
That having been said, I believe that the Board of Governors has made a very wise choice in their appointment of Krishanthan Anthonydas as the next Vice Principal. I have been so impressed by his calm, sensible, non-confrontational and well-balanced approach since he returned to Trinity. He’s quickly earned the respect of both staff and students and I know he will work tirelessly with me and all members of the school community for the betterment of Trinity. Hopefully, in time, Krishanthan will become one of the great Trinity Vice Principals. As he begins, I ask all members of the Trinity family to support him and pray for him and his family.
