I am Lynette du Toit, the principal of ACUDEO College Thornview Primary. I am very passionate about education and am very happy that my career parth in education brought me to the exciting role of leading and managing this school. I believe in establishing systems that are reliable, efficient and effective in allowing our staff and learners to leverage all the opportunities for learning that a school offers. These include systems for keeping learners from being excluded from leaerning and growing or as we say falling through the cracks, systems for helping teachers grow professionally, and systems for dealing with the challenging dynamics that inevitably arise in a place filled with hundreds of complex, wonderful hearts and minds.
My teaching career started in 1998 as a secretary in Hoërskool Pretoria-Wes. Whilst studying to become a teacher, I was given the opportunity to teach at the school. In 2005 I accepted a teaching post at Hoërskool Tuine. In 2011 I was promoted to Subject Facilitator in Afrikaans in the Tshwane-West District. At the beginning of 2018 I was appointed as the Deputy Principal at ACUDEO College Kirkney and later that same year the management of the group offered me the position of Principal ACUDEO College Thornview Primary – a dream come true!
I am very proud to be the Principal of an excellent school with strong roots in developing the children we all care so deeply about. I look forward to partner with all our stakeholders on this exciting journey.
