Dr Henry Niit 

Dr Henry NiitWe at Selborne College are greatly saddened to announce the loss of our esteemed colleague, educator and friend. We bid farewell to Dr Henry Niit who passed away suddenly yesterday morning after he suffered a heart attack.

Dr Niit has been a staff member at Selborne College since 1982 and has inspired the lives of many young men over the years. Henry was a Head of Department and an integral member of the school’s management team. His experience and the wisdom he provided will be treasured. He was well respected by both boys and colleagues. There is no doubt that his great sense of humour, his passion and dedication to our school and to his students will be missed. His willingness to always assist when necessary and to be a mentor to many staff members has been an absolute blessing. The Technology and Engineering, Graphics and Design Departments will certainly miss his precision and enthusiasm for those subjects. Dr Niit had a passion for middle distance running and has over the many years made significant contributions to the development of the Selborne College Cross Country and Athletics Teams and more recently the Pole Vaulters.

At this time it is challenging to bid farewell, particularly with Founders’ Day just around the corner, as this was Dr Niit’s most favourite time of the year. As the Officer in Command of the Selborne College Cadet Corps as well as the Master in Charge of A company, Dr Niit found this time of the school calendar his most memorable and most eagerly awaited occasion. This year was no different. Dr Niit was an extraordinary person and will truly be a great loss to our community as a whole. He will be missed by everyone whose lives he has touched over the last few decades.

We pass on our sincere condolences and sympathies to the Niit family: wife Hanri, daughters Mingi and Inke, and son Artur, as they come to terms with their sudden and unexpected loss. We at Selborne College share your deep sadness and extend our thoughts and prayers to you as we all try to find comfort at this time.

God Bless and may Henry rest in Peace.
