On July 30, 2021, our beloved former colleague Laurens Kruijt passed away unexpectedly. He was a history teacher at our school from 1979 to 1989. In the early 1970s, he was also a student at the Rijnlands. Together with Hans Luyendijk and Dorine van Rijssel, both of whom -like Laurens- were both students and teachers at the Rijnlands, he was the first to place his signature on the new ‘Wall of Fame’ in 2016. This is the wall on which all graduate students of the Rijnlands are allowed to sign their names. His sudden departure is a great shock to us.

We wish his next of kin much strength to deal with this loss.
