Learning does not occur when we teach. Learning happens when we explore.

Filipa Mateus

I was born and raised in the diverse and beautiful country that is South Africa. I have an Honours degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, specialising in English Education as well as an Advanced Diploma in Remedial Education from the University of Johannesburg.

I am an enthusiastic teacher who aims to inspire all pupils to develop a love and curiosity towards their education. Creating life-long learners who aspire to produce change in our world.

Mahalakshmi Sampath 

Greetings, pals! I’m Mahalakshmi Sampath, and you can refer to me as Mily. Originally from Chennai India, I have been residing in the Netherlands for the past five years.

My passion lies in collaborating with kids and educators, and I’ve had wonderful experiences working in diverse educational environments.

When I am not busy, you’ll find me engrossed in books or hiking outdoors. Agatha Christie novels are my ultimate literary favourites, and “Sound of Music” takes the top spot as my all-time beloved movie. The anticipation of joining you all as the Group 6 teaching assistant this year fills me with joy, and I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you very soon!
