Word from the Head of School
Marta Joyce Essinki
Head of School
École Ruban Vert
I am delighted to accept the nomination by our respected school Board, as the new Head of School of École Ruban Vert.
Many of you know me as Deputy Head of ERV since August 2018, and will share my commitment for leading the school community in a safe, happy and inspirational environment.
With my academic background as an Oxford University graduate, a Masters in Educational Leadership, and over twenty years as an educator in the UK and internationally, I am honoured for this role in a school as prestigious and ambitious as ERV.
I am excited at the prospects ahead of us, working with the dedicated team at ERV in the development of our IB international programmes and the growth of the school’s bilingualism and educational excellence. I look forward, through ERV’s Vision, Mission and Values, to continue creating for our children a holistic education that enables each and every one of them to be happy and secure individuals, as we support their growth as responsible and successful global citizens.
In particular I welcome the support as parents, in our shared partnership and communication. Together we can grow the school that we and our children are proud of, in Gabon and beyond.
I thank the ERV community for the trust and support.
