Pleased to Meet to You... Thomas Holmes

This week we are pleased to meet Thomas Holmes who is the Year 6 Leader

Thomas Holmes

Where are you from originally? I am originally from Kingston-Upon Thames, South of London.

Have you lived in any other countries? As a small child I lived in New Orleans while my parents did a job swap between Kingston and Loyola University so I guess I got a taste for travel early on. I spent 6 months as a volunteer teacher in a primary school in rural Kenya when I was 18 and before coming to Warsaw, I had been living in Hanoi, Vietnam for four years, working at the British International School (which is also Nord Anglia Family of schools).

Where do you study your education? I originally studied to be an archaeologist and did my BA and Masters at the University of Liverpool. When I moved back to London, I completed my post-grad in Primary Education at Roehampton University.

How long have you been at TBS? I have just started TBS, joining over the summer.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at our school?I think the children are amazing. They have a real global outlook and are aware of the bigger issues in life. This leads to some great discussions in class!

What are you most looking forward to in the 2018/2019 academic year? Year 6 go to Green Camp next week and I’m very excited to go on an action packed residential. I hear Christmas in Poland is pretty special so I’m looking forward to seeing how the school celebrates.

Whose your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why? Heinrich Schliemann: As a teenager I read Homer’s Iliad and thought it was the most exciting thing ever. Since studying Archaeology at University I learnt how archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann used a translation of the Iliad to find the site of Troy at Hissarlik, on the northwest coast of Turkey. His love of a great story lead to him uncovering fortifications, paved roads, a double gate, and a hoard of gold jewelry. It is a story I tell to any budding historian or archaeologist.

 What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw, Poland? The amazing food. Having moved from Vietnam, that has such great food, I was excited to see what Polish cuisine was like. I love the produce available in this city and the diverse range of restaurants and food shops.

What do you miss most from home?  Other than my family and friends, I would say the River Thames. I used to live right on it in Wapping, East London and spent many a Sunday walking along the banks as it cuts through the city.
