Gaby Velthuijs-Frick, our much-loved colleague and teacher of French in the international school passed away today, 11 July 2020, after a short battle with cancer.
Gaby joined the Maartenscollege in 2012, as teacher of French in both the Dutch section of the school as well as the international school. She very quickly adapted to the international baccalaureate way of teaching and so inspired began to gain new qualifications to enable her to teach in the diploma programme. Gaby was an inspirational teacher. Of course, she loved all things French and made sure that her love for her language and culture was part of her teaching and her presence in the school.
Gaby will be dearly missed by all members of the school community.
