Head of School at SPH Pluit Village
I’m Tim Heading and I have been at SPH for 3 of my almost 30 years in education. I am originally from the beautiful city of Adelaide in South Australia. Over my 14 years in international education, I have learned to enjoy the unique situation of living in such a close and supportive Christian community. I was initially drawn to SPH by the opportunity to be involved in the exciting vision of educating this next generation of Indonesians for Christ. My hope for our amazing students is that they will seek to enthusiastically impact their world as Christians.
Head of School at SPH Kemang Village
My name is Mark Thiessen and I’m currently the Head of School at the Kemang Village campus of SPH. I have been working in education for more than 15 years, many of them serving in various leadership roles within Christian international schools. I was drawn immediately to the mission and vision of SPH and the tangible way it embodies these statements by supporting redemptive Christian education throughout Indonesia. For me, this pursuit of mission has continued to be a driving force behind my service and desire for Kemang Village to grow in excellence. I constantly hope that each of our students would recognize God’s grace in their lives.
Head of School at SPH Lippo Cikarang
I’m Helen Schleper and I am from San Jose, California. I have had the joy of spending 19 years in education and I am grateful for the opportunity to spend the past three years at SPH Lippo Cikarang. My family and I were drawn to SPH because of its mission and vision. It is a privilege to serve at a Christian school in Indonesia that proclaims that Christ redemptively restores all things for His glory. My sincere hope for students is that they will know that they are greatly loved by God as they continue to grow in true knowledge, faith in Christ, and Godly character.
SPH Executive Director
My name is Matthew Mann and I have fifteen years of experience as a Head of School and now serve as the Executive Director of Sekolah Pelita Harapan. My task is to strengthen, unite, and grow the group of five schools. At various points in my career, I have taught French and English in Kindy, Primary, Middle School, and Senior School. My vision is for SPH to raise up new generations of leaders equipped and inspired to bless their nation and the world. I believe passionately in schools as communities, places where children are loved and know that they belong, where they are challenged by their academics and enriched by their experiences.
YPPH Executive Director
My journey with the Yayasan started as early as a five-year-old, entering the doors of SPH Lippo Village’s Kindy Pod as a K2 student back in the early 90s. I consider myself privileged to engage with the Yayasan as a former student, alumni, leader, and now SPH LV mom. I started as a K2 student in SPH LV back in 1993 when the school first opened its doors. I recall my first day of school in SPH when the roads were not yet fully paved. I truly believe in SPH’s holistic Christian education because I was transformed by it myself. I hope that SPH students will be deeply transformed from the inside out – a heart that loves the Lord, a mind that has a genuine thirst for learning, and hands and feet that God uses to bless other people.
