Eva Lorincz

MIS Database Manager

 


I spent my childhood and pre-adolescent years in several different countries around the world with my family and attended Russian Embassy kindergarten, as well as elementary and high schools in Beijing and Prague, respectively. From an early age, I was immersed in a multinational, multicultural environment, which left a lasting impression on me.
As a young adult I moved to the United States, and spent 16 years living, working and studying in New York City, and have experienced that speaking a common language, such as English, could bring people with different cultural backgrounds together.

I was born and raised up in Budapest. I graduated from College of Foreign Trade (Külkereskedelmi Főiskola) in Budapest. I started my carrier in a huge trading company, I had a chance to travel around the world, experienced working with many interesting people.
After this long period of time I enjoyed another world – education, and children- working in an international school before I joined to BBIS in 2017.
I am happy being a part of this school, having relationship with the staff, parents, and the wonderful kids from almost 35 countries.


Alex Prest

Admissions Manager

 


I was born and raised in the Uk and studied Education and Performing Arts at St. Martins University Lancaster. I have been teaching in Hungary for the past 16 years, but also have a background in performance and International banking. My passion for teaching started at a young age. To watch a child make a connection and achieve success is extremely rewarding. I joined BBIS in August 2017 as a teacher, and feel blessed to be part of such an amazing team of committed people. There is a real sense of solidarity and common purpose that unite the staff and together we work to build on the solid foundations of this wonderful school.

I am very happy to have the opportunity to see a different side to school life in my new role as Admissions Manager, and to welcoming new families to our caring, school community.

In my free time I enjoy visiting the theatre, singing and practicing my golf swing.


Eva Van Schalkwyk

Operations Manager

 


I was born and raised in Hungary and studied history at PPKE BTK. After a brief job at Institute Français Budapest I decided to move to the U.K. where I have met my Cape Townian husband and settled down in London.
In the past 16 years I have spent a couple of years working in financial administration with Travelex before moving onto third sector organizations. Eventually ended up coordinating the PSS cases and a team of officers in South London’s eight boroughs as part of the Community Rehabilitation Companies contract.
I have recently moved back to Hungary, joined by my husband and two daughters.
