Colm McDermott, Principal at Aga Khan Academy Maputo sheds light on the new academy and teachingFor Colm McDermott, there’s no such thing as a typical day – and he likes that. He finds satisfaction in work that involves interaction with children and an unpredictable day.

Colm is the Junior School Principal at the Aga Khan Academy, Maputo. Previously, he held similar positions at two other International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme schools in São Paulo, Brazil and Luanda, Angola.

“It’s not like you sit in the office and do the same thing every day,” he said. “You have no idea what the children are going to bring because they respond differently, and they have such a unique view of the world that you’re constantly learning from them.”

As a principal in Brazil, Colm helped start a school and take it through the IB authorisation process. After seeing an opening at the Academies, he decided that the Academy in Mozambique would be something he’d really enjoy being a part of. He was impressed with the mission and the vision behind the network of Aga Khan Academies.
