Editorial 35th

We wish our heart always took the bittersweet scent of purple camellias of nostalgia to the blond wheat fields of hope. The loom of time weaves its threads of painful and hopeful longing.

Celebrate the European Day of Languages with us! 20 years celebrating linguistic and cultural diversity
Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans are represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states and all are encouraged to discover more languages at any age, as part of or alongside their studies. This stems from the Council of Europe’s conviction that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent. Therefore, the Council of Europe, in Strasbourg, promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.
At the Council of Europe’s initiative, the European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September – together with the European Commission.

Erasmus+: Logo Competition

The Erasmus+ project “Summer 2050: Getting there together” aims at making people aware of climate changes as well as empowering them into taking climate action into their own hands.

One of its activities was to create a logo for the project. A contest was held and these are the awarded contestants.

Photography Competition: “Sustainable City 2021

This Photography Competition was developed between March and May 2021, within the scope of the Erasmus Project KA229 “From the Forest to the Forest through Classroom”.

The objectives were to celebrate the sustainable urban spaces; to allow students to appreciate and love nature through imagery and to inspire action to protect our natural environment and our Future. Eighteen students from the 10 and 12th grade participated. Creativity was encouraged.

Collecting disposable masks

Disposable masks are a problem to our environment. Our class decided to organise a campaign to collect masks that, otherwise, might end up on the floor. With that purpose, we built boxes and containers for students, teachers and school staff to dispose of their masks. We also made a video about the impact of the pandemic in our planet.

We thank everyone for their collaboration!

Helping the city’s dog shelter

Within the scope of the project chosen for our subject ‘citizenship education, two groups from two different classes got together to carry out a campaign with the aim of collecting goods for the Fafe animal shelter.
People quickly joined our effort and helped, bringing lots of food and other necessary products to school.
It was a remarkable experience since we were able to help animals.
We would like to thank everyone for their collaboration in helping us carrying out this campaign.

Hello there

“What a crazy world we live in!!!
I hope everyone is getting through this unpreceded time of our lives in the best way possible, and most of all with great health.
I have been teaching at Escola Secundária for more than 20 years and I love being a Secondary Grade teacher. But for the time being, I am not in school, although I miss it and am eager to return. Like someone once said… Once a teacher, always a teacher…
I know you are feeling a bit more wiggly as you become filled with anticipation over the fast-approaching holidays, but I want you to know one thing: always believe in yourself, for you are always stronger than you know.
See you!
