É por isso, que ansiamos fazer parte e colaborar na Década para a Biodiversidade da UN.

We’re a fairly recent school since we’ve only opened two years ago. Nonetheless, we’re committed in changing the way that our community addresses environmental issues. So, we made Environmental Education one of the corner stones of our educational project. We’re making an effort to educate our students to be more aware, aiming to raise them to be complete and functional citizens who are actively involved in the discussion of environmental issues and committed on solving them. For that we develop a year round of environment related activities intended to alert, sensitise and involve each and every one of our students.
