The Book Fair 2020 took place between March 10 and 13. This edition had as main theme The Importance of School.
The Opening Session took place on the morning of March 10, with the special guest of the writer and former Regional Secretary of Education Francisco Fernandes. The students toasted the presents with a musical and multimedia show that intended to be an ode to friendship, the importance of the school as a transmitter of values and a tribute to the guest. Finally, the illustrious guest, touched by the students’ performance, spoke about his experience in creating the books covered, some curiosities about his personal life and about the fundamental role that the school has. Finally, he answered some questions asked by the students and signed his works acquired by the students. It was a very tender and rewarding exchange for everyone.
During the afternoon of that same day, our school had the honor of receiving three great athletes from CS Marítimo and members of the technical team. In an initial phase each element introduced himself and spoke, with great sincerity, of how difficult it is to pursue a football career. For this reason it is essential to always think about alternative professions. That is why it is important to continue and value studies. The activity continued in the school field, where our students had the opportunity to play with the stars.
The Fair was open to the entire educational community, allowing contact with a wide variety of children’s books and even some copies for adults. Both students, teachers, employees, parents and other family members had the opportunity to visit the Book Fair.
