One of the greatest surprises and milestones of the year was the construction of the new Study Room at Santa Luísa de Marillac School, which cost £3.788.
Despite being in force since 2011 at the Santa Luísa de Marillac School facilities, only in 2018 we were able to provide a dedicated Study Room for this project. Now sponsored children and youngsters at Santa Luísa de Marillac School have a fit-for-purpose support area available not only to develop their academic skills, in subjects such as Portuguese and Maths, but also to develop study methods, and to have access to awareness sessions on hygiene, health, communication, professional careers, amongst others. Besides all this, during their weekly sessions, they receive a snack!
Currently, every week our monitor, Cristóvão N., welcomes and helps 154 students, 55% of them girls, from the 1st to 12th grade. We believe that increasing study support contributes significantly to the academic progress of children and youngsters!
