Estoi School Presentation - September 2013

 Estoi Rotary Supports Local School




During September, Rotary Club Estoi Palace International resumed its programmes to support E. B. 2,3 Poeta Emiliano Costa in Estoi. Continuing a project begun last year, Portuguese/English dictionaries were presented by Youth Service Committee members Pauline Burnham and Daniel Silva to Librarian Ana Luísa Melão in preparation for the start of the new academic year in mid-month. The dictionaries will be donated to 42 incoming 5th year students who have been identified as needing financial assistance for the purchase of school books.







Later in the month, Daniel Silva presented Certificates of Academic Excellence to two students as part of the annual awards ceremony at the Cinema Ossónoba.  Catarina Brenner da Silva and Teresa Isabel Fonseca Inácio Pinto Gago completed their studies at the Estoi school to a very high standard and have now matriculated to the high school in Faro for further studies.  Their academic progress will be monitored for possible participation in other Rotary projects.




Rotary Club Estoi Palace International is a diverse club with members of 10 nationalities and holds its weekly lunch meeting at the Estoi Palace Pousada.  For more information about the club and its projects, contact
