When we arrived to Santa Luísa de Marillac School, in Manjangue, we were impressed with the amount and quality of books available in the library! They were so many and so well organised that we immediately accepted the challenge of reorganizing the room to make it more appealing, and easy to use by the students and teachers.
After the work done in the library we can now find specific sections adequately identified: textbooks, literacy manuals, themed books, Portuguese and English fiction, magazines, children’s books, games, jigsaws and even an encyclopaedia! We also have a board, a television and several educational videos.
It is in this spacious and naturally lit room that the school runs literacy classes for adults, as well as, with the support of our charity, after-school support classes directed at the UPG Portugal sponsored children.
Promoting reading habits is crucial for children and youngsters’ education. With this new look and organization the teachers will be able to.
