During the first day, the Portuguese teachers and students welcomed the rest of the partners at school. All the participants of the project wanted to leave the image of our project and its symbolism on the walls of the school by drawing a dove in a wall painting activity.
As you can see, the final result was a fantastic masterpiece!
Previous to the presentations the students of the school offered us some musical and theatre performances.
After that, Mr. Armando Barreiro, the headmaster, together with other local authorities from Madeira and representatives of different organizations welcomed officially all the partners involved in the project. Then, the students began with the different presentations.
