Suspension ASA Ecology

From October 2015 we need to suspend the After School Activity Ecology during the construction period at TBS Barra. The fences and dust, the noise of the machines and the construction laborers made the space not appropriate anymore to maintain the Ecology classes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

For Nursery and Reception we have Capoeira and Judo classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 

If you have any question, please send us an email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PTA Year Representative

The PTA is excited to announce the new role of “ PTA Year Representative”  to help ensure communications are channeled effectively at the grassroots level.  A PTA Year Representative is a selected parent who is active in the PTA and will coordinate with the Turma Parent Representatives.  Year Representatives will help facilitate three-way communication between the school, teachers and parents to ensure that important PTA messages are being heard by the parents and be a conduit for parents to ask questions and raise concerns.  We hope that this level of involvement at each year level will help us motivate more parents to be actively engaged and knowledgeable about PTA and school activities and accomplishments.

Bake Sale

This year we will continue promoting our bake sale of donated treats which will extend proceeds to Casa Arte Vida and the One By One project.

You can find more information about these two NGOs at www.casaartevida.org.br and www.onebyone.org.br.
