Last Saturday, March 5, we celebrated the “opening” (from Portuguese) of the tourism school. Students and families, teachers, Canossian nuns, pastors of the “assemblies of God”, and authorities came: the head of Suko (Makili), a representative of the administrator of the Island of Ataúro and the presidents of two important associations: Atkoma (which brings together tourism entities in Ataúro) and a pioneering NGO in ecotourism.

During the morning there were interventions by the guests of honour, songs and dances and symbolic moments. It was completed with the shared meal. It was an opportunity not only to make ourselves known, but also to see opportunities for collaboration.

For the students it was a practical opportunity to apply the “protocol” and communication, in addition to singing, of course.
