School achievement

The Rotary Club Praia da Rocha awarded 500 euros to a secondary school pupil from Portimão this month for her academic achievements.

Thirteen year old Letícia de Oliveira Verissimo, from the Engenheiro Nuno Mergulhão secondary school in Portimão, was awarded the prize by the President of the club Bernhard Schluender at a festive dinner at Hotel Algarve Casino on May 12.

The speaker of the evening was Professor José Alberto Quaresma, who stressed the importance of education beginning at home with parents and not only in school.
