Every year the Ministry of Education in Faro invites our students to take part in a cultural event called Enpar, where students from over 100 schools in the Algarve meet to exchange ideas and display their work.  Last year our students showed observers how to prepare sweet potato soup, with the help of one of our teacher's grandfathers who had grown the ingredients on his farm near Aljezur.  We would like to especially thank Orlando Soares and Lídia Ramos at Drealg for involving us in this wonderful day.
