Welcome our new project partner! A new QUIZ for you

We are very happy and proud to announce our new project partner!
It's a wonderful, talented group of students from Portugal with their creative teacher, Ms Anabela Brígida. Their school is called Agrupamento Vertical Fernando Casimiro Pereira da Silva. It is located in Rio Maior, Portugal.
