Letter from a past pupil

Dear Mrs Teixeira,

Hello! I was really pleased to go to school on Friday and talk to you, since we hadn't talked for a long time. Maybe you are wondering about the reason for my writing this letter to you. But the answer is easy…

Yesterday I was watching television and I suddenly remembered that on the 5th of March is your birthday, so I opened my computer and wrote a letter for you, with the main objective to wish you HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you are having a great time with your students and the other teachers and also a wonderful day, full of joy and happiness at school.

Besides that, I wanted to thank you for turning all students that have attended your school, into the people we are today. You have made us excellent people and we are all proud of that. In fact, you can also be proud of it because all of us have learnt lots of things with you, from education to English.

Finally, I would like to wish you again a Happy Birthday and tell you that all the work and time you have put into the International School, was worth it. Never ever forget that all the students you have, truly love you and the great amount of them that you will still have, also love you. The ones you saw growing up and are now at other schools or even at university, will never forget you, and the wonderful moments passed at EIM… And as Lucy Larcom once said "Whatever with the past has gone, the best is always yet to come".

With lots of love from your student,

Sofia Vasconcelos

Some of our past pupils came by to pay us a visit and participate in a Past Pupils' race, at Parque Santa Catarina.

They are ever so grown up now, but still such treasures and we are so proud of them!
