Dina was invited to spend a week in September, 2022 in St. Julian’s School, which is a unique bilingual context full of history. She had the opportunity to gain insights from the leadership team, teachers, parents, governors and students of different ages. Dina also delivered sessions for teachers, school leaders, parents and governors focusing on cognitive benefits of bilingualism.

A mutually inspiring week of this partnership finished with a whole school session with 200 teachers and the leadership team. Dina would like to especially thank Dra. Maria de Lurdes Faria e Silva, the Principal of Portuguese Section, for the invite and organisation and to all staff and students for a warm welcome, enthusiasm and contributions.
