Aver-o-Mar school awarded with HEALTHY SCHOOL LABEL 2023/25

By | Board, Highlights, Board, Highlights, Highlights | No Comments

At the beginning of a new school year, it was with great pleasure that our Aver-o-Mar School Group received the news on 21 September that one Primary School “was the winner of the Healthy School Label 2023/25”, thus renewing a distinction it had already held since 2021.


The application for this Label is based on health inclusion practices, including actions associated with the prevention of all forms of violence, healthy eating and food choices, affective-sexual behaviour, as well as actions that address issues such as the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, illicit psychoactive substances and the use of screens, dating violence, gender identity, sexual orientation, without neglecting the practice of physical activity and the fight against all forms of bullying and cyberbullying.


The project assesses the school’s wellbeing policies, its physical and social environment, health competences and the health of teaching and non-teaching staff (literacy and wellbeing), as well as community ties.


Excerpt from the email received on 21.09.2023 from the Directorate-Gener


“Respected  Principal


Accept my best wishes first of all

The work that your school has been doing under your leadership has once again paid off! We are pleased to inform you that your school has won the Healthy School Label 2023/25.


SCHOOL MATERIALS: you’ll find everything you need in your school stationery shop!

By | Board, Highlights, Board, Highlights | No Comments

As in previous years, the Aver-o-Mar School Group’s stationery shop, located in the main school, has a wide variety of materials at low prices, considering that the school’s aim is to provide a service that responds to students’ everyday needs, depending on the subjects they will be attending.

In addition to the usual and common material at the beginning of the year, there will be specific material for some subjects, and the school has the capacity to respond to this, always at very interesting prices, as can be seen in the current price list (see final link).

In this sense, we would like to urge you to use the service available to the school’s students, from any year of schooling, as the school has a CAE-Education, which means that expenses incurred here are automatically reported to the tax office for IRS purposes as Education.

See the current price list:

By | Highlights, Highlights, Highlights | No Comments

It is true that classes are over and that, before thinking about the next school year, we are getting some rest and recharging our batteries to face a new year, but we have to take a break  to let you know about another award for our school group!

That’s right, this time, with everyone’s help, we achieved the worthy 3rd place, at national level, in the Eco-Code Facebook Poster competition | Eco-Schools Virtual Community 2022/23, with only 10 votes less than the 1st place. Although we didn’t get the first place, it was a brilliant result that encourages us to carry on working in the next school year to beat this result.

The Eco-Schools coordinators would like to thank everyone for their commitment to promoting the group’s Poster and for the result achieved, but especially the student who created the poster, the 7th grader Diogo Moreira, from class E and the teacher Érica Fernandes who encouraged and motivated her students to participate.

In the upcoming school year, be aware that our Eco-Code Poster will be scattered throughout our school and you can take the time to follow all the advice it conveys.

Happy holidays and see you soon!!!

Erasmus+ AE Aver-o-Mar Journeys

On the morning of the 20th of July, between 9 am and 12 noon, the first Erasmus+ Seminar took place in the AE of Aver-o-Mar, promoted by the Erasmus+ team, with project coordinator Marta Antunes as moderator.

With an enriching program, the morning became a space for conversation and sharing of various experiences in the Erasmus+ program and, for this purpose, it was worth the contribution of some schools in the municipality of Póvoa de Varzim, CFAE Póvoa de Varzim/Vila do Conde and the opinion of teachers and students involved in several Key Actions of the program.

The seminar began with the intervention of the sub-director of the Grouping, Helena Costa, who, in addition to recognizing the importance of Erasmus+ projects in the dynamics of schools, also focused on the challenges that arise in the scope of managing the human resources involved in them.

The president of CAFAE Póvoa de Varzim/Vila do Conde, Luís Fernandes, directed his intervention to the importance of Erasmus+ projects in teacher training. During his intervention, he publicized the Erasmus+ project starting this year, Continue Up, which involves the center and the School Education Gateway, among other partners, and whose focus is intervention in the initial and continuous training of teachers. The Aver-o-Mar School Group will be one of the associated partners in this innovative project in the field of training.

In municipal terms, Rocha Peixoto Secondary School, Cego do Maio School Grouping and Rates School Grouping were present, respectively through the voice of Albina Maia, Ana Cristina Ribeiro and Anabela Aguiar, who shared their projects, potentialities, constraints and challenges, within the scope of Key Actions 1 and 2 of the Erasmus+ programme.

After a short break, the Erasmus+ team from Aver-O-Mar intervened presenting the results of the Erasmus+ project “Teaching and Learning Towards an Inclusive, Digital and Sustainable World”. Fátima Morais represented the teaching view of this work experience, while the Social Action technician Andreia Teixeira the social gaze, of those who participated in mobilities, under a jobshadowing regime, in three different moments, namely, Turkey, Slovenia and Italy. Through their intervention, it was possible for those present to better understand what this type of mobility consists of, the professional advantages it offers, as well as their experience in the schools of the countries that welcomed them. They highlighted the good practices observed in the classroom, the practices and responses in the social, cultural, digital and environmental domain that are developed in partner institutions, the bonds that were promoted between professionals, issues related to communication, and others. This was a training reality that took place for the first time at AE Aver-O-Mar but which we hope can happen again involving more teaching and non-teaching staff.

It was time to give voice to the students, and accompanying teachers, about the experience and the impact that these projects had on their personal and academic lives. Everyone was unanimous in what a memory for life will be like: because they traveled abroad for the first time, established new friendships, left their comfort zone, applied academic knowledge such as communicating in English and other, learned about new cultures, habits and customs. It was certainly a highlight of this morning for sharing good practices.

Finally, the vision that the partners have about our Grouping, as a host, the work developed in partnership and the lessons learned was presented. Through recordings of testimonies, partner teachers and students left their gaze on Aver-O-Mar. We are happy to know that they felt satisfied and fulfilled with the reception and the pedagogical and cultural programs that they experienced in our country, that is, in our school.

The seminar ended with the intervention of the President of the Parents Association, Carlos Pinheiro, who congratulated the AE’s initiative in participating in this European program; the president of the General Council of the group who highlighted the added value that the projects represent for the academic development of the students, as well as for their personal growth as citizens of a global Europe, and also for the professional updating of the teaching and technical staff; finally, the Vice-President of Póvoa de Varzim City Council, Dr Luís Diamantino, congratulated the Group for the initiative of organizing this seminar, for its action in favor of the internationalization of educational practices and for the commitment of its professionals; he also highlighted the groupings present for their work, highlighting the impact that their action has been having on students, the schools and the community in general.

This was certainly a fruitful morning, extended to the county community, which boosted the dissemination of innovative practices, European-level dynamics whose main objective is to improve teaching and learning in the municipality of Póvoa de Varzim.
