Admission of new pupils

The Escola da Esperança is meant to become a school for children from the surrounding region and the community of Tamera.

We have submitted an application in 2012 for the recognition of our school and we are in contact with the appropriate authorities. We hope we can open in the next 3 years. As soon as the Escola da Esperança has been approved we can receive children from the region.

First Contact, visit us in an Open Day at the Children’s Place
Interested parents and families can come and get to know the Children’s Place and the team. They can get an insight into the work of the developing school, the current status of the preparations and the licensing process and there will be opportunities to ask questions.

To register for next Open Day please register.


Individual Talks
Once you have taken part in one of the information afternoons we are happy to meet you for a one-to-one conversation to get to know you and your child’s situation. In this way we can decide together whether the Escola da Esperança is right for your child and if so what the next steps would be. Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision for their future. We would like you to be as well-informed as possible before making your final selection; for this reason we ask you to read the information on our website thoroughly.


The Escola da Esperança will be a private school and finances itself through monthly fees from parents, through private donations and grants from charitable trusts. We are trying to set-up a system to make it possible to take in children from families with lower incomes. Parents are asked to participate in building up a strong support circle and scholarship fund. Please contact us directly for questions relating to school fees.


Getting to know Tamera
The Escola da Esperança is part of the International Peace Research Centre, Tamera. It was developed by its coworkers and is carried by Tamera’s years of research. We ask you to inform yourself about the basic thoughts of Tamera. More information about Tamera can be found here!

Another option for parents who want to get to know Tamera better are the Tamera introduction weeks. During these weeks you can get an insight into the basic thoughts of Tamera and its projects.
