Admission of new pupils

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

We have submitted an application for the recognition for our school and we are in contact with the appropriate authorities.  We are assuming that the school can officially open at the beginning of the next school year, September 2014. As soon as the Escola da Esperança has been approved we can receive children from the region.

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 step 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 informationon this website thoroughly.

Finances
The Escola da Esperança is a private school and finances itself through monthy fees from parents, through private donations and grants from charitable trusts. We are trying to set-up a system to makes it possible to take in children from families with lower incomes. Parents are asked to participate in building up a strong support circle and bursary 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 the coworkers and stands on the shoulders of Tamera’s years of reserach. 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 consituent projects.
