Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Canada, Lebanon, Pakistan, Peru, United States, Taiwan. We have exchanged teddy bears and friendship with all these countries and learned a lot from their culture. Now, some of our mascots will integrate the school library. So, everybody can go there and take a look at the notebooks, pictures and diaries from all these countries. Teacher Neusa loved the idea of hosting Maria Eduarda, Fofo, Miguel and Nina Pinheiro and they will love if you pay them a visit.
