Our mission is to support the Lusito School in equipping each learner as best possible for their passage through life.
The Lusito School hold an annual sports day.
Parents and learners enjoy an active day filled with activities. Active Kidz is one of the activities of the day. Active Kidz builds confidence and self-esteem in our learners through exploration and learning while having fun playing, as well as developing motor skills by using different equipment and objects. Our learners also participate in target throwing, bowling and basketball. Each learner receives a certificate on the day for outstanding participation.
An active day enjoyed by all!
This year’s Ladies Brunch was once again a huge success, with 230 Ladies joining us for a memorable morning. This year’s brunch was the 10th one that Lusito has hosted and is becoming increasingly popular.
Noemia Contente, Executive Committee Member welcomed Dra Joana Miranda, Consul General of Portugal, Dra Luisa Fragoso and Ms Paula Caetano and all the ladies and thanked them for their continued support to the Lusito Association.
Ladies were treated to a scrumptious brunch, and entertained by three very talented youth performers: Robert Adão, Katia Dias and Jacinta Demetrio and not forgetting our emcee Llewellyn Cordier.
Ladies were also enjoyed some shopping at our mini market. Beautiful handmade Christmas décor, latest fashion cork handbags, baby and toddler clothing, spices, olives, liquors, jewelry and of course not forgetting Belem Bakery with their delicious Portuguese pastries as well as Absolutely Decadent displaying their homemade treats.
A BIG Thank you to our sponsors for supporting this event and to all the Ladies for a wonderful morning.
