The CBR Journalism Club is an iniciative aligned with the Strategies for Learning with the School Library, the 2022/2023 Priorities for School Libraries, and the Student Profile as a Compulsory Schooling Graduate.

On November 16, the Pre-School 5 Year-Olds' Classrooms received a very special visit. Librarians Fernanda and Cristina from the Olhão Municipal Library's Educational Service came to tell the story of the "Three-Eyed Frog".
Through this story of a very smart little frog and his polluted lake, the students were able to learn about the importance of protecting the environment.
CBR extends a warm thanks to the Olhão Municipal Library and the Librarians Fernanda and Cristina - and a tight hug from our little ones!
In the week from October 10th to 14th, writer, illustrator and storyteller Pedro Seromenho was in Olhão for storytime sessions with students from schools in the city.
On the 14th, the author visited CBR for a session with Portuguese Studies Years 1-4 and English Studies Junior Primary students.
The writer told excerpts from his stories with the participation of students and teachers, who enjoyed an hour of fantasy, laughter and joy.
Pedro Seromenho also drew a magnificent Dreaming Girl live, which he offered us and will be on display at the School Library.
The session ended with an autograph session, where the author signed the books purchased by the students and drew their favorite animals.
From October 11 to 14 2021, CBR's School Library will host the Traveling Exhibition "Languages Make Us Stronger", a project by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation in partnership with Europe Direct Algarve.
The exhibition comprises 37 copies of the classic work Alice in Wonderland, in 37 different languages. Students have the opportunity, together with their class, to explore the different editions and listen to texts read in the most varied languages by their colleagues and teachers of different nationalities.
Armed with curiosity and willingness to learn, grades 2, 3 and 4 visited CBR's School Library with their Head Teachers.
Grades 2 and 4 had the opportunity to get to know the space and its rules, and to request their favorite books to read at home; Grade 3 had a questions sheet and were divided into groups, ready to use the resources of the Library to answer their queries.
