On April 6th a dinner organised by RCEPI and the School Board was held at Esto School for the second year to help raise funds for the less privileged pupils.
74 people attended and enjoyed an excellent meal prepared and served by the pupils studying catering.

During the dinner the Fado Inverso Project (Ana Roque & João David Almeida; www.facebook.com/FadoInverso/) performed a brilliant musical show. Everyone had a wonderful evening enjoying both the food and entertainment.

Funds raised last year were used to buy a tablet and laptop with software for the special education pupils at the school. This year the 1300 euros raised from such a successful evening will be used to buy personal computers for the school library especially for use by the less privileged students at the school.Musician/Band
