Bray People - - NEWS -

The Brazil­ian am­bas­sador to Ire­land His Ex­cel­lency Mr Afonso Jose Sena Car­dosa paid a visit to St Peter’s School, and Sun­beam House Ser­vices last week.

The am­bas­sador was joined at the Lit­tle Bray school, and Cedar Es­tate on Kil­lar­ney Road by his wife Solange Es­costeguy, and Daniela Oliveira Guerra who is with the cul­tural and co­op­er­a­tion sec­tion of the Brazil­ian Em­bassy.

Dur­ing a lively dis­cus­sion with ser­vice users the am­bas­sador told every­one about Brazil’s prepa­ra­tions for the up­com­ing Olympics and Par­a­lympics.

He also con­grat­u­lated ser­vice users and staff on the ex­cel­lent ex­hibits they had pre­pared for his visit.

The am­bas­sador was vis­it­ing as part of the Bray Li­ons Club’s Win­dows on the World project or­gan­ised by John McEvoy.

Win­dows On The World was ini­ti­ated by Bray Li­ons Club in 2010 and links lo­cal pri­mary schools with In­ter­na­tional Em­bassies.

Am­bas­sadors from the dif­fer­ent coun­tries vis­ited the var­i­ous schools, and the pupils then pre­pared projects to be dis­played in lo­cal shop win­dows as part of the St. Patrick’s Day Fes­tiv­i­ties in Bray.

This project con­tin­ues, link­ing the schools with dif­fer­ent coun­tries each year.

The Span­ish am­bas­sador was at Marino on June 15.

The St Peter’s dis­play on the south Amer­i­can coun­try is up in Pho­tocraft on Quins­boro Road.
