Rituals & Traditions at Lagoa
Almancil embraces the rituals and traditions shared by all Globeducate British International Schools. Our membership of this dynamic network means we enjoy a sense of community, mark milestones and enjoy cultural celebrations via assemblies and ceremonies like our global counterparts.
We develop the whole school community through our House system, promoting citizenship and wellbeing, while encouraging teamwork and participation outside of the traditional classroom environment - and across different age groups.
Students join one of four houses - Eagle, Wolf, Chameleon, or Lynx - and come together throughout their schooling with their House for sports and school-wide events.
Each year, four Captains are elected, providing an excellent leadership opportunity for them - and giving a voice to the wider student community.
Although our campus is new, we have already established regular events in the school calendar:
- Sports Day in Almancil Stadium
- Halloween celebrations
- Easter bonnet parade
- St Patrick’s Day BBQ
