The City Council of Lamego will honor Patronato Nuno Álvares Pereira by awarding the City’s Gold Medal.
The ceremony will take place tomorrow in the Hall of the City Hall and can be followed live through the Facebook of the municipality of Lamé.
The award of this distinction appears as a way for the Municipality of Lamego to pay tribute to the work developed by Patronato Nuno Álvaro Pereira, recognizing not only its essential role in educating the city’s youngest population, but also the partnership established with the other schools in the municipality on behalf of greater access to education.
Thus, and at a time when the institution’s centenary is also marked, the gold award will be granted bearing in mind that “over the decades it has created solidity and firm consolidation, independence, reputation and respect earned by all local institutions and national.”
The ceremony will also include the presentation of the book “100 Anos 1000 Histórias”, by Alberto de Jesus Almeida, published as part of the centenary of the Patronato Nuno Álvares Pereira (1920-2020).
Established on January 20, 1920, the Patronato Nuno Álvares Pereira was born as a result of «a profound analysis of the issue of education in Portugal by various individuals from Lamego» and whose main objective was to combat illiteracy, namely through classes for the most disadvantaged children in Lamego.
