Our experience at the Junior Achievement competition was truly enriching. We got to put what we learned in the classroom into action by identifying a problem and creating a product to solve it. Even though we did not pass to the national final, we enjoyed meeting other students, and experts, and have gotten a lot of feedback from them. We are excited to continue to improve Impartial and to move forward with our idea. Thank you, Mr. Carvalho and Mrs. Pinto for all of your help! - Carolina Vivas
CLIP took part in another edition of Unlimited Fair, the regional stage of "The Enterprise" competition, promoted by Junior Achievement Portugal. Team Impartial represented the school with the "URVote" app. This project from our F9 & F10 students aims to solve the growing abstention levels and the generalised disinterest that youngsters show towards politics.
Being a part of impartial was definitely a very rewarding experience. From having the opportunity to work alongside amazing people that I wouldn’t usually work with, to being able to expand my horizons in regard to the ups and downs of entrepreneurship, I am grateful to everyone involved in making this project as dynamic and worthwhile as it was. And even though our journey was cut short, it is certainly something that I will remember for a very long time. - Marta Costa
Throughout the Unlimited Fair, that took place in Mercado Ferreira Borges, team Impartial had to pitch their idea to a panel of judges and showcase their app on a stand. Experiences like this develop our students' skills, taking education far beyond the classroom. Congratulations to Impartial for their performance, and for wanting to be part of a more political literate future.
This experience was truly unique. I must thank Mrs. Pinto, Mr. Carvalho, Rafaela, Valentina and Carolina for welcoming me and Marta to Impartial. It was really fun to have all the meetings and the “Feira Ilimitada” was truly a thrilling occurrence. I absolutely loved it. Thank you! - Matilde Lopes

Real Food Garden
The UN Sustainable Development Goals state as paramount that citizens work towards Responsible Consumption and Production and Sustainable Cities and Communities. So, every school that recognises the importance of a healthy diet for a good quality of life should try to grow food organically with their students. That’s what we started doing at the end of last school year, when we installed nine growing beds right at the entrance of The Shire. Lettuce and cabbage, tomatoes and peppers, beetroots and pumpkins, they all grew abundantly in a few weeks and without the need to go back to synthetic pesticides. These were cared for by students from every level of our school, and we got an astonishing first harvest in the last day of school. Students, parents, teaching and non-teaching staff gathered to celebrate and bring home several vegetable products. It was the kickstart of a project that we hope will become evermore fruitful by being integrated in the curricular activities of our students.

Delta wins the Futsal Inter-House Tournament
The competition is a chance for students to showcase their sporting abilities and earn valuable points for their respective Houses in the race for the coveted House Cup. This year's competition was particularly exciting, with the final match being one of the most intense in recent memory. Delta and Sigma both played with incredible speed and precision, making it a thrilling contest from start to finish. Delta ultimately emerged as the winner, earning them valuable points for their House and putting them in a strong position in the House Cup race. One of the most impressive aspects of the competition was the support and enthusiasm of the audience. The stands were full of supporters from all Houses, cheering on their teammates and creating a lively and exciting atmosphere. The players fed off this energy, and it was clear that the audience played a vital role in the competition's success. The Interhouse Futsal Competition is just one of the many ways CLIP encourages student participation in sports and promotes teamwork and sportsmanship. The competition provides an opportunity for students to showcase their skills, form new friendships, and work together towards a common goal. We would like to congratulate Delta on their hard-fought victory and thank all the players, coaches, and supporters who made the competition such a success. We look forward to seeing what next year's competition will bring!
