The Big 4 Tournament was yet a great success at the NR2 Camp. It was a time where athletes came together from Rio, São Paulo and Brasília for a 4 day sports competition. We had the chance to witness talent, sportsmanship, character and respect. We are proud of our EARJ Panthers for a wonderful season and for setting examples and values of true athletes. Congratulations to Girls Softball and Boys Volleyball for their GOLD MEDAL as well as Girls Futsal and Girls Volleyball for their SILVER MEDAL and Boys Futsal and Boys Softball for their 3rd place. We are a proud community.

As turmas do Lower School celebraram o Dia do Índio, pesquisando e elaborando projetos relacionados aos diferentes aspectos da cultura indígena brasileira. No dia 19 de abril, aconteceu uma belíssima exposição dos trabalhos, oficinas de maquiagem e adereços e degustação de comidas típicas. Todos que compareceram puderam conhecer e apreciar os temas abordados. Parabéns aos nossos alunos!
Picking up on the Kite Saturday event’s success, we have invited the teachers from Rocinha to come again to the EARJ and show us and bring back a long lost childhood game: Marbles!
Marbles is not only a fun, positive activity, but most importantly it is a way of preserving the culture of "playing outside" that needs to be preserved and passed down from older generations to younger ones.
Join us on Saturday the 16th, at 3pm for a day full of memory and play! And let’s welcome the members of the Rocinha community once again.
EARJ hosted on April 2nd one of the most expected commemorative dates of our calendar, the International Family Day.

We would like to extend a big Thank You to EARJ's PTA and all community embers that works dot make this event yet another great success.
