Saturday 28th January saw teachers, Academic Managers, Directors  and Admin staff from the 10 International House Language schools in Portugal gather together in Coimbra, central Portugal for their annual Training Day. A total of about 60 teachers and 20 admin staff enjoyed an action packed day of workshops followed by the now traditional social gathering over cheese and wine. [Mamie Martin’s grand-daughter, Janet, has worked for International House Portugal for many years, hence the Malawi-Scotland-Portugal connection].  This year a new element was added to Training Day – a charity cake sale in aid of the Mamie Martin Fund. A fine array of traditional British, North American and Portuguese cakes were available for sale throughout the day and provided much needed (& appreciated) energy food for those attending. By the end of the day a  magnificent total of 230€ was raised for MMF.
