Portuguese Waldorf School Association joins ECSWE
The upgrade of the Portuguese association from guest status to official membership brings the number of official ECSWE members from 26 to 27

Dur­ing the Gen­er­al Assem­bly on 14th June, ECSWE mem­bers approved the request of the Asso­ci­ação Por­tugue­sa de Esco­las com Ped­a­gogia Wal­dorf (APEPWfor full mem­ber­ship in ECSWE. The approval as a full mem­ber marks an impor­tant step for the Por­tuguese Wal­dorf move­ment and ends a long peri­od of indi­rect rep­re­sen­ta­tion by the Span­ish Aso­ciación de Cen­tros Educa­tivos Waldorf. 

From now on, the 4 Por­tuguese Wal­dorf schools, 5 kinder­gartens, and 566 pupils will be direct­ly rep­re­sent­ed by ECSWE rep­re­sen­ta­tive Pedro Miguel, who pre­vi­ous­ly attend­ed Coun­cil meet­ings as a per­ma­nent guest.

The upgrade of the Por­tuguese asso­ci­a­tion from guest sta­tus to offi­cial mem­ber­ship brings the num­ber of offi­cial ECSWE mem­bers from 26 to 27.
