Foreign Information

Welcome to Herondina School! We are a public school maintained by the city of Florianópolis/SC, located in the Ingleses neighborhood. A place that today is the largest neighborhood outside the central area of the city. In our institution we offer elementary education (6 to 14 years old) in the regular modality in the morning and afternoon. At night, the school offers elementary education, but in the form of Youth and Adult Education (EJA), for young people, adults and seniors outside of school age.


To request the enrollment of students, it is necessary to contact the school secretary/school’s office to check the availability of vacancies through the following contacts:
Phone | +55 48 32693091
Whatsapp | +55 48 32693091
If the school has a vacancy, the student's family must present:
1. Official student document issued in Brazil;
2. Official document of the father, mother or relative responsible for the student issued in Brazil;
3. Proof of residence issued within a maximum of three months, proving that the family already resides in Florianópolis/SC;
4. Copy of the vaccination card or declaration of vaccination discharge issued by the basic health unit;
5. Student's school record. If this document is from a country with an education system that is very different from the Brazilian one, it will be necessary to present it translated.



Elementary education in Brazil consists of 9 years. The student can enroll in the 1st year if they are 5 years old and complete 6 years old by March 31 of that year.

At Herondina School, students will participate in classes in Portuguese Language, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History and Physical Education in all school years.

The Herondina School provides emails, and Whatsapp numbers so that students' families can communicate with the school. All contacts can be found here on the school's website in the links: Team and Contacts (Equipe e Contatos).

At the moment, there is a single general Whatsapp number (+55 48 32693091), with automatic response, which directs families to the different sectors of the school.

In addition, each year/series/class has a Whatsapp group. It is a closed group and only the school administration sends out communications. In this space, all information about activities and events that take place at the school are displayed. In case of doubt, family members must send a message in private to the school's Whatsapp.

The school also offers an exclusive Whatsapp group for fathers, mothers and relatives of foreign students. In this environment, translated communications are published whenever possible. This is an open group, which enables interaction between family members, so they can help each other. For example, someone who did not understand a communication sent in Portuguese by the school can ask for help in this group. Anyone who knows Portuguese can write, explain and help another family.

If you are a foreigner and have a son or daughter already enrolled at Herondina school, you can join this group by clicking on the following link:



EDUCATIONAL ORIENTATION: AN IMPORTANT SECTOR IN THE WELCOMING OF FOREIGN STUDENTS Educational advisors/guidance counselors are professionals who work outside the classroom and have as their main focus the monitoring of school life. They articulate pedagogical actions to ensure that students are included and successfully adapt to school life. Among the actions developed, the following stand out:

  • APOIA: a program to combat school dropout;
  • Monitoring of infrequency;
  • Health problems and medical certificates;
  • Learning difficulties;
  • Organization and referrals of class councils;
  • Meetings with family members about student learning and indiscipline;
  • School inclusion process for students with foreign nationality;
  • Referrals to PSE (School Health Program);
  • Multidisciplinary assessment and Specialized Educational Care (speech therapist, ophthalmologist, multidisciplinary assessment, among others).

It is important to observe even more in the pandemic and post-pandemic times the emotional health of students. If you observe any of the above situations, notify the educational advisor/guidance counselor for the appropriate referrals. Educational advisors/guidance counselors are available to mothers, fathers and legal guardians for any clarification. Office hours: Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 12:00pm and from 1:15pm to 5:15pm.
