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.

The Herondina School provides emails, phone 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).

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.

We would like to inform you that the re-enrollments of students who are already studying at Herondina school will be AUTOMATIC.

Students will be re-enrolled in the same classes, as shown in the following examples:
Class 11 of 2021 will be class 21 in 2022.
Class 12 of 2021 will be class 22 in 2022.
And so on.

ATTENTION: The exceptions will be classes 20A and 50, which will no longer exist.
Students in the 20A class will be distributed in the other 3rd year/grade afternoon classes in 2022.
Students in class 50 will be distributed in the other 6th year/grade morning classes in 2022.

This is necessary because when we move from the 2nd to the 3rd year/grade, and from the 5th to the 6th year/grade, the number of students per class increases. Therefore, the number of classes in this transition is reduced.
