 The School of Social Work - Mother Mary Social Studies Centre opened at 12:00 on November 13, 2010. The establishment of The School of Social Work was initiated and supported by the late Sister Maria Goisis. Therefore, the opening of the centre is also a tribute to Sister Maria Goisis. The centre is located at Rua de Pedro Coutinho, No. 90, adjacent to Caritas Library and Saint John de Brito School. We are committed to all kinds of work to promote a better society, including the study of poverty and vulnerable groups. We also publish research materials, documents and data to young people and social workers who are interested in relevant research work. In addition, the centre are with activity rooms (for ceramic art, film editing) and multi-purpose function rooms. In the future, more auxiliary activities will be planned to benefit all sectors of the community.
