We have been living in Lisbon since September along with our 15yr old son. We know the area well as my husband is Portuguese (i'm english). My 15yr old son could do with making a few friends though. I was wondering if there is anyone out there with teenagers or if anyone could point us in the right direction. We lived in France for 10yrs prior to moving to Portugal, so he can speak french/english and a little Portuguese. He's a typical teenager into sports, music, etc.. would be lovely to hear from anyone

Hi Everyone, We are a young couple moving to Lisbon, also expecting a baby this upcoming January. I would grately appreciate any recommendations regading prenatal classes in Lisbon, as well as Mommy/Baby Groups that are open to foreigners and expats. Thank you everyone in advance,
The Museu do Brinquedo (Toy Museum) in Sintra is to close at the end of August. Negotiations with the Town Council (Câmara Municipal) have broken down without a solution being found, according to a source within the Foundation which owns the collection of over 60.000 toys. 7 employees will lose their jobs. Almost all the toys came from the personal collection of João Arbeus Moreira and have been on display in the former Sintra Fire Station for over 16 years. The premises were provided free of charge by the Sintra Council along with a subsidy of €5.000 per month. Recent changes in legislation regarding the financing of Foundations have meant that the Council cannot legally continue to subsidize the exhibition and alternate means of finance have not been found. It is possible that premises may be found in Lisbon to allow the toys to continue on display but this is not yet confirmed.

Hello, I've moved from London to Cascais in the end of May with two kids. It seemed to be fine for kids to stay around the town during June, but in July, my 5 yr son got terribly bored. I sent him to summer school at St. Julian's for two weeks until last week, he enjoyed a lot. This morning, he didn't feel good and screamed it's too boring to stay with me and his little sis who's only one and a half year. I have no idea what I should do for him. I searched other summer schools at international schools but all of them would finish their program by this Friday, asked ELC Cascais about tutorials but it also would close in August. I think he needs a routine to go somewehere even if it is not a full time one. Anyone has info about camp, activities, clubs during summer holidays for 5 yr old boy? He cannot understand Portuguase, so it should be English speaking. Please help me to survive until September when his school starts!
