Since 2006, the City Hall of Recife in partnership with the Ayrton Senna Institute has worked together to combat the age-series distortion in the municipality. On Tuesday (14), the mayor Geraldo Julio visited the headquarters of the Institute, in São Paulo, and renewed the agreement of the programs “Se Liga” and “Acelera”. The document was also signed by the president of the Ayrton Senna Institute, Viviane Senna.

The secretary of Education of Recife, Bernardo D’Almeida, and the executive director of Pedagogical Management, Rogério Morais, accompanied the mayor during his visit.

“Partnering with the Ayrton Senna Institute is undoubtedly very important for us to reduce this distortion between the age of our students. So, the renewal of the programs Se Liga and Acelera are important actions, because the Institute is a partner of the City Hall and here we renewed the agreement and, sure enough, the results of 2019 will be very positive, “said Geraldo.

Since 2014, the “Se Liga” and “Accelerate” programs have quintupled the number of children who have been able to adapt to the series-age in the early years. There were 1,007 jumps in 2018, compared to 238 in 2014.

According to the Secretary of Education, Bernardo D’Almeida, a technology transfer agreement was also signed for the Ayrton Senna Institute to be used in the programs in Recife. The mayor showed a willingness to build a partnership to strengthen the actions developed in the areas of robotics, maker, laboratories and fairs. “The municipality has been evolving in the results and, last year, performed the highest number of appointments in the historical series and the best result,” said D’Almeida.

For the executive director of Pedagogical Management, Rogério Morais, the conversation was very elucidative and Viviane Senna passed the evolution of the program in Recife. According to her, more than 24 thousand students have been attended since the beginning of the partnership.
