Scholl collegues

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends
Dear All
I often wander if it is possible to find school collegues, here we go:
I frequented Escola industrial e Comercial do Funchal years 1959 to 1965
Does anyone remember me:
I am Rogerio Ferreira
Let us see what this website can do for me
Very grateful for any genuine replies
Kind regards
