School visits
For those of you that plan to arrive early the LAHC schools in São Paulo are opening their doors for you to make a visit.
Given that they will be VERY busy with the conference organisation, the number of visitors that they can receive is limited and it is essential that you contact the respective Heads prior to arrival. The schools are:
