In a second moment, there was a debate, moderated by the psychologist Leila Pedro, in which the Vice-President of the School, Paulo Escórcio, also intervened. Problems were raised and suggestions were made, including training for parents on digital educational platforms, moving the crosswalk that is in front of the exit/entrance of the school, given the risk situations found, and also the need for a greater investment/concern with the inclusion of students.

There were several contributions from those present in relation to the school itself and how it can better respond to the needs of the children and young people who attend it.
