News from Mrs Sherry, Adriana Andrade’97 and Daniela Hunter Andrade’00


Mrs. Sherry, Adriana Andrade’97 and Daniela Hunter Andrade’00 … if you were at TBS in the 90s, you certainly remember them.  You might have had English classes with Mrs. Sherry in the Ribeiro dos Santos building. You might have enjoyed the school plays when all seniors participated and certainly Adriana and Daniela were part of them.

Over 10 years after their graduations, we have now received a letter from their parents Mr. Rui Andrade and Mrs. Sherry Andrade. How good it is to hear from them!

Congratulations on all their achievements. The British School family is delighted that they have all done well!

Below is  the letter sent   to Mr. Wiseman. If  you  woul d like  to  contact   any   of them,  please   let  us  know  and we  will  put  you  in  touch.

Brasilia, August 17, 2010

Dear Paul,

 We would like to take this occasion to inform you that Adriana received her PhD in Neuroscience from Oregon Health and Science University last year and was the recipient of the 2010 John A. Resko Outsanding PhD Dissertation Award. For her thesis, Adriana discovered a novel physiological process which occurs specifically in hippocampal neurons under conditions of restricted oxygenation, analogous to stroke. She also found that different brain regions respond differently to these conditions, which should shed important light on drug design to treat stroke victims. Her results have been published in two scientific manuscripts, including the Journal of Physiology, and presented in several scientific meetings across the US.

 We would like to thank you and all the teachers of The British School who contributed to the excellent education of our daughter Adriana. Although it has been many years since she graduated from the British School, we know that her solid educational base began with the excellence of The British School and the I.B. programme.

 It is also a pleasure to add that Adriana was married to Paul Focke on Saturday, July 17, 2010, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Portland Oregon. Paul was a classmate at OHSU and also completed his PhD in Neuroscience in 2009. They are both currently working as Post-Doctorates at OHSU.

 Our daughter Daniela was married to Pedro Henrique Melo on January 9th 2008, and they are living in London. Both are graduates in Cinema and Pedro also has a B.A. in Marketing and Propaganda from ESPM. Daniela is currently studying Nutrition at The University of  Westminster

 Once again, Rui and I would like to thank all of you at The British School for your dedication and high level of excellence in education. Well done!


                                                                                                       With warmest regards, Sherry and Rui Andrade”
