Father Jean-Baptiste APTECHE decided to build the school in Passa-Quatro and therefore to develop St Michel GARIGOITS’s work in Brazil.
Henri SAJOUS was appointed for the carrying out of this project, together Architect of Ibarre church, who had been living in Brazil for several years. Ibarre is St Michel GARIGOITS’s native land.  The purpose was to adapt to the existing building the creation of a simple and nice looking secondary school, in the spirit of Bétharram religious community.
