The formal celebration was held on the second day. After the holy mass in Saint Michael’s Cathedral we inaugurated a memorial tablet on the wall of the former building of the school, then there were further programmes in the current building. First Tibor Navracsics, Deputy-Prime Minister, our alumnus greeted the participants in the name of the Government of Hungary. Then Gyula Porga, Mayor of Veszprém welcomed those present on behalf of the town. The ceremonial speech was given by József Urbán, the deputy leader of the Hungarian Piarist Order. Our students also took part in the programme by giving ceremonial performances.
We also introduced two books to the public in the morning: The History Of The Piarist Grammar School In Veszprém From Its Foundation To Its Nationalization written by András Lichtneckert and Ferenc Tölcséry, and our Jubilee Almanac, which was written and edited by István Asztalos, the current teacher of the school.
The book presentations were followed by the opening of the renewed and improved School History Exhibition.
