On Thursday, the Grand Duke attended a lecture to mark the 100th anniversary of the Lycee Technique Prive Emilie Metz. (Pictures here.) When the school opened on November 4, 1914 it was the first time that young students could receive an education that went beyond general academics. The school incorporated general education with technical training required for specific careers. The school has maintained an excellent reputation and continues to evolve. Last year the Post Luxembourg issued a stamp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the school.
On Friday, the Grand Duke attended another lecture. This lecture marked the 20th anniversary of the Syndicat Intercommunal de Dépollution des Eaux Résiduaires du Nord. Pictures of it can be found at Lëtzebuerger Journal as well.
Also on Thursday, Grand Duke Henri bid farewell to the outgoing ambassadors of Cuba and Cape Verde during audiences at the palais.
