The creation of the “Arts” department in secondary education is based on a law of 13 April 1979. It takes into account the development that, especially in the 1970s, visual communication and the role of creativity in general education gained in importance and prestige Section E was implemented for the first time in the school year 1979-80 at the “Lycée des Garçons Luxembourg”. Today, it is an integral part of the Luxembourg school system and is characterised by its versatility and the integration of innovative working methods into everyday school life.
On the occasion of its anniversary, POST Philately offered young talents the opportunity to create a postage stamp. In cooperation with the subject teachers, a nationwide competition among secondary schools was organised in which 24 students participated. The jury decided on the designs of Sarah Schümperli (1E, LMRL - 1st Price), Linda Baustert (2E, AL - 2nd Price) and Lidia Pereira Mesquita (2E, LGL - 3rd Price).
