On Tuesday, 19th June, families and students of Form 1 and 1st Year Liceo all gathered solemnly to celebrate José Gervasio Artigas' birthday. The students wore their uniforms with pride, wearing the blue and white badges on their lapels, close to their hearts and entered the Gymnasium in two: one student from Liceo hand in hand with a Junior student. Form 1 made their promise, whilst 1st Year Liceo students made a stronger commitment, by swearing a very profound vow. The audience was delighted with songs, poems and even a play representing Artigas' legacy to our people and country. It was a day that made us all feel very proud to be Uruguayan.
