The authorities congratulated school pupils, their parents and teachers on the occasion.
"The lycée has a good history. Excellent teaching staff works here, and good traditions were laid down in the institution," the governor Ivan Belozertsev noted.
In turn, the assistant Presidential envoy in the Volga Federal District Oleg Melnichenko explained that he was doubly glad to be present at the opening of the new building of lycée No. 2 because it had been built at the place where school No. 14, which he graduated from, had been previously located.
"Traditions laid down there will keep on existing, they will continue," he stressed.
According to the city head Valery Savelyev, the institution has comfortable conditions for school pupils' studying and teachers' work, and Victor Kuvaytsev expressed hope that the teachers would be able to make the children involved and to build up them into decent citizens.
"I am sure, dear pupils, that you have a sense of purpose, passion for knowledge, but I would like to wish you to learn the most important thing – to be useful to society," the head of the Penza administration said.
Then, Victor Kuvaytsev and Valery Savelyev presented the school with interactive boards.
During the ceremony, the builders who took part in the construction received letters of gratitude. The general director of the LLC "Penzastroykom" Vladimir Savinkin handed a ceremonial key to the principal of lycée No. 2 Valentina Shcheglova.
Then, the pupils listened to a sound of a bell ringing for the first time in the school.
After this, the ceremony continued without the honorary guests of the event, who inspected the new school's premises. In the first place, the lycée principal showed them the classroom for teaching handicraft to boys, which had modern equipment including NC machine tools.
The guests also inspected the classrooms for teaching cooking and sewing to girls, the room of the youth innovative creative work centre "Rost", which had functioned at the premises of the lycée before, and the canteen.
