To achieve this, the largest fundraising campaign in the history of the institution was officially launched on Monday.

The aim is to modernize all classrooms, where traditional wooden desks lead to flexible furniture, which allows teachers to create innovations and allow students to collaborate with each other.

Music rooms, a library, a restaurant, a parlor and a reception hall will be at the center of the transformation, and work will take place within five years.
