A little bit history of it
The first issue of the magazine came out on November 28-th 1924 and each year the school’s birthday was celebrated. For the matter it has edited, the “Laboremus” has been the voice of the school and the most faithful reflection of the life and activity of that institution in all teaching and extracurricular phenomena. The high level of mastering English, especially by high school students, made them fully possible to utilize plenty of foreign literature thus harvesting lots of encyclopedic matter.
The magazine has carried out a very valuable work to promote the progressive element towards attracting industry-building as a fundamental element in the country’s economic development. To directly help in the formation of students, the magazine became a prominent teaching tribune and a prudent teacher. To help in educating people with a better cultural life, the magazine was often involved in presenting, propagating and analyzing civic and legal norms.
Under the guidance of the best teachers, “Laboremus” became attentive to the acute problems of time in Albania, thus presenting itself as a profound and courageous analyst.
A great merit of the magazine is even the encouragement of students’ literary gift thus cultivating the Albanian national culture. So much was the literary creation of students incited that hardly any magazine number would be found to have not an original or translated poetry from students’ hands.
Eventually, due to the variety of the subject matter, its volume and the thorough Albanian spirit that ever permeated the published material, the magazine became a second major educational institution with a significant and sustained impact on student formation. So it was appreciated and loved by the youth and not only them by all those who picked and read it.
On a pondering day,
My eyes wondered on the “Laboremus”
And watching it through,
What’s there in that “Laboremus”
In “Laboremus” you find teachings
Even labour makes your greed
Principles there you find
If perpetually you do read.
