“Colourful Diversity” (value: CHF 1.00) is the name given to the special stamp to commemorate the 50th birthday of the HPZ Remedial Education Centre of the Principality of Liechtenstein which also accurately describes the nature of the organisation. The graphic artist Karin Beck arranged twelve handprints of children attending the HPZ school in bright colours so that they form a circle.
The HPZ Remedial Education Centre founded in 1967 by a sponsoring organisation under the presidency of Princess Gina and run today as a foundation is for people with special needs. The HPZ offers them a school, a therapy centre, a place of work and for some, a home. In 1969, the institution’s success story began when the special-needs school and special- needs kindergarten were opened. Shortly afterwards, a speech therapy service and the first workshops were set up. Over the decades, an increasing number of educational programmes and therapies became available and new occupational workshops and residential groups were added. The first residential group for children was opened in 2011. One year later the HPZ set a further significant milestone in the organisation’s history by inaugurating its new schoolhouse.
