schoolgirl, at lunchtime

School attendance is mandatory in Cuba between the ages of 6 to 16. This girl’s uniform indicates that she’s in primary school. Cuban primary school curriculum includes dance and gardening, lessons on health and hygiene, and Cuban revolutionary history. All levels of curriculum focus on the principles of hard work, self-discipline, and love of country.”

Some students may go on to attend the University of Havana, which was founded in 1727. In case you were wondering about long-standing Cuban traditions of higher education.
