Photograph of school children lined up in rows, dressed in dark colored uniforms. The students in the first several rows appear to be holding musical instruments, including one student holding a large drum. In the background is one very large, white building and a smaller white building on the facing right. There are several large trees surrounding the buildings, and the foreground is flat and grassy.
