Caption:

This school seems well-supplied and the students seem earnest. However, these young boys are not immune to the distraction of a visit by outsiders. Although they don't know any better, they should be serious and take advantage of the few years of elementary education they receive. Opportunities to go on to secondary school are rare. This may be all they get.
