On a tour of Turkey, our group of Americans visited the Fatma Gumay Primary School in a city near Ephesus (Efes). In the school yard, the tourists handed their cameras to the children and lined up to be photographed in front of the school. The headmaster, shown with the camera at eye level, took each shot while the children held the cameras and handed them to him one at a time. Of course the small children pressed all the buttons on each camera they got their hands on.
The atmosphere at the school was very comfortable. Teachers and students obviously liked each other and all did their best to be hospitable and kind to their foreign guests. It was a highlight of our tour.

Thanks for this nice shot. I remembered my childhood. Previously the uniforms were all in black color (until I was in the fourth grade) but then they changed it to blue all over the country to change the effect of pessimistic black color to optimistic blue color. For me, it wasn't a big change but for many it was very important. By the way, the students with ties are above 5th grade. Thanks for sharing...
