On July 28th, Peru celebrates Independence Day. In rural areas in the month of July few classes get done, students practice marching for hours everyday. The most "creative" students find places to hide to avoid the strict monotony.
But marching is a way for children to show and develop patriotism for their country. It is a tradition in Peru and many other countries, with every holiday being celebrated with a parade. Sometimes all students, sometimes just the best marchers, march in town parades.
Check out EA students, many of whom earned special roles because of their discipline, leadership, and marching prowess.
