I am very excited. When I see things like these I admire Fidel more, who in 1989 —a very difficult year for our country— founded this school, when we did not know how we were going to survive. For schools like these we are willing to give everything, he stressed before the participants in the celebration last evening.
During a conversation with the parents of the celebrated and guests, Raul Castro assured that it is one of the most beautiful, touching and fair works of the Revolution.
