8.3.2 Arts in schools

The National Education Guide Law gives all students the opportunity to play sports and take part in cultural, artistic and recreational activities, and ensures that student are provided with cultural training in the fields of arts, literature and cultural heritage.
Some art subjects, such as educational games, music and plastic arts are included in all stages of education with an average of one hour a week per subject.

Intermediate and secondary education does include some stage play scripts, in addition to the attention dedicated to cultural practice by forming student artistic groups. Since the era of independence, educational and academic art institutions have remained unchanged. However, in June 2012 the Institute of Architecture in the capital added a university department to specialize in the restoration of heritage buildings.
