First day of school, a postcard by artist M.Fuks, 1966.
As far as I know, the school uniform the girl is wearing was used from early 1960-ise until 1967.

A postcard for start of new school year by artist L.Härm, 1968
A striped cat is a well known teacher of Estonian children, as everyone knows the verse:
Meie kiisul kriimud silmad, istus metsas kännu otsas. Piip oli suus ja kepp oli käes, kutsus lapsi lugema. Kes ei mõistnud lugeda, see sai tukast sugeda. Kes see luges aru sai, sellele ta tegi pai.
Our cat has striped eyes he sat in forest on tree stump. Pipe in his mouth, stick in his hand, he called children to read. Who did not know how to read, got pulled by hair. Who was able to read and understand, got petted by the cat.

Our cat has striped eyes
he sat in forest on tree stump.
Pipe in his mouth, stick in his hand,
he called children to read.
Who did not know how to read,
got pulled by hair.
Who was able to read and understand,
got petted by the cat.
