Given Curaçao's recent history I would have thought to find
Dutch —or at least inspired by the Netherlands— design, similar to what
we have found in Sint Eustatius
The sign at hand, however, is clearly inspired by the Mediterranean group of signs
(see an overview of the type in Malta).
They run light without any bookbag (†) and therefore come closest to a Portuguese variant
of the design.
Notice also that the girl kept her hair; not so in Portugal.
† Perhaps homework is not known in either country?
