The Happy Children In Quanyuan Primary School In Shenyang
I don’t often travel the Northeast China. Actually, the three provinces in Northeast China are vast and immense, where I often visit is only limited to the Shenyang downtown. Whether it’s snow-covered winter or fiery-hot summer, I could feel its fresh air much better than bulk of places elsewhere, and could shot brighter and clearer photos. I’ve been to the grand stage Liu Laogen ( founded by the renowned Chinese crosstalk artist Zhao Benshan), yet pitifully, photograph was banned there by scattered security men.
I just took very few photos of schools in Shengyang, but Quanyuan Primary School was among the few. At noon, under the scorching sun, everyone was listening to Teacher Li’s lecture, even those parents densely standing behind were no exception. Given that the burning sun was unbearable for students, the school attempted to conclude the lecture for several times, yet failed, for going against students’ will. In this way, sweating, the students kept listening to the speech till the end, which aroused a great touch to parents behind and teachers on stage. In fact, the education problems in China were known to all, however nothing could be changed by anyone. These words from Teacher Li’s mouth voiced the students’ deepest thoughts, boiling the spot. 2009-6-16Ray
