In July, I visited the Zundao school in Sichuan, Mianzhu with other teachers and students. We have 5 groups, Economic, People’s livelihood, Tourism, Education, and Art. In these days, we start the research and learning of each group at the same time.
The economic group personally experienced selling the fruit, they learned a lot about what do people need and how much do people need. The people’s livelihood group visited the residents and approached the people, also, they help another school of arranging the books. The tourism group developed the city walk to experience many places in Mianzhu, we go to eat, drink, and play. The education group painted the appearance on the tea mountain and produced dubbing picture books. And the art group prepared music classes for the students and visited the tea mountain to learn about tea culture.
The whole activity benefited us a lot. We learned more about the Zundao’s characteristics and cultural history, and we became familiar with the students there.
The achievement of every group is super well. For example, Art group play a popular song “Dao Xiang” by not only singing, and also with guitar and piano. Many students in their group didn’t learn about music so much at the first day, but after only 5 days, it is a wonderful performance.
It shows that everything can be possible if we try and cooperate. Maybe in the eyes of others, Zundao is only a small place， or even be a backward village. But it’s not , it is a simple and beautiful place with its own characteristics in my eyes. Although its development is not as good as Shanghai, it must not be unattractive.
