Confucius School




Confucius School

[VOICEOVER]

Baijiatuan is a quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of northwest Beijing. Located near the mountains, this area is filled with Western-style mansions. In two of them there is a school that teaches Chinese classics.

In one room, children as young as three read the Analects of Confucius aloud with teaching monitors. They point to each character as they read so that they will eventually recognize them.

In addition to learning the teachings of Confucius and calligraphy, the students also learn wushu and how to grow vegetables. They also make weekly hikes to the mountains for fresh air.

Founder Feng Zhe believes it’s important for students to get an education similar to Chinese scholars from centuries past:

[QUOTE of Feng Zhe]

Now so-called ‘new way of education’ in China is learned from the west. The curriculum is divided into subjects. But it was different in ancient China. Arts and science were not separated. It’s hard to tell whether “I Ching” is a humanities or natural science subject, and whether “Tao Te Ching” is medicine because it offers guides to living a long life. I believe this is the most ancient but also most advanced education style in China.

[VOICEOVER]

Not only do the students follow a classical curriculum, but also live in dorms, eat vegetarian meals and don’t have much access to televisions or computers like regular kids.

But that doesn’t bother them too much.

[QUOTE of two kids]

Boy: I get to know how to be a morally righteous person through the classics. For example, the classics teach us to be modest, things like that.

Girl: And “Di Zi Gui” (the Confucian rules for being a good student and child) teaches us to be filial to our parents.

Boy: Sometimes, When I understand the meaning of a sentence, I feel really happy

[VOICEOVER]

The curriculum is what attracted several teachers to the Confucius School. Chen Qiong

is one of them. After living and working in the United States for 10 years, after getting a western education, she came back to China recently.

[QUOTE of Chen Qiong]

Before I came there I was so attracted by western culture. But after I studied for about four or five years, I kind of, I feel the shallow and emptiness inside. So I think, from that time, I started to search and to look back.

[VOICEOVER]

But she is not the only one trying to fill a void in her education and identity. Actually there is a growing trend in today’s society to look towards the classics for guidance in daily life:

[QUOTE of Feng Zhe]

For some 100 years China has been learning from the west diligently. And it is till now that we find western values, as well as their knowledge can’t solve all the issues of the Chinese people, including those of the Chinese government. So we must refer back on our 5,000-year history.

[VOICEOVER]

Despite the school attracting many students and teachers, it has only opened for a few years and none of its students have graduated yet. It will be interesting to see if the classics really can help them fulfill their career aspirations and also adjust to normal post secondary institutions once they leave here.

Huo Tianxue, Principal of Haihong Elementary School said "The students that come are some nearby kids or some orphans."

A cafeteria was also built in the middle of an open field. There isn't much of a selection, but the children will at least be fed. Next to the cafeteria and the classroom is a place for children to sleep.

In Beichuan, on Monday afternoon, the Middle School's sign was found in the rubble. It was hung up to signal a new beginning.


In Mianyang, 509 high school students began classes with raising of the flag and singing of the national athem.

The research and training center of the Changhong Electronics Company has become the classrooms for students preparing for the upcoming college entrance exams.

Mianyang's Education authority also picked some teachers to help these high schoolers.

Student representative of Beichuan High School said "We Beichuan high school students will work hard together and our spirits will never be knocked down. We will all study hard because we still need to re-build our homes."

On Monday, around 70 Juyuan High School students resumed classes at a temporary facility built on the campus of a primary school.

Li Xingquan, Instructor of Juyuan High School said "We have only a few dozen students. We want to attract more back to school. We hope parents understand that students still need to study. Our work needs to be done. Life has to go on."

The high school operates on a half-day basis. Students are also receiving psychological counseling and being taught post-quake safety measures.

UK tourists touched by locals





Judy Wong's three-hour panda-watching trip turned into a disaster - but at the end of it, she has been left with a greater appreciation of China.

The 59-year-old Chinese-Briton was about to cuddle a giant panda and get a photo taken when the earthquake stuck the Wolong giant panda breeding park on Monday.

She told the press yesterday that being in Beijing was a miracle. "We were in the middle of the panda center surrounded by sheer cliffs. Rocks fell all around. But here I am, completely fine - and that is only half the miracle.

"The other half is the Chinese people and the way they took care of us."

She said the generosity of the people in Sichuan and the professionalism of the army as well as China International Travel Service staff presented a true picture of China to the British tourists.



Foreign tourists take a helicopter to Chengdu on Friday after being evacuated from Wolong in Sichuan province. Xinhua

"I've never been to China before. And (the experience of) the reunion is very important for me.
"We grieve for Chinese people in the tragedy but I am so glad to see that they still look to the future," Wong said.

She was in a 19-member British travel group that was flown to safety by helicopter after spending three nights on a bus in the Wolong. None was hurt.

Paying tribute to the Sichuan people, Wong said they were always ready to share what they had though there wasn't much left for them.

"They shared their food with us, basically rice," she said, adding she had eaten more porridge in the past three days than in her whole life.

Penelope Edwards, another member of the travel group, said she would never forget the Sichuan people.

"I was so cold on the second night when it was raining and someone gave me some dumplings with sesame fillings. It made such difference. They were smiling at us and I felt so warm," Edwards said.

She said despite losing their homes and being distraught, the people showed them kindness, help and support."I met a group of Tibetan students and they invited me to eat and sing."

The two women were also touched by the staff of the Wolong center who risked their lives to save pandas.

Premier Wen directs rescue operation




Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao continues to inspect some of the worst-hit areas in Sichuan province. He's now in Shifang city -- 50 kilometers away from the epicenter of Wenchuan county. Wen says the top priorities are saving lives and restoring transportation.



Premier Wen Jiabao's first stop was a primary school in Longju county in Shifang.

More than 130 people had been trapped in the rubble. Some were rescued, and the premier ordered workers to speed up to save more people.

At a factory which had suffered severe damage, Wen Jiabao told local officials to send more food.



Premier Wen said, "Food has to be transported quickly. The kids have nothing to eat now. Don't cry, food will come soon. Somebody will bring you biscuits and powdered milk, right away. "

Wen Jiabao encouraged workers to stay positive.

Wen Jiabao said, "The rescue team will soon arrive. They are professional. We'll do our best to rescue stranded people. The severe natural disaster has cost us a lot. Now we're at the crucial stage of fighting the quake and continuing disaster relief. We need to be calm, confident and united to achieve success. Our top priority is saving lives and rescuing those trapped."

Wen Jiabao arrived in Dujiangyan Monday afternoon, about four hours after the earthquake struck.

Relief work to shift to reconstruction




Earthquake relief work has entered a "new stage", with more efforts to be focused on resettlement and post-quake reconstruction in damaged areas. The earthquake relief headquarters under the State Council made the decision at a meeting on Tuesday, presided over by Premier Wen Jiabao.

Premier Wen Jiabao reiterated the importance of the "people-first" policy. He said the main tasks in the next phase of the relief operation include treating the injured, resettling survivors, preventing epidemics, restoring production, rebuilding damaged infrastructure, and keeping social stability in disaster-hit areas.


It was agreed that efforts to search for survivors should continue, but more importance should be attached to resettlement, the restoration of production and reconstruction.

The meeting has called for more epidemic experts to be sent to all villages in the quake zones for disease prevention. It says inoculation for people vulnerable to infectious diseases should be carried out as soon as possible.

The meeting says local authorities must properly handle the aftermath of those killed and care for those affected by the quake, urging sufficient supplies of makeshift accommodation, especially for people in remote mountainous areas. The production of 900 thousand tents and one million makeshift houses has already been assigned to specific provinces and enterprises. The meeting also called for the production 500 thousand more makeshift houses.

It urges quake relief forces to address the threat posed by the swelling earthquake-induced Tangjiashan Lake to downstream regions, citing it as one of the "most pressing jobs at hand".

The meeting says social order should be maintained in the quake zones, with the restoration of production and post-quake reconstruction to be planned in the meantime.

Hu talks with KMT chairman

President Hu Jintao met with Kuomintang Chairman Wu Poh-hsiung this Wednesday.

It was the first and also the highest-level contact across the Straits in six decades.

Hu pledged to resume cross-Straits dialogue at the earliest date. He also hoped the two sides would make efforts to build mutual trust, set aside disputes, seek consensus and jointly create a win-win situation.

The president added priority should be given to starting weekend passenger charter flights and allowing mainland tourists to visit Taiwan after the talks resume.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev made a speech at Peking University during his visit to China.

He said China-Russia relations are a major factor in global security. He added the two countries should jointly pursue technological innovation to help ease global challenges, like affordable energy resources, stabilizing financial markets and food security.

After his speech, Medvedev jokingly hoped Russian and Chinese athletes would win all the medals at the Olympics.

Russia will study the Beijing Games to prepare for the 2014 Winter Games to be held in Sochi.
