Beijing, 3 December 2016 – the spirit of Christmas came alive at Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing, during its annual tree lighting ceremony. On the day, the hotel invited students from Beijing Qiyin Experimental School for the Deaf to perform carols for the hotel guests, media friends and staff members, who all joined together to spread holiday cheer. The annual charity drive featured creative paintings by the hearing-impaired students, which were sold to raise funds for Beijing Qiyin Experimental School for the Deaf. All in attendance had a jolly time and were reminded that the best way to share the true spirit of the season is by giving love from the heart to those around them.
Beijing Qiyin Experimental School for the Deaf was founded in 1959 as the successor of Beijing Second School for the Deaf and Beijing Fourth School for the Deaf. It is a well-equipped specialised school with excellent faculty and a good reputation for hearing-impaired children’s rehabilitation and study. The school is comprised of a rehabilitation preschool, primary school, junior middle school, senior middle school and vocational high school that teach curriculum on computer science, art, calligraphy, handicraft, pastry, cooking, tea ceremony, cocktails, hairdressing, science, chemistry, biology and other subjects.
Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing, has been a corporate social responsibility partner of Beijing Qiyin Experimental School for the Deaf since March 2014. In the past three years, the hotel has actively taken part in this worthwhile cause by organising a series of meaningful activities, such as planting trees, a charity sale, framing paintings, postcard making and building birdhouses. The hotel has also donated over 70,000 and offered more than 100 students show platforms and job or internship opportunities.
