Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin, Together with Yongsheng Primary School, Unveils New Playground in Launching Ceremony

On 9 September 2016, one day before Teacher’s Day, Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin, together with the teachers and students of Yongsheng Primary School, held a special opening ceremony to launch the school’s new playground. With smiles on their faces, the students were full of vigour and excited to welcome the new semester.
The children, whose red scarfs fluttered in their chests, looked at the bright five-star red flag rising at the beginning of the ceremony.  Led by the general managers from Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin and Songbei Shangri-La, Harbin, members of hotel’s Embrace project watched the flag rise slowly and fly in the blue sky.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was conducted in a joyful atmosphere.  Students representing the school carried trays with balls and stood beside their big friends from both Shangri-La hotels.  When the ribbons were cut using golden scissors, the new playground was launched officially.  The audience burst into warm applause. The children have finally achieved their long-standing desire to have a new and beautiful playground.
Since 2014, when Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin started its Embrace project with Yongsheng Primary School, the hotel has committed to improving the school’s campus environment and teaching equipment, and has put in effort to create opportunities to help the children broaden their horizon.  The hotel has added a campus radio system for the school, purchased bookshelves and books for each grade, brought the children to the space museum and the university, and invited the children to participate in various activities in the past two years. 
The launch of the new playground has granted the children’s greatest wish.  Two years ago, the school’s playground was in a bad condition due to disrepair, strong winds and rain erosion.  The bricks were exposed and the surface of the old playground was not even.  The students often fell and twisted their feet.  There was a lot of weed in spring and it was very muddy during the rainy season.  The children no longer have to worry about those again.
As an active performer of corporate social responsibility, Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin will continue to deliver love and create a better growing environment for the children of Yongsheng Primary School.
