Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin, Together with Yongsheng Primary School Held a New Playground 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 their new playground. With smiles on their faces, the students were full of vigor to welcome the new semester.
 
The children, whose red scarfs fluttering 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, the members of hotel embrace project watched the flag raising slowly and flying in the blue sky.
 
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was conducted in a joy atmosphere. The representatives of good students who carried the tray with balls, stood beside their big friends from Shangri-La Hotels. When the ribbons were cut by golden scissors, the new playground were launched officially. The audience bursted into warm applause. The children have finally achieved their long-standing desire to own a new and beautiful playground!
 
Since 2014, when Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin started their embrace project with Yongsheng Primary School, the hotel is committed to improving the school’s campus environment and teaching equipment, and make effort to create opportunities  for the children to broaden their horizons. The hotel added a campus radio system for the school, purchased bookshelves and books for each grade, brought children to the space museum and the university, and invited children to participate in various activities in two years. 
 
The launch of the new playground completed the greatest wish of the children. 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 are a lot of weeds in spring and very muddy in rainy season.  The children no longer have to worry about it again!
 
As an active performer of corporate social responsibility, Shangri-La Hotel, Harbin will continue to deliver love and create a better growing environment to the children of Yongsheng Primary School.
