Little Confucius celebrate new school term

Posted on

To celebrate the new school term at Fuzimiao Primary School, over 150 young pupils attended a ceremony at Nanjing’s Confucius Temple.

All children had dressed up in traditional costumes as the ancient philosopher Confucius and were learning how to study the character 人Rén (meaning person).

Smiles and excitement were abundant as the children were seen banging the temple’s drum and having a red dot painted on their forehead to represent ‘opening the wisdom eye’.

This celebration is held annually for children to officially start their school life.
