The Promise Made under the National Flag Ten Years Ago
The school fell into ruins after the "5.12 Wenchuan earthquake". It was the only primary school in this area with a population of more than 40,000. Consequently, under the flying national flag, Landsea promised the teachers and students of Wuquan to build a "quake-proof" school in a time of crisis in 2008. In such severe situation, Landsea sent "the Eagle" to assist them in reconstructing their school. Later, the school was renamed "Landsea Wuquan Hope Primary School of Wangcang County".
Landsea Wuquan Hope Primary School
After the reconstruction, Landsea also promised to provide long-term funds and aid the students. For example, excellent students will be given the opportunity to visit the city where Landsea locates and outstanding teachers can have exchange trains, etc.
With the support of the community, we have been keeping our promise in the past ten years: We carried out many projects to assist the school, such as "one-on-one" Help plan, scholarship scheme, teacher training and students exchange. By the end of 2017, we have invested more than RMB 11 million in facilities and totally 630 students benefited from the “one-on-one” Help plan. We also injected RMB 829,000 in student grant and RMB 210,000 to award outstanding teachers. We have organized teachers and students to visit their sister schools in the Yangtze river delta for many times.
A New Look in the Past Ten Years
In only 88 days, the Eagle team finished the first phase project, saving a lot of time. Teaching buildings, library, canteen, dormitory and other facilities needed that can withstand the 8-magnitude earthquake were all in place. It was a warm shelter for the students to avoid the coming winter. Ten years have past, this school is not only the first school put into use after the earthquake but is also the rural school with the most complete facilities and the best teaching conditions in the city.

On the meeting, school leaders introduced the development of the school in the past ten years to the visiting guests. The school was awarded many times by the government, such as "Outstanding Organization" (for four times from 2009 to 2013), "Safe Campus in Guangyuan" (in 2017) and "Outstanding Grassroots Party Organization" (for ten consecutive years). The school has also won the second prize in the Recitation Contest of Chinese Classic in 2018.
