The photo taken on September 11 shows a special “first writing” ceremony held at the Confucius Temple located in Qianzhou Ancient Town, Jishou. 
Qiancheng Primary School was founded in 1900. The new pupils dressed in Hanfu (Han-style costumes). They went through a series of Chinese traditional activities, including playing bamboo percussion instruments and Bianzhong (chime bells), beating drums and getting a red dot on forehead to open the wisdom eye, and tracing over characters to learn writing.
