“My daugh­ter cares very much about this home­work. Every time she goes out­side, she looks for the na­tional flag.”

So said a Bei­jing res­i­dent sur­named Wu. Dur­ing China’s Na­tional Day hol­i­day last week, Wu’s daugh­ter, a seven-year old pupil at Shi­jing­shan Ping­guoyuan Sec­ond Pri­mary School, had a spe­cial home­work: take pho­tos with the na­tional flag and share the pics with class­mates in a WeChat group. Ac­cord­ing to Wu, every time they went out and saw a na­tional flag, her daugh­ter felt very happy and asked her to take a photo. Wu said it is a good idea to cul­ti­vate Chi­nese chil­dren’s feel­ings of pa­tri­o­tism. (Source: Bei­jing Morn­ing Post)
