In order to raise pupils’ interest of exploring the richness of traditional Chinese culture, the Mandarin Department organized a cultural trip for pupils of Year 10 (Mandarin learners) to visit Yangliuqing Museum in Yangliuqing Town of Tianjin on April 26th, 2017.
Yangliuqing Museum also known as The Residence of The Shi Family is the former residence of Shi Yuanshi, the 4th son of Shi Wancheng, one of the eight great masters in Tianjin. Now it serves as the folk custom museum, which has a large collection of folk art pieces like Yangliuqing New Year pictures and brick sculptures. Yangliuqing New Year Picture is one of the three famous New Year Pictures in China, which first appeared in Yangliuqing Town in 17th century.
The tour benefited our pupils by bringing them closer to traditional Chinese culture.
