A precious gift from China
The book donor Luo Delong (right) looking at the precious goods that have just arrived from China.
A book is a garden carried in your pocket, an old Chinese proverb says. If we take that literally, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur International School in Manosque will soon be covered by lush vegetation. Several hundred Chinese children's books were recently been donated by the Chinese Domestic Agency (CN-DA) and personally handed over to the school's headmaster Jean-Paul Clement.
Unpacking the many boxes required many hands, including those of Director Jean-Paul Clement (third from left).
The delegation that helped school staff unpack the many boxes filled with precious content was led by Luo Delong, Deputy Director-General of CN-DA; Zhang Fenglan, deputy headmaster of the Beijing Middle School Nr.8; the responsible officer for Internal Cooperation within the CN-DA, He Kaihui; and Zhao Wen from the Divison for General Affairs.
