The Day 'Thanksgiving' Came to School in China
2006-01-12 11:50:48    Shanghai Daily
To give thanks is a theme in the moral education of students today. Educators have tried various ways to arouse feelings of thankfulness in minds of young students.

Look at teenagers today. If they do not have a cell phone, MP3 player, a computer and a substantial allowance, they consider that they are not loved. At the very moment when they should be truly thankful, they are not. Thankfulness has long been forgotten when some things, such as life and love, are a given.

On the last day of 2005, students of the High School Attached to East China Normal University held their annual end-of-year party, and made "Thanksgiving" the party theme.

At the end of the party, the chairman of the Students' Union asked for donations to help five poor students from the Gelao nationality in Guizhou Province who get back to study in Zhuishui High School.

Everyone present made a contribution and it was really amazing to see how much more thankful the students could be when things they took for granted did not exist because of social inequality.
