On July 24, 2023, students from Class 3 of Jiangsu Province Zhenze High School Second Grade visited the Six Arts Museum in Lili Ancient Town, Suzhou, to participate in a summer social practice activity.
Since its establishment in 1923, Jiangsu Zhenze High School has relocated three times and changed its name six times.
In 1979, it was listed as one of the first key high schools in Jiangsu Province. In 2004, it was promoted to a four-star regular high school in Jiangsu Province. It is known as a "showcase school" and a "leading school" among ordinary high schools in the region. The school has nurtured numerous outstanding students.
LiLi Ancient Town has a rich cultural heritage, and the Six Arts Museum is located here. With its extensive collection, the museum showcases a series of traditional Chinese folk artworks to the public. It serves as a social practice base for students and young residents in the Wujiang District of Suzhou.
Traditional old and antique objects not only showcase Chinese folk art,
but also carry many Chinese cultural stories. They serve as a window for young people to understand traditional Chinese culture and are important teaching materials for cultural heritage education among the youth.
During this visit, the students of Class 3 Second Grade from Zhenze High School, accompanied by their instructor, Mr. Li Haimin, who is a well known scholar in the LiLi Ancient Town, not only received an introduction to LiLi Ancient Town from him, but also had an opportunity to listen to his explanations about the Six Arts Museum.
Through this summer practice activity, the students not only appreciated the exquisite beauty of ancient folk art, but also gained a deep understanding of the profoundness of Chinese traditional culture. They have developed new insights into the inheritance of traditional culture.
