Students from a Macao primary school hailed President Xi Jinping’s reply letter
delivered to them before International Chil
dren’s Day, and they pledged to live up to
Xi’s expectations by passing on the traditions of loving Macao and the country.
In the library of the Hou Kong Premier School Affiliated to Hou Kong Middle
School in Macao, students clapped after hearing Xi’s letter.
Hou Kong Middle School, established in
1932, was the first to raise a national flag in Macao on Oct 1, 1949.
“I am so excited to receive a reply,” said fifth-grader Dang Wingzi, one of the stude
nts who wrote the initial letter to Xi. “I will study hard to be able to better serve the country.”
