Wake up! Time for a new semester

Children donning traditional Chinese uniforms attend the First Writing Ceremony to start their first day of the semester at the Confucius Temple elementary school in Nanjing, East China’s Jiangsu province, September 1. The First Writing Ceremony, also called the Qi Meng (Enlightenment) Ceremony, was a very important ceremony for every student before they were admitted to school in ancient China. Teachers usually gave them a red dot on their forehead to open the “wisdom eye”. [Xu Qi/Asianewsphoto.com]
