    IMAGINATION AND A THIRST FOR LEARNING ARE TWO ATTRIBUTES OF CHILDREN.

    HERE ARE SOME SHOTS OF HOW CHILDREN ARE BEING BROUGHT UP IN NEW CHINA.

    TEACHERS OF A PRIMARY SCHOOL ATTACHED TO THE SHANGHAI MUSIC CONSERVATORY ARE BUSILY TRAINING FUTURE MUSICIANS.

    TSU YI-CHING AND TSAI YUN-FANG ARE ONLY NINE YEARS OLD, HAVE ONLY EIGHT MONTHS' TRAINING BUT THEY ALREADY CAN PLAY 90 MUSIC COMPOSITION.

    HSU HUNG-NI AND LU HAU???HSI ARE SKILLED IN PLAYING THE 'PI PA' ALTHOUGH THEY'VE ONLY BEEN STUDYING ITS PLAYING TECHNIQUE FOR LESS THAN A YEAR.

    MOST OF THE STUDENTS AT THIS SCHOOL ARE WORKERS' CHILDREN. THEIR TALENT IS GIVEN EVERY CHANCE TO DEVELOP. THE CHILDREN ARE FREE TO TAKE PART IN WHATEVER SPARETIME ACTIVITIES THEY LIKE. HERE, A DANCE SCHOOL IS BUSILY REHEARSING.

    NOW LET'S SEE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT PRE-SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN DO. TO DEVELOP THEIR INTELLIGENCE AND AROUSE THEIR INTEREST, THE KINDERGARTEN RUN BY THE PEKING CENTRAL WEATHER BUREAU HAS ORGANISED A NATURE STUDY CLASS FOR THE YOUNGSTERS.

    TODAYS SUBJECT IS ABOUT ANIMALS. THE CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT THE BEHAVIOUR AND HABITS OF DIFFERENT ANIMALS BY GOING TO THE ZOO AND FROM EXPLANATIONS GIVEN BY THEIR TEACHER. THEY OFTEN DRAW PICTURES OF THEIR FAVOURITE ANIMALS. OF COURSE, THE OLDER CHILDREN CAN DRAW BETTER THAN THE YOUNGER ONES.

    HANDICRAFT ARE ANOTHER FAVOURITE OF SOME CHINESE CHILDREN. AT THE PRIMARY SCHOOL ATTACHED TO THE FIRST NORMAL SCHOOL IN SHANGHAI, THE GIRLS LIKE TO SPEND THEIR SPARE TIME EMBROIDERING. THE CHILDREN ARE BUSY PLAITING FLOWERS, INSECTS AND BIRDS WITH IMAGINATION. CHILDREN WHO LIKE WATER-SPORTS ARE HAVING A GRAND TIME. THIS IS CANTON -- A METROPOLIS IN SPUTH CHINA. THE CITY'S 7 SWIMMING RESORTS RECEIVE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN EVERY DAY. THE SAILING CLUB IS A GOOD PLACE TO GO ON HOLIDAYS FOR CHILDREN WHO LIKE MOTOR BOATING.

    CHEN MU-CHIN HAS LEARNED TO HANDLE A SPEED BOAT VERY WELL. AND NOW - SOCCER. THE SOCCER TEAM OF THE AUGUST FIRST PRIMARY SCHOOL IN PEKING HAS EARNED QUITE A NAME FOR ITSELF. THE TEAM HAS A GOOD TRAINING PROGRAMME. THIS TEAM WAS CHAMPION IN A CITY-WIDE FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT FOR CHILDREN HELD AT THE BEGINNING IF THE YEAR. A GENERATION OF HEALTHY, LIVELY CHILDREN IS GROWING UP IN NEW CHINA. THEYNARE DEVELOPING WELL MORALLY, INTELLECTUALLY AND PHYSICALLY.
