This year, Banchang Elementary School marked its 70th anniversary and promised to carry on its educational spirit to make new and better achievements in the future.

The visit was a reflection of President Xi Jinping's emphasis that every child has “fair access to good education” which he stated in his work report delivered to the 19th National Congress of CPC, analysts said.
