It is a nine-year school with 2,710 students and 135 teachers. Principal Yin Shoufu said that doing cleanings can not only improve the environment of campus, cultivate the habits of hard work and staying healthy, but also help to prevent and control the epidemic and ensure the health of teachers and students. Therefore, the “first lesson” starts with doing a cleaning.
