Two primary schools in Songjiang honored for their folk art courses

Songjiang’s Sijing No.2 Primary School and Xiaokunshan Primary School have won the title of National Cultural and Art Heritage Middle and Primary Schools, according to a list published by the Ministry of Education recently.

The two schools are honored due to their teaching in dough figurine and Shanghai-styled paper-cutting respectively.

Sijing No.2 Primary School has introduced dough figurine lessons for two decades. A course system has been developed for children to better understand the folk art. 

Xiaokunshan School has combined paper-cutting with other course learning as well as encouraged students to be creative. Their artworks have won a number of awards in the city-level paper-cutting competitions.
