Wujing Primary School
In the third school, the size of each classroom was relatively standard with identical lighting design. Each classroom was equipped with five energy-saving bulbs. On the ceiling, we noticed traces of previously installed fixture lights.
Unfortunately, the energy-saving bulbs with a maximum power of 85W still don’t provide enough light for the entire classroom.
In this primary school, we had the chance to teach students about light and illumination. It has been such a rewarding experience to see the enthusiasm and curiosity of the students. The children actively participated in the illustration and experiment.
Towards the end when we said goodbye to the students, two children cried. In the beginning, I didn’t quite understand why there was such a strong emotion, but I later realized that the children saw us as teachers, and they treasured the attention we gave them.
The lighting infrastructure of the schools in Shangri-La is inadequate. The brightness and evenness of the illumination level hadn’t been considered. There was a clear need for improved lighting.
We will continue to take up more activities and projects to improve the poor lighting condition in underserved schools – and hence enable a better learning environment and a brighter future.
