  • Coming-of-age ceremony held for overseas Chinese youth

    On the morning of July 21, over 80 overseas Chinese youth from the US, Canada, Italy and Japan, dressed in the traditional Han costumes, gathered at the Peiju Library of Zhenhai District to participate in the coming-of-age ceremony and experience in person the Confucius culture.

    As an important part of the Ningbo calligraphy branch of the ¡°Trip in Search for Roots in China¡± Summer Camp, the ceremony kept to the traditional procedures of bathing, perfuming and wine sparkling. With the directions of the ceremony officer and the melodious music of the bells ringing, the honored guests were invited to carry out the capping (for boys) and hair-pinning (for girls) ceremony for the participating overseas Chinese youth. After the ceremony, the youth recited the extracts from ¡°the Great Learning¡± and prostrated themselves before the Confucius statue.

    The Confucius culture is the root of the Chinese culture and it is the duty of every Chinese home and abroad to inherit and spread the Chinese culture, said Yang Haopeng, a teacher from Canada. This occasion of the ceremony can give the youth an opportunity to have an insight into the content and essence of the Confucius culture, experience the Chinese civilization and history and cultivate the awareness of responsibility among the students.

    Reportedly, the Ningbo calligraphy branch of the 2017 Zhejiang ¡°Trip in Search for Roots in China¡± Summer Camp for the overseas Chinese youth is sponsored by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Zhejiang Province and the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Ningbo, and hosted by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Offices of Jiangbei District, Zhenhai District, Yinzhou District and Xiangshan County as well as Cihu Middle School.
