A high school in Enshi city, central China’s Hubei province, has held a parade through the city’s busy streets to celebrate their student winning the first place in this year’s national college entrance exam, or gaokao, in Enshi city. After the pictures of the event were uploaded online recently, it has aroused controversy.
Four boys in school uniforms were seen holding up a billboard in the front of the parade that read “Warm congratulations to the student Yang Yuan from Laifeng High School being the champion in the science category in Enshi region by scoring 668 in the 2012 national college entrance exam.”
Then a boy wearing a big red ribbon on his chest standing in the car through the sunroof followed behind. And dozens of drummers staged drumming performance at the end.
The principal of the Hight School of Laifeng County, Enshi City, later confirmed the celebration, with hundreds of students and teachers participating voluntarily. He said that the school hired the drummers and borrowed the car from a friend.
