In Year 2022, he wrote “Ping An” (peace in Chinese) to wish everyone a prosperous and peaceful Chinese New Year ! This is also the 5th lunar year that the Minister has been writing on red paper in promoting traditional Chinese culture. Because it has been so popular for the past 4 lunar years, the red papers are regarded as a collection series by the public.
“First, parents must persevere. Once the learning has started and the student has given it up halfway through, he may give up anything in his life. On this note, learning an art to cultivate perseverance in him is more important than learning the art.” – Qing Hua University, Centre of the Arts Education, Head, Madam Zhao Hong.
