Situated in the deep area of Taihang Mountain of north China's Shanxi Province, Huangyadong school is a nine-year school providing primary education and middle school, which is also a football boarding school in rural area. Huangyadong school now has 19 classes and over 660 students. There are a boy's football team and a girl's football team in each class. Every student has their own football. Every day, students run for 40 minutes to warm up in the morning, do football exercises at 10 o'clock and practise football for an hour after school on school's professional artifical-turf football pitch funded by the government in 2017. An atmosphere favorable for football grows stronger and stronger in recent years. The principal of Huangyadong school Wang Jingyu said: "Children enjoy football very much and football takes a great part in children's lives. Football help students develop a habit of exercising and the spirit of competition and cooperation." (Xinhua/Zhan Yan)
