Introduction to Mianyang Jingzhong Street Primary School
Initially known as Mianyang Jingzhong Street Primary School, Mianyang Jingzhong Street Sino-Singapore Friendship Family School is a government-owned school in Sichuan Province that is engaged in compulsory education. When our school was founded at Changjiaxiang in 1945 it had only 4 classes. In 1950, the school moved to its current location at downtown Mianyang at 43 Jingzhong Street, also known as Huang’s Memorial Hall. By virtue of historical and cultural evolution over the past 75 years, and with the particular influence of China’s education reform, our school has become a renown and respected institution in Mianyang. We now have 30 classes, over 1800 students and 90 plus teachers.
Our Motto: To Cultivate Talents with Kindness
Our Goal: To Cherish Kind Hearts, Perform Kind Deeds and Cultivate Kind People
Our Principle: To Pursue Kindness, Truth and Beauty
Our Features (see below):
Our school has been awarded the status of National Foreign Language Education School and also of English Teaching Experimental Primary School. Our faculty has shared our experiences with colleagues at many English education seminars, and we once won high praise from Mr. Jeff Wright, Principal of Jenks East Primary School in USA during his visit to our school.
Our school was nominated as Table Tennis Training School in Sichuan province as early as 1992. In the aftermath of the massive earthquake on May 12, 2008, the Singapore-based “Continuous Love” relief team has helped us build a unique underground table tennis training center of 1,434 square meters. We have made great use of the new space to train our students in table tennis. From the fall semester of 2010, we have offered table tennis training courses to all students in Grades 3 through 6. Every year our school will send 10 young talents to schools at higher levels. So far, 25 of our students have been recruited by table tennis teams at national or provincial levels, as well as by famous universities including Beijing University, Fudan University and Sichuan University. Eight of our students are on the Sichuan Table Tennis Team and three are in National No.2 Table Tennis Team. Most notably, Zhu Yuling from our school has been recruited into the National No. 1 Table Tennis Team in 2011, and she is going to train with famous sportsmen like Guo Yue in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

As our teaching complex suffered severe damages in the massive earthquake on May 12, 2008, the Mianyang Fucheng District Government authorized us to build a new complex on the same site. Our school’s reconstruction was fully funded with kind donations from Singapore-based “Continuous Love” Disaster Relief Team. This Turnkey Project was completely designed and constructed by our friends in Singapore. With a total investment amounting RMB16, 150,000. and a construction area of 8,373.27 square meters, it is designed to be resistant to earthquakes up to 7.0 on the Richter Scale. This complex can house 30 classes and 1800 students. Its functional design is in compliance with national “Dual-First Class” standards. In light of the limit of the construction area, the new underground table tennis center can also be used for evacuation in emergencies. So that our students might always remember the kind deeds of our loving friends from Singapore, above the new building hangs two boards, namely, Mianyang Jingzhong Street Primary School and Mianyang Jingzhong Street Sino-Singapore Friendship Family School.
