Thousands of high school students kowtow to their parents in 'appreciation'

More than 2000 Chinese high school students kowtowed on a playground in a show of appreciation for their parents.

The bizarre moment, shot in Jiaozuo City in central Henan Province on November 19, shows thousands of students in their school uniforms standing next to their parents sitting on chairs in rows on a playground.

Then they kneel down and prostrated themselves on the ground facing their parents, at a speaker’s command.

Several parents can be seen trying to use their hands to wipe the tears on their faces.

According to reports, it was an event held by Qingyang No.1 High School to mark the 200-day countdown of the university entrance exam.
