Helping Education

Date: Nov 2012

The Qingshan Primary School was inaugurated on 20 November 2012 in the presence of the Consul General of the Swiss Consulate in Guangzhou, Lonza Group and China management team members, and key local government officials. The inauguration ceremony was a joyful event, with pupils and teachers clearly thrilled about the improved teaching facilities.

The ceremonies featured speeches from honored guests, gifts to pupils, the unveiling of the new school name and a talismanic lion dance. These two school projects enjoy continuous support through teaching programs offered by Lonza employee volunteers. They actually started giving English and computer lessons during the ceremony. A great experience was certainly the science class, in which a Lonza R&D specialist provided fascinating insights into the world of chemistry.

As Dr. Beat In-Albon, COO, Lonza, said in his opening speech: “Over the years, Lonza has actively contributed to constructing a harmonious society in China by engaging in a variety of corporate citizenship activities. By helping children to get a good education, which they also enjoy, we hope to awaken their interest in science and technology and nurture tomorrow’s scientists and engineers for China, and perhaps even for Lonza China.”

As part of its 2012 sponsorship activities, Lonza donated money to the Qingshan Primary School for a new three-story building, the renovation of the existing two-story building and the playground, and the establishment of a new computer room, a science lab, a library, a multipurpose room, and more.
