A volunteer group from the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC), located in Southwest China's Chongqing, recently visited the city's Renhejie Primary School to offer adolescent health education to fifth-graders there.

The group, led by Shi Yingwu, secretary of the committee for discipline inspection of the CQHCWC, was made up of 16 Party members from different departments of the Qixinggang branch.

Divided into two venues for boys and girls, the activity aimed to improve students' understanding of adolescence, teach them about health concepts, and enhance their self-protection awareness.

Party members Luo Hong and Jing Shuangwei gave lectures explaining what adolescence is, what changes occur during adolescence, health care related to adolescence, and desires during adolescence.

Children asked questions and professional advice was offered to them. Students also received gifts from the volunteer group.

Students said that they learned about the physiological and psychological changes that occur during adolescence as well as methods to deal with them and were now better prepared for adolescence.
