School students in Hangzhou city located in Zhejiang Province were assigned a special DIY project by their teachers, asking them to make “one-meter hats” with their parents at home and wear them on their first day of school as a new way of enforcing COVID-19 social distancing.
The students can be seen wearing their creations, which are made out of cardboard and balloons used to create balloon animals.
China Global TV Network (CGTN) shared photos of the pupils on their first day back at school on April 26 after spending months at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sun reported the school’s vice-principal Hong Feng asked the students to wear the hats to keep three feet away from other students and limit the spread of COVID-19.
“This was our own creative idea,” Hong Feng told local media.
“It helps us promote our slogan: ‘Wear a one-metre hat, keep a one-metre distance.'”
