Because it was the first time of us to participate in webpage production competition, everything is hard in the beginning. We had little experience, thanks to the enthusiastic help of Qianxiangwancai technology Co, Ltd’s staffs and the support of leading teachers, the activity can develop smoothly. However, the following works met troubles again. Because the school is far away from city subdivision with no convenient transport, if we ride on bicycle, there are great potential safety hazards. So at last, we decided to go out by bus.
