New name, new head for kindergarten

A kindergarten that was closed after many of its children were killed in a minibus crash in northwest China's Gansu Province reopened yesterday under a different name and with new management.

A total of 205 children went to the new Yulinzi Township Kindergarten accompanied by family members yesterday. The former Xiaoboshi (Little Doctor) Kindergarten used to house 737 pupils, the Qingyang City government said on its website.

But there was no bus to take the children to kindergarten yesterday.

"It will be more convenient for us with a school bus, but we just want the school to make sure the safety of our children," said Li Youfang, who took his four-year-old grandson to the new school on his bicycle.

Twenty-one people -19 children, a teacher and the bus driver - were killed and 43 others were injured last Wednesday morning when a nine-seat school bus with 64 people on board collided head-on in foggy conditions with a truck in Yulinzi Township in the city of Qingyang.
