College entrance exams in Sichuan province are approaching fast and workers are setting up temporary buildings for the students.

This is a ceremony to celebrate the delivery of temporary houses to be used as exam rooms for students. Tianjin municipality supplied the buildings to Zhongjiang County. The May 12th earthquake ruined over 500-thousand square meters of teaching buildings in the county. After receiving the order, construction workers from Tianjin worked around the clock to quickly build 205 mobile houses for the students.

A student from Zhongjiang High School said, "When seeing the new houses built by uncles and unties from Tianjin, we were so happy. We feel our dreams have been built as well."

More than 500 temporary school buildings for Mianyang City were recently completed by Liaocheng City of Shangdong Province.

In Mianyang High School, each exam room is equipped with an air-conditioner. On July the 3rd, over 15,000 students will sit their exams here.

Another 800 temporary houses donated by Shanghai municipality are also ready. These houses will ensure the 7,900 examinees can sit their exam in Santai County, Mianyang City.
