A Chinese nursery has come under fire for having pole dancers perform at its welcome ceremony, Southern Metropolis Daily newspaper, reports.
Horrified parents watched as young women took turns spinning around the pole like strippers in front of hundreds of students of Xinshahui Kindergarten in Shenzhen, on 3 September.
Michael Standaert, a freelance journalist currently based in China, first tweeted about the incident as he was dropping off his children after the summer break
The school’s nursery school director has now been sacked. The now jobless director, Lai Rong, explained in a lengthy apology that the routine was meant to provide some “atmosphere” for the parents and kids.
