GUANGZHOU, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Surrounded by dense residential buildings, the Guangzhou No. 10 Middle School decided to "develop vertically" to solve the problem of the insufficient sports field.

With the financial support from the government and donations from its alumni, the school built up a sports field on top of its teaching building with all the necessary installations like protective net, artificial turf, illumination device, etc.
