「竹」(bamboo) in Minnan language pronounced the same as 「德」(virtue)

Giving the graduated teachers- in- training a piece of bamboo symbolically giving them 'virtue' (a high moral standard) -- to reminder them to live a virtuous life and teach moral lessons to their own students.

師資培訓授竹典禮 = Teacher qualifications training 'bamboo award' ceremony
