A new semester kicked off at the Chinese School Dubai in the United Arab Emirates on Aug 29, a school launched by the Ministry of Education and run by Hangzhou, the capital of East China's Zhejiang province.

Upon arriving at the school, students received warm greetings from teachers and their fellows, signed their names on a signature wall, attended orientations on their respective classes, and expressed their anticipation for the new semester.

The Chinese School Dubai, the first full-time Chinese school authorized by MOE overseas, was established to offer quality Chinese educational resources to Chinese citizens in the UAE, overseas Chinese, and UAE citizens.

Statistics from April 2016 show that the number of Chinese people living in Dubai at that time was approaching 270,000, with nearly 10,000 children.

Children there once struggled with Chinese language and Chinese cultural immersion as there was neither a specific Chinese school nor adequate Chinese language classes offered at local international schools.

Hangzhou No 2 High School was appointed to solve the problem. The school is a time-honored educational brand which not only launched the first K-12 education in Zhejiang province in August 2002 that matched US curriculum standards, but has also educated some 500 children from over 30 countries and regions.
