The Chinese School Dubai, or Hangzhou No 2 High School Dubai School, recently opened a student fine art exhibition to celebrate International Children's Day on June 1.
More than 300 works by students were exhibited, Chinese paintings of Arab customs and oil paintings of traditional Chinese flowers.
Prince Mur Juma Maktoum, a member of the royal family of Dubai, accompanied by China's Consul General in Dubai Li Xuhang, visited the exhibition and carried out cultural exchanges with students.
As the first full-time overseas Chinese international school operated by the Ministry of Education, the Chinese School Dubai welcomed the first group of students in the fall of 2020.

The school is committed to offering high-quality Chinese-style education for overseas Chinese families in Dubai and helping them prepare for overseas studies or applying to mainland universities.
The administrative committee consists of authorities from the education bureau of Hangzhou, the Chinese consulate in Dubai, and leading Chinese-invested enterprises in Dubai.
The Hangzhou No 2 High School has adopted a student-centered model, with each class enrolling no more than 24 students. The curriculum includes both traditional subjects from China's education system and extra international courses such as Arabic, sociology, and ethics.
