A group of volunteers from the Ningbo Foreign Affairs School recently joined in promotion of the Maritime Silk Road culture held in two local communities in Haishu district, Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province.
Ten of them from Romania gave singing and dancing performances at the activity and received warm applause from local residents.
They also learned about traditional Chinese painting at the Red Peony Academy of Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, a local base for international cultural exchanges, after the activity.

Aged 15 on average, these Romanian students are studying at the Sino-Romanian (Deva) International Art School, an overseas branch of the Ningbo Foreign Affairs School in Romania.
They came to Ningbo a week ago to study at the home campus for one and a half months. The school offered such courses as Chinese language, calligraphy, history and shadow boxing to help them learn more about Chinese culture and the folk customs of Ningbo.
One of them expressed her love for Chinese culture, saying it was her second time to visit China and that she and many of her classmates planned to come again for college studies.
