The works (teachers) that our school participated in online exhibitions include: "Song and Songs", "Paper Fan Scholars", "Avalokitesvara with Thousand Hands", and "Dancers in the Current Epidemic" "Lonicera". Through the online format, this event focuses on the people who continue to fight for the epidemic, conveys the determination to overcome the difficulties and hopes for the future, and spreads the excellent Chinese culture to the British people through the form of art, reflecting the friendly exchanges between China and Britain. The cooperative relationship will deepen the cultural exchanges between the two schools and contribute to the development of Sino-British friendship and the development of relations between the two countries to celebrate the Spring Festival, a traditional Chinese holiday.

The epidemic has temporarily slowed the pace of people going abroad, but it cannot stop the pace of international cultural exchanges. During the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations, China and other countries have carried out in-depth cultural and artistic exchanges through online activities. We are in the same boat, watching and helping each other, blessing each other, hand in hand, love without boundaries, and look forward to the gloom as soon as possible. We will finally usher in the victory of the global fight against the epidemic.
