There was also a playing station for preschool children to play fun interactive games. Many staff, students and parents dressed up in traditional clothing and made such a festive scene.


Children at four preschool sites(JINGBAO Bilingual Children’s Center) all dressed up in beautiful festive colors, performed songs and dances for the parents and guests.
