More than 300 international students and teachers from the International Cultural Exchange School at Donghua University (DHU) celebrated New Year together at Donghua Restaurant on Dec 30, 2016.

Different from former parties that mainly focused on student talent shows, this party began with a variety of singing and dancing performances from teachers.

The most eye-catching was a hulusi (cucurbit flute) show from two veteran teachers. Their passionate performance and the clear and crispy melodies emanating from the delicate instrument won praise and applause from the audience.

Twenty-six teachers also received a special New Year's gift from the students – the title of "The Best Teacher in My Eyes", which was selected from hundreds of votes from the overseas students. The warm and sweet gift recognized the teachers’ hard work and devotion over the past year.

Following up was a hearty New Year's buffet dinner, along with various cultural shows spicing up the atmosphere, such as making Kung Fu Tea, bracelets and fancy marshmallows.

Lucky draws were also held on the sidelines.
