FENU students took part in the SCO student forum

Svetlana Ganina and Svetlana Sheikina, students of the Far Eastern State Transport University, returned to Khabarovsk from Shanghai, China. There, the girls became the only representatives of the Far East at the prestigious student forum of the member countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The SCO was founded by the leaders of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in 2001. As reported by RIA Vostok-Media, currently under the auspices of this international association in the autonomous region of Inner Mongolia in the north of the PRC, the largest military exercises in the history of the organization are underway.

According to Sergey Khamzin, the head of the press service of the Far Eastern State University of Transport and Communications, in Shanghai, representatives of the Khabarovsk University took part in the Summer Courses 2014 program. They were organized by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission on the basis of the East China Normal University, located in the largest Chinese metropolis. In addition to students from Central Asia and Belarus, this project was attended by young people from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ulan-Ude, Irkutsk and Khabarovsk.

The participants of the Shanghai Summer School tightened their knowledge of the Chinese language. Experienced masters showed them some techniques of the ancient art of calligraphy.

Students also prepared presentations for each country participating in the SCO. “Russian Day” lasted as many as two stages. Its "official" part was attended by the Consul General of Russia in China Sergey Smorodin, the rector of the East China Pedagogical University Ren Yutsun, and others.

Then students from Russia demonstrated to their fellow students from other countries what “Russian hospitality” really is. They baked pancakes, entertained their guests with folk games and songs.

As Svetlana Ganina and Svetlana Sheikina told, during the Shanghai courses all the participants of the program were able to deeply immerse themselves in the essence of Chinese culture: they comprehended the secrets of the Beijing opera, mastered the art of sculpting figurines from sticky rice and drawing paintings with molten sugar.

In total, 38 students from the SCO member states took part in the work of the Shanghai Summer School.
