Credo High School, a Waldorf-inspired school in Rohnert Park, on Monday hosted a class of students visiting from the Chengdu Waldorf School in the Szechwan Province of China.

Credo, in its first year of operation, offers Mandarin classes to its students.

“We are committed to preparing our students to be world citizens, and making friends with Chinese students who have the Waldorf curriculum in common is a significant step,” school director Chip Romer said in a statement about Monday’s event. “Our Mandarin students have been hard at work sharpening their conversation skills in hopes of having an authentic and meaningful exchange with the Chinese visitors in their own language.”

Romer described the event where 10 Chinese students and four teachers visited Credo’s Mandarin class, performed traditional arts and talked about Chinese calligraphy as powerful and fun.
