The history of Xin-Min elementary school

@

Fourteen years ago, Tianzhong elementary school was the only elementary school around the area of Tianzhong Township, and it faced the problem of student over-populate. Therefore, in order to solve the problem of too many students, the Changhua County Government decided to found a new school.

Special credit to the support of Changhua County Magistrate and Changhua County Council, the school only spend half amount of time, money and man power compare to the other eleentary school in Changhua. In order for Xin-Min Elementary School to become the new generation elementary school in Changhua, the local governments, Changhua Education Bureau, professors and Le-jing Jiang the architect have both make great efforts to allow Xin-Min Elementary School to be founded in a very short amount of time. The design is extraordinary with sustainable materials which are qualified to be name as the green campus. In addition, wardens that are close to Xin-Min Elementary School have also put in enormous amount of resources to help establish Xin-Min elementary school.    

Tianzhong Township is a great place, it is surrounded by mountains and the people here are kind and generous. In Xin-Min Elementary School we believe education is the best investment in determining the future of children, let us work together to ensure our kids can become the best in the near future.

The school architectural planning

@

The architect Le-jing Jiang had decided to design Xin-Min Elementary School by combining the countryside flair and modern inspiration together. She conceptualised the traditional San-Ho-Yuan style into school design. The idea of San-Ho-Yuan also implied the meaning of gathering, gaming and running. The architect hoped that the student can enjoy their childhoods in a stress-free atmosphere. The music programs play an important role in the school curriculum, so she visualized that students can be seen everywhere with a musical instrument and random playing, in the bridge, in the corridor, and in any space where you can feel comfortable.

Since the elevation of the base is much lower than the road surface, under the concept of reducing the cost of the project and minimising the damage to the base. Therefore, we decided to leave the pond in the central area and the natural plants around it. We believed that this will provide our student the chance to experience the mother natural.
