1. Description of Our Community
“Energetic and Sunny Taipei City----A Healthy Taipei” is the policy from ex mayor of Taipei, Mayor Ma. He hoped Taipei can stand continuously as the symbol of energy and health. The idea was to help the citizens to develop their self-awareness and ability to stay healthy. Therefore, those who put their efforts to make the city healthier and more energetic can be regarded as “Health Persona”, because they bring the elements of health to others. Many of these people have dedicated themselves without expecting returns, Mr. Sun Yue is one of them. By interviewing Mr. Sun Yue, we hope to let people recognize these heroes who have made the world different.
2. Summary of Our Project
“If you have good things, share them with your good friends.” This is a very famous slogan from Mr. Sun Yue. He used to be a very popular actor, but he decided to quit his career at the peak of his entertainment business to dedicate himself to be the volunteer for public welfare. He even set himself up to devote at least 8 months a year in the public welfare. We would like to know why he wanted to join public welfare force and what does this job mean to him. We hope our project could depict the wondrous life of Mr. Sun Yue’s, and through our report we could stimulate young students to take interest in the public welfare.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We have started this project since last August till February, and it took us a lot of time to prepare. It was also difficult to collect Mr. Sun Yue’s records, for example: pictures, commercials, films, and etc. However, with many organizations and companies’ help, we finally can complete this project.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
This project made us understand that there are many people who need help. As members of this society, our students are also responsible for contributing themselves to this world. Therefore, they started to help on many activities, such as cleaning the community, recycling the trash, donating the receipts, making poster, designing website, and etc. Although the power is small, they start to sense the responsibility to this society.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our topic is to introduce the great life of Mr. Sun Yue based on his life experience, volunteer will, and his moral role. Students are allowed to understand good character and personality through collecting information and interview with real people. So that, moral and character education are not only talking but truly practicing by those students. Students also make their own anti-secondhand-smoking posters which implements the value of practice.
