Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Our school, Fu Cheng Senior High School, is located in Fengshan district, Kaohsiung. The transportation here is convenient. A pedestrian road beside Cian Jhen River is neighboring our school. The MRT station, Cian Jeng Senior High school, is quite close. There are also many restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. Therefore, it is with all the benefits of basic necessities of life. For all the reasons, the population in Wu Chia District, also where our school is located, is increasing. It is a new growing community.

2. Summary of Our Project

The theme of our research is “the historical heritage of Fengshan.” During the time of Japanese’s governing in Taiwan, Kaohsing had been growing and once was the most prosperous city of southern Taiwan. Due to its large quantity of population and a variety of ethnic groups, many historical sites, temples or monuments are left. All these contribute to the aboundance of our cultural contents in Fengshan.
