Houliao Elementary School is located in Fangyuan Township of Changhua County which lies on the west coast of Taiwan. Our school is established in 1960. There are 85 students and the number of teaching staff is 12. The main occupations of the residents are blue collar laborers and farmers. Most of our students come from the families with limited financial and educational resources and less access to social and cultural capital. Yet our kids are a lways cute and enthusiastic about learning. About 4 kilometer away from our school is Changhua County’s Fanyuan Wetlands walkway. The one kilometer walkway is around two meters in height above the intertidal zone, thus allowing tourists to observe the mang rove and wetland habitat without disturbing wildlife. Several bird species can be found in the wetland habitat, while receding tides reveal mudskippers, fiddler crabs, and hermit crabs. Tourists can visit Fangyuan Putian Temple, which has the most land of all temples in Taiwan, as well as experience the sea ox cart, a local way to travel around intertidal zones to harvest shellfish. We’ll share the local treasure nature and religion culture with you.
