Taiwan is our destination for Middle School's first Chinese language trip. During our trip, students will spend their time in Taipei, and Hualien County where 25% of its population is Taiwanese aborigines. One of the highlights is a visit to Sibao Grade School located inside the Taroko National Park. Our students will spend their night with Sibao students in their dormitory and days in their classrooms completing collaborative projects including the study of the ecology of Taroko National Park and the life styles of aboriginal people. We will also visit several museums that feature Taiwan aboriginal cultures. While visiting these museums, our students will be hosted by local school children and have opportunities to complete hands-on projects together.
