The Story of Hsiangshan

Hsiangshan area is one with rich cultural history, and due to the efforts of its founding pioneers, many relics still remain as proof of this.

    Hsiangshan Primary School was already in existence before the R.O.C government was formed, so people cannot help but praise “what a historic school it is! ” when they know the history of this school.

The Man who Founded Hiangshan Primary School ----Mr. Chen Yun-Ru

    Hsiangshan Primary School was founded on June 10th, 1910 , when Mr. Chen Yun-Ru donated his villa to be the school house.

    At that time it was named New-Pu Public School after the village in which it was located. The school campus covered an area of 3000 square meters which contained many shelters, tablets, lamp posts, stools, tables and all sorts of sculptures, all made of stone. There are also many beautiful gardens, ponds and artificial rocks.

I Love Hsiangshan

Have you ever heard of Hsiangshan ? Maybe not yet,but I’m sure you’ll fall in love with this place once you discover this land.

       Although without modern department stores and crowded streets, Hsiangshan is still the warmest hometown in our minds.
The Origins of the Name “Hsiangshan”

 Some say that in the period of Cheng Cheng-Kung, Chuchian aborigines (Doska) used to live here, so the name “Fan-Shan” was given to this land. (In Madarin, “Shan” refers to mountain, and “Fan “means savages, conveying a degree of discrimination toward the aborigines.) However later on, since an increasingly large number of Han Chinese settlers migrated here and the aborigines began to dwindle in number , the elegant term “Hsiangshan” was thus adopted to replace the vulgar one “Fan-Shan”.

    Another story says that this place hadn’t had any name until Han Chinese settlers migrated here on a large scale. They started to call it Hsiangshan  (In Chinese,”Hsiang” means fragrant and “Shan” means mountain) because on their arrival many fragrant charming flowers and grass were growing everywhere in the fields and all over the hills.

Let's Scatter Our Love !

    Geographically, Hsinchu is divided into three parts: East District, North District and Hsiangshan District. With the East District as well as Pao-Shan Village to the east, the Taiwan Strait to the west, Chunan Town to the south, and the north District to the north, Hsiangshan District lies in the southwestern part of Hsinchu City, as an important transportation hub for travel to South Taiwan.   

School Emblem

    What’s your impression of the sun? The sun awakens people from their sleep every morning, enabling them to energetically confront their everyday work. It’s regarded as the most diligent always going on duty on time without complaining. Therefore, the sun is used to symbolize Hsiangshan residents’deligence, optimism, energy as well as courage. Hsiangshan is like the hometown of the sun. And the school is pushed forward by the power of the sun to strive for a better tomorrow.

The Environment in Hsiangshan Primary School

     Hsiangshan Primary School is seated in the administrative center of Hsiangshan District, as the most historic school in the district and the third oldest in Hsinchu City. In a rapidly changing society, having failed to meet the demands of teaching, the original school buildings were reconstructed in 1999 under the government scheme. Since then, it has become a modern facilitied school, as if it were a kid’s castle in the fairy tales. Whenever you enter our school, you’ll be attracted to the atomosphere of joy.

The Characteristics of the School

    Owing to its elegant environment and pure atomsphere, the students in Hsiangshan Primary School are both naive and sincere.

   Hsiangshan has been well known for the kicking shuttlecock, since 1974 when a team was organized to promote the athletic activity. On behalf of our school, it won a lot of awards in many different contests all over Taiwan.

    In 1995, a Beiguan (North winds) Folk Music Troupe was formed, whose members were chosen from the fourth, fifth and sixth graders with great interest in music. In addition to traditional Beiguan tunes, some folk songs were also used to motivate the students’ learning since its establishment. Not only has the Beiguan Folk Music Troupe helped promote the cultural enterprise of the community, but it has also strengthened the students’ competence to inherit Taiwanese native art, furthermore it has even helped the students cultivate an affection toward their hometown and motherland.

    Of note in the athletics department are our girls’ handball and boys’ baseball teams. A great amount of efforts has always been placed in girls’ handball, which has represented Taiwan, and made many great achievements in tournaments both here and abroad. Our baseball team has also enjoyed many past successes, once placing the 7th in the National Tournament, and representing Hsinchu in the “Golden Dragon Flag Cup”.

    As for our music department, the main focus has always been on our recorder and choir programs.

    Hsiangshan’s students are truly lucky to be in such a diverse learning environment. Let us all hope for an even more prosperous Xiang-Shan Primary School in the future!
