Guashan Elementary School on Taiwan’s northern coast is celebrating a big anniversary. 100 years ago, the school opened its doors. For 100 years, this and other nearby schools have been bringing basic education to this gold mining district. To celebrate the school’s big milestone and look back at schooling through a century, the local New Taipei City Gold Museum has opened a special exhibit called “Time for School: A Century of Education in a Mining Town”. Here to take us on a tour of school days past is the museum’s director, Liao Wen-ching.
