Yu-Ying elementary school originated in the
time of the year of 1941 when the Japanese occupied Taiwan. It was at the address of
today´s PU LI junior
high school. Form then to now , the school experienced several changes both the
school name and the school address.
First, in 1946, the
government took over the school from the Japanese and renamed to PU LI third national school at the address of
today´s PU LI second
Second, by the
school district dividing, the school renamed to Yu-Ying
national school at Street Yu-Ying 20.
Third, the government carried the
responsibility of nine year´s compulsory education into practice, our school renamed again to
Yu-Ying elementary school until now .
The most changeable thing was the harm of
the earthquake on SEP. 21, 1999. We spent four years to complete the school
building reconstruction by the tenth principal Mr. Shu-kang Chiang who lead the teachers
and students to engage in. And the inauguration of the new school took place
on FEB 21, 2004.
Based by the
internal education essence and external environment, the campus scheme of our
school has four primary planning ideas .
(1)Integrated and diversified learning space
In order to change the traditionalized
classroom style into cluster classroom, there are two kinds of classroom styles. In the kindergarten, the first grade, and the second grade, a
unit was with two classrooms.And from the 3rd to the 6th grade, a unit was with
four classrooms. These different styles are based on the new curriculum and are
coincided with nowadays integrated , individual, and diversified educational
(2)Cluster campus space
The whole school building depended on the environment
characters, dividing into three clusters.
A. The learning cluster form the
kindergarten to the second grade
In order to let the little children have the
best playing and learning place just like a home, the buildings were built only
one floor with half outdoor playing space. The children can be under care to
learn what they need.
B. The learning cluster from the
third to the sixth grade
In the age of
third to sixth grade, children grew up obviously in the way of the human
relationship,physical strength and intelligence. They started to test the new
thing and wished free to make decisions. So they have separated classroom ,
also with a half outdoor space connected the outdoor.
C. The core cluster
Connected by a circular corridor, the core
building is consisted of the gymnasium, audio-visual and art center, the
teaching resources center and the administration center.It also became a
communicated center of the teachers, students and community people.
(3) Share with the people of the
It is easy to connect from the center of
the campus to every single space. And it is also opened to the people of the
community. It can improve the relationship between not only people to people
but people to land, and also appear an active landscape of the school .
(4) The environment education
involve in the campus.
The whole campus seems to be a center of
the environment education. The result made from the dialogue between the campus
and the nature, through the way communicating the children between not only
people andnature but people and land, in order to obtain the environmental
awareness by changing and influencing gradually. The environment education
would be fused in the campus completely.
The procedure of the reconstruction has
(1) The harm of the earthquake
On the date of SEP.21 1999 A.M. 01:47, all the buildings in our school were
destroyed by an earthquake which grade was 7.3. The school got into the period
of the reconstruction.
The adjustment after disaster
After the disaster, our school became to
refuge of the community people.The classrooms were the storerooms where could store the goods and
materials. And the playground lived all over the victims of a nature disaster
which to keep out wind and rain. The teachers and students returned to school on
OCT.04,1999. We attended class at the Confucian temple on OCT. 12 again.
We found out another place to build simple
classroom at SIN-SEN road No.152 on OCT.21, 1999. They finished on NOV. 6. Pupils

The new campus has some features except
special externals and materials of the architecture.
The complementarity of the
learning area on the top region contained classrooms, offices and nature
ecology field. The down
region inclusive of a playground and a gymnasium were good to do the physical
education activities. It showed up a diversified learning space, not only there
were no interferences between movement and still learning, but helped each
The paths of movement no block.

The floor of every classroom is made of
wood, and it had a good natural light and well to ventilate. All of the things
made the classroom became a warm home. In the case of the outside activity
area, they have their own activity space from the kindergarten to sixth grade. And
there is no doubt it is a paradise for child´s life by the green outdoor and the clean
The gymnasium can be used for student
group-activity, act, PE and community activity. You don´t worry about the weather , it has a
best natural light and air and the best lovely place where the teachers,
student and community people would like to go to.
(5) The lower learning space
the first and the second grade were one floor building, and other buildings
were built no more than two floors. They can make the children easy to touch
(6) The cluster space is based on the
innovation of the curriculum.
The learning space
integrated the traditional classroom into cluster classroom . The style depended
on the needs for the curriculum of the consistent between elementary school and
junior high school.
The whole new
school gives the new hope to create the perspectives from the heart. There are
four targets to carry out in the future time.
(1) To be adept in using the space and to guide
the children learning happily.
(2) To develop the potentials of the students
and to teach every student well.
(3) To do the best in teaching with the teacher´s love.
(4) To communicate with the community and to
live with the nature.
It is to stride across the reconstruction and to show the
life again. Yu-Ying elementary school is renewed after going through the harm of the earthquake. Except
insisting on the quality of the education, we hope to build a happy learning
space for children with every teacher, student, and parents in the future.
