HSINCHU, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Karl and Johan Experimental Education Institutes, a Zhubei City based educational institute provide a bilingual learning environment and tech-focused classes for their elementary and secondary school students. In addition to offering innovative academic classes, the schools encourage students to participate in volunteer activities in order to help people in need. This year, teachers and students at Karl visited a rural school to allow students at both schools to exchange their differences in life and culture. Furthermore, Karl Education Foundation also donated 40 sleeping bags to a school located in an aboriginal village in Taiwan this winter.At the end of the last semester Karl students visited their sister school in Jianshih Township in Hsinchu City. Students of both schools put on a performance to show what they had learned in the areas of art, language, music, and culture. They discussed their experiences in learning English and the performing arts, then enjoyed a wonderful aboriginal meal in the evening. The next day they visited Hsinle Elementary School, which is known for fostering Olympic athletes in archery. Karl students discussed their own experiences in academic classes, played traditional aboriginal musical instruments, and tried-out archery. "The two-day volunteer activity allowed me to gain knowledge not found in books, to give back to the society, and to share what I have learned with new friends in rural areas," said one student. Elementary students at Johan school, on the other hand, also have the chance to participate in volunteer activities at the end of each semester so that they understand the value of helping others at a young age. This time they went to a recycling station in Nanliao Township to see recycling operations and how it contributes to creating green-energy. Then they visited the Children Are Us Foundation, whose core goals are the care and education of persons with intellectual disabilities. The Karl Education Foundation is just one example if schools in Taiwan aiming to support distant schools around the country, and to foster environmental protection and sustainability awareness in the hope that students will have the right values, and be willing to give back to the society from which they came for years to come.
