Min Fu Primary School, which was honored for its efforts to promote environmental protection and popularizing energy conservation education in 2010 and 2011, held a workshop on originality in environment education on November 3, with another event scheduled for Nov. 24 as well. Principal Lin Pi-Hsia invited guests from all fields to participate in the school’s anniversary on Nov. 19. This year they are cooperating with the Hsinchu Farmers’ Association to develop a low-carbon market which is targeted not only at making harvested jambolan plums into refreshments, but also to analyzing the value in environmental protection and utilization of the products. Principal Lin noted that Min Fu Primary School has established a Hsinchu Junior High and Primary School Energy Education Promotion Center out of unused old kitchen and classroom equipment in order to let teachers and students experience the principles of wind, solar, and bike generators as well as the significance of energy conservation in our daily lives. This year, they are emphasizing the promotion of low-carbon living and developing local agricultural products into related products for the sake of reducing carbon footprints resulting from transportation. On Nov. 19, the anniversary of Min Fu Primary School, there will be a low-carbon market organized by the school offering refreshments such as fruit tea, yolk pastry and cheese cake all made using jambolan plums. Principal Lin welcomes everyone to join the celebration of their anniversary to experience the low-carbon market. One feature will be the jambolan plums growing on the outside wall, helping everyone to work toward a low-carbon lifestyle.
