The school is located in Fuxing Village, Dacun Township, Changhua County. The campus is full of greenery, and the school building is hidden among the dense woods. The whole school is like a courtyard in a fairy tale. The design of the school building is combined with the campus landscape, and there are many hidden beauties in it.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
1.Difficulties in article translation: Because English is not our mother tongue or second language. Everyone has studied English for less than 4 years. Therefore, it is a difficult task for us to translate articles written in Chinese into English. We use the online translation system to check whether the translation is correct. Then ask the teacher to assist us in making the final confirmation. 2.photo integration is difficult: In order to clearly show the beauty of our school. Everyone took a lot of photos. However, it is a big problem to fully display in the limited space of the website. Fortunately, the teacher taught us to use PhotoScape software to integrate graphics. With the assistance of a teacher, it really helped us a lot. 3.the difficulty of making web pages: Because our web production capabilities and skills are not good enough. Encountered great difficulties in making web pages. This section is guided and assisted by two teachers. Let us study step by step. The teacher guided us to learn Kompozer web creation software. Let's successfully complete the production of our cyberfair webpage. 4.the study time is not easy to arrange: Because the school curriculum and activities are already very compact. We can only use the daily lunch break for research. Many times we take full advantage of the convenience of computer technology. Communicate, share or exchange data using email, interactive websites, web drives. In addition, the teacher grouped us in advance. Everyone is responsible for what they are responsible for. Use the holidays to discuss with your family. I will share the information with you. So that we can better understand what we are studying. During this period, everyone's feelings became more harmonious.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
First, arouse the concern of students and residents for their school: Through the research process, let us know our school better and deepen our identification with school. I hope that through our sharing, people in my hometown will be more concerned about everything in their hometown. Second, spread through the web, so that the beauty of the place can be seen by more people: Our webpage links to the school website. Share through the web, so that more people can see the beauty of Cundong elementary school and share our thematic research data.
