In 2006, Lian Chiang County Government (Fu Jen Province) made a request to MOE for
teachers’ continuing education and further study. In accordance with our institutional mission to
“attend to all students with parental care, support, and guidance”, we recruited 20 students per
year for a work-experience program (Lian Chiang class) at that location in 2006 and 2007.
GSE recruited 8 students for its regular program (day classes in Taoyuan) and 60 students in the
work-experience program (night/weekend classes in Taipei/Taoyuan) in 2011. There are currently
23 students in the regular program, 64 students in Taipei night program, and 59 students in Taoyuan
night program, for a total of 146 students in all.
