Professor Pai Hsien-yung visited The ISF Academy to share the acquaintance of his work

The famous Taiwanese writer and playwright Professor Pai Hsien-yung visited The ISF Academy on 23 March, 2019 and met with more than 20 Grades 11 and 12 students who are studying his classic “Taipei People”. In a symposium that lasted more than an hour, Professor Pai had an in-depth exchange with the students, starting from the poem “Black Coat Lane” in the beginning of the book to discuss the theme, characters, symbolism, writing techniques and background of the famous work. The students prepared a number of questions related to “Taipei People” for this special occasion. Upon answering the questions, Professor Pai appreciated the thoughtful questions raised by students which reflect their good understanding of the collection of stories and the Chinese literacy development of the students. Professor Pai then signed books for the students and everyone was excited to be able to own a personalised copy of the classic.

In this trip, Professor Pai also visited the new facilities of the Academy, and had a lunch with School Supervisor & Chairperson of the School Management Committee Ms. Frances Wong, member of the SMC Mrs. Cheng Yu-Hwei, and Head of School Dr. Malcolm Pritchard.
