On Friday, August 26, 2016, TPCA will be taking a Field Trip to assist us in meeting our school mission statement which requires us to develop wisdom. Our trip will be to visit Academia Sinica, specifically the library at the Institute of European and American Studies, Life Science Library, Lingnan Fine Arts Museum and Hu Shih Memorial Hall, where our students can learn research skills and appreciate the beauty of Chinese art and writing. We will meet at the Exit 2 of Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center MRT station at 8:00 am. After meeting we will depart on a bus from the MRT station which will take us to the location. Upon completion of the activities at Academia Sinica, we will return to Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center MRT station and dismiss at the MRT station around 3:30pm (Lunch: If students want a hot lunch, they can eat at one of the restaurants on campus for at least NTD 100 per meal. Students can also choose to bring their own lunch, however, please note that no refrigerators or microwaves will be available for those who choose to bring their lunch). This field trip is a school event; all students are required to attend. Students not attending this school day will need to follow proper procedures and complete an absence request form.
