Feng Xia Middle School in Qing Yuan city was established by Madam Chen Feng Xia in 1999. It aims to help the poor but capable children in the villages in underdeveloped Qingxin County to get proper education so that they can become independent. About one-third of students are recruited from the city center, one-third from the vicinity of school and one-third from the towns and villages in Qingxin County. Tuition fee for students from poor families are either reduced or exempted. It is either subsidized by school fees collected from richer students or supported by school donars.
Every time when Island School teachers and students stay in the dormitory of Fengxia Middle School, we donate some money to help sponsor the needy students there. Starting from summer 2008, we sponsor some graduates of the school to go to universities.Students receive sponsorship to pay for the school fees, living expenses, charges for extra-curricular activities and computing equipment.
