In 1934, Mr. Chen Rui-you, who made a fortune in Southeast Asia, allotted 20,000 silver dollars to Mr. Chen Te-hsing, who was also an overseas Chinese belonging to the same Chen clan as Chen Rui-you, for establishing the “Ruiyou Primary School” in Pishan, Kinsha Township. The facilities in the school include an assembly hall, classrooms, a faculty office, staff and faculty accommodation, a sports ground, a flag-raising platform, a kitchen, bathrooms, and toilets. The total area of the school is 20 ares, with the structures accounting for one-third. In the front is a two-storey western structure made up of stone, brick, granite, and wood. The pillars and steps on the front porch were built of Chuanchou’s white stone, while the beams used in the assembly hall were made up of kapur timber shipped from Southeast Asia. The walls were all built with red brick tailored in China, which prevents wind and heat and looks beautiful. The baroque façade is conspicuous for its proportionally-large head, on which a national flag as well as
a KMT flag was drawn and clay sculptures of Indian policemen, a marching band, plants, and cranes have been well preserved.
