Tablet Commemorating the Establishment of the Fangqiao Public School

The Da Guan Literature Society was the first promoter of education in Banqiao. In 1899, Fangqiao Public School was established and was funded by the society. Later, the Lin family constructed a new building for the Fangqiao Public School at the present site of Banciao Elementary School. The Lin family also erected a stone tablet to commemorate the event. More than a hundred years later, the entire tablet has worn away by natural erosion to the extent that the inscription has become unclear and difficult to decipher. Moreover, the tablet has suffered vandalism and the Japanese dates and Japanese names inscribed have all been defaced. Today the rear of this tablet stands a new explanatory placard.
