淡江中學

 

淡江中學首任校長為馬偕博士之子偕叡廉,綠意盎然的校園與古樸高雅的建築,充分表現了淡江的歷史傳統與創校精神,不僅讓師生引以為傲,也是歷代校友精神所繫,可說是先人所留的珍貴文化資產。中西台璧的建築,不僅承繼了馬偕博土追求中西文化交流與提升的精神,也是近代台灣的文化瑰寶。

The first principal of Tamkang Senior High was George William Mackay, the son of Dr. George Leslie Mackay. Tamkang Senior High is famous for its romantic surroundings in Taiwan and has been for years. The design of the campus is based on the European university style and also traditional Eastern Style, which creates an elegant learning atmosphere as well as the best environment for inspiring and cultivating humanities and attitude. It stands for not only the spirit of Dr. Mackay and culture, but also is a treasure of Taiwan.

 

牛津學堂

 

1881年,馬偕博士於加拿大募款後重返淡水,擇定牛津學堂現址,親手規劃、監工,興建校舍。1882年峻工,取名「理學堂大書院」。因感懷其故鄉加拿大牛津郡鄉親之盛情襄贊,英文乃命名為Oxford College,故後人稱之為牛津學堂,此後成為長老教會培育傳教、醫療和教育的基地,同時是台灣第一個私人博物館。

 

In 1881, Dr. Mackay went back to Tamsui after raising funds from the people in Oxford, Canada. He chose a location, designed and built the Oxford College. It was named as Oxford College in honor of the people in Oxford for their enthusiastic deication and donation during the period of construction.  Later, it has become an important place for missionaries, medical care, and education. Also, it is the first ever private museum in Taiwan.
