Südsee Schule - South Lake School

South Lake School, Hongcun 2017

There were originally six family schools in the village of Hungcun and it was not until 1814 that it was decided to consolidate the schools and build the South Sea School. It was under the regency of Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty. The school covers 6660 m² and corresponds to a typical Huizhou Academy, built of wood with four halls, gardens, and open courtyards.

In the South Sea School, there is one area for the worship of Confucius, to which schoolchildren came before and after they finished their studies, to offer Confucius.
