On the 29th, a team of reporters from the Ulsan English Newspaper interviewed Kim Sung-chul, the principal of Beomseo Middle School. The principal is trying to lead the students of Beomseo Middle School well and develop the young people of Ulsan into talented people who will shine. Q. Why did you want to be a teacher? Answer. "First, I wanted to live a recognized life. When I was a kid, my household wasn't very well-off. At that time, if I thought I was a bad student, I would have been called away to cut down trees and work in the fields, so I hated it. It's because I wanted to live a life with no regrets. Rather than passing on the life that every parent longs for to another generation, I thought I would make it happen for me. So, to me, studying felt like an absolute duty." Q. What is your teaching experience? Answer. "Starting with Haman Middle School in Gyeongnam on September 1, 1987, I have been working as the principal of Samho Middle School ▷ Yanggok Middle School ▷ Ulsan Information and Communication High School (1996) ▷ Beomseo Middle School ▷ Hwajin Middle School ▷ Yeonam Middle School ▷ Gangnam Meister High School ▷ Hogae Middle School (2013) ▷ Maegok Middle School (Principal_19), a total of 35 years." Q. What is the principal's duty? Answer. "I am responsible for managing/supervising students and teachers (principal, full-time, part-time, after-school, instructor, native assistant), general staff (local education administrative staff), and other staff (professional counselors, nutritionists, librarians, cooks, special education assistants, administrative staff, on duty drivers, and school safety guards). The school's personnel management, finance, security, office affairs, class management, and academic system are also part of my job, and I make the final decisions. I also have the authority to finally invoke administrative measures for schools under the superintendent's instructions. I have the authority to command the evacuation of students and faculty members in case of emergencies such as natural disasters or wars, and to start/operate the school emergency system." Q. Is there anything you want to change in Beomseo? Answer. "In order to promote students' convenience in terms of facilities, we would like to install shoe racks at the central entrance, east, and west entrance, respectively, to make things more convenient during rainy days or sports activities. In addition, I want to install stands and a canopy on the playground so that it can be used as a shade and rest area during sports activities or breaks. In terms of educational activities, we will carry out a campaign to have a club that will interest everyone so that students can enjoy their school life. Even if there is only a small number of people in the club, we plan to support them to find an instructor, material, and activity expenses to make it a practical educational activity. In addition, I would like to make efforts to promote international exchanges so that we can increase our understanding of coexistence and empathy in the global era through international exchanges and grow into a global citizen." Q. What are your plans for Beomseo Middle School in the future? Answer. "First of all, I plan to present the <Proud Bumseoin> award. I would like to select proud scribes by comprehensively evaluating students' various activities. We would like to improve reading education and school library-related projects to foster creative and convergent talents with humanities imagination. Also, regaring sports competitions and field trips, I would like to work on a student participation program. Finally, we are also planning to protect the Earth through <Zero Residue>." Through this interview, we could see the principal trying to bring up the students of Beomseo Middle School well. I think our leader is a principal who supports students, who will help us into the future, and promote a thriving society.자세히보기

On Saturday, November 12, Ulsan City's English Newspaper Press Corps (Nanchang High School) conducted an interview with Ulsan Superintendent of Education, the late Noh Ok-hee. During the interview, the late Superintendent of Education Noh Ok-hee said that the current education should be changed, referring to project classes that can enhance "self-directed competency and problem-solving skills", as well as the "ability to cooperate". In addition, referring to the student participation budget system, she said, "We should run the school with the opinions of students in mind. Although students may use the budget in the wrong place, it can be supplemented through a series of processes, and students can develop their autonomy through mistakes or failures." She added, "It is most important for students to have their own ideas." Finally, she commented, "Many activities that students don't seem to be able to do, can be led by students through discussions and meetings," adding, "These discussions will require teachers' efforts to prevent creating a student-led situation." Throughout the interview, the late superintendent Noh Ok-hee emphasized activities to promote students' self-directed and self-governing skills. We got a glimpse of the efforts of the late superintendent Noh Ok-hee to change contemporary Korean teenagers, who are said to be unable to make their own decisions, rely too often on others, and struggle to express their position clearly. A student in Ulsan said, "We hope that various policies and plans of the late superintendent Noh Ok-hee will continue to be worked on."자세히보기
Global warming refers to a phenomenon in which the temperature of the Earth continuously rises. As greenhouse gas emissions have increased since the Industrial Revolution, global temperatures have continued to rise. If global warming gets worse, sea levels will rise, fine dust will increase, and eco-systems will be destroyed. People's attention and efforts are needed to prevent global warming. In early 2022, Mugeo High School is planning an environmental project to promote awareness of the current state of the global environment and how to protect the Earth. The Flogging Challenge, which is being conducted by the Green Convergence Project of Mugeo High School, is a campaign to pick up trash while jogging to protect both health and the environment. Currently, more than 40 students and faculty members have applied for the challenge. If you participate in this challenge, you can also get a gifticon. According to a student who already participated in the challenge, "I got to know the environment well, and it was good to receive gifts while trying to protect the environment."자세히보기
With an estimated 10 million pets in Korea, it is thought that about 26.4% (more than 100,000) of all households in Ulsan have companion animals. However, as the population owning companion animals increases, the number of abandoned animals is also steadily increasing, which is raising concerns. According to data released by Ulsan City in April of last year, the number of abandoned animals in Ulsan continues to increase, with 2,879 in 2017, 2,915 in 2018, 3,115 in 2019, and 3,344 in 2020. Ulsan Abandoned Animal Protection Center rescues and protects abandoned animals in Ulsan. Unfortunately, volunteer activities were suspended for some time due to COVID-19, but they were able to start again in April this year. About 1,403 abandoned animals are admitted to the Ulsan Abandoned Animal Protection Center every year. This is close to half of all abandoned animals in the Ulsan area. Among them, 18.8% were returned to the original owner, 5.2% were adopted, 28.5% were donated, 5.5% were euthanized, and 28.1% are still being protected. The low rate of euthanasia may seem positive, but considering the fact that nearly half of the animals eventually die in the shelter, it's not entirely positive. In order to save the animals of the shelter, adoption is very necessary. As the number of people looking for a companion animal is gradually increasing, how about adopting a companion animal instead of buying one?자세히보기
