華夏中文學校自海外漢字文化節開辦以來,全力支持僑委會所有文化活動並積極推廣中華文化及語言。我們多年來的耕耘更取得許多當地學子們及其家長們的認同。另外,針對數位導入方面,華夏因該會的贊助,提供英國當地免費實體師資訓練課程、教師能以線上同步、非同步課程等多元模式進行跨區或跨洲的師資培訓。快速整合各地資源,傳遞新知介紹當地外語教學規準、數位教學最新趨勢,匯聚華語文線上知識庫,以多元培訓模式涵養僑校專業師資。

華夏中文學校誠摯地感謝中華民國僑務委員會大力贊助,讓我校於中華文化及語言學習領域能更盡一份心力。

Overseas Community Affairs Council, Republic of China (OCAC)

In October 1926, in response to the government’s concern for overseas Chinese affairs, the Overseas Chinese Affairs Council (OCAC) was established directly subordinate to the Nationalist Government. In December 1931, the OCAC Organic Act was enacted. This measure, which placed the OCAC under the Executive Yuan, specified that the OCAC would have secretariat, overseas Chinese management, and overseas Chinese education departments, as well as sections for document management, general affairs, overseas Chinese guidance, immigration, educational guidance, and cultural affairs. The OCAC was formally established in April 1932.

To promote Chinese language education worldwide, the Chung Hwa Correspondence School was established in 1940, providing overseas Chinese with opportunities for advanced studying via correspondence. In addition, to simultaneously disseminate news and information among the overseas Chinese, the government established the Overseas Chinese News Agency in April, 1941 as a means of issuing news bulletins, compiling reports on overseas Chinese affairs, and communicating news from the motherland. The Constitution of the ROC enacted by the National Assembly in December, 1946 listed overseas Chinese affairs among the ROC’s “fundamental national policies,” stipulating that the nation should protect and assist in the national economic development of overseas Chinese.

In December 1981, the number of Deputy Ministers was changed from the original two to two or three based on a revision to the OCAC Organic Act. The OCAC Organic Act was revised again in December 2006 to increase OCAC members. In response to the restructuring of the Executive Yuan, the act was further revised in September 2012.The current organization includes a minister, a deputy minister, a vice minister and five departments, which are Policy Research and Development, Overseas Chinese Network Services, Overseas Chinese Education, Overseas Chinese Business, and Overseas Chinese Student Counselling, as well as five offices, which are the Secretariat, Personnel, Civil Service Ethics, Accounting and Statistics, and Information Management. Additional divisions include Overseas Chinese News Agency and Legal Affairs Committee.

In March 1985, the OCAC’s first Culture Centre of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office was established in San Francisco, U.S.A. to serve overseas Chinese. The number of the OCAC’s culture centres has been increased, and a total of 17 have been established, including centres in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the Philippines, and Australia.
