IB社会实践课系列报道•慈善面具舞会

Human care rarely extends beyond the line of sight. We may care for family members, friends, relatives and even our neighbors. But for people that we haven’t seen before, we rarely care about them. From time to time, the media may bring our attention to people in need after a great disaster. However, we seldom care about their daily life. Do they have a normal life as we do, or do they usually live in need?

世界广大,纵爱心深厚诚挚,亦有无所达之处。我们爱家人、亲友甚至爱我们的邻居,但对于那些不曾亲见却身处困境的人们,很少有机会关心。平时只有在一次大灾难之后,媒体才将人们的眼光聚焦于他们,对他们的日常生活,我们更是知之甚少。我们是要为他们的日常生活多出一份力呢,还是仅仅在他们处于危难之时才施以援手?

So our students started to research the everyday life of people who live in high poverty areas. What they found changed their views on the poor. People-in-need require support even to get through every day, and what we see as normal in our daily life can be a torment for them.

针对这个问题,我们的学生做了一项研究,调查贫困地区人们的日常生活,这项调查改变了他们对贫穷的认识。即便没有陷入危机,贫困地区的人们仍然需要支援和帮助,他们的日常生活已经过得非常艰难。

Winter in Shangri-La is a mile off to what we have here, as we can enjoy winter within our living room with the comfort of air conditioners and hot pot with friends and families.

苏州的冬天,我们可以在温暖舒适的房间里吹空调,还可以经常与亲朋好友围炉夜坐、畅谈叙旧。

However, winter in the mountain region of Shangri-La is sealed by snow. Students have to walk miles in the snow to reach their school. Some of them may be able to afford winter clothes, but for those in need, they don’t even have spare money to buy clothes. Sometimes they return to school with frost bites all over their hands.

然而,香格里拉的冬天,寒风凛冽、大雪覆盖,孩子们不得不在雪中步行几里路去上学。有些贫困家庭的孩子买不起冬衣御寒,经常衣衫单薄,手上布满冻疮,行走在上学路上。

After researching and seeing these shocking images, students have decided to raise money to buy winter clothes and donating them to one of the schools in the mountain region of Shangri-La.

调查研究过程中,IB同学们看到香格里拉这些孩子的照片,不禁潸然泪下,他们决定发起募捐,购买冬衣捐助给香格里拉山区的一所学校。

After the initial research on the purpose of the project, students started to research on ways to make money. Very soon, they have determined that they would like to hold a Christmas masquerade party.

建议提出后,同学们首先做了调查研究,并且商讨研究了募捐的渠道和方式,很快,他们决定策划一场圣诞节面具慈善舞会。

At the beginning, students had no idea how to manage a party, but soon they figured out that it involves four main parts: event run down, decoration, advertisement and accounting.

起初,同学们并不知道如何安排一场晚会,但是他们很快就进入了角色,确定了四个主要部分:晚会运行、装饰、宣传广告和财务。


Every part of this project is a major undertaking. Our students have learnt a lot through the preparation of this event. In event run down, students have gained a lot of public speaking experience, how to plan for every detail and how to handle emergency events.

每一部分都意味着一次挑战和担当。晚会筹备阶段,同学们已经学到了不少,晚会进行中,同学们更是收获良多。他们学会了如何在公众场合讲话,如何为每个细节做计划,还学会了如何应对紧急事件。

Students also got a chance to show their talents to everyone on the masquerade night. From a group dance and music performances, to ballet and solo singing, it all shows the hard work that our students have put into the preparation of the masquerade event.

借此机会,同学们也向现场所有观众展示了自己的才华,无论是精彩的团体舞,还是优美的音乐演奏,无论是曼妙的芭蕾舞,还是动人的独唱,无不显示出同学对面具舞会的辛勤付出。
