IB Y10 Students’ First Day of Orientation

IB十年级首次入学教育纪实

 

IB Y10 students had their first day of orientation on the 27th of August. After their morning reading class, they were gathered at the school playground and met their drillmaster. Even though our Y10 students got up very early in the morning and were standing outside during this hot summer, they were all acting like real soldiers, following all the instructions earnestly, such as ‘at ease’, ‘attention’, ‘right dressleft dress’ and ‘count off’.

2017年8月27日,IB国际高中部10年级新生迎来了第一天的入学教育。10年级学生们结束早读课后,到操场集合,接受教官的训练。虽然所有学生一直立在炎热的太阳下接受严格的军姿训练,但他们丝毫不受热浪的侵袭,像真正的军人那样要求自己,认真完成教官的每一个口令,诸如“稍息”“立正”、“向右转”“向左转”、“报数”等口令。

As lunchtime approaches, though starving, our Y10 students waited for junior school students to have lunch first. They stood in line and entered into canteen orderly. Despite the fact that they were the last batch having lunch, they enjoyed their lunch and had a great time eating with their new friends.

经过紧张的集训,当午饭时间来临时, 10年级学生们已经很饿了,但是,所有学生因顾念初中入学教育学生的需要,先让学弟学妹先行打饭,而他们静静排到后面等候。尽管学生排在全校最后才能吃到饭,但是他们都非常享受午餐时间,并与各自新结交的朋友一起分享午餐。

After an hour’s break, our Y10 students started their afternoon bonding activities. They were introduced with some ice-breaking ones such as walk in circles, name guessing and quick learning of Taiqi. After the warming-up part, students joined in two activities – the card game and the ball game, which require a lot of collaborating and communicating skills. Our Y10s thought various kinds of methods in winning the game, worked extremely well with each other and had a lot of fun. Very soon, in cheers and laughter, they ended up the first day’s orientation and had their dinner at the canteen.

1个小时的午休结束后,10年级学生开始了下午的拓展活动训练。首先,拓展活动老师带领学生展开一系列有趣的“破冰”活动,以便让学生之间有更好的默契,如集体绕圈走、趣味猜名字、太极快速学等有趣的活动。这些热身活动过后,学生们分组加入到需要展示更多的沟通和交流技能的竞赛活动中——翻卡游戏与球类游戏。在活动中, 10年级学生互相配合、通力合作,思考各样的方法来赢得活动的胜出。同时,他们也在活动中获得了很多的乐趣。很快,在竞赛活动的欢呼声和笑声中,学生们结束了第一天的入学教育活动,到学校餐厅进晚餐。

Exhausted but excited, Y10 students continued with their evening session – diary writing. Through their diary, they not only reflected on the experiences but more importantly, on the spirits of IB as an IB learner. Some realized the importance of being an open-minded person through not judging a person according to stereotypes. For example, the drillmaster also has his caring aspects. Some of our students recognized the significance of being a good communicator, especially through afternoon bonding time. Some reflected that through orientation, they were cared by their classmates such as helping with the dressing and also, in this way, have learned how to care others. Some also mentioned how they have developed their critical and creative thinking skills through trial and errors.

尽管身体还留有白天入学教育的疲乏,但是10年级学生们在晚自习上仍怀着兴奋,继续写入学教育日记。在入学教育日记里,学生们不但有重点地概述了一天的入学教育经历,而且更重要的是在精神上开始思考IB学习者培养目标的精神。一些学生已经意识到作为一名胸襟开阔的IB学习者,不能仅仅根据刻板印象去判断人,就像军队出身的教官也有其他方面的关怀人的温柔展现。特别是通过下午的拓展活动训练,一些学生认识到成为一名优秀沟通者的意义。入学教育还让一些学生在日记中切身反思到学习如何关爱他人,譬如班级同学在互相帮助穿军服这样的小行动中学习关爱他人。也有一些学生在日记里提及他们是怎样通过克服困难、面对错误来发展他们的批判性思考问题以及创造性思考问题的技能。

  

All in all, it is indeed a fruitful and worthwhile day though tough and tired. Our Y10 IB students are ready for any possible difficulties and challenges. Bearing LPA in mind, they will work together and develop progressively not only during these military training days but also in theirfuture studies and lives!  

总而言之,一整天艰苦而劳碌的入学教育对10年级新生来说,的确是富有成效和有意义的。这为他们进入新的学习迎击各种困难、面对各种挑战做了很好的预备。有了对IB学习者培养目标初步的了解,学生们不仅会在今后几天的入学教育中更加在理念上认可IB学习者培养目标,更将在未来的学生和生活中一起合作,极大地实践发展IB学习者的具体培养目标。
