IB国际高中十年级养活教育基地行

IB International High School Self-Reliance Camp

2019224日,苏州工业园区外国语学校IB高中十年级全体同学抵达养活教育基地。跨出校门,近距离接触牧谷令学生感到新奇无比。他们不仅被工作人员的热情所感染,也惊叹牧谷自然风光之美,设施设备之完善。

Stepping outside the classroom and into Muku farm for a week can be a daunting experience for many students. On 24th Feb (Sunday), the IB year 10 students arrived at the Muku farm and were warmly welcomed by the people working there. They had an orientation around the farm and were fascinated by the facilities at the farm.

为了培养学生的自我管理和生活技能,他们被分成小组学习整理内务,餐桌礼仪和做饭等。学生们积极配合,在活动中关爱自己,关爱他人,关爱环境。他们跳出舒适区,清洗马桶、拖地板和擦窗户。在场的老师们和工作人员都被他们认真勤恳的态度所感动。

Over the next few days, the students worked together in teams to develop basic self-management and life skills such as tidying their rooms, serving at meal times and cooking. Students rose to the challenge and recognised the need to look after themselves, each other and their environment. Teachers and staff were impressed as students stepped out of their comfort zones to scrub toilet bowls, mop the floor and clean the windows meticulously.

早上,学生们参加中国文化选修课,诸如插花、木工、茶艺等。并且在香气氤氲的工作室体悟传统文化之美。这一系列的精品课程,必定能帮助他们更好地了解并传播母文化。不仅如此,学生们也按照计划,有序开展各项学术活动,完成迷你学业项目和既定课业任务。

In the mornings, students went for elective Chinese cultural courses such as floral arrangement, carpentry, tea appreciation and a fragrances workshop and developed a deeper understanding of the Chinese culture as part of their preparation to be ambassadors of the Chinese culture when they go overseas to study in the future. They also continued to work on their school projects and attended lessons.

对学生而言,牧谷农场之行有数不清的“第一次”:第一次自己熏肉,自己种植土豆,第一次摘蔬菜,第一次摘草莓,第一次自己独立计划并且做一桌子菜….他们走进自然,体验生活。感受一蔬一饭来之不易,应当用心珍惜。

The Muku farm stay was a unique time filled with many firsts– the first time they smoked meat, the first time they planted potatoes, the first time they plucked leaves of vegetables fresh off the plants, the first time they picked strawberries, and/or the first time they planned and cooked an entire meal on their own. They connected with nature and grew in appreciation of the hard work that went behind each ingredient and meal brought to the table. 

这次养活教育实践活动意义非凡。学生们不仅学到了平时学习和生活中所稀缺的农场,农工,做饭和其他必备生存技能。也唤醒了内心的独立意识,展现了勇于尝试、超越自己的精神品质。

Overall, the students enjoyed this new-found independence, displayed an adventurous, risk-taking spirit and gained valuable hands-on experiences in farming, woodwork, cooking and other skills that they would not otherwise have learned in the city and classroom.
