Yr 11 CAS Service Trip to Thailand ( Day4 )

11年级学生CAS课程之泰国义工旅行(第4天)


On Tuesday 25th April, everyone set off early for the Turtle Conservation Center. Students first learned how to hold the turtles, thencarefully remove them from their tanks, before going into the tanks themselves to scrub and wash the tiles free from algae. The last step was examining each turtle for infections and treating them with purple antiseptic liquid. As there were several tanks of turtles and they were in an array of sizes, students had to repeat their actions and work together for some of the bigger ones. By midday the job was done and we headed to the local village for lunch. On the way, some students said they missed the cute turtles already as they keep tortoises at home as pets and others remarked on how they felt this activity was more worthwhile than the others so far since they were giving help to live animals. After lunch in the village, there was a rest break before a lesson on the seriousness of marine litter and a beach clean-up session. Students picked up any trash they found along the coast and sorted them out when they returned into four bags: glass, plastic, metals and others. It was a job well done and surprisingly, some students said that they enjoyed this activity as it was similar to the Green Walk they do in Charity Club. At the same time, it was a chance for everyone to take in the sea breeze, listen to diverse birds around and spot various shell animals as well! Dinner followed, then a reflection session with the Principal, before the students were dismissed to their rooms for evening study. As instructed, students had to do some work on their IAs and EEs tonight.

425日,星期二,学生们清早就向海龟保护中心进发。学生们先认真的学习了如何握住乌龟,又小心的把海龟从水池里转移到安全的地方,然后他们步入水池仔细清洗了池壁和地砖上的藻类和污渍,最后细致检查每一只海龟是否有感染,并为有感染的海龟涂抹紫色的消毒药水。由于水池的体积之大,海龟的数量之多,学生们需要做大量的重复劳动并且相互配合以达到高效的运作。学生们在中午之前完成了所有工作,并且出发去当地的村庄吃午饭。途中,有的学生说已经开始想念可爱的海龟,因为他们有在家里把陆龟当作宠物饲养的经历,还有的学生认为这个活动比其他的活动更有意义,因为他们在帮助动物,让他们有一个更健康卫生的家园。午饭之后,稍作休息,学生们听了一堂关于海洋垃圾污染严重性的课和一场海滩清理的报告会。然后,学生们开始以实际行动投入到海洋环境的保护之中,他们细心地捡起在海滩上发现的垃圾,如玻璃、塑料和金属等,并将其分类收集在四个大袋子里。这项工作进展非常顺利,学生们做得也很棒!出乎意料的是,学生们觉得这项工作很有意思,因为这不仅跟在校期间“慈善社团”开展的“绿色出行”活动有异曲同工,而且同时可以一边沐浴着习习海风,一边聆听海鸟在碧蓝的海面上鸣叫,还可以看到几对贝壳类小动物在沙滩上缓缓爬行!晚餐也随之而至,在跟校长共同完成了一天的活动反思陈述以后,学生们也都回到各自的房间,晚上按照计划完成校内评估作业(IA)和专题论文(EE)的任务。
