In the Youth Development class of December 5th, eighth graders came to the reflection meeting of Service Learning for this semester in the Xian Mian building annex.
Presenters were nervous and excited to show everyone what they had done since the start of the semester. Eighth graders are teenagers, and learning about how to serve our community efficiently and effectively is appearing to be more and more important to them. In the past three months, quite a lot of service was done by numerous service learning programs.
There were seventeen presenters in total, and every one of them shared a distinct, yet captivating, experience. Elizabeth Y from 8(6) reflected about her job in the Powerlong Art Museum; Stella Pan from 8(8) shared her stories of making posters with friends. There was also the Tutoring Group, the Indigo Workshop, the Smile Charity Group, the CCST Group, and many more. Except for the on-campus groups, many groups are student-led and student-founded. There were a lot of intriguing ideas of how service can help group members, the school, and even society. The Video Studio that makes school-rule videos for primary students, introduced by Jessie from 8(5), have a lot of fun, and she also expanded on the studio’s future plans and possible improvements. Although the Dunhuang Culture Promoting Group founded by Maxwell from 8(3) had just started, he was also sure that all the students and teachers will enjoy and learn from the group’s future articles and videos about Dunhuang. The SHSID Futian Group presented by Ryan from 8(4) has done a lot of charity over the past weeks, and a lot of children will be benefited in the future. There were also Speak Up, the Student’s Academy of Science, Voice from Beyond, and etc.
This Service Learning Reflection activity isn’t just about introducing all the fun service learning groups, but also teaching each other how to service others more efficiently in the rest of academic life. This reflection might only be a tiny bit of activity in students’ lives, but what it brings to them and imprints on their hearts is unarguably worthwhile.
在12月5日的青少年发展课上，八年级的同学们来到了先棉堂辅楼礼堂进行本学期的服务学习反思大会。八年级正是认识和学习如何有效服务社区和社会的好时候，在过去的三个月中，同学们经历和实践了各种社会服务，这次的反思大会对于他们来说是非常有意义的一次总结。这次共有十七位演讲者。其中，有些同学所在的服务性学习小组是已经传承了多年的项目，这些小组被历届八年级同学传承下来，最久的已经有了五六年的历史。比如，8（6）班的余怀天讲述了她在宝龙美术馆学习小组的学习经历以及她在未来如何进步。8（8）班的潘奕忱讲述了她在海报制作小组的成就和她所学到的提升技巧。除了这些，还有辅导小组、靛蓝工作室、微笑社、教室卫生保护小组，等等。历届成员将这些小组传承创新，使其拥有了更多活力。除了校内服务小组，还有不少学生们自主创立的服务小组，其中一些非常具有创新性和服务性。8（5）班李祺善创建的视频制作小组非常热门，他们专门为小学生制作以宣传校园守则为目标的视频，并且她还介绍了那些将来他们可能做的视频主题。8（3）班的何思熠所创建的敦煌文化传播小组虽然刚开始不久，但组员们已经非常热血沸腾地准备学习、传播有关敦煌的知识。8（4）班的戈墨川所创建的福田小组已经在过去的几周内做了不少慈善募捐活动，并将继续那些有意义的行动。除了这些，还有Speak Up、学生科学学堂、Voice from Beyond等形式多样，多姿多彩的自创小组。这次服务学习反思大会不只是关于介绍年级里各式各样的学习小组，还给了同学们互相学习和借鉴的机会，而这也会对他们今后的社团和志愿服务有帮助。这次活动对于学生们来说可能只是一次很小的活动，但却已经默默地在他们心中种下了服务社会的种子。Written by Maxwell 8(3)Supervised byMr.Key, Gu YutingPicturesby8(5) Ethan, 8(5) Jerry, 8(6) Alicia
