Every Day is Earth Day! 松雅湖畔的地球日行动

CWA students will become internationally minded lifelong learners. That’s the vision of Changsha WES Academy. In IB there is a module called CAS (creativity, action and service)(cf. note 1). For Earth Day, ACTION is certainly indispensable!

April 22 was a Saturday and we celebrated International Family Day, so we moved our science event to Monday, April 24.

On this beautiful sunny day, CWA teachers and students arrived at Songya Lake at 9:00 am. It was a great way to embrace nature, who is after all, the best teacher.

长沙玮希国际学校的愿景是:培养具有国际化视野的终身学习者。我们的IB教学里面有个模块叫做CAS(creativity, action and service)(见注1)。地球日,我们当然要有ACTION!

4月22日,是周六,又恰逢我们学校的国际家庭日。因此,今年地球日的活动我们安排到了4月24日。

天空作美,阳光明媚,老师和同学上百人,早上9:00来到了松雅湖畔。投入大自然的怀抱,感觉非常美妙。其实,大自然才是最好的老师

In the morning, the students learnt at six stations:

Station 1: Water quality

Station 2: Flowers

Station 3: Tea science

Station 4: Quadrant sampling

Station 5: Art & Poetry

Station 6: Soil analysis

Local experts participated in this activity as well. Professor LIU Yong was present at the first station. He explained to the students how water cycles through a space suit and the way to extract mineral water which is good for people. Professor LEI Ming from the Hunan Agriculture University personally explained at the Soil analysis station. Our students learnt much from the knowledgeable professors.

As you know, pictures speak louder than words. Check out the following photos and you may understand the WES teaching style.

今天的活动内容非常的丰富。上午,学生需要先后参与到六个工作站的学习。

工作站一:水质检测与过滤

工作站二:花卉专题

工作站三:茶文化

工作站四:生物多样性抽样调查

工作站五:艺术与诗歌

工作站六:神奇的土壤及其保护

每个工作站都有专家在现场指导。坐镇第一站的是刘勇教授,他分享了太空设备的水循环方式以及提取对人体有益的矿泉水的方法。另外,湖南农业大学雷鸣教授也亲临现场,为同学们讲解“神奇的土壤及其保护”。专家们的学识渊博,同学们收获颇丰!

这是一个视觉时代,一张图片胜过千言万语!大家还是先看看这些美图,通过这些美图,您或许可以读懂玮希。

This is a moment captured during the activity, but some students might disagree since this experience will stay with them forever! Because even though Earth day has passed our community believes that, “Every day should be and is Earth day”!

In the afternoon, students took part in the Earth Day Race – a team building activity – where student teams competed against each other to search for clues around Songya Lake. This activity required physical energy and intelligence; individual wisdom and teamwork are both needed. That is the ideal classroom for students!

Learning in CWA allows students to happily develop themselves while combining knowledge and action!

看到这张图,您或许会有些疑虑:这又是在干什么?

这是下午活动的一个瞬间。我这样说,有同学可能会不同意。因为,对于他们来说,其实那是永恒!玮希国际学校的师生相信:每一天都应该是地球日,保护地球,永不止息。

下午的活动主要是团队活动,一个接一个的任务,一个接一个的线索,渐次铺开。紧张而又刺激。需要体力,更需要智力;需要个人智慧,更需要团队合作。这样的课堂,才是同学们梦寐以求的课堂!

学在玮希,不一样的玮希——开心快乐的玮希,全面发展的玮希,知行合一的玮希!

 

Note1 注1:

Creativity, activity, service (CAS) is one of the three essential elements that every student must complete as part of the Diploma Programme (DP).

CAS即创新、行动与服务,IB国际文凭课程的组成部分,学生必须完成相应的创新活动、体力活动和服务活动以达到相应的八个目标和集齐相应的活动时间以及完成CAS以外其他课程要求后才可毕业。
