Charity Performance for the Elderly丨关爱长者,大爱无疆

Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer’s, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time. A large number of people will become elders in the coming 30 years. On average, a new case occurs every three seconds. AD not only brings great burden to modern society and family, but also seriously threatens the physical and mental health of the elderly.

认知症(俗称:老年痴呆症)是一种以记忆功能和其他领域认知功能进行性退化为特征的临床综合症。目前全球有5000万左右的认知症患者,预计2030年全球认知症患者将达7500万,平均每三秒就有一个新的病例出现。认知症不仅给现代社会和家庭带来巨大的负担,也严重威胁老年人的身心健康,是当今社会面临最大的健康危机。


Caring is one of the attributes of the IB Learner Profile. In order to promote traditional virtue of respecting the elderly and create a good atmosphere of social harmony, the International Lower Secondary students gave a charity performance for the elderly on January 13th, bringing them plenty of joy.

关爱他人是IB国际学校的十大素养之一,为了弘扬尊老、敬老的传统美德,努力营造社会和谐的良好氛围,1月13日,长沙玮希国际学校国际初中部5名学生在Mr. Ronan的带领下,作为受邀学生代表来到阿默认知症照护中心给长者们带了精彩的歌曲串烧+乐器演奏表演:“A New Year’s Ho Hey MEDLEY”。表演结束后,禹师睿和方语涵同学意犹未尽,与主持人沟通后,再次登场,即兴演唱了今年最火的歌曲“卡路里”,同学们的青春活力给长者们带来了无限欢乐。


Music therapy is a common and effective method to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Rhythm, harmony and melody can relieve stress. Music can improve one’s mood when he is upset. The elders enjoyed the good times brought by musical performances.

音乐疗法是一种治疗阿默认知症的常见有效的方法。节奏、和声、旋律等带来的刺激作用可以舒缓压力。音乐是最好的疗养师,翩翩而来的乐符,深入人心,它也是充满感染力的,可以调理情绪进而影响身体。长者们一起享受了同学们的音乐表演带来的美好时光。


In addition to the knowledge in textbooks, we attach much importance to social practice activities. This event not only enhanced the students’ sense of social responsibility, but also improved their practical ability. Students can feel what the love is between family members, especially if parents are able to guide the students to understand what the home is about and why the world needs to support such facilities for our elderly.

除了书本上的知识,同学们也需要参与社会实践活动,教育是无处不在的,可以在学校,也可以在其他地方。这次活动不仅增强了学生们的社会责任感,而且还提高了他们的社会实践能力。同学们亲身体会到长者们与家人们之间的亲情,感受到家庭温暖的重要性。


Caring for others brings us happiness. Be a caring learner and help create a better world!

关爱是一种幸福 ,得到他人的关爱也是一种幸福,关爱他人更是一种幸福。


Special thanks to Ms. Terry, Mr. Ronan, Ms. Michelle and all the parents for supporting this activity.
