在4月,中学生领袖带领小学部的同学们建立了交换商店。同学们从4月6日至23日将旧的物品带到学校来,每带来一件将获得一张写有自己名字的门票,并在四月的最后一周交换商店开业时进行置换。


小学生们按规定时间前往交换商店挑选自己喜爱的物品,中学的学长们在此期间收集货物、整理商店、帮助小学生们完成整个交换的过程。


交换商店帮助小学生们强化了对可持续性和回收利用的认识,对中学生而言,更是通过引领社区服务,让他们走出舒适区,培养领导力。

种植的乐趣



在4月,K-12年级的科学老师们为同学们四月份参观校园花园制定了详细的计划。每一个班级在一节科学课上来到学校的绿园参与动手种植活动,园丁们也将在那里演示如何种植和培育农作物。



每个年级的同学们都会亲手种植花生、土豆等农作物,锻炼了动手能力,深化科学认知,从而更好地理解生命周期与自然世界的联系,珍惜环境爱护地球。

美味的素食

Month


4月,为了透彻落实健康环保生活理念,学校安排每周一提供无肉素食的午餐。其意义在于不仅在于更新同学们的饮食习惯,了解植物蛋白,唤醒健康的生活方式,更是提高同学们的环保意识,承担世界公民的责任。


与此同时,中学学生会的哥哥姐姐们在小学低段和高段晨会上,分别向小学生介绍了植物性饮食减少温室气体、保护有限的新鲜水资源和自然生态、以及综合减少人为垃圾的方式。让小学部的同学们了解了可以代替肉类的植物蛋白的价值,认识了毛豆、黑豆、扁豆和鹰嘴豆等食品,意识到保护环境、水资源和植被的重要性。

中学生们主动承担起保护地球的责任,小学生们在学长学姐的带动下也聚沙成塔,为保护地球贡献出自己的微小力量,塑造自己成为有责任的世界公民。




地球月的这些精彩活动,并不是学校老师主导设计的,而是全程由学生们主动提出、设计并落实的。


增益课程总监 Farah 女士说道,“中学学生会提出庆祝地球月的想法,我们觉得这是一个非常好的尝试。因为他们愿意去为这个世界变好一点而思考应该怎么做,并愿意把这样的想法传递给他人、影响他人。学校愿意为同学们提供培养领导力和创造力的机会。此次学校全力支持学生会,帮助他们引领并设计了地球月的系列活动。”


作为学生会的一员,Nova也曾分享到,“在学生会的大家庭中,我算是一个特别理想主义的人,总会希望学校的社区可以成为一个非常公平有爱的地方,同学们在校园里都可以过得开心,学有所成。虽然这听起来这是一个非常大的概念,但具体到行动上,我们会在很多地方细心地去耕耘”。


相信地球月的活动只是开始,而烙印在孩子们心中的品格,将带他们走向更远的前方。


成长无处不在 


朝阳凯文致力于全人教育的培养,除了常规严谨的学术学习之外,学校还提供多种机会,培养孩子的综合素质和软实力,这种技能的提升和塑造不是一蹴而就的,而是通过学生会、晨会、服务项目等不同的形式,为同学们提供平等的机会,让他们的成长在校园里,随时发生。

领导力、表达能力和谈判能力都是孩子们成长过程中可以掌握的宝贵软技能。此次地球月活动,就是由中学学生会进行倡议的。朝阳凯文为学生提供宝贵的机会,展现他们的领导力。这其中包括任命一名男主席、一名女主席、多名学生级长及六所学院的中小学学院主席。同时,学校也从每个班级里选取学生代表,组成学生委员会,共同为优质的教育学习体验而努力。

晨会

学校每周按学部举行晨会,除由学部领导介绍本周的学习及活动重要事项,还会根据校历主题活动周设立各种学术、品德教育分享,如“地球月”、“防霸凌周”。学生会根据主题,向同学们分享相关知识,也会由学生主导进行阅读之星分享、脱口秀表演等分享。同学们通过自主组织、行动、分享、反思和改进的方式,感受和充分锻炼自己的软实力。

CAS是创意、行动和服务的缩写,是国际文凭IBDP的一部分,也是高中课程中最后两年的中心环节。在CAS中,学生需要接受新的挑战,并且获得走出舒适区拓展自我的机会。


此次地球月活动,就是CAS理念的落地和延展,同学们通过倡导活动、为全校进行环保理念宣讲以及为小学同学举办交换商店,恰恰体现了创意、行动和服务的完美结合。

 

五月将近。

虽然地球月的活动逐渐步入尾声,

但在同学们心中播下的健康环保理念的种子,

已悄然发芽。

孩子们在朝阳凯文的全人教育成长气氛下,

茁壮成长。




Our CKWA Earth Month is a good awakening of awareness for environmental protection.

This April, with the efforts of our Kaiwen Student Leaders,we have been leading a sustainable lifestyle within the community,

whilst developing growth and kindness.


Activities in Earth Month


April in CKWA is full of various activities themed around our Earth Month: students of all grades walk into the Green Garden, exchange items with each other in the Swap Shop, and enjoy a vegetarian lunch on Meatless Mondays … A series of activities were held both successfully and meaningfully, raising and strengthening the community’s awareness of environmental protection.

 

Swap Shop

 

In April, two swap shops were set up by our pupils with the help of our Secondary Student Leaders. Students were requested to bring in unwanted items to school, and for every item brought in, they received a ticket on which to write their name, and kept till the day of the scheduled visit to exchange the tickets for items. The aim of the Swap Shop which is to raise our students’ awareness about sustainability and recycling.

 

Garden Project


Every K-12 class was given the chance to visit our large on-campus school garden within one Science lesson to take part in a hands-on activity to plant some shoots, where the Gardeners on-site were there to demonstrate how to plant and nurture crops. Through the simple act of nurturing plants and crops, our students were given the opportunity to observe and understand the principles behind the life cycle whilst connecting with the natural world.

 

Meatless Mondays


For three Monday lunchtimes in April, the school cafeteria offered a meat-free lunch menu. The aim is to raise awareness of how reducing our meat consumption can benefit the environment by lowering greenhouse gas emissions, as well as conserving water and vegetation. Our student leaders introduced the health benefits of a vegetarian diet, and how meat alternatives can have equivalent nutritional values.

 

Please note that all these activities are not designed by the school, but originally came from the students themselves.

 

Ms. Farah Sun, Director of Enrichment Program, said “the idea of celebrating Earth Month was put forward by our Secondary Student Leaders, and we thought it was a very good attempt of thinking about actions to make the world better, and pass on such ideas within the community. The school is always providing opportunities to develop students’ skills in leadership and creativity. We will definitely fully support our Student Leaders, and help to ensure the success of this series of activities in Earth Month. “

 

Growth happens everywhere


CKWA is committed to holistic education. In addition to rigorous academic learning, the school also provides a variety of opportunities to cultivate children’s comprehensive qualification and soft power, which is not to achieve overnight, but through different chances such as student leadership team, assemblies, service projects etc., providing equal opportunities for all students so that their growth can happen on campus at any time.

 

Student Council


Abilities in leadership, representation and negotiation are valuable “soft skills” that students should master in their growth. Our school, college and class communities provide precious opportunities for them to show their leadership. This includes the appointment of a head boy and a head girl, school prefects and both secondary and primary house captains in all six houses. Meanwhile, we choose student representatives from each class to form the School Council so that students can make their voice heard.


Assembly


CKWA holds primary and secondary assemblies every week. Besides the key items regarding the study arrangement and special events of the week introduced by school leaders, we also introduce important topics such as “mental health week” and “anti-bullying week”. Crucially, we allow our

students to take the lead in the introduction of many of these topics, as well as encouraging them to address the school on concepts as wide ranging as their recent reading to inter school competitions they have participated in. Through independent organization, action, reflection, review and improvement, students develop their leadership skills.


Service Programme

 

Short for Creativity, Activity and Service, CAS is an integral and central part of the IBDP Curriculum in the last two years of high school curriculum. In the CAS programme, students will take on new challenges, and gain opportunities to stretch out of their comfort zone. To broaden students’ leadership opportunities, we deepen and extend our CAS programme, making it available to all of our secondary students. In this way, students have the chance to develop their skills in advance of starting the IBDP CAS, as well as being able to generate their own student led initiatives. During the current academic year, these have included a “Be the Change” project in which students drove forward plans to make our campus more environmentally sustainable. As May is approaching, the Earth Month is also ending. However, it is the constant persistence and initial aspiration of the Kaiwen community to provide students with an educational environment where growth occurs at any time.
