2016/17年度 三月份通訊

親愛的家長:

  

    農曆新年快到了,在拜訪親友之際,彼此或許會問及小朋友的成長情況,你們會有怎樣的反應呢?中國人都是較為謙虛的,你們可曾客套地回應親友們對子女的評價?例如聽到親友稱讚子女時,總會微笑地推搪,甚或自謙地用「懶」或「笨」來描述孩子的表現?換個角度想想,如果我們在親友和子女面前運用這些字詞,會對他們造成甚麼影響?原來在親友面前用一些較負面的字詞來品評孩子,可能傷害他們的自尊。   

你們有聽過「馬比龍效應」或「期待效應」嗎? 美國心理學家羅森塔爾 (Robert Rosenthal)做過一個有趣的心理學實驗,他來到一所鄉村小學,為各年級的學生做有關語言及推理能力之測驗,然而測驗完結後,他並沒有檢示及運用測驗結果,反而選擇隨機選出其中20%的學生,告訴他們的老師,指這些孩子很有潛力,將來可能比其他學生更有出息。八個月後,羅森塔爾再次來到這所學校,奇蹟出現了!他隨機指定的那20%的學生成績有了顯著的進步,實驗證明了人在被賦予更高的期望以後,他們會有更好的表現;反之,消極的批評會打擊他們的自信,影響結果。

  

蘇格拉底曾説過:「一個人是否有成就只有看他是否具有自尊心和自信心兩個條件。」教養孩子,理應建立在互相理解、愛護及尊重的基礎之上,從而幫助他們建立自信。我們要多肯定和重視小朋友的表現,配以具體的讚賞,切忌用消極負面的字詞評價孩子,避免在別人面前説自己的孩子很不濟,更不要拿孩子的短處與別人的長處比較,因為這樣會造成「標籤效應」,打擊他們的自信。

  

本校將於二月十八日(六)舉辦「攜手展步頌主恩──遠足暨步行籌款」,活動所籌得的款項,除了會用於發展學校的資訊科技設備、圖書及多媒體學習設施外,更會撥備作為籌建LG2「SMART Classroom」之用,以配合學校電子學習和STEM的發展,希望家長們能鼎力支持是次活動,為改善及優化本校教學設施出一分力,一同體會團結友愛的精神,見證神恩,亦請大家繼續為此事代禱。正如聖經所言:「那賜種給撒種的、賜糧給人吃的,必多多加給你們種地的種子,又增添你們仁義的果子,叫你們凡事富足,可以多多施捨,就藉著我們使感謝歸於神。」(林前9:10-11)

  

為使家長更能瞭解本校課程特色、教學模式及子女的學習情況,本校將於二月十三日(一)為三、六年級舉行家長觀課,安排開放第一節課堂及進行課後討論,希望家長積極參與,以了解孩子的在學表現。另外,本校將於二月二十五日(六)上午舉行「家長日」,屆時會派發成績表,家長可與老師面談,了解子女在校的情況,交流教養經驗。我們作為師長,應該欣賞孩子付出的努力,鼓勵他們突破自己,勇於面對挑戰,幫助孩子了解自己的優點,發揮長處。家長日當天會增設兩場升中講座,邀請畢業同學回校分享中學生活之點滴,歡迎有興趣了解派位機制的家長們自行選擇場次參加。

學校將於二月七日至十日期間,為四、五、六年級學生舉辦「台灣文化交流團」四日三夜的考察團,讓他們親身了解台灣的發展風貌、歷史背景及文化生活,透過遊學體驗,加強自我管理技巧及提升團隊合作精神。是次活動的領隊老師包括嚴健華主任、王愷琦老師和林綺華老師,在此先感謝老師的付出及家長的支持,希望透過活動讓學生享受多元化的學習經歷。

願新一年我們繼續彼此分享,互相勸勉,為我們的家人及朋友代禱,求神賜予祝福和帶領,讓關愛洋溢校園。最後,誠心送上聖經的話語以激勵同學,希望大家在新的一年不斷求進﹕「若有人在基督裡,他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了。 」(林後5:17)

敬祝各位新春快樂!同沐主恩!

2016-2017 March Newsletter

16th February, 2017

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

  Lunar New Year is coming. When you visit your friends and relatives, they might ask about the achievement of your children. How would you respond? Chinese people are fairly modest. Have you ever responded to their comments modestly? When they praise your children, have you used words like “stupid” and “lazy” to describe your children? What would be the impact of such behaviour? In fact, publicly commenting children with negative wordings may harm their self-esteem.  Have you ever heard of the "Pygmalion Effect" or "Expectancy Effect"? Robert Rosenthal, an American psychologist, conducted an interesting psychological experiment in a rural elementary school. The participating students were asked to finish a test which assesses their language and reasoning ability. After the test, Rosenthal did not evaluate the results. He randomly selected 20% of the students and told their teachers that those students had potentials and their future would be more promising. Eight months later, Rosenthal visited the school again and there was a miracle. The 20% students that he randomly selected had obvious improvement and his experiment proves that people tend to have better performance if they are given higher expectations. On the contrary, negative criticism will weaken their confidence.

  Socrates once said, "Whether a person has attainments depends on whether he has self-esteem and self-confidence." Parenting should be based on mutual understanding, love and respect so as to help children build confidence. We need to recognize children’s performance and praise them concretely. We should avoid negatively commenting on children in public and comparing their weaknesses with others’ strengths, which may create the “labeling effect” and damage children’s confidence.

  Our school fund raising walk-a-thon will be held on 18th February (Saturday). Apart from the purchase more books for the library and the development of IT equipment and multimedia learning facilities, the fund will be used to build the SMART Classroom in LG2 so as to facilitate the development of e-learning and STEM in our school. I hope parents can support and participate in this school event to experience the joyfulness of participating in the walk-a-thon and reunion in God’s grace! Just like what Bible tells us, “Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:10-11).

  In order to provide parents with a better understanding of our school's curriculum, teaching models and children's learning, lesson observation for P.3 and P.6 students will be arranged in the first lesson on 13th February (Monday). I hope that parents can actively participate so as to know more about your children’s performance and learning progress at school. In addition, Parents’ Day will be organized in the morning on 25th February. Parents can get both students’ academic reports and character records, so they can talk with the teachers to know more about your children’s performance. As teachers, we should appreciate children’s effort; encourage them to take up challenge; and help them understand and exploit their strengths. On Parents’ Day, two sessions about secondary school entrance will be organized. Some graduates will be invited to share their secondary school life. If you are interested in knowing about the allocation mechanism, you are welcome to join one of the sessions.

A four-day and three-night study tour - "Taiwan Cultural Exchange Program" will be organized for P.4 to P.6 students from 7th to 10th February. Students will be able to learn more about the development, historical background and culture of Taiwan. Through the experience, their self-management skills and team spirit can also be enhanced. Mr. Yim Kin Wa, Miss Wong Hoi Kei and Miss Lam Yee Wa will be the leading teachers. I would like to thank the teachers for their efforts and parents for your support. We do hope students will have a joyful learning experience.

Entering a new year, we would like to continue to share with each other, to pray for our family and friends, and ask for God’s grace and love to come upon Kei Tsz. Finally, I would like to encourage students with a Bible scripture, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). I wish for everyone to continue to have a prosperous progression in the New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year! May God’s love and peace be with you always!

Sincerely,

Chiu Kit Wa

Principal
