Great impression on the teachers

September 6, 2010

出乎意料 Out of my mind

第一次體驗深圳的幼兒園, 比我想像中好得多。首先, Erika讀的是小一班, 大約有十四位小朋友在一個小班裡。有三位老師(包括外籍老師)和一位專照顧孩子日常需要的阿姨, 他們都合作得很好的。

This is my first time to experience the kindergarten in Shenzhen, China. I used to study in Hong Kong when I was very young. So, I really had no idea how it’s gonna be in China!  I am actually very impressed with the school that Erika attends. She is now in “K1”, and there are around 14 students in this class with 3 teachers (including one Foreign teacher who is a Canadian.) plus one more nanny for helping the kids on eating, toilet training…etc.

每一天早上, 其中一至兩位老師都站在大門等候同學們來上學, 給我們’接送咭’後便帶著他們上課室。 小孩子在步行到課室前都會測量體溫, 若有發燒的當然要回家或去看醫生哦!

Every morning, one or two of the teacher group will stand in front of the entrance door to wait for their students. They will give us a ‘pick up kids’ card when you leave your kids to them. Then, they will have body temperature check, and then take them to the classroom.

不久(大約是十時左右),我便會收到楊老師的短訊, 楊老師是’園醫’, 她都會很用心地把今天小孩子的菜單傳給所有父母,好讓我們安心,知道他們會吃甚麼!

When I am home, around 10am, I will receive a SMS from the “kindergarten doctor”,she will tell me what kind of food they will take for the whole day.

The following is the menu that they sent to us last Friday:

例如昨天的餐有:

早餐 : 玉米面饅頭, 肉絲米粉 (breakfast: corn bun, noodles with pork)

早點 : 牛奶 (milk)

午餐 : 香菇炆雞, 香干上海青,蒸水蛋,紫菜蝦米湯,米飯 (Lunch: chicken, veggies, steam egg, Chinese soup, and a bowl of rice)

午點 : 銀耳蓮子湯水,火腿花卷,西瓜 (afternoon snack:  Chinese sweet soup, Ham roll (with sausage inside) and watermelon.)

單看菜單就知道她們用很多心思去弄餐給小孩子吃,雖然不知道她們會吃多少,但起碼知道她們有這麼的選擇! Erika昨天特別對我說很喜歡”火腿花卷”,她說:很好吃的哦, 火腿入面有香腸的! 這是她第一次不用我去問而告訴我有甚麼好吃的東西。

When you look at the menu, you know that they really put their hearts in making the yummy food for the kids. Although we don’t know how much the kids will eat, but at least, the school made an effort to have more varieties of food for the kids to choose. Erika doesn’t like greens, but at least, she can take the other so that she won’t be too hungry.  She did tell me that she loved the Ham roll, just adored the sausage there. This was her first time to tell me what she loves to eat in school. hahhaa

到了下午去接女兒放學, 我們做家長的在外面等小孩在學校裡面排好隊後,一個一個的出來找媽媽(同時間,做家長的也要排隊, 把接送咭給老師,讓她叫你的孩子出來。) 這學校的保安很不錯的,不會讓陌生人進去,而且一定要帶接送咭來接小孩, 確保小孩真的’接對了’。 保安的設備也頗好的, 早上和下午的接送時間都有’公安’在場, 放學還多一位公安,因為可能放學比上學擠擁。

Finally comes to 4pm, and all the parents can go to school and pick up their kids. We have to bring the ‘pick up kids’ card , and then give them to the teachers and picked up your kids. If you forget to take the card, ha, it will be a big problem, they will not let you to take your kids with you. Actually, I like their security system too, whenever it’s drop off/pick up kids time, there are at least one or two policeman (policewoman) there. And they never let strangers step into the school area.  (So, you must have your ‘pick up kid’ card with you.)

好了, 到了晚上, 我們班的老師又會再發短訊給家長,告訴今天全班小孩子的情況, 每星期末再有一個短訊是個別小孩子的情況, 十分的用心,勞力地保持和家長有互動的。 我十分喜歡她們這一種溝通的方法, 如果她們用電話的方式,可能老師連睡覺的時間也沒有, 因為很多家長都可能會十分緊張, 說很久也說不完。 給短訊的話,多數都能接收, 又可以直接回覆到她的手機,是十分方便的溝通方法。

Well, at night, all the parents will receive a SMS from the teacher, and she will tell you how’s the class going overall. And at the end of each week, she will send an individual messages to each parent for telling how’s your kids do in school. And she will point out good things and also other things that your kids need to improve at home and school.

I really love this way of communication, you can imagine how much work the teachers have to do every day. They spend so much time with the kids from 7:30am till 4pm.. and then, they have to go home and take care their own kids. Afterwards, she still have to work with the computer because of sending SMS to the parents. I couldn’t imagine how much rest they can have everyday.

我每一次放學接女兒的時候,都很有衝動想上前給老師們一個熊抱(big big hug), 看到她們整天和小孩子們一起, 面容告訴我她們已經很累很累(很殘的樣子!), 滿頭大汗的送我女兒出來! 我覺得她們真的很讚! 因為無論她們有多累,她還是會對著我們和小孩子展開親切的笑容! 你是能看得出她們是很有愛心的,因為她們對小孩子說話的口吻都是很溫柔的, 但卻又有嚴厲的一面, 我也想學她們這種態度呢!

And I am very appreciated of the teachers, because no matter how tired they are at the end of the day, they can still smile to you when you pick up the kids, and willing to talk with you if you have any questions regarding the school, class., food… etc.

九月十日是中國的教師節, 我的心已經很著躍的想為她們做點東西….

但我卻不太清楚可以送什麼東西, 我又不想太誇張, 只想做點點心意便好了。

(咭是一定會預備的,但還有甚麼可以做呢?)

Sep 10 will be “Teacher’s Day” in China, I am planning to do something for the lovely teachers, but, other than cards (will do that for sure) , what kind of stuffs I can make for them?  They really deserve something good….

What do you think?
