前往华侨大学之前,林小英老师为我们介绍集美学村的“龙舟池”。龙舟池位于集美中学道南楼旁边。这里景色优美,每年五月,还会举办划龙舟比赛呢!



今天,我们在华侨大学体验了生动有趣的舞龙课。在新加坡,我们一般只会在远处观看舞龙表演。而现在有机会近距离接触,每一位同学都非常期待。这一天,我们学会了一些简单的舞龙造型,如“中字造型”、“心形造型”、“龙字造型”等。



在鳌园,虽然迎着冷风,但是每一位同学依然专注地聆听林忠阳老师讲解。鳌园原本是一座小岛,三面临海,“鳌园”因此而得名。每当海水涨潮时,这里就会呈现出一幅“大鳌戏珠”的景象。



在陈嘉庚纪念馆,林忠阳老师向我们讲解了“诚毅”二字的含义。林老师说,陈嘉庚先生用其一生的毅力,实现他人生的忠诚。愿南侨中学的学生能向陈嘉庚先生看齐,并时刻谨记“诚毅”的校训,在未来的生活中,都会“诚以待人,毅以处事”。

NCHS Science Exchange Programme at Kyoto, Japan Day 3

On the third day of the trip, we visited Momoyama High School, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Myoshinji Taizoin and Myoshinji Temple. In the morning at Momoyama High School, we first attended a Science lesson about exoplanets and the existence of extra terrestrial intelligence. Immediately after the engaging Science lesson, we had some interaction with the Japanese students for English lessons. Although there was a minor language barrier, we still managed to interact with ease through the use of basic sentences and hand gestures.
Next, we visited the Fushimi Inari Shrine. We learnt about folklores concerning the shrine. For example, the fox is known as the messenger of the gods, so statues of foxes are placed in front of the Shrine with a key in their mouths to guard the shrine. After visiting the shrine and making a wish, we proceeded to the Myoshinji Taizoin for a Zen Meditation session. The Zen Meditation session was a very unique experience as none of us had ever tried Zen Meditation, especially in such a tranquil and idyllic place. After that, we tried a Japanese-style pancake known as Okonomiyaki for dinner. The dinner was very delicious as again, nobody had tried such a wonderful and unique food. Finally, we headed back to Daishin-in Temple for retirement.

Humanities Learning Journey - Vietnam 2015 : Day 3

Today, we visited the Fairy Spring. It was a magical experience. The landscape was amazing as the stream meanders its way through the dramatic dunes. Signs of weathering could be seen on the rocks and stepping on the oxidised sand barefooted was a first time experience for all of us! As we ventured further we met several tourists of various backgrounds and it was a nice experience meeting not just the locals but these tourists who were very forthcoming . This definitely enhanced our understanding of the relationship between human activity and the natural landscape.

We also visited a family-run fish sauce 'factory' where we uncovered the secret recipe of how a good bottle of fish sauce is made. Many mud pots of fish sauce were placed under the sun in order to facilitate the fermentation process. What was most eye opening was the amount of hard work put into the production of the fish sauce. Instead of relying on technology, pure manual labour was observed from the labeling of the bottles to the filling up of the bottles - one bottle at a time.

We look forward to sharing with you our Mangrove experience tomorrow!
