“女生应有的基本个人形象仪容” 讲座

什么是个人形象仪容?它又有何重要性值得我们探讨?2022年8月12日(星期五)早上10时至11时半,执业形象顾问何国恩小姐应我校韩江中学的邀请,在我校林连登礼堂为女学生分析并分享女生应有的基本个人形象仪容及其重要性。此讲座的宗旨为帮助女生提升自己的形象,并为她们提供建议,帮助她们以形象仪容的自信,独立的展示自己。
受邀到我校演讲的专业形象顾问何国恩小姐表示,很荣幸受邀与我校学生分享她的经验,并能够帮助学生乘他们在青春期成长的过程中建立自我,给他们见识到一个全新的道路,而形象仪容便是这次讲座的主题。何国恩小姐表示形象仪容的重要性往往在于它会影响他人对我们的印象,尤其是对我们的第一印象。而形象仪容取决于你如何穿搭及打扮自己,还有我们的走路姿势、坐姿、谈吐和气质等。为了让我们更能理解形象与仪容的重要性,她分享了自己的经历。在她年轻时,因为无法为自己的形象仪容进行投资,无法很好地展现自己,这导致面试受挫,使她无法找到工作。虽然她在学生时期成绩优异,但由于她的形象仪容,没有多少公司愿意雇用她。她慢慢地意识到投资于自己的形象仪容是多么重要,从而引导她学会了投资自己的形象仪容,使她能够自给自足,自信地展示自己,这让她向成功的道路迈出第一步,并让她走到现在的位置;即成为一位著名的形象顾问,并且有来自世界各地成千上万的客户向她寻求帮助,以建立他们的自我形象和提高他们的气质。
何小姐热衷于助人,并能够帮助像中学生这样的年轻人更专业、更有序地展示自己,以及在外部和内部都有自信的肢体语言。她还表示有幸能够在许多其他学校进行更多的讲解。她的名言“你越早投资,你长大后获得的回报就越好。”她认为,在年轻时树立形象比年长时树立形象更有优势,因为你仍然年轻,这样做也更轻而易举。如果你认为这将花费太多时间,或者很难照顾好自己身体的每个部位,她建议学生可将注意力集中在面部,因为大多数人都会以你的面部来判断你的形象仪容, 如:皮肤、眼睛、嘴唇、鼻子等。因此,她希望我校的女生能够从课程中学到一些新的东西,并改变自己的思维方式。
尽管何小姐现在已经非常成功,但她也经历了很多艰苦的努力,付出了很多心血、汗水和泪水,才能获得如今的成就。 由于她年纪较大才开始发展形象顾问的职业生涯,因此受到很多的批评和歧视,因为许多人认为她年纪太大了,无法开创自己的职业生涯,这些看法来源于形象顾问这个职业通常会在年轻期,年龄大约30岁时开始,但她已没有如他们般的青春了。尽管她面对着别人对她大器晚成的批评,但通过与她的助手 Jessica Lu 的合作,她也能够将自己的职业生涯发挥到极致。她们最近还与槟州政府携手合作举办了一场女性会议 — Women Impact Makers Conference — 以建立更大、更有影响力的规模,以达到州级的形象顾问的地位,并进行多次一对一的客户会议。
何小姐的演讲充满了鼓舞人心和激情澎湃的话语,震撼了学生的心灵,增强了学生的信心。她建议学生跟随自己的内心和想法,不要为他人而改变自己,而是为自己而改变自己,只有坚持不懈与努力,奇迹才会发生。她的评论不仅为学生们指明了自信和抱负的道路,也教会了他们如何更好地展示自己和了解周围的环境,尽管学生还很稚气年轻,但不要让任何人占他们的便宜。
最后,我校校长江美俐硕士表示,她非常感激能够为她的学生邀请到这样鼓舞人心和模范的角色,能够有人伸出援助之手,帮助她教育和教导她的学生。 她还说,她把她所有的学生都当作自己的孩子,希望他们能够立志成为伟人,让她有朝一日可以引以为豪,回首往事。
On the 12th of August 2022, Han Chiang High School has invited a professional image consultant over to the school to host a talk for the female students of Han Chiang High School on how to present themselves, help them to improve their image as well as give them the advice to help them in their confidence and to be able to present themselves independently.
Introduction
He Guo En, the professional image consultant that was invited to have a talk in the school stated that she was grateful to be invited to present a talk and share her experiences with our students and be able to help students to construct themselves as they are still young and have their youth. She brought up her past where she wasn’t able to invest in her image and couldn’t present herself well which led to her being unable to get jobs. Although she has straight As as a student, not many companies wanted to hire her due to her imagery. She slowly realised how important it is to invest in her image thus leading her on learning to invest in her self-image to be more self-sufficient and confident in presenting herself, bringing her to where she is now – a well-known image consultant with thousands of customers from all across the globe asking her for help in constructing their self-image and finding out who they truly are.
She thrives to help people and to be able to help younger people like high-schoolers in presenting themselves more professionally and neatly as well as having confident body language both externally and internally, also expressing to be able to have more talk sessions in many other schools. Her quote says,” The earlier you invest, the better rewards you reap when you grow older.” She believes that establishing an image at a young is better than establishing it when you’re older as you still have youth and it is easier for one to do so as well. If you think it will take too much time or it would be hard to take care of yourself on every part of your body, she advices you to focus on the face as most people judge your face: skin, eyes, lips, nose etc. Therefore, she hopes the female students of HCHS were able to learn something from the session, something new and a change of mindset.
Behind the Scenes
Though she is extremely successful now, it took a lot of hard work as well as blood, sweat and tears for her to arrive where she is now. As she started her career of being an image consultant at an older age, she was criticized and looked down upon as many think that she is too old and wouldn’t be able to start her career because being an image consultant usually starts at the age of around 30 where one still has their youth, but she didn’t. Despite the fact that she faced criticism from others and her past, she was able to extend her career to the fullest as well by working alongside her assistant, Jessica Lu Hooi Sin, recently hosting a women’s conference – Women Impact Makers Conference – joining hands with the Penang state government, collaborating and joining hands to make a bigger and more impactful scale, reaching state levels as an image consultant with many one-to-one customer sessions.
Aftermath
The talk she gave was full of inspiring, encouraging and passionate words that shook students’ minds and raised their confidence in so. She advices students to follow their hearts and minds, do not change themselves for other people. If they truly would want to change for themselves, only then will the magic take place and truly change. Not only did the talk show students paths of being confident and aspiring, but it also teaches them lessons on how to bring themselves out more and to be aware of their own surroundings, not easily allowing anyone to take advantage of them although they are teenagers.
The principal of Han Chiang High School was more than grateful to be able to invite such inspiring and model roles for her students and also be able to have someone to lend a helping hand in helping her educate and teach her students. She voiced that she takes all her students as if they were her children, hoping that they can aspire and become great adults that she can be proud of and look back on one day.

Geography Field Trip 16/7/2022

First Attraction – Paddy Field
Firstly, we went to the paddy field. Paddy we had seen was yet fully mature. There is a small road for us to get along the paddy field and enjoy the picturesque view of it. Coconut trees are right beside the paddy field, whisking the deepest hues of green and yellow green. I believe that most of us always neglect the beauty of the paddy field and give no attention to it everytime we pass through it. Hence, this trip gives us a chance to truly have a look at it. The explanation was given by the farmer in Bahasa Melayu, and was then translated to English by Ms Anu. According to the farmer, there is a river called Sungai Kelit right along the paddy field, hence, it is convenient for the farmer to carry out an irrigation system to water the paddy. They will stop the irrigation system 20 days before they harvest it. It takes 100-110 days to cultivate rice. During the cultivation, the farmer uses pesticides to kill bugs, insects that breed in the paddy field, as well as the wild grass grown around to ensure that the paddy grows well, without receiving any damages by them. After the cultivation, they will harvest it and send their crops to factories in order to produce rice. Better quality paddies collected will be used as seeds for the next cultivation. There are a few conditions which are very crucial to ensure that the paddy grows well. Firstly, the paddy requires 30-32 degree celsius of sunlight. Secondly, it needs 2000 mm of rainfall. The farmer also stated that the best harvesting time for them is in January since it rains more frequently from June to December.
After the explanation, students walked leisurely along the paddy field, and took photos with their friends to record down this memorable experience. Overall, this is a great experience for us to take a step in to learn about paddy fields. We usually learn about the function of the paddy field in our textbook, however, this time, we were able to listen to a more specific explanation and data on how paddy grows by an experienced farmer, which I think that we had achieved one of the objectives of having this field trip.
Second attraction – Waterfall
We visited the waterfall and we had our brunch there as well. Some of them enjoyed the Nasi Lemak, but some of them think that it is too spicy for them. The waterfall had staircases that led to the top. Sadly we did not get to climb all the way up the stairs, as it was too dangerous and risky to do so. After we had our brunch, Thephila, Xin Ru from class J2E1 gave us a brief explanation on the formation of the waterfall, while Wong Yun Zheng from class SE11 talked about one of the erosion processes, attrition after that. Then, Ms Anu showed us where the plunge pool is at. Everything went smoothly, but an incident happened that broke the peace. One of the students accidentally dropped his water tumbler, and was eager to get his tumbler back. He thought that the water was shallow, so he jumped into the river. Out of his expectations, the water was deep, and he wet himself.
This gives us a lesson, we should never do something without permission during a field trip. Other than that, everything went well.
Third attraction – Bee farm
We also visited the bee farm. There we learned how the farm was set up for the bees as well as how bee houses were made and how bees make honeycomb: They will first sip the nectar as food, then produce honey in their stomach. At the same time, they will collect young leaves to build their house, forming “containers of their honey.” and build a roof for their house. It takes 1 month for these bees to form a full box of honey. The owner of these bees will collect honey from these houses and sell it to earn money.
Students heaved a sigh of relief when they heard that all those are stingless bees, and tried to approach them out of curiosity. The owner of the bee farm even let us sip the honey directly from the honeycomb. Some of our teachers did that, but some just refused. There, we get to know some facts about honey.
Fourth attraction – Prawn farm
In order to reach the prawn farm, we had to walk along a slope. The prawn farm had 60 ponds and totalled 60 hectares. Some of the ponds were dirty, others were dry but most had water inside. The prawns were around just 2 to 3 months old but they would be harvested every 5 months since they are fully mature by then. Prawns are nocturnal, hence, we can’t really see the prawns during daytime. However, these prawns will float on the surface of the water at night. Even so, detailed explanations and demonstrations on how they harvest these prawns were still given by the farmer. We got the opportunity to have a look at the various types of prawns and take photos of them. Everyone was so exhilarated to have a look at it. All in all, despite the disappointment on the condition of the prawn farm, we’ve learned a lot from the farmer and appreciate the opportunity to learn.
Fifth attraction – Coffee plantation and river
We had our lunch in the area around the coffee plantation. There was a river where we also carried out two experiments, i.e. the experiments for the velocity of the river and the depth of the river. After the experiment, we also had chicken rice there. Meanwhile there were also bicycles provided near the river, and some of them enjoyed riding the bicycles with their friends. Meanwhile the coffee plantation also provided us with an explanation on how the coffee beans were prepared and how the coffee was made. The coffee beans were dried for 6 months before they were fried for 30 minutes until they turned blackish brown. As for how coffee is prepared, they first fry sugar for 30 minutes. Then fry the coffee bean in 40 degree celsius for 30 minutes. Then they grind the coffee bean to coffee powder. The owner also prepared a mug of coffee and poured it out into cups and gave it to teachers. Teachers responded that the coffee was nice.

World Scholar’s Cup Regional Round Champion

298363862_5484456738278071_2168267011673690745_n
It has always been said that teamwork makes the dream work – a cliché saying that proves to be true. On 15th and 16th April of 2022, Han Chiang High School participated in the Regional Round of the World Scholar’s Cup, held in Prince of Wales Island International School (POWIIS); against many scholars, 15 of Han Chiang’s very own came back triumphed with 100 medals and 11 trophies.
Among them, 4 students stood out: a dream team in the senior division – consisting of Estelle Sia Yu Qi from SE11, Samuel Phun Wei Xen from S1, and Yap Q-Ann from SE12 – as well as an emerging champion in the junior division – Wong Yeok Hei from J1E1. Yeok Hei and Estelle both claimed the School Top Scholar accolades in the Junior and Senior divisions respectively, emerging as the First Overall Champion Scholars of their own divisions. In the Senior division, Samuel and Q-Ann were not far behind, attaining trophies as the first, and second Champion Scholar runner-ups. As a team, Estelle, Samuel, and Q-Ann also obtained First Place Champion Team, scoring exceptionally in every event.
Expressing astonishment, Wong Yeok Hei stated that she never expected to be able to win so many awards in her first year of participation. She emphasised her gratitude towards her teammates – who had helped her come through this journey – for being there for her and progressing together. Behind her striking achievements, at times she wanted to give up with the competition clashing with her exams. Though in a tight spot, she overcame these difficulties effortlessly.
As for Estelle, who has been involved in this program for a while now, she was elated when she saw groundbreaking results at the competition. Her devotion to the program lasted throughout the pandemic, and in 2022, to participate again felt like a dream. She admits that balancing the World Scholar’s Cup and the rest of her life can be difficult sometimes, as she needs to work towards her own academic goals. Regardless, she feels that the program is worth the effort. With her teammates, she believes that things will work out and hopefully they will come out victorious in the Global Round.
Likewise, Samuel Phun has persevered throughout the 2-year hiatus and was in disbelief at his awards. Describing the program to be unique and fun, Samuel dedicates time and effort towards this competition. Similarly, Q-Ann was startled and delighted to have won. Unlike her teammates, the pandemic took a toll on her mental health. Gaining back her motivation, she performed amazingly in the regional round. To balance out her studies and the program, she makes sure to sort out her priorities.
In September, the Global Round will be commenced in Bangkok, and this year, the students hope to see new, improved results on the global theatre!

日本盆舞节(Bon Odori)

日本盆舞节(Bon Odori),又称日本鬼节,目的是为了敬奉以及欢迎先人的灵魂“重返人间”,让任何离去的亡魂一同相聚并欢快共舞。由于疫情的原因,我国已经有三年没有举行这样重大且欢快的庆典了。在6月30日的槟城盆舞节上,现场超过百个的日本与本地美食档口,各个角落都摆放着跟日本文化息息相关的装饰,许多人还为了迎合这次的日本为庆典身穿日本传统服装,惊艳无比。值的光荣的是,在众多表演团体之中,本校槟城韩江中学的流行乐团十分有幸参与了本次表演。
流行乐团总共派出了6位学生参与表演,参演歌曲则是3首日本歌曲。其中一位表演者是来自J21的卢品淳同学。她在采访中表示,自己是第一次参加并表演在如此盛大的日本庆典。她认为设立在大操场中央的舞台也十分独特,四面八方观众的到来让她既兴奋又激动。她分享道,这次的表演曲目《心做し Kokoronashi》是很感性且悲伤的歌曲,曲子描述的机器男孩与女孩的故事,带出了人们需要珍惜自己拥有的那颗“会跳动的心脏”。此外,卢同学还坦言自己上台之前的确会有小紧张,但是当自己上了舞台就不紧张了,并且还很享受自己在舞台上的表演。
卢同学补充道,她和队员们用了2至3个星期来准备这次的表演,包括了选歌曲、记歌词、队员配合度等等。她认为每一次可以表演的机会都不容错过,因此自己想把握和珍惜每次的表演机会。卢同学还表示,由于这是一场盛大的表演所以都每个人都不允许自己有一丁点的小错误。在准备表演的过程当中,这次是她第一次与流行乐团配合并外出表演。很多时候不习惯,尤其是歌曲起调的问题,但是她表示,最后练习多了问题便自然而然地解决了。卢品淳同学觉得个人整体表演还算满意。由于这是第一次演唱日本歌曲,在日语发音方面可能还不能像日本人那么流利,但她相信只要多演唱日本歌曲,这些问题就会有效得到改善。最后,她想感谢校方以及韩中流行乐团地顾问老师和教练提供那么好的训练及培训,并且提供那么难得的表演平台给队员们,她相信自己有了这次表贵的经验过后,自己必定会变得越来越好。
同样是来自流行乐团的胡佳涵同学表示自己当时十分紧张。因为现场太多人的原因,她深怕表演的时候会出差错,但更多的则是兴奋,毕竟自己是第一次在那么盛大的庆典中表演。此外,她自行演唱的日本歌曲《Summertime》是一首欢快的歌曲,这首歌除了在她的范围之内也是一首可以带动全场观众来个大合唱的歌曲,因此上台演唱到一半的时候反而感到自在了。两个星期的时间来筹备这次的表演,胡同学坦言之前的确有担心过时间不够以及参演服装的问题。而且考试也刚好在那段时间,因此她害怕自己会太过专注于某件事情而让两者都得到不好的结果,压力很大,服装问题则是害怕无法在短时间内寻找适合的服装而纠结过。但是过了一段时间后,经过老师和队员们不断的努力以及非常默契的配合,让事情简单了许多。胡佳涵同学感慨,若自己在表演的时候没有那么紧张的话,可以让成果变得更好。但是整体的表演还算满意。
来自J3E1的林睿娴同学表示,这次的经历十分有趣,看见同班同学前来支持并大声呼喊她的名字令她十分感动。这次的表演机会是学会的顾问老师争取的,因此林同学认为她无论如何都要表现得好,为校争光也为自己感到骄傲和光荣。即便是犯了错误也要从容地面对和解决。另她印象最深刻的是在彩排之前发生的突发情况——扩音器的导线出了问题,让她和队员们都乱了阵脚。但值得庆幸的是,她们在表演前的最后一秒都成功解决了问题,让表演顺利继续。通过这次一系列的筹备到上台表演,她认为团体合作无论什么时候都非常重要,时时刻刻与队友建立信任感,最重要的则是需要相信自己。通过这次表演,她收获最大的是更多的表演经验以及如何在表演的前一秒临危不乱地及时解决问题,林 同学认为这是她在这个年龄段需要去学习的。
本校流行乐团的顾问老师庄华山在采访中表示,让流行乐团的学生参加这次日本盆舞节的目的是为了让他们建立自信以及提高自我的表达能力。庄老师还表示,这次的表演除了能让他们提取经验之外,遇到问题时提高他们的变通能力,同时也能让他们发挥即兴创作的能力,让他们变得更加成熟。他感慨道,他觉得这次同学们都表现得很好,时间以及成员配合问题都是需要长时间去考虑以及消磨的,在这一方面同学们都完成得非常好。更值得祝贺的是,位于槟城的日本领事馆工作人员表示学生们都表现得很好,但仍然还是有进步的空间。

科技创新思维从中学开始培养

4

由马来西亚中华总商会(简称:中总)所举办的“2021年全国中学生科技创新比赛”,有一所中学表现特出,分别包揽了冠亚军,这所学校就是韩江中学。最让人惊喜的,是赢得冠军的团队,三位学生皆为初一生,实实在在验证了科技创新思维能力是不分年龄的。

 

冠亚军参赛者分别是该校机械学会和创发学会的学生。机械学会学习的内容主要是如何使用乐高建出可和程序配合操控的机器、学习使用程序操控机器完成有时间限制的任务、学习如何做项目研究和表达出自己的创思。而创发学会学习的知识同样广泛,内容包括编码与编程、3D建模打印、影片制作方面的多媒体技能、互联网和电子学技能、微型计算机、手机应用程序等。江美利校长认为,当学生具备了基础的科技能力和知识,即能不断地启发他们的创新思维,在研发产品的过程中,常年累计的科技知识就能够被运用了,因此,该校学生常年都会制作出一些科技产品,学校也会将这些产品展出,例如在2019年百年校庆之际,举办了一场大型的全国科技展,为的是打造平台让学生在学习的过程中燃起更多兴趣,同时也给予学生交流互动的机会。

 

江美利透露,学生在进行一些科技产品发明时,都是自己提出想要做的内容,这不同于一般传统科目,由老师主导学习内容。学生所设计的题材构思很多来自生活所需,目的是让我们的生活过得更方便舒适,江美利强调,除了创新也很讲求沟通能力和团队能力,这也是机械学会与创发学会必须学习的软技能,不受传统学习被规定的范围所约束,学生有很多自由发挥的空间。

 

创新思维影响升学的选择
学生在校园生活中的学习若能被启发潜在的创新思维,那这些孩子的学习会有别于传统的学习模式,不会只局限在课本的知识,他们会跳出课本的框架,也会有很多不同的点子和方法来解决学习上所面对的问题。一旦具有创新的思维,必然也会连带影响他们升学和职涯方面的选择,江美利亦观察到这类型的学生在申请大学时,必会选择一些能够带给他们创新思维的科系,例如现在很多学生会选择大数据相关的科系,而不是传统的数学系,他们会作出比较,也有一些学生会选择AI的科系或新媒体之类的创新科系,所以在大学四年的知识也是建立于创新思维之上。中学扎好基础、大学迈向专业化,新兴的科系选择也更适合工业4.0科技创新环境的发展,未来出路比传统科系来得广阔。

 

对江美利而言,拥有创新思维的人才型学生,他们的学习没有所谓按部就班,更没有一道墙可以围住他们成长,这同时也是社会所需要的人才。她分析,近三年来冠病疫情造成人们的生活,从学习到工作都走向线上,就连买卖也要透过线上的模式进行,近几年学校有鼓励商科学生进修电子商务,但这一年来又冒出过境电商,即线上买卖结合国际贸易,这类混合式的国贸课程非常适合有创新思维的学生,这类型的人才就能够符合市场需求。

 

课程转型为学生储备科技创新能力
韩江中学从2017年开始将创新科技教育(STEAM)附加在正课与联课活动中,从初一到高三的学生都必须学习创新科技教育的课程,而这也成为该校办学特色,无形中培养了很多创新科技的学生,近几年在各种国际或区域性的比赛都有不俗的成绩,例如去年印尼科学学会主办的“世界创新科学展”,该校学生也脱颖而出摘下金奖。

 

倘若要在课程上转型,必须投入大量的资源,该校有一群老师经过培训专门教导创新科技教育,除了师资,同时得提升校内各种设备,因传统的课室并不适合此类教学,要有规模的科技创新室,里面备有各种器材帮助学生学以致用,学习了基本的理论之后,学生就需要工具动手把产品做出来。江美利说,当师资、设备、场地皆俱全,就有条件进行专业的教学,为学生储备科技创新的能力,学校有责任指导孩子能力的培养,当掌握了这些基本的科技创新知识,学生在走入社会之后,就会拥有比一般人来得强的竞争力。

 

程凯乐认为,会参加比赛的学生一般都是具备创新思维的,老师扮演的角色非常明确,是在于提供学生真确的方向,如果学生毫无方向地耗费太多时间在摸索,他们会觉得很疲累,导致兴趣减退而放弃。然后他们也会从比赛学习到,人生本来就是要不断寻找一把对的钥匙,只要找对钥匙,就能快速有效地把事情完成,而这些大方向都是需要老师为学生作出指引的。同时,他也发现,学生不止是单纯产品发明而已,还必须锻炼演讲技巧为自己的产品说明,这也是校长所提沟通、团队合作之外另一种软实力的培养。

 

在江美利看来,“兴趣”无疑是最好的老师,最重要的一环应先让学生建立起兴趣,才进一步谈如何发明科技产品,看到学生们的成长与成就,是办校者最大的推动力,她希望未来国家能够越来越重视创新科技的人才,而教育的共同目标,就是让学生可以贡献一份力量,协助国家发展。

江校长表示本校今天靓丽的成绩都是先贤和董家教的努力,在他们的带领下,让本校能够更上一层楼。江校长指出为了提供学生完善的科技教育,本校在2017年开始设立创新科技室及电子图书馆,这也就是今年校庆的主题《素质教育·培养创新科技人才》。她透露本校也在今天特别举办创新科技展,由本校创发学会及机械学会举办,也欢迎嘉宾们参观学生们的作品,给予他们鼓励与认可。她提及本校的学生也在科技领域上获得杰出的成就,本校的辩论队也在各类的比赛中获得佳绩。她指出本校学生不仅在联课活动拥有杰出的表现,在学业成绩表现也非常亮眼。江校长认为学生是国家未来的栋梁,因此,本校牢记林连登翁“树人万万年”的宏愿,为社会培养更多人才。最后,她代表本校全体师生祝贺希望各位的学业和事业蒸蒸日上,再创辉煌及祝全体嘉宾身体健康,平安吉祥。
接着,本校播放了影片给予嘉宾们观赏,让嘉宾们更了解师生们在恢复实体课后的活动,以及同学们在今年取得的佳绩。稍后,本校进行移交模拟支票,由YB林冠英、YB雷尔、YB林秀琴、YB黄顺祥、YB林慧英交给本校校长江美利硕士。感谢他们的支持,提供本校更好的环境。其次,本校的姐妹校泰国泰南华文民校联谊会主席兼泰国德教树强学校董事长陈礼琛与韩江签署谅解备忘录,希望未来会有更多交流。
韩江三校董事长黄赐兴先生表示本校在疫情期间,已有两年没有到礼堂进行实体的校庆,而今年很庆幸的可以回到礼堂为林连登翁致敬。他坦言,今年到礼堂进行公祭仪式时,他的心情是非常承重的。他指出同学们应该铭记林连登翁为华社所贡献的一切,无论是韩江传媒学院还是当时的潮汕人士都是他一手来创办的。黄先生说到当时的林连登翁把他所有的爱以及付出都奉献在了华社,正是因为如此才有了今天辉煌般的华社。他表示要是没有当初林连登翁的付出,同学们也无法在本校上学,因此同学们必须要有一个扶持人的心灵。黄先生也非常感谢我校的校长以及老师们,因为有了他们培养我校的学生才能荣获一个又一个的奖项,为我校争光。在此,黄赐兴先生也透露我校校长江美利硕士荣获全国卓越教师奖,他说道校长今天的成就也少不了董事们、本校的老师以及校长的爱人的支持。他希望在校长的领导下能把本校管理得优异之外,也希望让董事团队更加强大,能够成为学校的后盾。最后他希望董事团队承载着当年林连登翁的心愿,让华文教育在社会上发扬光大。
本校的表演团体以及同学们也为这次的校庆做了充分的准备其中包括了弦乐团带来的《Star Wars》以及《Flower Duet》;接着本校的6名师生一同带来的《林连登颂》以感谢林连登翁在生前为本校所付出的一切;J21班的卢品淳同学带来的原创歌曲《炙热》,愿本校像火焰一样,再现辉煌;华乐团演奏《庆典序曲》;合唱团则为这次的校庆表演了《献给老师的歌》和《Rasa Nusantara》;二十四节令鼓团体用象征华文传统文化的鼓声演奏了《丰庆》;扯铃学会也表演了《如果可以,从铃(零)开始》,为校庆带来了精彩的表演。本校中华传统舞蹈团则用着美丽的舞姿表演了《南下》,作为今年本校校庆典礼的最后表演节目。
艾德教树强学校董事长陈礼琛先生移交纪念品。为了恭祝韩江中学的72周年校庆,这次的校庆还安排了切蛋糕仪式,以纪念林连登翁在当年的今天建校,让韩江有了今天辉煌的成就。最后来到了校庆的尾声,由本校校长带领在场的嘉宾们一同参观本校的创新科技展。于早上11时,本校2022年度的校庆日圆满结束。
本校家教协会主席吴松文博士提起本次校庆的主题《素质教育·培育创新科技人才》很符合本校的形象。这是因为本校一直以来都在推广素质教育,他强调本校在这方面无论是在IGCSE还是UEC都有着非常优异的成绩。他表示中学只有5至6年的时段,他希望在这几年里,韩中生可以获取更多的知识,也给同学们机会看看科技是否是自己的兴趣。他说道,今年的校庆与以往两年的校庆并不相同,因为在以往两年本校都是以线上的方式进行,今年到了线下这可以让很多活动或节目有着互动的存在。他也较喜欢以线下的方式进行校庆,无论是气氛方面还是互动方面都让各位来宾们感到很庆幸可以到礼堂进行校庆。他赞赏到在校庆表演的各个表演团体都扣人心弦,当然他也表扬了学生们都在为校庆尽自己的一份力。最后他还指出同学们在中学的阶段不要害怕各种困难的来临,一定要勇于面对它,克服它,也不要害怕失败,正所谓“失败乃成功之母”,失败了就从中提取经验。他提出到了在中学有了失败以后的经验,到了社会就可以接受自己的不足。
来自校友会的总务骆美珊女士表示她是于1989年毕业的校友,并且不是第一次参加校庆。她指出线上和线下的氛围不一样,因为她认为线上是通过荧幕观看,不能亲自到校来参与,但在线下的校庆可以跟很多人互动和交流,还可以欣赏学生们的表演,并且现场充满欢乐的气氛。她看到了这几年韩江中学的进步她也替本校感到很高兴与骄傲,因为以前的年代没有很好的设备及很少学生就读。然而,随着时代慢慢的变化,本校也有了2000多位学生,这是一件很不容易的事情。她表示今年的校庆让她回忆起以前每一年的校庆,思念与感谢创校人林连登翁的贡献。她认为今年校庆的主题很符合现代的社会,因为我们也需要跟着时代的步伐以及科技的发展,培养学生掌握科技创新的能力。她祝贺本校未来做得更好,让更多的人就读韩江中学。她指出本校二十四节令鼓的表演是令她最为震撼的。通过他们的表演,看得出学生们为了这次校庆表演所付出的努力和汗水而令她感动不已。
来自弦乐团的王晨希同学表示这是她在学校的第一次表演,在今年的一月份他们就开始为这次的校庆做准备。准备的过程中也十分艰辛,无论是团队合作还是节拍上都需要很大的调整,幸庆的是在表演的过程中非常顺利。在此,她十分感谢指挥老师以及他的同学们给予她的支持与帮助。最后她对自己的演奏感到十分满意,不管是节拍上还是声量上都能让观众有更好的欣赏效果。
