The students who participated in this evaluation confirmed that this was indeed such a camp: “I spent a happy and full summer camp here. Going horse -riding, playing football and traveling to different destinations in the world of knowledge. This all warmed my heart. The summer camp was really an unforgettable experience for me.”This summer camp was for all new students of our school.
“What really impressed us is the varied teaching methods employed by the teachers; combining teaching with pleasure". Student Julin said that in addition to experiencing the hardship, and happiness, of living in a school dormitory for the first time, in these two weeks she also experienced other interesting activities. “For example, I was impressed by the relaxed atmosphere in teacher Jenny's spelling class, Luna's Drama class and Hedy's History class. I think the difference between this school and other schools lies in its teaching style. It does not have the stereotyped teaching method used by other schools, but gives us opportunities to use free imagination. All the questions needed to be discussed and explored with my classmates, which has also helped me and my classmates to become more familiar with each other. What surprised me most was that we went on a field trip once a week. We went to the coast to ride horses, play golf, and visit the windmill museum. I think the main reason I like this school is probably that every day is filled with rich and varied learning opportunities.”
In addition to the harvest of knowledge which the students gleaned, they also gained good friendships. During a football match, one student fell, and many students immediately rushed to help him. When drawing up tables of information in the history class, every group member cooperated and coordinated with each other, causing them to elaborate: "There is no perfect individual, only a perfect group".
Even in the dormitory, students were comforted by the dormitory teachers. Many students, like Julin, experienced dormitory life for the first time. At first, some of these students were unhappy and missed their parents very much. But our dormitory teachers stepped in and encouraged their friends to comfort them, chat together and generally bond, until at last the students adapted to their new environment and become strong and independent.
When the teachers heard the students’ heartfelt voice of thanks, they were moved. One teacher sighed, "Hearing the students' hearts is sweeter than drinking honey. The recognition of our teaching methods and care for the students is the highest praise to all our teachers who love children and education. Children, we also thank you. Let’s maintain this momentum in the new semester! "
