校長的話(十二)
齊心抗疫、【疫】境自強
      抗疫期間,師生們都聽從政府指示盡量留於家中,齊心抗疫。各位同學雖然未能如平日般在課室裏學習,但自3月開始我校便採用實時教學及網上自學等方式,讓同學在停課期間仍能繼續學習。這類遙距學習的模式,極需要同學自律地每天準時上課及自學。起初我對此尚存懷疑,但經過這個多月來的觀察,我發覺我的擔憂是多餘的,因為葉紀南的老師團隊,既專業亦敬業,而且關愛學生,於停課期間每天按時進行實時教學;有老師身體不適仍堅持上課,以確保學生能維持有規律學習的習慣;也有老師透過網絡教授中六學生應試技巧及解答疑問至深夜;遇有同學缺席課堂,老師
們會立即跟進,了解同學未能出席的原因及關心他們在抗疫期間的身心健康。相信同學們正因為感受到老師的付出與關愛,所以課堂的出席率平均達到九成以上。在此艱難時期,我十分感謝各位師生的努力,雖然要面對不少挑戰,但大家仍堅守崗位,「疫」境自強,停課不停學,這是我們「葉紀南」的驕傲。
 

       雖然本港冠狀病毒的疫情已有所緩和,距離復課日期不遠,但我們絕不可鬆懈,學校亦會嚴陣以待,日前校方已外聘專業消毒公司,為學校進行徹底的消毒。專業消毒公司使用本港大學發明的新型智能殺菌塗層(MAP-1),新塗層原理是在物體表面形成殺菌膜,接觸到微生物的包膜和生物分子時會將之破壞。有效殺滅99.9%,如麻疹、腮腺炎、風疹等高傳染性細菌和病毒,以及抗藥性較冠狀病毒更高的貓杯狀病毒,有效防禦引發當前疫情的新型冠狀病毒,有效期長達六個月,讓師生們回校時多一分保護及多一份安心。期望大家努力做好個人衛生,復課後見到各位健健康康返回「葉紀南」的大家庭,一起再次享受愉快的校園生活。

   

    順祝各位家長、師生及校友們佛力加庇,身心康泰,生活愉快。

Let's fight against pandemic and adversity together!

     'When the going gets tough, the tough get going!'

     Owing to COVID-19, all students and teachers need to stay home, and we are no exception. Though our students cannot go to school as usual, they have kept learning via real-time online classes and self-studying as adopted by our school since March. This distance learning mode requires self-discipline and punctuality. Initially, I am doubtful about it, but as time goes by, I find that I have unnecessary worries. In fact, YKN teachers are professional and caring – they insist conducting real-time online classes for students during class suspension even though some teachers feel ill because they try their best to help students sustain their good learning habits.

     What is more, our teachers teach S6 students exam skills and answer their questions till mid-night; they also follow up on their attendance right away and care about their health conditions during class suspension. I do believe that the overall 90% attendance is due to our teachers' efforts and care.

  At this critical moment, I am grateful to all students and teachers for their endeavours. As the old saying goes, 'when the going gets tough, the tough get going!' – despite facing challenges, we persist in learning and teaching during class suspension and fight against adversity.
This is our pride as YKN.

         Though the pandemic is getting less serious and classes will be resumed later, we stay alert and hire a service provider specialized in disinfecting at our campus. This company adopts Multilevel Antimicrobial Polymer (MAP-1) coating invented by a local university and it is effective in killing viruses, bacteria, and even hard-to-kill spores. MAP-1 can inactivate up to 99.9 per cent of highly-infectious viruses such as measles, mumps and rubella, and 99.99 per cent of the surrogate feline calicivirus (FCV) –  a gold standard for disinfection efficiency and is more resistant than coronaviruses such as the one responsible for COVID-19 epidemic. The MAP-1 coating is highly versatile with an effective period of up to 6 months so that our students and teachers can feel safer and better at school. It is also hoped to see you all practise good personal hygiene, come back for YKN family union healthily and enjoy a happy school life again after class resumption.

      

     May I wish all students, parents and alumni good health and happiness with Buddha’s blessings.
