校長的話(十三)
「疫」境同行

        今年的開學禮十分特別,我們首次利用網上形式進行,雖然未能一如以往般在學校門前歡迎大家,但相信同學們在家中也期待與各位老師在網上見面。記起每年開學時候,我通常都會問老師和同學:「你們暑假做了什麼?去過什麼地方玩?」但今年沒有,因為相信大家與我一樣,今年都過了一個十分疲倦和充滿憂慮的暑假,對嗎?本港在年初受 2019 冠狀病毒病疫情影響,全港學校一直未能正常上課。在停課期間,同學們透過不同模式在家學習,實踐「停課不停學」,不少同學和家長需要面對各種前所未見的挑戰,在種種困難下一定承受着很大的壓力。我想借此機會再一次跟大家分享以下的故事:

        「有一個人,他於夢境中見到前面餐桌上放了很多美味的食物,但自己及身邊的人卻不能進食,為何呢?原來他們每一個人都被巫師施了法術,雙手不能屈曲,結果大家大眼瞪小眼,光看着卻無法把食物放進嘴裏,心裏特別難受,心想:快餓死了!此時卻傳來樓上陣陣笑聲,這個人往樓上察看,發現那裏的人雙手同樣都不能屈曲,可餐桌上的食物卻已差不多吃完,而每個人都笑容滿面,為什麼呢?   

         原來這裏每個人都互相幫助,雖然自己的雙手不能屈曲,就把夾到的食物送到別人的嘴裏,結果每個人都可以吃到不同的美食。」

        這個故事帶出一個重要的訊息:當我們置身同一困難的境地,只要大家同心合作、互相照應,結果往往可以令地獄變為天堂。

        學校非常欣賞各位同學在過去的日子能以自律和積極的態度應對各種轉變,加上家長和老師的通力合作,同學們大都能在家學習。在此衷心感謝各位對學校的全力支持,相信各位會像上述分享的故事般,可以在困難中找到幸福。

         現在學校生活正逐步恢復正常,但願疫情盡快消退,同學可如常返回校園,愉快學習,健康成長,好好享受在葉紀南的校園生活。抗疫期間大家必須加倍注意環境及個人衛生清潔。

在此謹祝大家身心康泰,生活愉快。

Fight the Epidemic Together

This year’s school opening ceremony is very special as it is our first time to launch it online. Instead of greeting you all at the front gate as before, I am sure that students are enthusiastic about meeting every teacher online. I also recall that on the previous school open days, I often asked students and teachers, ‘What do you do during summer holidays? Where do you tour around?’ But, like all of you, I don’t do so this year. A tiring summer holiday full of anxiety has just come to an end, hasn’t it? Due to the COVID-19 pandemic at the beginning of this year, classes have been suspended among all the schools in Hong Kong. During the class suspension period, students learned at home via various modes, fulfilling the spirit of ‘suspending classes without suspending learning’. Some students and parents had to face different kinds of unprecedented challenges, shouldering great pressure. I would like to make use of this opportunity to share with you the following story:

 ‘There was a person finding a lot of delicacies on the dining table in front of him in his dream, but he himself and the people on his sides couldn’t eat anything. What’s the reason? This was because a witch had cast a spell on each of them so that they couldn’t bend their both hands. As a result, all of them felt especially upset because they couldn’t put the food inside their mouths with open eyes, thinking of dying of hunger soon! At that moment, there came gusts of laughter upstairs. That man went upstairs searching and discovered that the people there had almost finished all the food on the dining table with smiling faces even though they couldn’t bend their both hands, either. Why? In fact, the people there helped each other. Though they themselves couldn’t bend their both hands, they picked up the food and put it into the mouths of others. Thus, each of them could eat different kinds of delicacies.’

This story carries an important message: situated in the difficult situation together, only when we look after each other can we turn the hell into a heaven.

We appreciate the self-discipline and positive attitude of every student towards all changes. With joint efforts from parents and teachers, most students can study at home. I am grateful for all to your wholehearted support. May you find happiness through difficulties as in the aforementioned story.

As the school life has resumed gradually, may the pandemic vanish and students come back to school, studying happily and growing healthily so as to enjoy the campus life in YKN. We need to pay extra attention to personal and environmental hygiene during the anti-epidemic period.

I wish you good life and happiness.
