The autumn wind is blowing, and temperatures are still comfortable – it is a wonderful time for travel and study. During this golden November, we ushered in our middle school’s Grade 6 “Independent Youth” walking course, where students collectively experienced a rich and wonderful two days of outdoor education. During these two days, the students not only learned knowledge and skills, but more importantly, experienced and felt in practice what it means to be independent and ‘grown up’.
A student who is able to cook farm food would undoubtedly be a most impressive student! Cooking a table of farm food is not an easy task for the sixth-grade students, but our students worked hard to help each other to make it happen. Some students helped to make the cooking fire, some students washed vegetables, some students cut vegetables, and some students fried vegetables. They all obtained a tacit understanding of how to prepare a meal. After a period of arduous work, the students finally completed the cooking of the delicious farm dishes. The smells were wonderful! The homemade food was delicious!
In this walking course, students not only learned knowledge and skills, but also learned self-discipline and self-reliance in the face of challenges. Although the walking course ended, our students will continue to meet the challenges of the future with a spirit of independence and the courage to be not afraid of difficulties. These valuable experiences and gains will inspire students to ‘aim for the top’ in their future lives!
