2024 中国行团队春假访问奉化武岭中学

2024 SEP 中国行团队利用春假走访奉化武岭中学,圆满完成一周的文化交流助学活动,师生平安返航,满载而归!武岭中学校领导高度重视,热烈欢迎本校师生的到访,安排了丰富多彩,形式多样的项目。团队师生通过风俗人情考察,传统文化体验,特色课程学习,并走进课堂,和同龄学生互动,中英文演讲,英语角交流,在体育馆里进行球类切蹉,在全校性的”三独” 比赛上倾情出演,短短的一周时间,结下了深厚的友谊。我们这次共资助了武岭中学22位同学,12位高一年级学生和10位高二年级学生。

借用带队老师胡凤飞董事长的微信朋友圈来作个小结: 牛顿中文学校支持教育项目第十四次中国行活动,完美收官。
此次中国行团队被学校师生家长们评为最强阵容:最强男女领队组合,董事长校长亲自带队。 最强学生组合,六位男生,六位女生,个个中文流利,才艺双全。 最强团队家长: 从波士顿到香港航班,从上海转机香港回波士顿航班,都有一位家长同行协助领队办理团队出关安检,登机,并协助摄影记录下团队合作互动的精彩瞬间。在星期六宁波的一天参观活动中,又有一位家长同行协助。

SEP Annual Meeting & 2020-2021 Team Recruiting Announcement

8/28/2020 晚上八点半,支教工作小组利用ZOOM Meeting 网络平台,召开了年度会议。

会议对2019-2020 支教工作进行了总结:
虽然2019-2020 支教活动被Covid -19 打断了,支教之旅未能成行,但是上半年的支教活动很有成效。自九月份开始组队后开展了一系列活动:Team Bonding -Charles River boating (9月); Bake Sales (每周日面包及自制点心义卖);参与牛中建校60周年庆典并表演 (10月);支教第七届网球锦标赛 (11月); 年度支教才艺表演和筹款 (12月);面试申请支教之行的学生并组队 (2020,1月);协助牛顿中文学校校外春晚庆祝活动并表演和现场义卖募捐 (1月),到其他团体的春晚庆祝现场宣传支教和筹款义卖 (2月初)。筹款总额接近预期的三分之二(包括谭老师的捐助和支教志愿者公司的匹配)。疫情期间,支教活动依然进行,同学们录制了视频,已在牛顿中文学校微信公众号发布。也会发给受访的学校,让他们了解牛顿中文学校和支教团队的活动,其中的支教小花絮在牛顿中文学校学年末的家长大会暨毕业典礼上播放。视频链接如下:https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/Zl0tVYmBDtu5GT3xFrOccQ

会议对2020-2021新学年支教活动进行了热烈的讨论和规划,大家对新形势下的挑战,提出了不少好建议,好办法。支教活动将一如既往,不忘初心,充分利用网络平台,继续支持受访的学校那些在经济条件欠缺,渴望求知的同学,为中美同龄学生提供相互学习和交流的机会。

2020-2021 新学年支教活动小组负责人: 组长 – 高红, 副组长 – 曹景雁, John Lin.

The 2020-2021 will be the 15th year for NCLS SEP. The program runs various fundraising events, such as bake sale, talent show, tennis tournament, culture fair, dance party, etc. to raise funds for underprivileged students in rural areas in China.
In April spring break, a group of NCLS students will go to China and bring the funds to the scholarship recipients. They will visit the recipients’ families, teach English class at the school and participate cultural activities with Chinese students. Covid-19 disrupted 2020 SEP’s activities and prevented the trip to China. However, in these challenging times, help and support could be needed and appreciated more than ever. Students here and in China could continue to learn from each other and support each other in different ways, including but not limited to, online communication and cultural exchanges, and in-person visit situation permitting.
We welcome NCLS students 8th grade and above to join SEP team for 2020-2021.
