新加坡户外学习与探险学习:制定准则 提升数千名指导员素质

新加坡户外学习与探险学习:制定准则 提升数千名指导员素质 PUBLISHED MAY 13TH, 2016 http://www.channel8news.sg/news8/latestnews/20160513-sg-outdoor/2783110.html?cid=ch8news-fb#.V0o0lrUlo1c.link 随着教育部大力推广户外教育,以加强学生的生活技能,新加坡户外学习与探险学习教育协会,为私人户外活动业者制定一套准则,以提升业内3000多名指导员的素质。 让学生齐心合力,抬起同学穿越呼啦圈,培养他们的毅力和信心。这些活动向来由私人户外活动业者提供,但随着教育部增建外展训练中心,并培训自己的全职户外教育工作者,私人业者认为有必要提升素质与水平。新加坡户外学习与探险学习教育协会,制定一套准则,为指导员技能和学生安全定下标准。 户外学习与探险教育协会发言人蔡柔文说:“最重要的还是参加者的安全。我们要借着这个新的标准来建立起家长对我们的信心,能够提倡让他们的孩子参与户外与探险活动。” 目前市场上有约100间私人户外活动业者。协会表示,各家公司有各自标准,新准则统一行内做法。 私人户外活动业者林子轩表示:“例如指导人员对学生的比例,现在教育部的学校都用1对20,但是有些活动例如在课室举办游戏,不一定需要1对20,所以有了这个准则,教育部学校跟我们就可以彼此了解,对方所需要的标准、资源和人力。” 协会说自去年有师生在沙巴京那巴鲁山遇难后,许多学校不再举办出国探险活动,这类生意大跌超过50%。协会相信新准则能带动更多学校重办出国活动。 协会表示,目标是在今年9月完成拟定初步的准则,之后协会会在网上征询公众的意见,长达两个月,并在今年年底之前把准则提交给教育部。 – CH8/JS

②爱新基金 “快乐青年”引导青春对抗抑郁

②爱新基金 “快乐青年”引导青春对抗抑郁

②爱新基金 “快乐青年”引导青春对抗抑郁 2016年4月15日 星期五 五年前患上抑郁症,一度想要轻生,好在朋友及时的短信将他从自杀边缘拉回。这段经历促林子轩发起全新的计划,为患有抑郁症的青少年提供辅导。 品格与领导学院总裁林子轩(30岁)受访时透露,他虽是一名激励讲师,但2011年陷入低潮时也难以振作。当时,公司业绩不佳,他又被诊断患上心脏疾病,还因贪污指控遭贪污调查局调查。一连串的打击令他感到绝望,差一点跳楼,结束生命。 但就在那一刻,一名朋友突然发短信约他喝咖啡。林子轩说:“我拒绝了邀约,并告诉他我对生活感到绝望。朋友于是鼓励和关怀我,叫我不要放弃,让我意识到不能这样结束生命。” 事态后来好转,林子轩动手术后健康改善,贪污指控也被撤销。 走出阴影后,林子轩于三年前发起“快乐青年”(HappYouth)计划,教导青少年如何在面临压力或生活不如意时调节心情,及时寻求援助。计划也教青少年如何察觉抑郁症状,关心和帮助身边的朋友。林子轩说:“他们在帮助朋友时,也在不断提醒自己要充实地生活,珍惜现在拥有的东西。” 这项计划的职员和义工至今已接触两万多名青少年,计划去年还获新加坡50周年庆基金资助扩展。 林子轩计划等政府推出“爱新基金”后提出申请。“有了基金的资助,我们将可完善内容,进一步扩大规模。青少年未来会遇到许多艰巨挑战,只有提高心理素质才能更好地去应对。” 来源:联合早报 Click here to view full article.
