新竹縣卡爾、約翰實驗教育機構以雙語及科技導向教學為主軸,除了重視創新的學術表現,亦致力於培養人文素養與世界關懷,在校學生期末都將參與志工服務,今年,卡爾師生走進台灣偏鄉學校,交流彼此的校園特質及文化特色。另外,財團法人卡爾教育基金會關懷偏鄉教育,捐贈保暖睡袋四十個至原住民部落自主成立的課輔教室,為孩童們在寒冬中注入一股暖流。
 


卡爾師生這學期前往尖石鄉的姐妹校,第一天於嘉興國小舉辦藝文交流,在語言、音樂及藝術方面,分享英語學習過程,暢談展演經驗,並一同共享部落特色飲食。隔日前往素有奧運射箭國手搖籃的新樂國小,進行泰雅族文化學術研討,學習彈奏部落傳統樂器,並嘗試射箭運動。卡爾同學表示:「兩天一夜的志工服務,讓我的學習跨出課本內的知識,這些經驗讓我知道如何關心社會,把所學所知傳到偏鄉地區。」
 
約翰實驗教育為國小部學生,小一起即開始參與每學期的志工服務,從小培養關懷社會及幫助他人,除此之外也讓學生懂得知福惜福。校內老師安排學生至新竹南寮環保站,了解綠色能源及垃圾的回收與再利用。另外也參訪了喜憨兒基金會,看見真實翻轉人生的勇士們,讓孩子多了份體悟。卡爾教育基金會關懷台灣偏鄉教育,在綠色環保、生態維護及食農教育上不遺餘力,希望孩子擁有好的品格及正確的價值觀,未來能為社會盡一分心力。

Karl and Johan Experimental Education Institutes provide bilingual learning environment and tech-focused classes for their elementary and secondary school students. In addition to offering innovative academic classes, the schools encourage students to participate in volunteer activities in order to help people in need. At the end of each semester students participate in various volunteer activities. This year, teachers and students at Karl visited a rural school to allow students at both schools to exchange their differences and culture. Furthermore, Karl Education Foundation donated 40 sleeping bags to a distant school located in an aboriginal village in Taiwan this winter.

At the end of this semester Karl students visited their sister school in Jianshih Township in Hsinchu City. Students of both school performed what they learned in the areas of art, language, music, and culture. They discussed their experiences in learning English and performing arts, then enjoyed a wonderful aboriginal meal in the evening. On the next day they visited Hsinle Elementary School, which is known for fostering Olympic athletes in archery. Karl students discussed their experience in academic classes, played traditional aboriginal music instruments, and tried-out archery. “The two-day volunteer activity allowed me to gain knowledge not found in books, to give back to the society, and to share what I have learned with new friends in rural areas,” said one student.
 
Elementary students at Johan school, on the other hand, also have the chance to participate in volunteer activities at the end of each semester so that they understand the value in helping others at a young age. This time they went to a recycling station at Nanliao Township to see the recycling operations and how it contributes to creating green-energy. Then they visited the Children Are Us Foundation, whose core goals are the care and education of persons with intellectual disabilities.
 
Karl Education Foundation aims to support distant schools in Taiwan, and to foster environmental protection and sustainability in the hope that student will have the right values, and be willing to give back to the society for the years to come.
