PTU Blasts the Bureau for Creating White Terror

The Education Bureau said earlier that it was considering penalties for teachers who have been complained against and teachers who have been arrested over the recent protests. The penalties could include warnings, reprimands, or even deregistration. It added that teachers who were involved in serious crimes should be immediately suspended and all cases would be vigorously processed.

寶寶「去旅行」秘笈

八千里路 ■ 原人

2019年,對香港人是難忘一年。今年改變了城市的命運,也改造了筆者的一生。我的兒子於4月出生,嬰兒出現,旅行的意義也不同,人生難料,像陳綺貞的歌詞般:「說不出,離開的原因,你累計了許多飛行」,不過飛行的意義和自由度也不大相同了。

小孩出生,是另一個出走的理由。近年,日本流行「旅育」的概念,著名旅遊記者村田和子提出「以學齡前兒童到小學生為對像,進行旅遊體驗(走出家)的課程」(詳見她著作《帶著孩子去旅行》),讓小孩從旅行學習書本以外的知識。上年,我的孩子只有七個月大,與他日本旅遊,苦樂參半,但也是不錯的教育經驗。 …… 閱讀全文

從「專心致志」談起

風檐展書 ■ 香港歷史文化研究會理事 吳煒崗

弈秋,通國之善弈者也。使弈秋誨二人弈,其一人專心致志,惟弈秋之為聽。一人雖聽之,一心以為有鴻鵠將至,思援弓繳而射之,雖與之俱學,弗若之矣。為是其智弗若與?曰:「非然也。」

專心致志,指用心專一,聚精會神,把心思全放在一件事上。孟子指出,下棋雖然只是一種小技藝,但若不能專心致志地學習,也是學不會的。 …… 閱讀全文
