西外外方校长和不少外教老师,在中国疫情最严重的时候,都没有离开学校,返回那时还没暴发疫情的英美加澳等国。而且,寒假回去的老师,得知学校要准备开学,绝大多数也早早地克服直飞航班大幅减少,绕着道儿,转机好几次的困难,花几个不眠之夜,飞回上海。问他们为什么要这么做,他们的回答简单而又直接: 我们的学生都在上海,他们不能没有老师!再大困难,也不能让孩子们失望。

 

上周六下午,西外學校的四位外教,爲了支持中國的抗疫之戰,主動去獻血站去獻血。誰說這個世界因疫情而倒退到了“閉關鎖國”、“自掃門前雪”的狹隘的利己時代?全人類同呼吸、共命運的意識精神仍在,無論是這些天那些告別家人,馳援武漢和各國的中國醫護人員,還是西外學校志願獻血的外教老師,他們用行動告訴我們,人類是一個不分地域、血緣、種族、膚色、國別的真正命運共同體!

In international education, we often talk about the importance of character and cultivating students to be “global citizens”. We aim to teach students to not only be grounded in their own culture and heritage, but also to understand the wider world, to be respectful of other cultures and beliefs, and to realize that we are all part of a common humanity. 

在國際教育中,我们经常会谈到对学生进行人格塑造以及把他们培养为“全球公民”的重要性。我们的目标是教育学生不仅要扎根于自己的文化和遗产,还要了解更广阔的世界,尊重异族文化和信仰,并认识到我们都是人类命运共同体的成员。

 

Global crises like the COVID-19 pandemic put these ideals and values to the test. Viruses recognize no borders. They do not discriminate between races, cultures, or religions. They bring pain and suffering to all people regardless of nationality. They are a global problem, and they can only be dealt with through the collective efforts of all people around the world. No country can defeat this challenge alone; no country can avoid the consequences of the pandemic by simply walling itself off from the world. When crises like this arise, we as international educators have a vital role to play. We must lead by example, and show our students through our actions what global citizenship is really all about.

 

像COVID-19这样的全球性危机恰恰是对这些理念和价值观的考验。病毒不分国界,不分文化,不分宗教。他们给全世界的人类同胞带来痛苦。它们是一个全球性问题,也只有通过全世界人类同胞的共同努力才能解决。没有一个国家能够独自战胜这一挑战,也没有一个国家能够仅仅通过与世界隔绝而避免这一流行病的后果。当这样的危机出现时,我们作为國際教育工作者可以发挥至关重要的作用。我们必须以身作则,通过我们的行动向学生展示全球公民的真正意义。

 

 

On Saturday, April 11th, 2020, a group of foreign teachers from Xiwai International High School took part in the Delta Health blood drive at the Shanghai Blood Donation Centre in Changning. Donating blood is especially crucial at this time as Shanghai, like many other places, faces a serious blood shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the country’s lockdown measures, all blood donation drives during the past few months had to be cancelled, and as blood can only be stored for a maximum of 3 months, this has led to a serious shortage. We applaud these teachers’ initiative and sense of global community at this trying time!

2020年4月11日,星期六,一群來自西外國際高中的外籍教師在長甯區的愛心獻血中心參加了獻血活動。在這個緊急關頭,獻血尤其重要。由于COVID-19的廣泛傳播,上海和其他許多地方一樣都面臨嚴重的血液短缺。由于國家采取了封鎖措施,過去幾個月的所有獻血活動都不得不取消,而且由于血液最多只能儲存3個月,這導致了嚴重的供不應求。在這個艱難的時刻,我們爲這些教師的主動性和國際社會意識喝彩!

"This was my second time participating in a blood drive sponsored by the Shanghai Blood Clinic, and I feel both honoured and privileged that I have been welcomed with open arms. As a frequent blood donor in the United States (almost 5 gallons), the opportunity to help give back to the community which has taken me in is unparalleled. I feel fortunate to be able to help the country that I now call home."

These teachers have set an outstanding example of global citizenship and social responsibility in a time of great trial. They join many other Xiwai students, parents, and teachers who have stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic and supported the fight against the virus in countless ways, from donating masks and medical equipment to serving as volunteer doctors and nurses on the front lines. Their actions are a moving testament to our shared humanity and the power of the collective human spirit to overcome all hardships. To our Xiwai volunteers, and to all those who are doing their part in this struggle: We salute you!

在這樣一個巨大的考驗時期,這些教師身上的全球公民和社會責任意識爲我們樹立起了傑出的榜樣。他們與許多其他的西外學生、家長和教師一起,在新型冠狀病毒疫情期間挺身而出,以各種方式支持抗擊病毒。從捐贈口罩和醫療設備到擔任前線的志願醫生和護士。他們的行爲深刻地反映了我們人性中最本質的東西,以及人類集體精神克服一切困難的偉大力量。向我們的西外志願者,向所有在這場鬥爭中盡自己一份力量的人致敬:我們向你們致敬!
