The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

爱丁堡公爵奖


JOURNEY

数十公里的旅程

没有帮助,没有网络

也许正是因为这样

我们才发现沿路的风景和自己的潜能


未知的旅程就是冒险

去探索,去发现

去勇敢面对惊喜与危险

The unknown journey is exploration. 

We need to explore it, enjoy it, 

whatever it's happiness or danger.

活动日期 Date:June 6th-8th,2018

活动地点 Place:Hangzhou

带队老师 Supervisor/Assessor:Ms. Chelsea, Mr. Antony, Mr. Christopher

 活动简介:

这是一片令人熟悉而又陌生的山林地区,位于杭州西湖西北侧,漫山遍野种植着密密麻麻的西湖龙井茶,每天辛勤的茶农们都忙碌着在山坡上劳作,阳光照耀下的山披本没有路,经常走也就有了路。茶农们对这一带的地形非常熟悉,也经常看到带着沉甸甸背包的游客穿梭在山林中。是的,下个月,来自苏州领科的20多位师生即将来探寻此处。

两天一夜,至少6个小时的白天活动时间,是爱丁堡铜奖的基本要求,一份地图、一个指北针、一套帐篷和炊具将陪伴着他们度过这充满挑战与激发潜能的日日夜夜。

没有不可能,我们一直比自己想象得更好!

The mountain area here seems to be familiar but it is not. It is located in the northwestside of West Lake in Hangzhou. People plant the famous West Lake Longjing tea around the whole area, they are busy working and enjoying life. Under the sunshine there is no road, but in fact naturally occurring hiking trails though severalyears. Also, lots of tourists with heavy backpacks like to hike in themountains.

回顾:爱丁堡公爵奖-银奖户外骑行

喜欢旅行,就上路吧!


2018 Ulink DoE Qualifying Adventure Journey- 

Cycling around Thousand islands Lake

在银奖活动中,经过5个多小时的车程,来自领科教育苏州校区的师生们到达了杭州淳安屏湖村,一个坐落在千岛湖畔的小村庄,这里空气清新,鸟语花香,不过如此惬意的生活环境对学生们来讲将是挑战来临前的一点安慰罢了,等待他们的可能是你没有想象到的!

At the fantasitic time of spring, a group of teachers and students from Ulink came to Hangzhou to begin their Adventure journey.




出发前,AJ Supervisors、Accessors以及Guides从地图介绍、路线选择、组内分工、车辆检查及安全意识等方面再次讲解了注意事项。

一切准备完毕,出发前合影留念,因为这可能是几天以来大家面貌最好看的一张。

里程表归零,蹬上踏板的那一刻,就意味着有趣的故事即将一一上场。“不走寻常路,任凭手中指北针如何转动,也要凭自己的感觉走出一片阳光大道。”


Before starting off, AJ Supervisors, sccessors and guides emphasised the information again. All the students and teachers took photos together and it was the best one during the journey since they were energetic at that time.

Starting off also stood for starting their new story and exploration.



每日骑行60-80公里,一天的行程证明,团队精神就是相互帮助与鼓励、不离不弃,即使在黑夜里整体骑行速度再慢,也要确保每一位队员能安全到达。

能与大自然如此地亲近,这样的机会实在难得。13顶帐篷24位学生依湖而居,生火做饭,枕靠花草,仰望星空。

清晨,露水打湿了背包,鸡鸣打断了睡梦,鸟鸣声、蛙叫声此起彼伏,收拾好行囊,继续前行。


The experience on the first day exactally proved that teamwork was significant. Even if some team members had lower speed than others, they wouldn't abandon anyone and would make sure everyone could arrive on time.

24 students lived in 13 tents near the lake. They ccoked by themselves and enjoy the beautiful stars in the sky.

After sleeping for the whole night, they tidied all the stuff and start their new day's journey.


清晨的迷雾中,黄昏的夕阳下,他们一直在路上,无惧汗水,克服劳累,用他们自己的脚步去证明,这条路,他们来过;这个青春,他们挑战过。


They were always on the way whenever it was morning or evening. They challenged the road, challenged the difficulties and made the best memory of youth.


他们的话 Their words...


Tina Qian

--Pre D


In the course of riding, there was an idea of giving up, especially when you have just turned over a mountain, looking forward to having a downhill to rest for a while, and another mountain appears in front of you. Every time you ride over a mountain, there was always the sound of encouragement  from not only the members of the group but also the teachers. It seems that the mountain is no longer a difficult task to overcome.


The adventure journey teaches us persistent, corporation and communication. The process of riding is like life. There is a slope, a flat road, and a downhill. When you do your best to go up, when you almost want to give up to reach the top, you can see the most beautiful scenery and the downhill as long as you stick to it for just a while.

After a whole day riding, when I lied in the tent, I felt my body was almost like someone who smashed me into pieces and felt painful everywhere. At this period of time, only the moral encouragement can help me get into sleep. It become more serious on the second night and we did even not have a chance to taking a shower.

同学们第一次骑行这么远,在此过程中,老师承担了很大的安全责任,晚上露营时候要点名,早上也得比同学们都起得早。同时也要注重心理建设,在同学们想放弃时老师用各种方法给予他们鼓励。从学校的角度来讲,真的很感谢老师们的辛苦付出,同时希望更多同学加入进来,让人生更加有意义!


For the first time, the students rode so far. When they camped, teachers need to check their safety. In the process, the teacher took a lot of safety responsibilities. Also, teachers had to get up earlier than the students. The most important responsibility for teachers is psychological help. Some students feel that they can't reach the goal on the way. Especially for some mountain roads, they want to give up. Teachers must use various methods. From the school's point of view, thank the teachers for their hard work. At the same time, students who hope to win in the new semester, make our lives more meaningful. Welcome more students to join DoE famlity which will make you stronger both in physical and spritual meanings.
