  Happy Teachers' Day   祝福 灣谷的老師們 教師節快樂!

Happy Teachers' Day to all BVCS teachers! Sincere thanks to our beloved teachers for all the hard work and energy you put into your job!

在華人社會裡九月二十八日被訂定為孔子誕辰紀念日暨教師節。

September 28 is widely observed in the Chinese community as Confucius's birthday and celebrated as Teachers' Day.

遠距上課改變了學習的型態,電腦、視訊應用程式取代了黑板和紙張。有其不受場地限制和快速分享資訊的優點,但也失去和同學共同體驗學習的過程。近期學生和老師都已逐漸適應網路上課,但也聽到更多的迴響聲音,期盼疫情早些受控能重回實體教室上課。請大家繼續居家和注意抗疫事項,當疫情警訊回到安全狀態,就有返校的機會了!

Virtual learning and teaching shift away from the conventional brick-and-mortar classrooms and replace blackboard and paper with computer screens and digital platforms. The promising merits of this new paradigm of education are that it overcomes geographical obstacles and that it allows instant sharing of information. Nevertheless, the price is the lack of in-person social interaction and the absence of synchronous group-learning experience.

Although teachers and students are getting into their strides and becoming more confident and comfortable with the online learning environment as remote instruction stretches on, it would not be hard to notice those voices that yearn for a return to a normal school life and hope for a successful combat against the coronavirus pandemic sooner than later. We might be experiencing quarantine fatigue; yet, we are not yet out of the woods. We should continue to practice social distancing and follow all precautionary measures to avoid exposure to the virus and to prevent the transmission of the disease. When the infection rate of coronavirus has come down to a safe enough level, schools will reopen for operation.

為何選定九月二十八日為教師節?
古代大教育家孔子象徵著「有教無類,因材施教」的萬世師表典型,故以孔子誕辰九月二十八日定為教師節,以紀念至聖先師,並慰勞教師們經年的辛勞!

Why the birthday of Confucius iscelebratedas Teachers' Day?
Teachers' Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honor them for their contribution. Confucius is the teacher exemplar for myriad generations and has been highly regarded as the role model of all master educators in ancient China. September 28 is the birthday of Confucius, the founder of Confucianism, and appropriately it is also celebrated as Teachers' Day in Taiwan. Confucius's educational philosophies such as "education without class distinction" (有教無類) and "teaching according to one's aptitude" (因材施教) has been highly admired in East Asia for thousands of years, and thus has earned Confucius the honorable title of "Ultimate Sage and First Teacher" (至聖先師). On his birthday, people in Taiwan pay tribute to the great educator to remind us to always uphold and maintain the traditional virtue of respecting our teachers.
