How much it cost? I mean typical one.
I can't find the cost.

嘩!使兩萬幾銀去烏干達起屋,好有意義,但又好奢侈。就算我有錢我都未必捨得。

舊年暑假,我兩個仔話要做暑期工賺錢,以幫補他們的學費。我話等到您地夠十五歲先諗喇。其實,入大學是否真係要做義工先有分加?如果做有償的暑假工,例如去做麥當奴快餐,或者去商場賣野,對入大學有否幫助?又或者會唔會被認為太貪錢,會被扣分?

佢地係認的,我都贊成佢地去做暑假工揾錢,我覺得對佢地個人成長會有幫助,但我唔知大學裡的教授會點樣睇老麥員工和做街霸式Sales的年青人。

To Africa, just stretched his limits and comfort zone....... not purely for university admission. He learnt how to do fund raising, talked to doner, presented the trip report, understanding the difficulties of those kids and women, sick and death...... After the trip, he has better idea for his career.
Working in MacDonald or other places are fine, not illegal jobs are fine. Volunteer work in HK also useful.

Next time I will be more careful and not mentioned the fee etc.

兩萬幾去非洲唔貴喇!我大仔學校有一團學生去越南起屋,團費都要成兩萬,結果反而呢團最熱門,人人爭住去,我大仔都報呢團但抽唔到,結果抽到去絲綢之路做義工,費用都接近兩萬,好肉赤!

我只係好疑惑,洗咁多錢去咁遠做義工,究竟係佢去幫人,定係人地去幫佢?佢既得著又會有幾多?其實,我地有些家長對呢d活動都有質疑,甚至提出反對,但最後大多數都係乖乖地比錢參加。

All depends on their mind set and expectation.


My son also has a team from the school, they continuous visit an elderly home for 18 months in HK. The consistence and focus also important in CAS.

Tommy兄:  

小女好孤寒, 知道要驶兩萬幾, 一定唔去非洲, 而挑選去长州做義工, 都是去帮人, 只要是真心诚意, 依然是 意义重大 的.

我为人有点虚荣, 当然想她往非洲见世面, 一般行程是十天内, 扣除来回飞行路程两,三天, 余下七天, 大部分时间在camp site 内, 教下英语, 修建课室, 跟孩子玩游戏. 既安全又舒服, 保证开心. 我毫不犹豫的认为大部分孩子的最大得着是: HAPPY! 好HAPPY!

其实好想阿女今年暑假去餐厅洗碗, 清洁洗手间,做足一个月, 不管思维和体魄, 必然有所提升. 然而女大女世界, 多数唔听我讲.   

如各方好友的孩子曾做过这等基层工作, 或已经在McDonald卖饱, 敬请分享!  

annie

p.s. 小女在十一月参加学校的義工行, 去最便宜的泰国留五天, 费用七千六百. camp site 内有些是长期義工, 来至Norway, Australia, Germany 等, 我即时鼓动小女将来用一年gap year 做義工, 她表示那边的義工人数已经过剩, 不是想当義工就可以的.  想来此行肯定是:

阿妈交钱, 请人地去幫佢做義工, 佢就开开心心玩一餐.

Annie,

無錯!做義工唔一定要去咁遠,出門口見到地上有一張廢紙,順手拾起掉進垃圾箱;食完麥當奴善後自己的食物盤,這些都是好有意義的義務工作。

您囡囡喜歡運動,您可以詭佢去參加外展訓練,話佢知野外生活呀,好好玩呀,不過當然要話佢知好辛苦架,無床訓架!如果佢捱得過,以後就好多苦都可以捱了!我大仔舊年暑假參加左Outward Bound 個 Youth Adventure, 8日7夜完全無訓過一張床,晚晚訓帳幕,有一晚要一個人訓郊野公園燒烤爐旁邊的石檯,要到第八日先沖第一次涼。他回家的時候,兩隻腳因皮膚敏感起晒粒粒,不過,之後佢自信心大左,成個人成熟左。值得去試試。

Tommy,

原来大家颇岩key.  做人做事的最高境界是能屈能伸, 如懂得用最少资源, 或找寻现剩资源,或唔用资源去办事和学习, 是另类学习, 有钱都买唔到的.

多谢提议參加外展訓練, 小女跟学校去左几年, 不知多开心. 唔觉得有捱過! 内容应该是大同小异, 但无听过要一個人訓郊野公園燒烤爐旁邊的石檯甘刺激.
少年人觉得摆脱父母的支配才有自豪感, 第八日先沖第一次涼和兩隻腳因皮膚敏感起晒粒粒,简直是战利品.  连阿爸后生都唔甘型仔, 阿仔当然成個人的自信大左.

这边顺带分享是如果怕孩子參加外展訓練会因体质不继而出意外, 可以从年幼开始, 每年暑假参加不同的运动训练, 例如, Archery, Fencing, Climbing, kayaking, wind-surfing, sailing. trampoline,  judo,  gymnastics , 样样学懂一点, 重要是学会安全措施 , 知道危险. 日后登山落水都无甘惊. 总会的夏日初班好便宜, 记得fenching 是HK$20 一堂3小时,  wind-surfing HK$125 全日.

我无甘多闲钱带阿女周游列国, 暑假多数带佢去各大运动总会过日神. 玩得耐,  久不久又有政府资助的海外比赛和集训,偶然是免费,  就当去左见世面, 交番些外地运动员朋友.

令郎如果够tough, 可以参加港岛区的ruby team , 好多鬼仔, 顺便操练英语.

Your sharings are wonderful, do more with less........

Unfortunately, my son is more focus on studying right now, if possible he can join some program's in university. I still remember him taking soccer training in HKFootball Club years ago.

Anchan,


唔好意思, 此处的资深旧友走啥, 我见到 Tommy 兄, 太高兴 就一时忘形, 系甘自说自话,  近乎长舌妇, 搅乱左大家分享'STRATEGY', Sorry!

小女仲系细,  有时间头昻昻, 我还可以扮悠闲, 暂时唔学strategy都无坏, 晚些杀到埋身, 才向你求教 或求救? 希望你到时万勿价意我问得迟, 问得愚蠢, 照样的倾囊相授!

From the 2nd term of IBDP year 1 onward, my son will focus on the coming summer attachment in Law firm, prepare the personal statements for different programs, draft the TOK and EE.....

the last two items will lower his burden in the first term of year 2, for non-JUPAS, UCAS university applications and not side-tacked his studying and affect his final grades.

I always think academic result is the basic and interview provide better view of the candidate, intern more double check for the suitability of the candidate himself and when every criteria are tie, this may make the difference.

For internship can be achieved as follow:

1. Some school provides mentor-ship for senior students, he can apply and find a lawyer as mentor, he can request for an internship or shadowing;

2. Through personal connection to arrange;

3. Some District Councilors provide free legal advice for citizens in that district. He can nominate himself as volunteer to shadow in the service.

May be other parents also provide better ideas.....

Not necessary turning to Law, more on career exploration. A friend offers him a chance to shadow his practices in an International law firm for 1-2 weeks.

He will confirm the program options in the summer. BBA (Law) may be an option, it's upto him.
