書名:《欖球少女戀上隋圓球》/《Rugby Girls: Matsuse Manabu》

作者:松瀨學著 植松由太譯

 

玲木彩香是日本女子欖球代表的主力球員之一,生於一九八九年。

二零一一年三月十一日,日本本州發生「東日本大震災」。九級地震連海嘯把數十個城村毀於一旦。那一天,彩香身在神戶的練習場追跑着隋圓形的欖球。雖然没有親友傷亡,然而,彩香深切體會,人類在大自然力量面前實在太渺小。

「災難發生時我們正在練習,有着莫名其妙的感覺。我反問自己:在這災難陰霾下,許多人受到艱難和悲痛,我們是否可以練習欖球呢?」

在災難中很多人選擇放下,唯彩香選擇了繼續練習。彩香一面為受難者哀悼禱告,但同時深思,我們能做什麼?

「畢竟,我只能打欖球。以前,我以為我只要做好自己本份已經是為大家好。可是現在……我想為大家,我要更努力去打好欖球。」

一個傳球,一個搶抱都用心去做,拚命地追跑,都是向無數的死難者表示深切哀悼,也代表着一份堅持不放棄的信念而挺身去做,也許鼓勵我們要繼續努力做好每一件事。

最近世界與香港發生許多變遷;最近我有機會拿起久遺了的籃球參加比賽;最近看到身邊許多遇疾病患難的師友……但看完這本書讓我很感動得着啟發。

「為了大家,一直為了大家,我想向傷感的社會滲入一股正能量。一點一點地,一步一步地就是要強化日本女子代表隊。」彩香想雖然自己的存在很渺小,但心中已開始燃燒着對欖球的一團火。

憑着欖球少女各人的命運和幾張笑臉,激勵我們再奮鬥積極向前走。

後記:這本書是由北角衞理小學兩位學生植松亮太郎和植松明香的父親所譯寫的。家人親自將書送贈學校,願與師生分享這個充滿勵志的人生故事,在此深感銘謝!

《同行:最美好的陪伴》

鄭起老作;楊少君譯

 

「當所有人都離開你,我依然在你身邊。」

這是多麼有力的安慰和應許!

小息時,看到幾位六年級同學愁眉苦臉,為呈分試的成績,為升中前途感到迷惘;

他失望地哭訴,同學都拒絕不接納他的解釋,為同儕的指斥感到不快;

他昨夜與家人鬥嘴,為父母的溝通和不諒解感到失落;

在成長路上,我們都曾懷疑自己的價值,越重視別人的看法,越怕不被肯定而恐懼。

幸好,主,祢與我同行,就是最美好的陪伴!

 


主耶穌向我說:

 

「就像我向你擋下許多大石頭一樣,

 

你也不要避開落向你的小石子。

因為在你身後的其他人,將會因你而得安慰。

不要懼怕落向你的小石子,

要成為一個忍耐着得勝的人,

不要祈求石子不會落向你,

應當祈求使你成為一個能夠忍受石子落向你的人……

因為落下來的石子的大小,

將會是你可以承受的。」

 

各位同學們,當你感到沮喪失意,像是在一望無際的沙漠中,使盡全力奔馳,然而,不要忘記一件重要的事情,那就是「方向」。

「毫無方向地奔馳的我,直到筋疲力盡倒下時,才能遇見再次拯救我人生的主。

他用自己的寶血作為贖價,將生命泉水白白地賜給我,修復我,使我再次站立起來。

我曾倒下之處,正是綠洲的本源;

我再次站起之處,才是嶄新人生道路的開端。」

各位北衞的同學,特別是六年級的同學們,

願《同行:最美好的陪伴》為你打氣,加油!!!

書名   :《港孩不胖》

作者   :黃榮俊

出版社 :明窗出版社

 

隨着本港的物質生活愈見富足,孩子的飲食亦愈趨豐富多樣。近年來,港孩肥胖的問題受到大眾關注。市面上食物種類選擇可說是五花八門,當中不少是「三高」或有礙健康的食品,即使有些食物聲稱是「健康食品」,但其實並不如宣傳般有益。那麼,孩子們該怎樣做,才可達致「不胖」?

書中主要從飲食方面提供「不胖」祕笈。首先是食物的營養方面,例如脫脂牛奶為甚麼比全脂牛奶較好?又例如「焗薯」比「炒薯」較有營養?此外是飲食習慣,作者釐清一般人常有的錯誤想法,例如少食東西一定有助減肥,但原來不吃早餐,反而容易癡肥;又例如部分能量飲品,引致肥胖的糖份絕不比果汁少。還有,書中有幾篇真實滅肥個案訪問,希望從受訪者的經歷讓讀者對減肥感受更深。

希望你們能主動借閱圖書,掌握「不胖」的方法,追求健康的生活。

Title: Veronica Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle

Author:  Sue Whiting

Publisher:  Eleanor Curtain

 

 

Hi Students,

Today I want to recommend a book that I know you will enjoy reading. 

It’s called “Veronica Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle”, by Sue Whiting.

Every morning this old lady would get up and moan about the size of her house. “What a shame! What a shame!” she would moan. One day a friendly fairy flew by and heard the old lady’s unhappy cries. She stopped and gave the old lady 3 wishes. So, Veronica made a wish, and the next morning she woke up in a house much bigger than the one she had before. A few weeks later the fairy flew past again, and still Veronica would complain. “What a shame! What a shame!” she continued. With two wishes left Veronica made another wish and the friendly fairy made it come true. Still not happy, she moaned and the fairy gave her one last go. Being rich and having many things, Veronica still wanted more! The hard-working fairy became so angry and put Veronica back in her vinegar bottle.

Title: Calvin and Hobbes

Author & Illustrator: Bill Watterson

Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing

 

What do spacemen, giant dinosaurs, time travel and strange sports games have in common with school, homework, annoying parents and household chores? They are all important parts of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip.

Calvin is a normal six-year-old boy whose best friend Hobbes is a stuffed tiger that can talk and move but only when no one else is around. Calvin and Hobbes have to deal with all of the problems of being a kid, like going to bed on time and listening to parents and following rules and doing boring stuff. However, he and Hobbes escape these problems by going on fantastic adventures in their imaginations.

Calvin and Hobbes are a series of comic strips that have been collected into books and they are hilarious. In addition to Calvin and Hobbes, you can look into Wierdos from Outer Space and It’s a Magical World. One of my favorite parts is whenever Calvin imagines his teacher he thinks of her as huge monster. I hope nobody thinks of me like that! These books are funny and creative and show how one kid and his pet tiger use their friendship to get through childhood mostly okay.

Title: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Author: Jeff Kinney

Illustrator: Jeff Kinney

Publisher: Puffin Books

 

A great book to read this term is the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ by Jeff Kinney.

It's a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where he is forced to share the hallways with kids who are a lot taller and meaner.

The main character, Greg, has trouble with family, friends, and his local middle school. He is very concerned about how popular he is at school, and he daydreams a lot about being rich and famous when he grows up. In book one of this series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's newfound popularity to his own advantage, starting a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.

Greg’s experiences at school are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary. If you like this book, there are lots more in the series for you to read!

Here is a bit from the book:
