20191021日,加拿大新一届执政党选举正式开始了!枫叶学校的高中生们也实时收看了这次选举的直播。

On October 21nd, 2019, the 2019 Canadian Election formally begin! The grade 10 and 11 students of Maple Leaf International Academy, ShenZhen, are watching the live stream of this election.

在观看直播之前,老师饶有创意地让所有学生先投出了自己的一票——假设你是一位加拿大人,你希望投票给哪个政党?枫叶学子们在经历上周的辩论和论文写作等活动之后,也身临其境般地做出自己的选择。

The most exciting part began at 9:50AM, when the students got the chance to take their own vote, just like a Canadian citizen. We also prepared for this event on the previous week by writing essays about the party each one of us support, and of course, debating. All these preparation are so that we could make our own choice in the real election.

会议室里,老师同学齐聚一堂,欢度一场“选举派对”。房间里装饰着红白两色的气球和加拿大国旗,更增添了独特的活动氛围。等等,那是什么?为什么会议室里会有厨具和薄煎饼原料呢?

Students and teachers all gathered around in the conference room, where an Election Party is held. The room is full of balloons, decorated with Canadian flags. And guess what? There are also stoves and pancake materials. What?

原来Mr. O’Brien 在制作薄煎饼上也有一番心得,真是“博学多才”啊!校长Dr. Dawson和加方社会学老师Mr. O’Brien一起做出的薄煎饼更是“外焦里嫩”“十里飘香”。

Our teacher Mr. O’Brien and Principle Dr.Dawson surprised us by their pancakes-making technique. Their pancakes was absolutely De-li-cious!

小小的会议室里香气弥漫,简单的薄煎饼却甜到了心里,看着遥远的地球另一端紧张而激动的选举,听到同学老师热切的讨论和不时的欢声笑语,竟一时分不清身在何方,虽是课堂,胜似友人聚家旁。

In this small conference room we observed the exciting election from half a world away, discussing about the party each one of us supports the most... Every student has been waiting for this moment for months!

随着选举的进行,局势变得明朗起来,也是“几家欢喜几家愁”。大家安静下来,听Dawson校长解释当前形势和直播内容的详细含义。

As the election moves on, the situation on the other globe become clear--- The room got silent---Everyone is waiting for the final result to come out. Meanwhile we listened to the narration of the tendency given by Dr.Dawson.

在选举开始前,所有学生和老师都进行了对下议院各党派议员数量的预测,与最终结果最接近的同学将获得一份幸运奖品——产自加拿大的薄煎饼和枫糖浆,Ta将可以自己制作Mr. O’Brien同款薄煎饼!

Before the election began, we all took our guesses on the number of the parliament seats each party will win, and the student with the beat guess will be given a Canadian present---pancakes and a bottle of maple syrup.

最后,学生们的投票结果统计出来了。根据票数,各个党派自成一队,进行了加拿大小知识有奖问答,内容涉及加拿大地理、政治、体育、音乐和其他小知识,在音乐声中,圆满地结束了这次开心而激动的派对。

In the end of the party, the results of our votes earlier came out. Each “Party ” stood together with their comrades, and performed a Canadian knowledge test. We ended this party with music, and the pops of the balloons.

作为学生,我们有幸能够在学习加拿大政治和社会学的期间观看这样一次选举。而作为枫叶学子,我们有幸能像这样在学中玩、在玩中学。寓教于乐,正是如此。
