马六甲培风中学--茶艺讲座

文:杨智茳

这次的茶艺讲座属于学生课外选修课程,是配合培风中学期末考试结束而办的。选修课程多样,除了紫藤的茶艺讲座,还包括咖啡品鉴、酒店管理、西式餐点等等。

茶艺课程包括了茶文化历史及茶叶种类和泡茶法。学生们开始时“热情”不足,但都能专心听课。泡茶课可以让学生亲自动手泡茶,相信这应该是让他们很期待的。泡茶步骤虽然不流畅,动作不熟练,但多数学生都主动重复泡茶动作,以期能做得更好。从这几处来看,学生们的学习态度是应该被认可和赞扬的。

而各项活动和课程能顺利举办,足见校长和各相关负责老师的用心和努力。

 

Tea Talk at Pay Fong High School Melaka

By Yong Chee Chiang

As the students of Pay Fong High School Malacca completed their final exam, Purple Cane organised a tea talk at the school. The tea talk is included as one of the lessons for the school's extra­curriculum elective programme which also offered coffee appreciation, hotel management, and western cuisine, among others.

The Art of Tea programme introduces history of tea culture, tea leaf varieties, and methods of brewing tea. Despite their lack of enthusiasm at the beginning, the students still managed to concentrate on the lesson. The tea­brewing session allowed the students to brew tea, which I think they have been anticipating earlier on. Their tea­brewing procedure wasn't smooth as they were still not familiar with it, they nevertheless put in effort to practise repeatedly to perform better.

From what I have observed I would say they should be credited for their learning attitude.

Thanks to the effort of the principal and the programme's teacher­in­charge, the programme went on smoothly.
