2016年全国中学生编采比赛

后港中学在2016年派出了两支队伍参加了由《早报逗号》和推广华文学习委员会主办的 “全国中学生编采比赛。低年级队伍由2E1王思淩、王惠珈、郑妏萱、邝志荣代表,通过访问班上掌握华文程度各异的同学,以及新加坡国立大学中文系副教授许齐雄博士完成《华文路,冷暖自知 甘苦自尝》,获得低年级组二等奖。高年级组由3E2周婕敏、萧淑芬、梁燕玲和林惠诗代表,详细报道了后港中学中三同学到海外进行义工服务,完成《以爱灌溉 用心关怀-后港中学海外义工服务》报道,获得高年级组表扬奖。

编采比赛跨越四个月,过程冗长。学校在二月组队参加比赛后,队伍需要在三月参加一个编采工作坊,了解新闻制作的各个要点。回校后,比赛队伍就要拟定报道专题,访问对象,完成采访、写稿、拍照和设计版面。比赛当天队伍需要把一切准备好的档案带到比赛现场,利用现学的排版软件把构想中的版面排出来。

今年中二队伍作品呈交过程崎岖惊险,在比赛时间截止前15分钟做最后存档时,电脑当机,重启时十个小时的心血荡然无存,包括存档的所有照片和排好的版面。中二组员惊吓之后着手进行排版,所幸得到《逗号》排版老师们的协助,还原早前排好的作品的大部分内容。

郑妏萱、王思淩和王惠珈在总结参加心得时不约而同指出他们要感谢学校给予机会参加这个比赛,并获得宝贵的经验。在这场比赛中,他们也明白了参加比赛不只是输赢,而是过程的学习。他们在比赛里历经了意想不到的意外电脑当机让我们的努力全都白费了。当时他们虽然很伤心,但组员都没放弃,而是选择重新来过。这件事让他们学会了怎样在紧急状态时保持冷静和坚定的意志,想办法解决困难。 邝志荣也进一步提到,参加这个比赛提高了他对华文的兴趣,并一定会在未来更加努力学习华文,争取更好的成绩。

中三队伍的主笔周婕敏认为参与这次比赛,让她获益匪浅,虽然过程非常艰辛,但就因为如此,队员们学会持之以恒,克服挑战。这次比赛让她们有机会在华文世界尽情翱翔,发掘她们对华文的热诚及未来继续进行华文工作的潜能。梁燕玲和林惠诗指出这虽然是她们第二次参加这个比赛,但是她们却从比赛过程中学习到更多的采访经验和排版更细致的技巧。第一次参赛的萧淑芬学会了如何完成一篇好的新闻报道,她感激老师的帮助和队员的合作让她可以乐观面对参加比赛时所面对的一切困难

 The 8th National Chinese News Clip Competition 2016


Mother Tongue Department had taken part in various National Competitions to further expose our students to greater challenges. The following students have done HS proud by wining in “N3 Malay Cluster Scrabble Competition” and in “The 8th National Chinese News Clip Competition 2016”.

Our Hougeans did the school proud and won the Silver Award in the “The 8th National Chinese News Clip Competition 2016 ”. Chen Qing Xiang (3E1), Lim JiaXuan(3E1), Chester See (3E4 ) and Lim Si Ying (3E4) had spent weeks on their preparation. From brainstorming for the topic to be reported to writing down their own script has taught them life skills beyond their classroom. The students leveraged on the shopping event “One Dream – HOME” which was a collaboration among the various stakeholders such as Nanyang Polytechnic volunteers, our PSG members, our Alumni members and our own Hougeans. They featured on the spirit of volunteerism and interviewed many voices from the different stakeholders. They took many pictures and many video clips, sorted them, sieving out the best takes and edited with their new found skills on video editing. They spent hours and even nights in school just to make sure the best is presented, up till the very hour of submission, there were amendments to be made. The 3 minute news clip was finally produced and submitted to the organization.

An invitation to attend the award ceremony came from the organizer and we went to the ceremony without knowing the outcome. Out of more than 30 schools, at that moment where the good news was announced, Hougang Secondary emerged as the runner up (Silver Award). The hard work of the students were paid off.

Chen Qing Xiang commented that by taking part in the competition, she had learnt that no success can be celebrated without any effort. She discovered the true value of a team player and an active contributor by overcoming difficulties encountered during the process. Lim Jia Xuan realised the sweat behind every news broadcasted on TV and published on newspaper, “it’s not easy.”
