Look out: Foam of the Student Organizations
许多人认为，一所学校的学生社团活跃，其学生的整体素质与教学质量就会提高，因为它不但丰富了学生的课余生活，增广见识，更重要的，是能够培养学生的能力。 说到这里，我想我校师生已经暗自欣喜——看来我校就是其中一个例子。但是，我在这里要说，其实我校的学生社团并非想象中的那么美好；虽然它们每个学期都有 活动，在学校的大型活动中发挥着不可替代的作用，但是我要说，我们要警惕泡沫现象。It is well considered that a school will have students of high quality as well as good teaching if its activities of student organizations are brisk, which enriches students’ life after class, widens their knowledge and above all develops their ability. Talking about this, I think the teachers and the students of our school are congratulating themselves, considering our school an example. However, I want to say here that in fact the student organizations in our school are not that imaginary fine. Though they have their activities every term and play important role in the large activities that the school holds, I suggest that we be alert to the foam phenomenon.
首先，我们许多社团只注重能展示给师生们看的大活动，却忽略了基础活动。在我们第三届校园文化艺术节中，这个问题已经暴露出来了。由于社团缺乏基础活动，一 旦到了要搞大型活动，他们在策划、筹备、实施上都显得手忙脚乱。我们的摄影展览，那些照片是在展览的前几天才暗中征集，这里借些，那里要些；我们的文学特 刊与电视诗歌散文，截至发稿时，还没有出炉，与其说时间仓促，不如说肚中没货；我们的网页设计比赛，报名参赛的共有多少人呢？我们的管乐团，待到综艺晚会 前几天的加班训练的时候，才有可能没有无故缺席者……我真的不知道，一个社团，究竟是为着一个共同的追求而活动，还是为了等待在众师生面前展示一时“风光”的机会而存在。First of all, our many organizations only pay attention to those large activities that can show off to the mass and, think look down upon basic ones. During our 3rd Campus Culture and Art Festival, this problem has given away. Because of the lack of basic activities, once a large program was coming, they would be in a frantic rush while doing their planing, preparing and practicing. The photos showed in our photo exhibition were collected in secret just at the time when the Festival began. At press time, our special issue of literature and the video of poetry and prose have not come out yet, which resulted from there being no goods in the belly rather than there being no time. And please look at our Web Page Designing Competition that the Computer Association held. How many people entered into it? For our Orchestra, it was impossible to have no one late or absent without acceptable reason until some days before the Synthetic Art Concert when they trained an extra shift. I really do not know an organization, whether exist and do activities for the same hobby or for the chance to show off their temporary “wonderful scene” to the mass.
其次，我们许多社团的活动更多体现的是老师行为和学校行为，学生的参与性不强。江门一中电视台的节目每周三都在播出，你们知道这些节目的背后，一个强大的支 持者是谁吗？——其实这只是“美其名曰”，说得不好听，我就是在问放牛的、牵牛走的人是谁。的确，电视台的“指导老师”名存实亡——注意，我是说“指导老 师”这个称呼名存实亡，所谓的指导老师，现在已成为电视台的大主编，兼写稿，兼外联，兼摄影。是人手不够吗？不，他们有众多的记者和摄影，但许多记者和摄 影已经是真正意义上的名存实亡了。再说管乐团，许多团员都认为这团是学校的，没有自己的份儿，什么时候命令来了，他们才准时到齐，奉命集训。至于平时的训 练就很难做到准时与到齐了。很难想象，一个只为了完成任务而没有自己的艺术追求的乐团是如何能登上大雅之堂的。Second, teachers offer too much help to our some organizations with their activities and, some student members have nothing to do. We know the Television Station of Jiangmen No.1 Middle School has been broadcasting every Wednesday. However, do you know that there is a strong supporter behind those programs? In fact, this is calling it by the fine-sounding name. Speaking shamefully, I am asking who the person that pastures nose-tied cattle is. Surely, the “guide teacher” of the TV station exists in name only. Note: I am saying the name of “guide teacher” exist in name only. The so-called guide teacher has become chief editor and concurrently writer and connector and camera operator. Is it shorthanded? No! They have a lot of reporters and photographers, but many of them really have already existed in name only. Turn to the orchestra, some members consider all things of their club belong to the school, so they come on time and take it serious just when orders come. It is difficult to imagine that an orchestra that has no own pursuing of art and just wants to complete orders could pass through the hall into the inner chamber.
再次，我们许多社团成立时兴致勃勃，宣传广告铺天盖地，成立后杳无音讯，活动计划不切实际，十分空洞。还记得上一年底，脑协成立之时，他们吸收了许多会员， 宣传怎么上网、怎么编程、怎么游戏，后来整个学期都没有活动，导致社员们义愤填膺，来信学生会投诉他们骗取会费。虽然他们现在换了社长，眼前的残局大为改善，但他们的经验教训的确值得将要成立的新足协和象棋爱好者联盟及其他希望组建社团的同学引以为戒。Third, our many organizations were founded excitingly with a world of advertisements, but after that, there was not any news because their empty schedules of activities would not be carried out. At the end of last year, when founded, the Computer Association absorbed many members, advertising how they surfing in the Internet, how they composing computer programs and how they playing games, but afterward, all the schooling term, they had no activity at all! Therefore, the members got angry and sent a letter to the Student Union to charge that they had been cheated of the membership dues by the club. Although the chairperson of the club has changed and the mess has been cleared up now, it is worth learning a lesson from them, especially for the New Football Association and the Chess Fan Union that are to be established and those who want to organize a new club.
第四，我们还有些社团是为他们的刊物而生存的，这里不得不说晨辉文学社和绿风文学社，一个学期下来，他们的最大贡献就只是一份漂亮的会刊，同学们加入与不加入该社好像没多大区别，反正也有会刊看，而且其会刊只不过是少数人的杰作。Forth, our some clubs exist only for their presses. Here I have to say that the Dawn Literature Society and the Green Blow Literature Society are examples. In a whole school term, each largest contribution was a pretty journal of the society. What is worse, every student could receive a copy, which meant the members and other students were the same. Moreover, in fact, making the journals was the minority’s job. How they could name themselves a society?
看来，我们的社团已经积了一层厚厚的泡沫，长此下去，我们的社团文化就要面临一场严重的危机。Look, our clubs have accumulated a thick sheet of foam. If things continue this way, our club culture will meet a serious danger.
那么究竟这泡沫是怎样出现的呢？我们不妨来探讨一下。站在社团的角度来说，主观上，社团的成员的主体意识不强，社团的干部的管理经验不足，在任时间也一般不 超过两年，可相互参考的成功例子不多，专业知识不足等等；客观上，良好的社团文化氛围十分不足，学生社团在校园里的地位十分模糊，缺乏团委、学生会和专业 老师的指引和班主任与家长的支持，升学考试压力大，课余时间不多等等。Then why did the foam appear on earth? We should inquire into it. Looking from the clubs, subjectively, the members’ main-parted ideology is not strong and, the cadres lack experience of administration and their term of office often won’t be over two years and, there are little successful examples for reference and, as high school students, they lacks professional knowledge and etc. Objectively, there is not enough healthy atmosphere of club culture and, the position of the clubs in the campus is not clear and, they lack the guide from the CYLC and Student Union and profession teachers as well as the support from their parents and the head-teachers of class and, they have big pressure of entering university and, there is little spare time after class and etc.
为了消除我们校园社团文化中的泡沫现象，我们必须重新审视我们的学生社团，而现在我们亟需改善的，就是要规范学生社团的权利和义务，确立学生社团在校园生活 中的地位，向学生社团提供必要的帮助，对学生社团实施奖惩制度，只有这样，才能营造良好的校园社团文化氛围，使其健康地成长起来。In order to remove the foam phenomenon in the campus club culture, we must reexamine our student organization. Now what we should be eager to do is to standardize the student organizations’ rights and duties and, give a clear position in school life to them and, give necessary help to them and, make up a system of rewards and penalties for them. Unless go this way, we will not be able to construct the healthy atmosphere of campus club culture and let it develop well.
