Student Achievements

《大頭菜文藝月刊》刊登學院學生作品

71a65ce55ec378b7a5fac354b554061e.jpg

學院學生的作品獲香港資深編輯關夢南先生稱讚為「極有創意」的作品,2016年6月起陸續於《大頭菜文藝月刊》刊登,其中朱家軒同學的〈智能宗教〉講述「史馬風」變成聖物,受全民膜拜。歷史老師提出「史馬風」可能是「聰明的機器」而非聖物,遭宗教法庭的人捕捉,並於廣場示眾、焚燒。目睹的學生「我」一方面對老師的「大逆不道」深感震驚,另一方面對同窗、大眾的殘酷、盲目深感不安。「我」回家後面對聖物,終夜祈禱。(照片摘自「學生文藝」臉書專頁 https://www.facebook.com/hkplmm)

副學士兩年轉眼過去。回想起來,老師和同學都是途上最難忘的風景。老師鼓勵大家發現問題,深入思考,同時與我們共聚歡笑。他們認真的學術態度,也深深影響我們。再者,能夠結識多位死線戰友,彼此相伴而行,正是一段趕快的青春。謝謝你們,讓我擁有這段珍貴而快樂的回憶。

歲月不居,來不及好好珍惜,兩年就過去了。謹此感謝學院的老師,尤其中文科老師,若非他們,我未必會繼續追求知識,繼續追求自己的夢。老套點說,學院老師與學生亦師亦友,這在大專院校是非常難得的。願所有人在黑暗中仍然保持赤子之心。

回首兩年,老師和同學是這段旅程中最美的風景。老師為我們的研究報告一同緊張、為我們奇特的寫作構思一同歡笑、為我們提出的問題一同思考,亦師亦友,他們對學術及文字的認真深深影響我們。而這兩年能得身邊四個共同做報告的戰友,夫復何求,一起死守死線,一起感動快樂,這兩年的回憶,我視作寶物。
