文字稿

Can you guess what it is yet? Six months ago, we’d never heard of it.

你能猜出這畫的是什麼嗎?六個月前,我們壓根就沒聽說過它。

Now, six-year-olds can sketch coronavirus molecules from memory.

現在,六歲的孩子可以憑記憶勾畫出冠狀病毒分子。

“Little bacteria bugs that make you sick. That’s corona.”

「能讓你生病的小細菌。這是新冠病毒。」

“I know about it from the news, my girlfriends and the teacher.”

「我是從新聞、女同學和老師那裡瞭解新冠病毒的。」

For these pupils at Springboard Primary, going back to school comes with five new rules.

對於荷蘭 Springboard小學的這些學生來說,返校有五項新規定。

Only pupils and teachers are allowed inside, scrub every time you enter the building – there’s one of these pumps at every entrance.

只有學校學生和老師可以進入校園,每次進入教學樓都要手,每個入口都配有按壓式免洗洗手液器。

Use shields designed to reduce the spread of germs.

使用可以減少細菌傳播的防護屏

Year groups must attend on different days. In some schools, they’ve split the classes to reduce the number of children in the building.

同一年級的學生必須分開,不在同一天上課。一些學校將班級分開,減少在教學樓內的學生數量。

Older pupils – from age six – must stay 1.5 metres away from their teachers. These are lessons they hope will save lives.

較高年紀的學生,六歲以上,必須與老師保持1.5米的距離。他們希望這些規定可以保護生命。

For the younger ones, practically nothing’s changed. But teachers like Miss Daisy are working behind the scenes.

對於低年級學生來說,一切照舊。但是像黛西老師這樣,有很多老師都在幕後做了大量的工作。

Miss Daisy, teacher, Springboard Primary
I think it’s very important for the children that everything is as normal as possible. We have some new things, new rules into the schools, but the most important [thing] is that they’re happy and they get comfort and they can be a child.

黛西老師      Springboard 小學
「我認為對孩子們來說,一切都儘可能的正常進行是非常重要的。我們在學校裡添加了一些新東西、新規則,但最重要的是,學生能感到快樂、安全,能得到安慰,能像孩子應該表現的樣子生活。」

This feels unusually relaxed. Especially compared to elsewhere in Europe – in Belgium, where the teachers are wearing visors, in Denmark where the children can’t hug their best friends. But here in the Netherlands, they believe the benefits of giving children this freedom outweigh the risks.

這裡讓人感到異常輕鬆。尤其是與歐洲其他國家相比——比利時的老師戴著防護面罩,丹麥的孩子們不能擁抱他們的好朋友。但在荷蘭,人們認為給孩子這種自由利大於弊。

At least ninety-nine Dutch primary school teachers have tested positive for Covid-19 so far this month. They’re still monitoring the infection rates.

本月到目前為止,至少有99名荷蘭小學教師的新冠病毒檢測呈陽性。他們仍在監控感染率。

Every one of these pupils told us they’re happy to be back in class – something to celebrate. They’re starting to find a way to live and learn through the pandemic.

這裡的每個學生都告訴我們,他們很高興能重返課堂,這是值得慶祝的事情。他們開始尋找一種在疫情之下生活和學習的方式。
