挑战不可能:极限探险家赋予孩子们勇气和毅力

他在一年的时间里,

徒步6400公里(=绕故宫1871圈),

步行800万步,

如今成为徒步跨越长江的第一人。

这些疯狂的记录,均由英国极限探险家Ash Dykes完成。曾经的他是一个普通的小镇男孩,现在已成长为独自穿越蒙古、攀登马达加斯加八座高峰的全球第一人。

Ash Dykes 空降北京德闳

今天的德闳,迎来了这位特殊的客人——Ash Dykes。创造了多项世界纪录的他,受邀成为北京德闳学校 沙克尔顿系列演讲 Shackleton Lecture 的特殊嘉宾。

沙克尔顿演讲源于杰出校友欧内斯特∙亨利∙沙克尔顿爵士,其被誉为二十世纪伟大的探险家之一。该系列讲座融合伟大探险者们的传奇故事,用冒险历程彰显人类非凡的毅力和逐梦的勇气。系列讲座已步入第五年,冒险家们到访德威国际学校及姐妹学校德闳,开展丰富多彩的讲座及工作坊。

Ash Dykes的经历与演讲主题完美契合,学校希冀通过本次活动让学生们向他学习挑战不可能的魄力和决心。

畅谈十年非凡的冒险历程

上午 带学生感受惊心动魄的探险世界

Ash与学生们分享了他的奇妙旅途:与闪电近距离自拍,寻找动画马达加斯加中的动物们,在泥潭中前行,生吃溪流中的虫子,学习中国功夫和韩国舞蹈……

当然,他还无数次和死神擦肩而过,被毒蜘蛛咬,差点因为疟疾丧命,被卡车撞倒等等。然而,心怀梦想的他从未停止脚步,身上的探险家品质闪闪发光。

看到如此震撼心灵的视频和照片,学生们发出阵阵感叹“Wow,wow,wow!”,每段视频结束后大家依旧兴奋地大喊“One more time!”。在互动提问的环节,学生们争相举手“你见过狮子吗?”“你在丛林里的时候吃什么?”。还有学生问道“你最喜欢的旅程是什么?”,Ash回答“每一段旅途都很特别,但在中国长江的徒步是最让我难忘的!”。Ash对同学们小小年纪就能用英语流畅交流感到格外意外和兴奋。

为了更好地在极限环境下生存,Ash在日常生活中保持着规律和克制的作息。晨跑、搏击、健身,风雨无阻的锻炼让他拥有强健的体魄和惊人的意志。

Ash说:“我是一个来自英国威尔士小镇的普通男孩,没有钱,没有受过特殊训练,甚至没请过专业指导,但我的经历证明,勇敢一些,看似遥远的梦想也能实现。”

随后,三年级的同学跟随Ash在森林中进行了一次难忘的探秘。Ash一边科普关于树木纹理的知识,大家一边观察各种动植物的特征。同学们深深铭记老师的叮嘱“不要伤害任何生物”,只是观看,不去破坏。还有同学自发捡起周围的垃圾,在大自然中同学们健康积极地成长着。

下午 与家长共话环境保护等深刻议题

在生理和心理的考验下,Ash努力挖掘各地生物的多样性,热衷参与当地人的生活,如下田种菜、饲养家禽。他尤为关注环境的变化,“保护环境是我一直坚持在做的事。我们享受现在生活的星球的同时,更要尽全力保护它。”

在大家的意犹未尽中,本次演讲画上句点。学生们切身感受到极限探险所需具备的勇气和保护环境的意义,家长们也对孩子成长过程中性格和品质的培养有了更为深刻的认识。

These crazy records is all belong to British extreme explorer Ash Dykes. He used to be an ordinary boy and now the first person to cross Mongolia and climb the eight peaks of Madagascar in the world.

Ash Dykes visited Dehong Beijing School

Today Dehong ushered a special guest—— Ash Dykes. He has set a number of world records and this year was invited to be the first guest of the Shackleton series speech at Dehong Beijing School.

Shackleton speech originated from the outstanding alumnus Ernest Henry Shackleton, he was known as one of the great explorers of the 20th century. This series of lectures shows the legendary stories of great explorers and demonstrates the extraordinary perseverance and strong courage of human beings. The series of lectures has entered its fifth year, and adventurers have come to Dulwich International School and sister school Dehong to carry out a variety of lectures and workshops.

The experience of Ash Dykes fits perfectly with the theme of the speech. Dehong hopes that students will learn from his courage and determination of challenging impossible.

The extraordinary adventure of ten years

① Feel the thrill of adventure world

Ash shared his wonderful journey of ten years with students: took a close-up selfie with lightning, looked for animals of animated Madagascar in real life, walked in the quagmire, ate bugs in the stream, learned Chinese Kung Fu and Korean dance...... 

Of course, he faced death countless times, bitten by poisonous spiders, almost killed by malaria, and was knocked down by a truck... However, he has never stopped chasing his dream, and his explorer's spirit shines all of the time.

Looking at those amazing videos and photos, students sighed, "Wow, wow, wow!". After each video, everyone still excitedly shouted, "One more time!" In the interactive questioning session, students rushed to raise their hands, “Have you ever met a lion?”“What did you eat in the jungle?”. One student asked “What is your favorite journey?” Ash replied, “Every trip is so special and unique, but the hiking of the Yangtze River in China is the most memorable!”Ash was extraordinarily surprised by students of such a small age were able to communicate with him so fluently.

In order to survive better in the extreme environment, Ash maintains regular and restrained work in daily life. Morning running, fighting, fitness, unimpeded exercise give him a strong body and amazing will.

“I am an ordinary boy from the Welsh town of the United Kingdom. I have no money, no special training, no professional guidance, but my experience proves that brave can overcome impossible.”

Later, the third grade students followed Ash to the forest for an unforgettable exploration. Where everyone observed the characteristics of various animals and plants, Ash told them knowledge of tree texture. Students deeply remembered the teacher's saying, "Don't hurt any creatures", so they just watched but not destroyed. There were even classmates who spontaneously picked up the rubbish around them. In the nature, students grow up healthily and actively.

② Share environmental protection issues

Under the test of physiology and psychology, Ash strived to tap the diversity of living things around the world, and was keen to participate in the life of local people, growing vegetables and raising poultry. He is particularly concerned about environment problems. “Protecting the environment is something I have been insisting on. While we enjoy the planet of living, we should do our best to protect it at the same time.”

Ash told parents the behind stories of adventure—— the harsh environmental problems found in the journey, the personal efforts that can be made about environmental protection. At last, he clarified the meaning of sticking to walking.

When the speech was over, students felt the bravery of the ultimate adventure and had an increased awareness of environmental friendly, and parents have a deeper understanding of the importance to cultivate child's character.

In the future, Dehong Beijing School will launch more series of wonderful speeches. Please pay close attention to our WeChat!
