一次義工的服務,一個自我反省的機會......做了三次的服務,我從這些活潑開朗的單親家庭兒童中,發現自己完全是「身在福中不知福」。遙想第一次教他們英文生字,有個小朋友認真上課,把生字寫在自己的筆記本,方便溫習。第二次,當我教導他們如何做個科學實驗,需要吹氣球,卻因我紅了的臉而笑了半天。第三次,我們帶他們遊覽科大。唸大學對我來說像是一個理所當然的機會,原來對他們來說是個衝擊,是一道嶄新的門。日後再有偷懶的時候,想一想他們,也許不再容忍自己吧!

我覺得小朋友們與一般的無異,他們都十分可愛、頑皮和活躍。而所謂「單親」家庭所帶給他們的標籤其實都是不必要的,他們都是一群健康快樂的小朋友。回想起小時候,對大學的概念十分模糊,而今次的活動能帶給他們大學生的印象,令他們對大學有所寄望,我覺得十分有意義。
