Final Outdoor Learning Session on Life Education before the End of 2022

The unexpected outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic will inevitably leave a profound impact on parents and children. We have experienced life coming to a standstill and endured separations and farewells, leading us to contemplate the meaning and value of life.

Hence, when faced with death, we naturally experience fear and apprehension of it. That’s why “Life Education,” a form of liberal arts education, aims to help students understand life and comprehend death.

Last week, a group of 40 teachers and students from Chong Hwa Independent High School Kuala Lumpur, under the guidance of the Life Education Team, embarked on their first outdoor learning experience, marking their initial encounter with life education throughout their educational journey. Early in the morning, the students arrived at Xiao En Centre for an immersive exploration, with an understanding of the importance of each aspect of the funeral process. They engaged in discussions with the Life Practitioners, experiencing their selflessness and empathy through the Silent Mentor program. Guided by the Xiao En Counseling team, they learned about pre-farewell preparations and engaged in self-reflection.

We are grateful for Kuala Lumpur Chong Hwa Independent High School’s recognition of the compelling nature of Life Education. We hope to empower students to their lives in the present, cultivate rational thinking and emotional experiences, foster a diverse attitude towards life and death, and continuously explore the meaning of life. With a more positive and accepting attitude, we aim to help them face the daily aspects of life.

Let us teach children that death is an integral part of life, preparing them so that they may embrace life and death without regrets.
