【英文中國郵報學英文】新竹縣大坪國小參加「107年度教育部國中小廁所整修工程績優評選-全國最美廁所」評選,以明亮寬敞、通風便利、融合自然環境及美學課程,在全國近400所學校中脫穎而出,得到全國最美廁所銅獎殊榮,獲得30萬元獎金。

Hsinchu County’s Daping Elementary School won the competition to promote the beautification of bathrooms in both elementary and middle schools last year, winning NT$300,000 for the transformation. The winner was chosen from a pool of almost 400 competitors, with each candidate being judged on spaciousness, lighting, ventilation, aesthetics and adaptation to natural surroundings.

校長彭銘君表示,這座廁所原本是校園的死角,陰暗、異味、空間窄,所幸縣府爭取中央挹注100萬多廁所整修經費,透過工程、課程、學程的結合,融入在地特色和美學課程,成功翻轉鍍「銅」。

School Director Peng Ming-chun explained how this bathroom was a blight on the entire school grounds — dark, smelly, and cramped — the school was given NT$1 million by the county to renovate. With the collective effort of engineers, faculty, and students, the dilapidated facility became a pristine bathroom that blends with its environment.

彭銘君說,透過廁所半透明、彩繪的玻璃、原木色的格柵,可看見室外的綠樹,就像一幅美麗的畫作般,讓如廁也詩意起來。從室外看廁所看,也會被素樸的空心磚牆面、富童趣的藝術作品吸引,以為來到藝術空間。

Peng Ming-chun added that it has an uncanny artistic feel, thanks to its colored glass panes, wood-colored railings, and semi-transparency which allows for the surrounding trees to be seen. Seen from the outside, the hollow brick walls and childlike paintings make one wonder whether the structure is actually an art studio.

大坪國小教導主任徐瑞珠指出,學校整建廁所讓3到6年級學生學生共同參與,利用藝術與人文課程時間,發想創作廁所標示牌,並用卡點西德紙剪貼黏在玻璃上,帶出彩妝創作感,學生的作品在廁所各角落呈現,落實108課綱強調的核心素養教學,讓孩子的學習落實到生活實踐中。

Hsu Rui-chu, director of teaching affairs at Daping Elementary School, said that students from third to sixth grade participated with the artwork during their art class, designing its signpost and pasting colored paper on the glass. In the end, the students’ art can be found in every corner of the bathroom and served as a way to put into practice what students had learned in class.

原本廁所較陰暗,因通風不良,常會飄異味,讓很多同學生不愛上廁所,對於老舊廁所重生再造後,不再會有味道、地面濕滑的問題,同學們都覺得很滿意。

The dark, stuffy, smelly structure that made students reluctant to go to the bathroom is no more. After its rebirth, students are overjoyed to not have to walk through its stench or step on a damp and slippery floor any longer. ●
