Abstract

共栄大学教育学部は、東日本大震災の2011 年から、被災した小学校を年2 回訪問し、子どもたちと遊ぶ等のボランティア活動を行ってきた。本研究では、2013-2014 年の4回のボランティア活動を、先に行った2011-2012 年の活動成果の研究と比較し、分析を行なった。その結果、復興とともに求められる支援内容も、瓦礫の片付けといった復旧作業から、図書の整理等の一般的なものに変化した。さらに、被災地の学校は、被災した子どもたちへのケアから、被災を乗り越えて生きる力を育もうとする方向へと移行しつつあった。医療・心理などの専門家による支援が必要な子どもたちはまだ存在するが、大学生ができることは限られている。それでも、学生の満足感は高く、子どもたちや教員から温かく迎えられ、絆も生まれた。大学に戻った学生が彼らの学びを内外に報告することが災害体験の伝承にもなっており、ボランティアは小学校教諭をめざす教育学部の学生にとり、意義深いことに変わりはなかった。

Since 2011, Kyoei University Department of Education has sent groups of volunteer students twice a year to elementary schools in Ishinomaki, a city hit by the East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. This study looks at four visits from 2013 and 2014, and compares them with the results of an earlier paper looking at the 2011-12 visits. The kinds of activities required of the volunteers has changed over the years from major clean-up of debrisin the early visits to more routine activities such as library duties in the later ones. Also, the emphasis has shifted from helping children recover from the shock of their experience to helping them with their educational needs. Compared to before, the need for medical and psychological expertise is greatly reduced, but is still there, although our volunteers were unable to provide it. However, both the University student volunteers, and the pupils and staff at the elementary schools showed great satisfaction with the work they were able to do. The volunteers have shared their experiences and the lessons learnt to the rest of the student body and local community. Many of the participating students continued their relationship with the elementary schools in Ishinomaki, and the experience will probably continue to inform them as they develop as teachers.
