Dear Parents of the Graduating Class of 2017

尊敬的2017届毕业生的家长们:


Englishman Francis Bacon is often attributed to have said “Knowledge is Power” in the 16th century. These words ring as true today as they did more than 400 years ago. Indeed, knowledge is power! The more knowledge a person has, the better opportunity a person will have to succeed in the future. You have chosen to send your child to Haileybury, which offers a truly unique curriculum at the forefront of international education.

英国思想家弗朗西斯·培根在16世纪就曾提出“知识就是力量”,虽然这句名言距今已有400多年,但在如今仍能让人受益匪浅。知识就是力量,确实如此!一个人掌握的知识越多,其在未来取得成功的机会就越大。黑利伯瑞学校致力于为学生提供独特的国际教育领先课程,而您则选择将孩子送入具备这种办学实力的学校。


Primary schooling is of critical importance! This year your child has completed a significant learning milestone – Primary Schooling. Although there will be harder and more advanced educational challenges in the future, the knowledge and skills they have gained so far will form the foundation of all future learning.  You will be reassured to know that a lot of knowledge and skills have been attained by your child this year, all of which are valuable and unique in their own individual way.

小学教育至关重要!小学教育是教育阶段的一个重要里程碑,您的孩子于今年完成了小学阶段的学习。虽然他们未来要面对的学习任务更加艰巨,但他们目前所掌握的知识和技能已为其未来的学习打下了一个坚实的基础。学生们于本学年掌握了大量的知识和技能,这将是他们自身一笔独特而宝贵的财富,您应对此倍感欣慰。


This year your child has learnt and developed further proficiency in Maths.  Maths concerns the foundation of many jobs and industries such as engineering, science and computing. Moreover, the Maths curriculum at Haileybury is far more rigorous and advanced than what is offered in Australia or other Western countries. As the world enters the 21st century, more and more industries and jobs will require people to solve and apply Maths in their daily lives. You will be comforted to know that our students will be at the forefront of this future need.

今年,您孩子的数学成绩更上一层楼。数学被视为众多工作和领域的基石,如工程学、科学和计算机应用等。此外,黑利伯瑞的数学课程较之澳大利亚或其他西方国家的数学课程更加严格和先进。我们已迈入21世纪,有越来越多的领域和工作需要人们能够具备解决数学问题并在生活中加以应用。令您无比欣慰的是,我们的学生将是未来该方面的领军人物。


This year your child has also learnt and developed further proficiency in Chinese.  It has been said that this century will be the ‘Asian Century’. Even today, people from all around the world are now learning Mandarin and it is expected that China will soon surpass America in terms of economic, social and political importance. Let us not forget how lucky your child is to learn Mandarin in this new millennium and how Mandarin is fast superseding English in our global community. 

今年,您孩子的语文成绩更是百尺竿头,更进一步。据称本世纪将是“亚洲世纪”,如今,全世界已经掀起了“汉语热”,预计不久后,中国将会在经济、社会和政治重要性方面超过美国。汉语将会很快在全球范围内接替英语,您的孩子能在这个新的千禧年中学习汉语,这无疑是值得铭记的幸运之事。


This year your child has also learnt and developed further proficiency in English.  Currently, it seems as though everything is written in English as English is the Lingua Franca or the common language of the world. English has become the bridge that unites the whole world. Whether it be socially, economically or politically, English competency is of fundamental importance in the 21st century. People who are proficient in English literally have the whole world opened up to them whereas people who lack this proficiency are often hindered from further advancement.

今年,您孩子的英语技能同样出类拔萃。目前,英语已成为接替,这一点从随处可见的英文便可看出。英语已成为连接全世界的桥梁。无论在社会方面、经济方面还是政治方面,英语能力无疑是21世纪一项不可或缺的重要技能。世界的大门向熟练掌握英语的人士敞开,而缺乏英语能力的人士则会在深造的过程中处处碰壁。


This year, your child has completed a truly ‘Global education’. You will be happy to know that there are many Western parents around the world who are envious of Haileybury’s rigorous and advanced Math’s and Chinese curricula. Moreover, there are even more Chinese parents who wish their children could have access to the English resources and teachers which have been available to you and your child at our school. We have not even touched upon the other, equally important, co –curricular programs at our school.  Let us remember that learning is not limited to just what is inside a textbook and that your child has also had the opportunity to develop him or herself this year through the various sport, art and cultural programs offered at our school.

今年,您的孩子完成了真正意义上的“国际化教育”,您应对此感到高兴。许多西方家长对黑利伯瑞严格先进的数学和语文课程钦羡不已,还有很多中国家长渴望他们的孩子能够享有您和您孩子所拥有的英语学习资源和师资力量,此外,我校还设有跨课程项目,同样重要。我们需要记住学习并不仅限于课本上的知识,今年您孩子参加了我校举办的各种精彩课程,包括体育、艺术和文化等,同样使自身能力得到了发展。


In closing all of the primary school staff at Haileybury International School Tianjin would like to congratulate you and your child on completing Primary Schooling. This is your child’s first significant educational milestone. We believe your child has been privileged to have received this unique and cutting-edge education at our school and we wish you and your child every success in the future. When we as teachers are retired and have become old and grey, we would not be surprised to hear that our year 6 students have become the global leaders of their generation.

最后,天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学部全体老师对孩子们完成小学阶段的教育向您和您的孩子表示衷心的祝贺。这是您孩子在教育历程中达到的首个重要里程碑。我们相信您的孩子享受到了我校独一无二的先进教育,我们祝您和您的孩子在未来的生活中一帆风顺。即使当我们退休后,年纪渐迈两鬓斑白,听闻我校6年级的毕业生成为他们这一代人的全球领袖时,我们也一定不会感到惊讶。


Congratulations and Farewell.

对您表示祝贺并道一声再见。
