HIST主要校园新闻和信息

公告5,第10周,第1学期,2017 -18



Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们,


It has been another busy and action-packed two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. Teachers have been working industriously in order to prepare students for their mid-semester exams. Leading up to the examinations, students completed revision tasks and worksheets across the core subjects of English, Chinese and Mathematics. We are currently in the middle of our first semester in Tianjin and despite the freezing temperature outside, the staff and students all felt the heat from the added pressure of these examinations. Examinations started on Thursday with two English examinations in the morning followed by Chinese and Mathematics examinations on Friday. Judging from the smiles from many faces after the exams, it is safe to say that many students performed exceptionally well. You will receive your child’s academic reports and grades soon so keep your eyes open for them.     


在这最近的两周中,所有老师们都在为了学生的期中考试忙碌着。在考试前,学生们完成了英语、语文和数学等核心科目的复习任务。我们目前正处于第一学期的中期(我们的学年从9月开始),尽管外面的温度很低(我们已经快要进入冬季),但是我们的老师和学生们都展示出了极大的热情在教学和学习的活动中。考试于周四开始,上午有两项英语考试,紧接着周五是语文和数学考试。从考试后许多学生的微笑判断,可以肯定地说,许多学生在考试中表现得特别好。您很快就会收到孩子的学术报告和成绩,所以请您关注他们。


We held our primary school swimming carnival directly after the examinations in our school pool on Friday the 3rd of November. Swimming is often a sport that Chinese children struggle in but this was not evident on the day with many students showcasing conventional stroke and technique. Individual freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke races of varying lengths were contested and it was great to see so many of our students not only swimming fast but also displaying good sportsmanship. 


我们11月3日(星期五) 考试后在学校泳池举行了我们小学的游泳嘉年华活动。游泳通常是一项很困难的运动对于小学生来说,所以此次比赛中个人自由泳、仰泳和蛙泳比赛设置了不同的距离长度,很高兴看到这么多的学生不仅能注重游泳的速度,而且还能展现出良好的运动员精神。


We held our first lower primary English spelling bee on the 27th of October.  Entrants from lower primary were given a list of words to practice spelling. Each class from lower primary entered 3 participants and a total of 15 students competed on the day. The students awed the audience with the large amount of vocabulary they retained.  This time, however, we had three winners – one from each year level. Many thanks to Mr. Williamson for hosting the event and congratulations to all the young participants on learning so many words. From an educational perspective, it is true that young children retain knowledge much faster than adults. This means that the earlier one learns a second language, the more likely he or she will be able to achieve native proficiency in the second language. You have grasped this well as evidenced by your willingness to send your young children to Haileybury. Your children no doubt have many opportunities which other children in other schools could only wish for.  


我们在10月27日举行了第一次初级英语拼写比赛。来自低年级组的参赛者被提供了一组单词来练习拼写。每班都有3名参与者,共有15名学生参加。这一次参赛者们在比赛中展示出了他们庞大的词汇量,我们有三名获胜者,每个年级一名。感谢Mr. Williamson主持了这次活动,同时祝贺小学生们学到了很多的词汇知识。从教育的角度来看,小孩子比成年人更容易掌握知识。这意味着越早学习第二语言,他们就越有可能将第二语言达到母语水平。您把孩子送到黑利伯瑞学校的意愿证明了这一点。毫无疑问,您的孩子们拥有更多其他学校的孩子所希望的机会。



Lastly, we are also excited to announce that 5 students from Monash University will be coming to our primary school in a couple of weeks to complete their teaching practicums. Monash is one of the top eight universities in Australia and this, I believe, is reflective of the high level of interest Haileybury has evoked in Australia as well as the elite partnerships Haileybury Tianjin has been able to forge in less than five years (Haileybury Tianjin began in 2013). We wish the student teachers every success as they embark on the exciting yet challenging task of imparting English language proficiency to Chinese students in China. 


最后,我们也很兴奋地宣布,来自莫纳什大学的5名实习生将在几周内来到我们学校的小学来完成他们的实习活动。莫纳什大学是澳大利亚排名前八的大学之一。天津黑利伯瑞国际学校(天津黑利伯瑞国际学校始于2013年)在不到5年的时间里就能建立起来与其他学校的精英伙伴关系。我相信,这也反映了我校在澳大利亚引起的高度关注。我们也祝愿实习生一切顺利,因为他们开始了一项令人兴奋但又具有挑战性的任务,即能够把英语学习能力传授给中国学生。


At Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子都很重要。
