【家长信】黑利伯瑞国高部致家长的一封信

天津黑利伯瑞国际学校

高中校报

来自国际副校长兼国际部主任的致辞:


欢迎回来。


欢迎寒假和春节后所有人回来。不管您在世界的哪个角落,我希望大家都度过了一个愉快的春节。春节快乐!


我们召开了一个暖心的高中部开学典礼,大家欢聚一堂,共同庆祝新年后返回学校听了校领导讲解狗年以及狗身上体现出来的品质:忠诚,正直,淳朴,诚实和值得信赖。


在周日,我非常荣幸地在学校迎接了所有返校的学生,能够亲自接待新同学及其家长,并且跟他们解释学校的架构,我感觉也非常好。对于老生,看到他们安全返校,精神焕发,准备好迎接新的学期,我更是欢欣鼓舞。当天晚上,我们在剧院召开了全体高中学生的集会,在会上,我们跟学生们强调了在本学年接下来的时间里刻苦努力学习的重要性。


本学期在几个方面来说是非常重要的。12年级的学生将在5月28日到6月13日周三之间参加最后的澳洲VCE高考,所以这三个月里,如何管理好时间,如何努力学习对于他们来说至关重要。对于10年级和11年级的学生,也很关键,因为他们要选课和决定将来的大学升学途径。为了帮助10年级和11年级的学生家长更好地了解VCE课程结构以及升学问题,我们将会举办VCE和升学指导信息展示日。

中国和西方教育

在中国,我们说讲课,意为教课;我们说听课,意为参与课堂中在中文里面,讲意为说,听意为听所以讲课和听课意思是老师基本上是讲,学生基本上是听。这两个词告诉我们老师应该为学生教课。


西方教育跟从不同的模式。学生应该积极主动地学习,学生需要外向,独立和有很强的自我学习能力。西方形式的教育,包括讨论,辩论和要求学生在课上问非常多的问题。学生要通过在课上表达自己的观点和向老师提出问题来参与到课堂的学习中。国际教育要求老师和学生在课堂上要有对话,而不是老师一个人在前面讲。

升学指导


选择理想的职业并不是一簇而就的,要先从确定大致方向入手,加之几分勤奋,一些规划和认真自省,就可以沿着合理的方向前行,事半功倍,找到适合自己的职业。

首先,要考虑自己感兴趣的方向,最渴望的职业和自己的爱好,在学校生活中最喜欢做的事情。

其次,要审视自己的能力,自己擅长的课业,与人交往的能力,可以参考熟悉的人对自己的看法。

然后,要面对现状,理想职业需要的学习时间和成本。

最后,是将来的打算,要留在哪里工作,工作机会,稳定性等。

年轻就要不断尝试,了解新兴事物和行业。可以尝试职业兴趣测试,审视自身能力,比如霍兰德职业兴趣测量:http://www.apesk.com/holland/index.html

SENIOR SCHOOL NEWS


FROM THE INTERNATIONAL VICE PRINCIPAL & HEAD OF SENIOR SCHOOL

Welcome Back,


Welcome back after the break and a Happy New Year to all of you. I hope that you enjoyed the Chinese New Year break, wherever you were. Xin nian kuaile!


We had a heartwarming senior school opening ceremony during the week to celebrate our return after the new year. It was pleasing to see our school leaders and principal speak about the virtues of the dog; loyalty, integrity, spontaneous, honest and trustworthiness.


I had the pleasure of welcoming back to school all the students on Sunday. It was great to see the new students with their parents and individually welcome them and explain our senior school structure. For our current students, it was great to see the them arrive safely and looking refreshed and ready to throw themselves back into school life. Later that night we held a senior school meeting in the theatre where we spoke to all our students regarding the importance of how hard they must work for the remainder of the academic year.


This semester is very important on a number of fronts. The year 12 group of students will have their final examinations beginning May 28 and concluding June 5, with the VCE GAT Exam on Wednesday 13 June. So this semester is an important time for all of them in how they manage their time and efforts over the next 3 months. For our Year 10 and 11 students it is also an important time as they will be making decisions on the future subjects and pathways. To help both parents and students of Year 10 and Year 11 we will be holding some key events based on VCE structure and University Expo presentations.

INTRODUCTION OF THE VCE ENGLISH

Our Haileybury VCE English programme is intended to meet the needs of students with a wide range of expectations and aspirations, for students whom English is an additional language.


The study of English contributes to the development of literate individuals capable of critical and creative thinking. This study also develops students’ ability to create and analyse texts, moving from interpretation to reflection and critical analysis.


VCE English focuses on how English language is used to create meaning in texts. Texts selected for study are drawn from the past and present, from Australia and from other cultures. Other texts are selected for analysis and presentation of argument.


Through engagement with texts, students studying English become confident, articulate and critically aware communicators and further develop a sense of themselves, their world and their place within it. English helps equip students for participation in a society and the global community.


Our goal for our students is to extend their English language skills through thinking, listening, speaking, reading, viewing and writing and enhance their understanding, enjoyment and appreciation of English.


Students will be prepared for the literacy and academic requirements of further study.

CHINESE AND WESTERN EDUCATION

In China, we say 讲课 to mean “teach a class” and 听课to mean “attend a class”. In Chinese, the word 讲 means “to speak” and the word “听” means “to listen” so the words 讲课 and 听课imply that teachers primarily speak, and that students primarily listen. These two Chinese words suggest that teachers should lecture their students.


Western education follows a different model. Students need to take initiative in their studies. Students must be extroverted 外向, independent 独立, and have the ability to study effectively by themselves 有很强的自我学习能力. Western-style education involve discussion, debate and requires the students to ask lots of questions in class. Students must make positive contributions to the lesson by expressing their own ideas asking questions to the teacher. International pedagogy requires dialogue between teacher and student; not a monologue.

STUDENT WELFARE

Student welfare has been very busy the first week welcoming new and old students. It was a great to receive all the new students and their parents on Sunday 25th February. The parents and students listened to the leaders of the school and were given a tour of the key areas they need to know in Senior School.

Safety education was also part of the welfare program in the first week, where the homeroom teachers educated their classes on safety issues such as traffic, electricity charging boxes and the boarding house.

Mothers Day is approaching and plans have been put in place for gift making by the students which will be great fun and provide an opportunity for some pleasant surprises for the parents.

Welfare will be arranging a special program for Year 10 during homeroom. It will involve morning reading and vocabulary for the students. We will provide some more information and photos for you over the coming weeks.
