天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学主要校园新闻和信息

公告3,第5周,第1期,2018-2019

Dear primary school parents and families.

亲爱的小学部家长们,


It has been another productive and exciting few weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. Two weeks ago, we were honored to have high ranking government officials from Australia and New Zealand come and induct our new English and arts captains for the new academic year. There were, however, two senior student leadership positions which hadn’t been chosen. These were the primary school captain and primary school vice-captain positions. The primary school captain and vice-captain positions are the highest student leadership positions in the primary school. Their chief roles include serving the school community and hosting school events and ceremonies. On Friday the 21st of September, 9 students from year 6 applied for these final two leadership positions. Like before, they had three minutes to convince a panel of 9 international and domestic teachers concerning their suitability. It was encouraging to see so many students enter the election and it was even more heartening to hear many students speaking fluently and convincingly in both English and Chinese before an audience of more than 200 people. It is my privilege to announce that Jack Hu has been elected as the new primary school captain and that Penelope Weng and Philip Chen are the new Primary school vice captains after there was a tie for the vice-captain position. Their student leadership badges were given to them on the 28th of September at assembly by senior teachers of the primary school. We congratulate them on their achievement and wish them every success as they begin their new roles as the student leaders of the primary school. For many of our students, I am sure this is only just the beginning of a lifetime of leadership and excellence. 


天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学部,精彩纷呈的两周又过去了。两周前,我们荣幸地邀请了来自澳大利亚和新西兰的高级政府官员,并介绍了我们新学年的英语和艺术队长。然而,有两个高年级的学生领导职位没有选举。包括小学部长和小学副部长职务。小学部长和副部长是小学部最高的学生领导职务。他们的主要职责包括服务学部和学校活动。9月21日星期五,来自6年级的9名学生申请了最后两个学生领导职位。像以前一样,他们有三分钟的时间来演讲,9名国际和中方教师根据他们的表现进行打分。看到许多学生积极踊跃的参加选举,而且听到许多学生在200多人的听众面前流利而自信地使用双语进行演讲更是令人鼓舞。我很荣幸地宣布,胡雯裕当选为新的小学部长,翁紫暄和陈高非非是新的小学副部长。他们的学生领导徽章是在9月28日由小学部的教师在校会上为他们颁发的。我们祝贺他们取得的成功,并祝愿他们在作为小学生领袖的时候,一切顺利。对于我们的许多学生来说,我相信这也是他们多彩优秀生活的开始。

Haileybury International School Tianjin continues to be at the forefront of global education. On the 26th of September 2018, A high ranking delegation from Monash university came to our school campus for an exchange visit. There are 8 top universities in Australia and they have combined to form a group known as the Group of Eight universities. Monash university is in the top 5 of this group. Moreover, out of all the universities in the world, Times Higher Education ranks Monash university at number 80. For many years now, Haileybury Tianjin has trained, guided and mentored undergraduate and postgraduate Monash university education students who have chosen to complete their teaching practicums in China. China is the new frontier of the global education market and many astute Australian university students understand that the economic and political pendulum of the world has already swung towards Asia. Many Australian students have already taken the initiative in choosing to extend themselves by completing their practicums in China. Last year, five Monash university students completed a three-week practicum at our school. Under the guidance and mentorship of our primary school English teachers, they all successfully completed their placements. The program was enriching for the university students as it was for our primary school staff and students and we trust our close and mutually edifying relationship with one of the world’s top universities will continue well into the future.


天津黑利伯瑞国际学校继续处于全球教育的前沿。2018年9月26日,来自莫纳什大学的高级代表团来我校进行交流访问。澳大利亚有8所顶尖大学,他们联合起来组成了澳大利亚八校联盟。莫纳什大学是这个组织的前5名。此外,在世界上所有的大学中,世界大学排名中莫纳什大学排名第80位。多年来,天津黑利伯瑞国际学校对莫纳什大学本科生和研究生进行了培训、指导,他们选择在中国完成教学实践。中国是全球教育市场的新前沿,许多的澳大利亚大学生明白,世界经济和政治的钟摆已经转向亚洲。许多澳大利亚学生选择通过完成在中国的实习来提高自己。去年,五名莫纳什大学学生在我们学校完成了为期三周的实习。在我们小学英语教师的指导和帮助下,他们都顺利地完成了自己的工作。这个计划对于大学生来说是丰富多彩的,就像对于小学部教师和学生一样,我们相信我们与世界顶尖大学之一的密切和互相启发的关系将一直持续。

The staff and students were thrilled to see you at the primary school parent’s information session on the 29th of September. Parents are always eager to know more about what actually occurs in the day to day operations of the primary school. They are also keen to know what their children are learning and doing. On the day, senior teachers from the different departments of the primary school gave speeches which summarized their pedagogy, curriculum, teaching methodology and overarching goals. The speakers included Vivian Jia (Head of Primary), William Fang (Upper primary English coordinator),Nathan Williamson (Lower primary English coordinator), Eric Xu (Head of student welfare) and Rosie Jiang (Head of Chinese). It was an informative afternoon and we were also delighted to see our year one students inducted into the primary school following their initiation ceremony. Our year one students had practiced their part of the ceremony many times leading up to the important occasion and it was encouraging to see our youngest students bravely and successfully completing the ritual. Learning is a life-long activity, but one is never too young (or old) to begin. We trust that you enjoyed the information session as much the staff and students did.


在9月29日的小学家长会,老师和学生都很高兴见到各位家长。家长们希望了解小学部的学生们的学习和生活。他们也很想了解孩子们在学习什么和做什么。当天,来自小学不同部门的教师们发表演讲,总结了他们的教学理念、课程、教学方法和总体目标。发言者包括Vivian Jia(小学部主任)、William Fang(高年级小学英语协调员),Nathan Williamson (低年级小学英语协调员)、Eric Xu(学生德育主任)和 Rosie Jiang(语文组教研组长)。这是一个精彩纷呈的下午,我们也很高兴看到我们的一年级学生在典礼后正式成为小学生。我们一年级的学生在这个重要场合之前已经多次练习他们的表演,看到我们最小的学生勇敢地、成功地完成仪式,令人鼓舞。学习是一项终身的活动,从不分年岁。我们相信老师和学生都非常享受这次家长会。

Our club and afternoon activity programs are now in full swing. Learning does not just occur in a classroom nor does it only occur from a textbook. Some of life’s most important lessons are the ones we learn when we interact with others. Skills, qualities and virtues such as persistence, perseverance, team-work, self-confidence, leadership, precision, technique, dexterity, hand-eye coordination, bravery, sportsmanship, kindness, flexibility, creativity, patience, personal grooming and upkeep, assertiveness and strength can only be learnt and developed outside of a classroom. At Haileybury, every student matters every day. This means we focus not only on the academic progress of our students but also on their social, physical and emotional development. Joining and participating in extra-curricular activities such as Spanish lessons, golf, soccer, swimming, taekwondo, robotics, ballet, modelling, handicraft, painting and guitar are effective ways to develop oneself. I encourage all students to cherish the rare opportunities which have been afforded to them because you never know where your passion or hobby may lead you!


我们下午的活动课正在全面展开。学习不仅仅呈现在课堂上,也不仅仅呈现在课本上。当我们与他人互动时学到的东西是生活中比较重要的课程。技能、品质和美德,如坚持、毅力、团队合作、自信、领导、精确、技术、灵巧、手眼协调、勇敢、体育精神、善良、灵活、创造力、耐心、个人修养和维护、自信和力量,这些需要在课堂之外学习和发展。在黑利伯瑞,每个学生每天都至关重要。这意味着我们不仅关注学生的学术进步,而且关注他们的社会、身体和爱好发展。参加西班牙语课、高尔夫、足球、游泳、跆拳道、机器人、芭蕾、造型、手工艺、绘画、吉他等课外活动是发展自我的有效途径。我鼓励所有的学生珍惜这些学习的机会,因为你永远不知道你的热情或爱好的力量会促使你进步。

In the technologically advanced 21st century, the way students learn has changed significantly. Learning nowadays has become more efficient, accessible and fun. The days of using chalk and a blackboard are well behind us. Modern classrooms, such as the ones at Haileybury, have interactive whiteboards and projectors which can play videos and stream the internet. Most teachers at Haileybury use their laptops to assist their teaching every day and there are software applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint which have made teaching and learning easier. Mr. Joshua Webb is a popular international English and drama teacher in the primary school and he has developed his own English website which is aimed at providing English learning support and guidance to the parents and students of his year one class. On the website, you can find videos, PowerPoints, songs, activities and games which aid and support what happens in the classroom. It is a useful tool to parents who want to help their children to revise and it is also a useful educational website for parents who want to learn some English themselves! We trust the extra effort that Mr. Webb has put into his teaching has paid off with some rewarding dividends in the English language acquisition of his year one students.


在技术发达的二十一世纪,学生的学习方式发生了很大的变化。如今学生的学习变得更加高效、方便和有趣。使用粉笔和黑板的日子已经离我们很遥远了。比如在黑利伯瑞的现代化教室里,有交互式白板和投影仪,可以播放视频,使用网络。黑利伯瑞的大多数教师每天都使用笔记本电脑辅助教学,如Microsoft Word、Excel和Powerpoint之类的软件应用,这使得教学和学习更加便捷。Joshua Webb老师是小学部里很受欢迎的国际英语和戏剧老师,他自己制作了英语学习网站,这样可以为一年级的家长和学生提供英语学习支持和指导。在网站上,你可以找到课堂上学到的视频、PowerPoints、歌曲、活动和游戏。对于那些想帮助孩子复习的父母来说,它是一个有用的工具,对于那些想自己学习英语的父母来说,它也是一个有用的教育工具!我们相信,Webb老师在教学上所付出的努力,会让一年级学生在英语学习上获得了很大的进步。

Tomorrow is the primary school’s sports carnival. Our students have spent much time practicing their marches and rehearsing their war cries for the carnival. Sports carnivals are a fun and exciting time for students as they are great opportunities for students to participate in physical competitions and games. We trust our students will enjoy themselves in the many games and races on offer on the day such as tug of war, cricket, badminton, orienteering, balloon popping, sponge throwing, running races and relays. This year there are 17 activities for our students to participate in. Moreover, it is the opportune time for our students to relax, have fun and enjoy themselves.


明天是小学的运动会。我们的学生花了很多时间练习队列,排练并练习运动会的口号。运动会对学生来说是一个有趣和令人兴奋的时刻,因为这是他们参加体育竞赛和游戏的绝佳机会。我们相信,我们的学生将会在许多比赛和当天提供的比赛中享受自己,如板球,羽毛球,定向运动,气球爆裂,海绵投掷,跑步比赛和接力赛。今年有17项活动我们的学生可以选择参加。这会让我们的学生放松,享受乐趣,享受自己。
