Dear Primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们,


Welcome to the Primary school bulletin of Tianjin Haileybury International School. Each fortnight, a bulletin will be written which will report on the news and events within the Primary school. There will also be a special focus on the English program in the bulletin. Our Primary school continues to expand, and we have already warmly welcomed many new students and their families into the Haileybury family. We have also welcomed many new Chinese and foreign teachers into the teaching team, and they have been warmly received by staff and students. This week we will introduce four new international teachers who have just joined us. Firstly, lower Primary English teacher, Mr. Brodi Craddock joins us from Canada after 2 years of teaching in Hong Kong. He is currently completing a Master’s degree in World History and enjoys reading, composing music, and carpentry. Mr. Daniil Konev is another new lower Primary English teacher. He has experience in working with children and adults as well as in exam preparation. He enjoys swimming and he writes English songs in his free time. He is delighted to be working in China and is ready for the challenges that working in a foreign country may bring. Todd Nelson is one of our new upper Primary English teachers. He is an experienced educator who has been working in the education industry for 10 years.  Todd comes from Texas (USA) where he was a special education teacher working in inner city Dallas schools. Todd has a wife and two daughters (Tara and Keira) and this is their fourth year in China. Finally, Ms. Cara Suski is also another one of our new upper Primary English teachers. She grew up in a small town located in the middle of Canada and she is here in China with her husband and their eleven-year-old son.  They arrived in the middle of August and are really enjoying China.  Before coming to China, Cara had been teaching in South Korea for eleven years.  She enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, running, biking and spending time at the beach.  She is really looking forward to this school year.  We warmly welcome Brodi, Daniil, Todd and Cara this year and we trust that they will have a productive and successful year here at Haileybury.

At Haileybury, every child matters, every day. This means that we seek to cater to and respect the individual needs of every student at our school. In order to make this motto a reality, we have implemented policies and procedures across all subjects which are aimed at improving the educational outcomes of all of our students. These outcomes are holistic in nature as they focus not only on the test scores of individuals but also on the educational process in the classroom. The implementation of policies and procedures for the purpose of maintaining teaching and learning quality is seen in the Primary school English program. These policies and procedures can be broadly divided into formative and summative performance indicators. Formative performance indicators are process indicators such as student handwriting neatness, the utilisation of the Haileybury Teaching Model (I do, We do, You do), student organisation and teaching formalities. Summative performance indicators show how successful a student has been. Such indicators include student weekly test scores and the quality of homework submission. We will also continue to prepare our students for the internationally recognised Cambridge Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET and PET exams this year. At Haileybury, high standards have been set for the maintenance of quality in teaching and learning every day in the Primary school.


在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子的每一天至关重要。这意味着我们力求满足并尊重学校每个学生的个人需求。为实现这个承诺,我们推行了一系列全学科的教学策略和教学方法,旨在改善并提高我们全体学生的教育质量。我们取得的教学成果在实质上具有整体性,因为我们不仅关注每个学生的考试成绩,同时也兼顾其课堂学习的过程。这些教学方法和教学步骤的有力实施是为了保证小学英语课程教与学的质量。这些政策和方法可以大致分为形成性和总结性两项成绩管理标准。形成性评价也就是过程管理评价,例如:学生书写的整洁度,作业的提交,黑利伯瑞教学模式(我做,你做,大家做)的落实。终结性评价是教师和学生成功的体现,包括周测成绩和提交作业的质量。我们还将继续为学生准备剑桥少儿英语一级、剑桥少儿英语二级,剑桥少儿英语三级,入门英语(KET)和初级英语(PET)的国际认可考试。在黑利伯瑞,高标准的建立都是为了保证小学部每一天教与学质量的提高。

At Haileybury, we seek to provide our students with world-class opportunities which are not provided in other schools. Last week, parents had the opportunity to select fee paying activity programs such as oil painting, modelling, broadcasting, drums, guitar, piano, acting, roller blading, street dance, taekwondo, golf, tennis, robotics and STEM. It is important to develop students who are able to excel in fields outside of the core subjects of English, Maths and Chinese so that they can become well rounded individuals. For example, it is believed that learning piano or a musical instrument will help to speed up a child’s cognitive development. As, it is impossible to provide every single extra-curricular class, actual classes offered will depend on student demand in each category. Please speak to your homeroom teacher if you are unsure which activities will be running this semester.


在黑利伯瑞,我们希望为我们的学生提供其他学校所没有的世界一流课程。在上周,家长有机会选择活动课项目,比如油画、模特、播音主持、爵士鼓、吉他、钢琴、表演、轮滑、街舞、跆拳道、高尔夫、网球、机器人和STEM(科学,技术,工程,数学)。这对于学生培养在英语,数学和中文核心科目以外的领域是非常重要的,他们能够成为全面发展的个体。例如,学习钢琴或乐器有助于加快儿童的认知发展。但是,课程数量有限,因此,实际提供的课程将取决于整体的需求。如果您不确定本学期将开展哪些活动课,请与您的班主任进行沟通。

Haileybury started in 1892 in Melbourne, Australia with five staff and 17 students.  Over the past 127 years, the school has changed dramatically to become one of the leading schools in Australia.  What started as a small school has developed into a large global organization with campuses in Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick, Melbourne (City), Darwin and Tianjin (China). I am pleased to announce that on the 16th of August 2019, CEO of the Haileybury organisation -Mr Derek Scott was named Australian School Principal of the Year at the Australian Education Awards in Sydney. Mr. Scott was also named School Principal of the Year – Non-government for his determination to make Haileybury a great global school while providing individual attention that ensures every student matters every day. Head of Mathematics at Haileybury-Mr. Jason Fischer was named Department Head of the Year and Haileybury also won the Best Professional Learning Program. Congratulations to Haileybury and it goes without saying that Haileybury continues to be at the forefront of Australian education.


黑利伯瑞于1892年在澳大利亚墨尔本成立,成立初期只有5名员工和17名学生。在超过127年的历史中,这所学校已经发生了巨大的变化,成为澳大利亚领先的学校之一。从一所小学校开始,它已经发展成为一个大型的全球性组织,在凯斯伯勒、布莱顿、柏威克、墨尔本(城市)、达尔文和中国的天津市都有校区。我很高兴地宣布,2019年8月16日,黑利伯瑞首席执行官德里克·斯科特先生被授予澳大利亚教育奖——年度优秀澳大利亚学校校长奖。斯科特先生还被授予年度私立学校最佳校长奖,因为他让黑利伯瑞成为一所伟大的全球性的学校。与此同时,学校关注每个学生,确保每个学生的每一天都很重要。黑利伯瑞数学学科主任杰森·费舍尔先生被授予为本年度最佳学科主任,学校还获得了最佳专业学习计划的殊荣。祝贺黑利伯瑞,黑利伯瑞会一直走在澳大利亚教育的最前列。

For the purpose of learning from and making the most out of our rich intellectual and impressive human resources, Haileybury Tianjin teachers have been selected to go on two- or three-week professional learning and development programs at Haileybury Melbourne for some years now. In Australia, they are not only able to see some of the latest education theories put into practice by some of the best educators in Australia, but they are also given the opportunity to improve their own pedagogy by teaching classes at our Melbourne campus. This year, eight Haileybury Tianjin teachers took part in this special learning opportunity during the Summer vacation. Upper Primary school English curriculum coordinator Mr. William Fang was one of these lucky teachers who spent two weeks learning from some of the best educators in Australia. He also stayed in a year 4 classroom where he taught English, Maths and physical education lessons. Additionally, he also had meaningful dialogues with his mentor – seasoned teacher Mr. James Salter and with Primary principal Mr. Grenville Green. Mr. Fang will share his experiences to staff at Haileybury Tianjin to ensure that our staff and students continue to benefit from the rich human capital of our Australian campuses.


为了学习和充分利用我们丰富的智力和人力资源,天津黑利伯瑞的教师们被选中在墨尔本主要的凯斯伯勒校区进行为期两到三周的专业发展项目已经持续几年的时间了。在澳大利亚,他们不仅能够看到一些澳大利亚最优秀的教育工作者践行的最新教育理论,而且有机会通过在墨尔本校区授课来改进自己的教育方法。今年暑假期间,八位来自天津黑利伯瑞的教师得到了这次特别的学习机会。高年级英语课程协调员方老师是其中一位幸运的教师,他花了两周时间向澳大利亚最好的教育工作者学习。他还在一个四年级的班级里教英语、数学和体育课。此外,他还与导师——经验丰富的教师詹姆斯·索尔特先生和小学校长格伦维尔·格林先生进行了意义深刻的对话。方先生将向天津黑利伯瑞的员工分享他的经历,以确保我们的员工和学生一直受益于我们澳大利亚校区丰富的人力资源。

Every child is unique, and every person has far-reaching potential. As mentioned earlier, we are honoured to have so many new students joining us this year. One of these new students is Liu Zhibo from year 6 blue and he has written a self-introduction which he would like to share with everyone:

“Hello, everyone. I'm Liu Zhibo from Year 6 Blue. My English name is Richard. I am very proud of our splendid civilization and culture. I love my country and am always learning from our founding fathers. When I learnt that the ancients played the Book of Songs with the GuQin (Chinese harp), the idea of learning the GuQin myself arose. The music of the GuQin is very beautiful and I believe it brings me into another world. There is Quyuan's “Huaisha”, Li Bai's “Elegance”, and Du Fu's “Depth”. The GuQin and Chinese poetry are inextricably linked. My dream is to stand on the world stage and spread Chinese culture. At Haileybury, I can begin to fulfil my dreams as there is a fusion of Chinese and Western cultures here. I am determined to read the world's classical literature, to stimulate my writing and inner feelings. I want to cultivate further literacy by exploring Chinese and Western classics. Fellow musical and literary enthusiasts, let's share and absorb the true essence of ancient and modern Chinese and foreign literature through reading!”


每个孩子都是独一无二的,每个人都有深远的潜力。如前所述,我们很荣幸今年有这么多新学生加入我们。其中一名新同学是来自6年级Blue班的刘知泊,他写了一篇自我介绍,想要与大家分享:我是来自6Blue班的刘知泊,英文名字是Richard。好奇追求新知的我总是对中华灿烂文明的文化而感到骄傲,我热爱国学,喜欢把历史朝代结合人物作品来学习,当我了解到古人就是把《诗经》用古琴来弹奏的,也萌生了学古琴的想法。琴音是如此的美妙,带我进入了一个神奇的音乐世界,这里有屈原的《怀沙》,有李白的飘逸,还有杜甫的深沉,古琴与诗歌曲赋竟然有着这么密不可分的联系。我有一个梦想,就是站在世界的舞台上传播中国的文化。黑利伯瑞,是我的梦开始的地方。在这个中西方文化交融的环境中,我立志要精读世界经典文学,激发写作兴趣和真情实感,通过比较文学的思辨探索中西方名著,培养文学素养。喜欢阅读的同学们,让我们一起通过阅读分享、汲取古今中外文学中的真正精髓,传承博大精深的华夏文脉。

It has been a great start to the year, and we hope to continue to cooperate with you this year to make it another great year of teaching and learning! If you have any questions, feel free to speak to your homeroom teacher or arrange to meet with a subject teacher.


今年我们有一个非常好的开始,我们希望继续与你们携手共进,让整个学年的教学和学习都有一个好的结果!如果您有任何疑问,请随时与您孩子的班主任老师交流,或安排您与任课老师联系。
