天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学主要校园新闻和信息

公告2,第4周,第1期,2019-2020

2019/9/20


Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学部家长们,


It has been another exciting and eventful two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin.Leadership has been a key theme in the primary school. Being a leader is not easy because with privilege comes responsibility. Leadership, however, builds up and extends a person’s skills and abilities so it is something that we should all aspire towards. The ability to lead and manage oneself and others is an important virtue or skill at Haileybury, so we encourage every child to participate in leadership roles. On the 2ndof September, the primary school held a student council/leadership election. The process involved students applying, giving speeches and being voted in by their peers. On the 11thof September, the 20successful applicants were also trained in their roles. These students have already started undertaking various responsibilities in the management of the primary school such as manning the front gate in the mornings, monitoring the cleanliness of each classroom, making sure that students are walking orderly and assisting teachers with miscellaneous duties. The student leaders have been organised into different groups based on different days of the school week and each leader serves once a week on a rotating basis. It has been great to see our students serving the school community punctually, diligently and respectfully. Through their self-less work and dedication, our student leaders are helping to ensure that the primary school continues to operate smoothly and safely. 

 

在天津黑利伯瑞国际学校的小学部,精彩纷呈的两周已经过去了。学生领袖是小学部这几周的一个重要主题。成为一个领导者并不是件容易的事,因为管理来源于责任。然而,领导能力可以培养和提高一个人的素质和能力,这正是我们所追求的。在黑利伯瑞国际学校,管理自己和他人的能力是一项重要技能。我们鼓励每个孩子都参与到学生领袖的活动中。九月二日,小学部举行了学生会领袖和代表选举。这个过程包括学生申请、演讲,再到同学们的投票。在九月十一日,20名学生通过申请、演讲、投票当选为本届学生领袖。参加完学生管理工作的培训,我们的20位新学生领袖也开始了他们的新职责。学生领袖们根据每周不同的日子被分成不同的小组,每位学生领袖每周轮流执勤一次。其中的一些职责包括在早上在学校大门值班,监控每个教室的清洁度、确保学生安静有序地行走,以及协助教师完成各种各样的任务。很高兴可以看到我们的学生能够准时、勤勉、恭敬地为学校社区服务。通过学生领袖们无私的工作和努力,我们的小学部得以继续顺利安全地运作。

Students at Haileybury are also given the opportunity to become subject specific leaders. One of these is the English prefect. English prefects assist teachers with duties such as the organisation and operation of special English events, English assemblies, the parents’ bulletin and translation duties. At Haileybury, the English prefect positions are fiercely contested. On Fridaythe 6thof September, 11 students from years three to six gave 2-minute speeches in English and Chinese on why they should be elected.Congratulations to Hulk Zhang, Jennifer Sun and Elaina Zhang on becoming the new English prefects for this school year. ‘He is a bad soldierwho doesn’t dream of becoming a marshal’ is a well-known proverb. It speaks of the necessity of promoting and extending oneself in the mundane moments of life if one is to succeed. Opportunities are not always available, so it is important that we take hold of them when they present themselves. I encourage all students to be leaders as you don’t know where your opportunities may take or lead you. 

 

黑利伯瑞的学生也有机会成为特定学科的领导者。其中一个是英语学生代表。英语学生代表协助教师完成特殊英语活动的组织和运作、英语集会、家长公告和翻译等职责。在黑利伯瑞,英语学生代表职位竞争激烈。9月6日星期五,11名三至六年级的学生用中英文就他们为什么要当选发表了2分钟的演讲。祝贺张梵智皓、孙沚菲和张栩慈成为本学年新的英语学生代表。我们都知道这样一句谚语“不想当将军的士兵不是好士兵”。因此,我鼓励所有的学生成为领导者,因为这是一个提高和让自己进步的机会。此外,机会并不总会有的,所以重要的是,当它们出现时,我们要抓住机会。

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 are mainly learnt and developed outside of the 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. Participating in extra-curricular activities is an effective way 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! Below is a full list of activities available to our students this semester.

 

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、有毅力、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,这些通常需要在课堂之外学习和发展。在黑利伯瑞,每个学生的每一天都至关重要。这意味着我们不仅关注学生的学术进步,而且要关注他们的社会、身体和爱好发展。参加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。

Merit awards have been given out to outstanding students at assemblies on Fridays for two years now. The practice of giving out merit awards to high achieving individuals is a practice that also occurs in many Australian schools such as Haileybury Melbourne. Every week, two students from each class in the primary school at HIST are given the awards by their homeroom teachers. The program seeks to encourage and reward students for high academic achievement and virtuous behaviour. Every week, it is pleasing to see many smiles illuminating from the faces of our students when it is announced that they are the award recipients of the week. The awards boost the self-confidence of our students and the giving out of the awards will continue to play an important part in our weekly assemblies. 

 

两年来,我们都会在星期五的集会上对优秀学生颁发荣誉奖项。向成绩优异的个人颁发奖励的做法在许多澳大利亚学校也很常见例如黑利伯瑞墨尔本。每个星期,小学部的各个班级都会由他们班主任选出两名学生并为其颁发奖项。该计划旨在鼓励和奖励学生良好的学习成绩和良好的行为。每周,当我们宣布本周的获奖者时,都能看到笑容在他们脸上点亮。这些奖项提高了学生的自信心,而颁奖环节也将继续作为重要的组成部分出现在每周的集会中。

Every child is unique, and every person has far-reaching potential.Every week, we will introduce to everyone a Haileybury primary school student. This week,freshman - Ryan Zhang from the 2 yellow class has written a self-introduction which he would like to share with everyone: 

I'm Zhang Ruiqi from the 2 yellow class. My English name is Ryan. I am a lively and cheerful child. I'm a bit stubborn, and I'll stick to my point of view on some things because my teacher said, ‘Believe in yourself and others will believe in you.’ I like learning Math. I think numerical games are interesting. I still have a lot to learn and improve in English, but I believe that I can gain more knowledge and longer lasting friendships in my new family at Haileybury.

 

每个孩子都是独一无二的,每个人都有无限的潜力。每周,我们都要向大家介绍一位黑利伯瑞小学的学生。本周,来自2 Yellow班的新黑利伯瑞学生张睿琨写了一篇自我介绍,他想与大家分享:

我是来自2 Yellow班的张睿琨,英文名Ryan。我是一个活泼开朗的孩子。我的性格有点倔强,在某些事情上我会坚持自己的观点。但老师说过:相信自己,别人才会相信你。我喜欢学习数学,我觉得数字游戏很有趣,我在英语方面还有很多需要学习提高的地方,我相信在黑利伯瑞这个新的家庭里我能收获更多的知识,收获珍贵的友情,收获更多的成长。

On the 20thof September 2019, the primary school at HIST held a year one initiation ceremony. For the grade ones, this was their 26thday at school. The activity was set up by head of junior school Ms. Vivian Jia and was organized by grade one teachers, the Chinese department and calligraphy teachers.

Before the start of the ceremony, Ms. Jia displayed, through photos, the profound changes which had already taken place in our students in their first month. For example, on the first day of school, the children were in an anxious state and cried loudly. They had blank faces when they participated in their first flag raising ceremony and it was a novel experience when they had their first school meal. Many were at a loss when they had their first lesson and they were timid during their first swimming class. 

About a month later, however, through the school’s education, the children have become more independent. They can now fold quilts with their partners, dress and wash themselves, walk orderly, greet each other in English and swim together in the ocean of knowledge. Their smiles have reflected their growth and have also rewarded their teachers’ hard work.

The world consists of nations. Haileybury not only attaches great importance to language teaching, but also to the education of traditional Chinese culture. We hope that students who go abroad in the future will not forget their Chinese roots. At the end of the "Junior Connection" segment, the primary school held the year one initiation ceremony which had a goal of leading students onto the path of learning and enlightenment. 

At the end of the ceremony, calligraphy teacher Zhang Jing dedicated a mural of the Chinese character ‘person’ to the students which ended the ceremony. It is hoped that through this ceremony, our grade ones will continue on their journey of growth.


2019920日,天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学部,在开学的第26天,为小一新生举办了童子入泮活动。本次活动由学部贾主任发起,全体小一及语文组教师、书法教师组织完成。

活动开始前,贾主任通过一张张生动的照片,呈现了孩子们在“幼小衔接月“的变化。开学第一天,分离焦虑状态下孩子的嚎啕大哭,第一次参加学校升旗仪式时的一脸茫然,第一次就餐的新奇,第一次课堂中的不知所措,第一次游泳中的胆怯…26天过去了,通过学校的教育,孩子们开始了独立的寄宿生活,伙伴互助叠被子,自己穿衣、洗漱;校园的林荫路下,孩子们排着路队手拉手走向食堂和教室;课间,孩子们自然的用英文彼此间打着招呼;课堂上,孩子们和老师一起畅游在知识的海洋;游泳馆内,孩子们认真的学习着呼气、吸气一张张洋溢着快乐的笑容凝结着全体教师在孩子成长路上的陪伴和引领。

民族的即是世界的。学部不但重视语言的教学,同时也非常重视中国传统文化的教育,也希望未来走出国门的学子能够了解和感知中国文化的博大精深。小学部在“幼小衔接课程”结束后,举办“童子入泮”活动,也旨在以“求知的神圣感”引领每个学童走进“学校学习生活”。

活动最后,书法教师张菁为小一新生献字大写的“人”。活动在庄严的仪式感中落下了帷幕。希望以此为契机,黑利伯瑞小学新生能够开启一段快乐的成长旅程。

The primary school has made notable progress despite being only in the fourth week of school. We have laid concrete foundations for the rest of the academic year so let us continue to work together to ensure that every child continues to improve with each passing day. 

 

尽管我们才开学四周,但黑利伯瑞国际学校小学部已经取得了显著的进步。我们为学年余下的时间打下了具体的基础,所以让我们继续共同努力,确保每个孩子每天都在不断进步。
