Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学部家长们,


It has been another exciting and thrilling few weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. On the 28th of November, students celebrated Growth Anniversary with the help of middle school students who hosted the event. During the event, our students were asked to reflect on their academic, physical and emotional growth as many important milestones have been achieved. For example, some of our students have completed various Cambridge English exams such as the PET or Starters exam while others have sung their first Chinese sonnet. During the event, our students wrote about their growth on cards which were later hung on the Growth Tree. Students also used the occasion to thank their parents and teachers for the assistance they have received. Following the reflections, a Growth Anniversary cake was shared by each class which was enjoyed by all. Life is full of important milestones, so it is important that we take the time to reflect upon the ones that have already been reached.


在黑利伯瑞的小学部,又度过了许多令人激动的时光。11月28日,在中学部学生的帮助下我们成功举办了成长周年纪念日活动。在活动期间,我们的学生回顾了他们的学业、身心和情感的成长历程,同时他们更多的是回顾自己人生目标一个个地得到的良好的结果。例如,我们的一些学生已经完成了各种剑桥英语考试,如Starters或PET英语考试,与此同时,其他学生也已经学唱了第一首用中文古诗谱成的歌曲。活动期间,我们的学生在卡片上写下了他们的成长记忆语录,并将这些卡片挂在成长树上。学生们也借此机会感谢父母和老师给予他们的帮助。每个班级都分享了一个成长纪念蛋糕,每个学生都很享受这次活动。生活中充满了重要的成长记忆,所以我们花时间回顾已经达到的成长时刻也是很重要的。

A professional delegation which consisted of Ms. Cui and Cameraman Mr. Su from Tianjin Radio and TV station came to our school on the 28th of November to film and assess three plays which were performed in our auditorium by our primary school students. Around 30 primary school students from years 3-6 were involved in the ‘Dream Theatre’ competition. The competition consists of three rounds – the first of which was just completed. The project is led by the head of junior school English - Ms. Cheryl McKenna and the three plays were directed by English teachers Ms. Jennifer Watson and Ms. Barbara Zhu. Our students had been preparing for the three plays ‘Log of Trust’, ‘The Great Wall and the Ice Road’ and ‘The Hero Pilot of China’ for many weeks so it was great to see these performed well on the day. Our young actors and actresses had their make-up applied by our interns prior to the recording and each play was recorded as individual scenes and as a single take. Two of our upper primary students also assisted Mr. Shu on the day by holding microphones which improved the sound quality of the recordings. The results have not been released but the two judges commended the performances, praised the creativity of the scripts and applauded our students for their enthusiasm and hard work. 


11月28日,天津广播电视台崔女士和摄影记者苏老师组成的专业代表团来到我校,对我校小学生在剧院演出的三部戏剧进行了拍摄和评估。大约30名小学生参加了“梦剧场”比赛。比赛分为三轮,第一轮刚刚结束。该项目由小初英语负责人Cheryl McKenna女士领导,三部戏剧由英语老师詹妮弗·沃森女士和朱海明执导。我们的学生已经为《商鞅立木取信》、《长城与冰路》和《中国机长》这三部剧准备了很长时间,所以很期待这一天能够在台上展现最完美自己。我们的活力四射的小演员们在录制之前由我校实习老师化妆,每部戏都分整体拍摄和分镜头两个部分进行录制。我校两位小学生还在那天积极协助了摄影师舒先生,他们拿着麦克风,提高了录音的音质。结果尚未公布,但两位评委都对演出表示赞赏,赞扬剧本的创意,并为我们的学生的热情和努力鼓掌。

On the evening of the 25th of November, the Chinese department held a Chinese poem recitation and singing show. The occasion demonstrated the excellent recitation and singing skills of our primary aged students as well as their extensive understanding of Chinese culture, language and history. Each class took part in the event by preparing and performing a song or a poem on stage. The event was organised by Ms. Rosie Jiang (Head of Chinese) and was hosted by our own students. All students wore costumes according to the theme or era of their presentation and there were some special performances such as Kung Fu and drumming routines. Mr. Peter Rogerson (Executive principal of Haileybury International School) attended the event and applauded the diligence of our staff and students. Mr. Rogerson commented that he particularly enjoyed the singing and the students’ costumes. Ms. Rosie Jiang remarked that through the singing, our students have been able to learn more classical Chinese literature which is often difficult for children in the 21st century to grasp.  Congratulations to all students who participated in this special event and many thanks to the Chinese department for making the event a meaningful and memorable one.


11月25日晚,小学部语文组举行中国诗歌朗诵演唱会。这次活动展示了我国小学生出色的朗诵和歌唱天赋,以及他们对中国文化、语言和历史的了解。每一个班级都在舞台表演一首歌或一首诗参与此次活动。本次活动由教学主任姜主任领导,由我们的学生主持。所有的学生都按照表演的主题或时代穿着服装,还有一些特色表演,如功夫和击鼓。黑利伯瑞国际学校执行校长Peter Rogerson先生出席了活动,并对我们的员工和学生的勤奋工作表示赞赏。Peter Rogerson先生说他特别喜欢学生表演的歌曲和服装。姜主任说:“通过歌唱,我们的学生能够学习到更多的中国古代文学,而这些文学往往对21世纪的学生来说难度比较高。” 祝贺所有参加这项活动的学生,并感谢语文组各位老师,让这项活动富有重要意义并且令人难忘。

The Maths department’s Project-Based Learning (PBL) assignment took place on the 2nd of December and was developed for the purpose of allowing our students the opportunity to solve problems using Maths. PBL allowed our students to participate in different activities, solve meaningful issues, work independently, achieve results and report findings. The project redefined conventional teaching practice by allowing students to solve mathematical problems from a practical orientation. Students did not seek answers for the purpose of finding answers but primarily for the purpose of solving problems. Its core educational premise was to learn by doing rather than speaking. The theme of the assignment this semester was sorting and classifying rubbish. Students were asked to seek answers to the following questions:

-      Why sort waste?

-      How should we classify rubbish?

-      Where does recycled rubbish go?

-      What happens to recycled materials?

Information and data were gathered on these questions by our students. Through the activity, each student worked individually and as a team to answer the questions. Our students were active during the assignment and lively discussions were had in many classes. Many thanks to Ms. Amy Sun (Head of primary Maths) for coordinating the successful event and for making learning a fun and positive experience for our students.


黑利设计院在12月2日采用了PBL(Project Based Learning)项目制学习法用数学的视角发现问题、探究问题、解决问题,其核心思想就在于通过做一件事情来学习,Learn(主动学)而非Teach(被动教)。PBL教学法能让学生主动参与到项目中,解决有价值的问题 ,自主完成学习,得到成果并进行展示交流,实现了课堂的重构,能够取得比传统课堂更好的成绩,并提升创造性解决问题的能力。让学生不是为了答案去寻找答案,而是去寻找解决问题的方法。教师在此过程中的角色是问题的提出者、课程的设计者以及结果的评估者。我们以“垃圾分类”这一主题为载体,引发一串的问题:

为什么要垃圾分类?

垃圾怎么分类?

分类后的垃圾会去哪里?

各大城市垃圾处理的怎么样了?

世界各地是怎么看垃圾分类的?

这一切都需要用数据说话,孩子们找资料,查论据。基于问题的学习,让学习变得更主动。本次活动,每一位同学都为该项目主题贡献出了自己的一份力量,孩子们课后积极思考,课堂积极讨论。我们一直在探索孩子更能接受的学习途径。让学习变得更有趣一些,变得主动一些。非常感谢孙老师(小学数学主任)主持这次活动,并且使学习成为学生们有趣的过程。

China has now become the new frontier of the global education market and it currently leads the world in the number of university graduates. Sources say that there are currently more students studying English in China than there are in America. It is because of these and other reasons that influenced 4 Monash university students to decide to complete their teaching placements in junior school at Haileybury China. By choosing to have their placement at Haileybury, they were able to further develop their teaching skills and apply the latest education theories and concepts learnt at university in an international setting. They were also accompanied, guided and nurtured by experienced and seasoned practitioners along the whole process. For three weeks, they observed, taught classes, wrote lesson plans and had constructive exchanges with their mentor teachers. For many of the student teachers, teaching at Haileybury Tianjin was a real eye-opening experience as some had never taught outside of Australia. They experienced, first-hand, the challenges as well as the rewards of teaching English as a second language to non-native English speakers. We wish them every success as they finish their studies and start their teaching careers in Australia or abroad.


中国现在已经成为全球教育的新兴市场,每年中国的大学毕业生数量是全球的第一名。另有消息称,中国学习英语的学生数量竟然超过了美国。正是因为这些原因,四位莫纳什大学的学生毅然选择了到我校完成他们的教育实习。通过在黑利伯瑞的实习,他们可以把在莫纳什大学所学的最新教育理念在一个国际舞台上加以应用。整个实习过程中,他们全程由我校最有经验的教师指导。对于他们中的多数而言,天津黑利伯瑞的经验绝对是让他们大开眼界的,因为他们从来没有在澳大利亚以外教过书。他们亲身体验了给英语是第二语言学习者上课的全过程,并体会了其中的艰辛和回报。我们衷心祝福他们顺利完成学业并在毕业后开始他们在澳大利亚或者其他国家的新篇章。

Haileybury’s agricultural base was established a few weeks ago and on the 29th of November, a group of lower primary school students visited the greenhouses. The base is located in a place called ‘Northern Spring’ which is in Gao Cun, Wuqing. Students took a shuttle bus and visited the cucumber, tomato and strawberry greenhouses. Everyone showed interest in how these fruit and vegetables grew in such cold weather and the students also received a persimmon to take back to the school. China is a leader in agriculture and has made significant breakthroughs in this field. One of the most famous agronomists in the world is Chinese farmer Yuan Longping who developed a strain of rice that is capable of growing in saltwater and in the deserts of Dubai. We hope our students will also develop a love for agriculture and make significant contributions to our country.


黑利伯瑞的农业基地于数周前已经成立,11月29日,低年级学生参观了温室种植。基地位于武清区一个叫做“北国之春”的地方。学生们乘校车前往基地参观黄瓜、西红柿和草莓温室。大家都对这些水果和蔬菜在这么冷的天气里如何生长表现出浓厚的兴趣,每位学生们还收获一枚新鲜的柿子带回学校。农业方面,中国是世界的领头羊,在这方面取得了重大突破。中国农业专家袁隆平,是世界上著名的农业学家之一,他培育了一种水稻,能够在海水和迪拜沙漠中生长。希望我们的学生也能展现出对农业的热情,并为国家做出重大贡献。
