On January 21, 1985, the ninth session of the Standing Committee of the Sixth National People's Congress made a resolution to make September 10 of every year Teacher's Day in China. Respecting teachers and valuing education are a fine tradition in China. As early as the Western Zhou Dynasty in the 11th century B.C., it was proposed that "students should serve their teachers and respect their father". Confucius, an ancient great educator, left behind a series of famous sayings, such as "teach without discrimination", "review the past and know new", "learn while learning". The teacher who preaches, teaches and dispels doubts is praised by the Chinese as the engineer of human soul. On the occasion of the 36th teacher's day, students from the primary school department presented their own songs to express their gratitude to the teachers.

 

1985年1月21日,第六届全国人大常委会第九次会议作出决议,将每年的9月10日定为我国的教师节。尊师重教是中国的优良传统,早在公元前11世纪的西周时期,就提出"弟子事师,敬同于父",古代大教育家孔子更是留下了"有教无类"、"温故而知新"、"学而时习之"等一系列至理名言。传道授业解惑的教师,被中国人誉为人类灵魂的工程师。在这第36个教师节之际,小学部的同学们为教师们献上自己演唱的歌曲,表达对老师的感恩之情。

Teaching and research activities are methods to improve the quality of teaching. Persisting in teaching and research activities for a long time is conducive to the timely transmission of new teaching information, the promotion of teaching experience, the deepening of teaching reform, and the improvement of the overall quality of teachers. Haileybury attaches importance to teaching and research activities as normal work to provide a platform for teachers to exchange and learn. After the beginning of school, our primary school department has held a series of open classes, teaching and research activities as well as professional learning and development workshops. [YG1] Through the normal teaching and research activities and open classes, we can improve the teaching ability and provide students with a better class.

教研活动是提高教学质量的一种活动形式。长期坚持教研活动,有利于及时地传递新的教学信息,推广教学经验,推动教学改革的深化,提高教师的整体素质,有不可低估的作用。黑利伯瑞重视教研活动,将其作为一个常态化的工作,为广大教师提供交流和学习的平台。开学后,我们小学部举办了一系列公开课和教研活动,通过常态化的教研活动和公开课,提高教学能力,为同学们提供更优质的课堂。

It is a tradition of our primary school to wrap our new books with brown paper covers. The biggest significance of book cover is to protect books. Books are used every day, and they are easily dirtied. Wrapping book in covers is done every new semester. Letting children create book covers lets them know how to cherish everything. There is also an intention for students to learn good behaviors by helping them wrap the books themselves. It is not just about wrapping book covers. Through this action, children can learn to do everything carefully and seriously. Good habits are often formed from small things.

 

亲手为我们的新书包上牛皮纸书皮是我们小学部的传统。包书皮最大的意义就在于保护图书,书本天天用,而且极易粘在灰尘和污物,包上书皮,一个学期用下来,还非常新,让孩子们包书皮,就是让他们对每一样东西都懂得爱惜。让同学们亲手包书皮,还有一个用意,就是让他们养成好习惯,不仅是包书皮这一件事,通过这一件事,让孩子学会做任何事,都要仔细、认真,良好的习惯往往是从每一件小事养成的。

After the beginning of school, students from the primary school department held an online student union campaign. The students who participated in the election were broadcast to each class through Tencent conference mode, and then the students selected their own candidates for prefect and student union secretary. The school provides opportunities for all students to exert themselves. Participating in the student union election campaign can help students enhance their courage, self-confidence, eloquence, abilities and experience. Whether it is an interview, the student union or the class committee students need courage to speak for themselves among competitors. If you have courage, you must have self-confidence. Go to the podium to give a speech and report. Slowly improve yourself, adjust yourself, and make progress little by little. This is the accumulation of self-confidence. Every week's regular meeting and the summary after the activity can exercise everyone's eloquence and writing, which undoubtedly helps them become eloquent. Both organizational ability and executive ability can be exercised in the family of the student union. The premise is to be active enough, take part in organizing various activities and be good at summarizing. As long as we stick to it and understand the significance of each activity from planning to summary, it will bring great benefits to our future life.

 

开学后,小学部的同学们举行了在线学生会竞选宣讲活动。参加竞选的同学通过腾讯会议的模式向各个班级直播,然后同学们选出自己心中的级长和学生会干事人选。学校为所有同学提供了锻炼自己的机会。参加学生会竞选可以帮助同学们提升勇气、提升自信、提高口才、提高能力、增加经验。不管是面试学生会还是班委都是需要勇气的,有了勇气才能在那么多竞争者面前尽情的展现自己。有了勇气就必须要有自信,上讲台进行演讲汇报,慢慢的改善自己,调整自己,一点一点的进步,这就是自信的累积。每周的例会、活动之后的总结都能锻炼每个人的口才和文笔,这无疑也是一笔财富,慢慢的让自己变得出口成章。无论是组织能力还是执行能力,在学生会这个家庭中是能够锻炼出来的,前提是要足够的积极,多参加组织各项活动,善于总结。只要坚持下来,领悟每个活动从策划到总结的意义,会对未来的生活带来很大的好处。

For the past two weeks, we were lucky to have Mr. Nathan Williamson and Ms. Cara Suski bringing us the fun and meaningful assembly through VooV.

每周五早上,在黑利伯瑞都有一个英语校会。在校会上,我们可以学到很多东西。我们将更多地了解其他国家学生的生活,学习一个道德故事。在过去的两个星期里,我们很幸运有Mr. Nathan Williamson先生和 Ms. Cara Suski 女士通过腾讯会议为我们带来了有趣而有意义的集会。

Hello, my name is Nathan Williamson (Mr. W) and I have been working at Haileybury for 4 years. My background is in education. My degree is in Early Childhood and Primary education. I am the lower primary school coordinator (Years 1-3) and I have enjoyed my time teaching students at Haileybury. Right now, I am teaching years 1 to 3 and it great to see how the students develop their learning of English. I do look scary to some of the students, but I am a very nice person. Thank you, Mr. W.

Hello everyone, my name is Mr. Fang and I have been teaching at Haileybury since 2014. This year is my 7th year at this school. I have taught in middle school and senior school but I have spent the majority of my tenure in the primary school. I have enjoyed seeing students grow in their English abilities through their own hard work and the teacher’s guidance. Some of my past students have graduated from the school and have gained enrollment into foreign universities such as Australia. I was born in Taiwan but I spent 25 years of my life in Australia where I gained a teaching degree from the University of Western Australia. I believe English competency is important in our global milieu because it has become the lingua franca or common language of the world. Thank you, Mr. Fang.


大家好,我叫William Fang,我从2014年开始在黑利伯瑞任教。今年是我在这所学校的第七年。我曾在中学和高中教书,但我的大部分任期时间都是在小学度过的。我很高兴看到学生们通过自己的努力和老师的指导,英语能力得到了提高。我过去的一些学生已经从学校毕业,并进入了澳大利亚等国外大学。我出生在台湾,但我在澳大利亚度过了25年,在那里我获得了西澳大利亚大学的教学学位。我相信英语能力在我们的全球环境中很重要,因为它已经成为世界通用语或共同语言。谢谢。

Here is an introduction of Heli from Year 6. Heli has been a wonderful student. Let’s know more about her through her writing. 

黑利伯瑞为同学们提供丰富的展示自己的平台。本期,我们一起来了解一下来自六年级的Heli 同学。


I am Heli, a beautiful and generous girl, salty and sweet, full of confidence. I like dancing, swimming and table tennis. I am enchanted by the beautiful melody and soft movements when I dance; The spray from swimming fills me with passion; The orderly pace and swinging of the racket in table tennis make me have high morale. I also like reading, especially mystery novels, I really do! I have studied and lived in Haileybury for one year. What attracts me most here is the green grass and international teaching configuration. This is my dream school.

I like lying on the lawn with my friends, listening to music and watching birds fly by the sky, which can relax my body and mind and relieve pressure. Haileybury has a beautiful environment, a united student community and a good relationship between teachers and students, which makes me feel as warm as my family and loved by my teachers no less than my parents. My favorite activity here is the annual Family Day. By this time we had forgotten our troubles, got rid of our unpleasantness, and talked freely and cheerfully; By this time, no teachers and students, no parents and elders, we are all friends!;By this time, the game was also put on the stage, the game of laughter, let me feel very happy!


Haileybury's class is full of charm. What impressed me most is the English class talking with the foreign teacher. I am fascinated by their teaching methods and enthusiasm: they carefully transmit knowledge to us in class, tell it carefully and deeply, but not boring, which make us open to accept, and sometimes they would tell us some jokes, so as to activate the atmosphere and inspire thinking. After class, the foreign teachers would chat with us, ask us about the effect of listening in class and problems, and answer questions for us the next day.

In this golden autumn, I became a member of the sixth grade in primary school. In this crucial semester, I set a goal for myself: In the study I will continue to work hard to keep the results among the top; In addition, I will improve my management ability, do a good job in the class and the Student union, be a teacher's right-hand man, and serve the students well. In terms of swimming, I hope to get systematic training, improve my level and join the school swimming team as soon as possible.


我是Heli,一个美丽大方,可盐可甜,充满自信的女孩。我喜欢跳舞、游泳、乒乓球。跳舞时优美的旋律和柔美的动作令我陶醉,游泳时溅起的浪花让我充满激情,打乒乓球时有序的步伐和挥动的球拍使我斗志昂扬。我还喜欢看书,尤其是推理悬疑小说,超爱!我在黑利伯瑞已经学习生活了一年的时间,这里最吸引我的就是绿油油的草地和国际化的教学配置,这是我梦想中的学校。

我喜欢和小伙伴们一起躺在草坪上听着音乐看鸟儿从天空飞过,这样可以放松身心,缓解压力。黑利伯瑞美好的环境、团结的学生群体和良好的师生关系让我感受到了如家般温暖和从老师身上得到了不亚于父母亲人般的爱。在这里我最喜欢的活动是一年一度的家庭日。在这一天,每个家庭都会带着美味的食物和饮料来到学生和家长一起动手布置得色彩缤纷的教室,和同学老师一起分享。此时,大家都忘掉了烦恼,摒弃了不愉快,畅所欲言、谈笑风生;此时,没有师生,没有父母长辈,我们都是朋友!此时,游戏也被搬上了舞台,游戏里的欢声笑语,让我感到无比快乐!


黑利伯瑞的课堂是充满魅力的课堂,让我印象最深刻的是英语课与外教老师交谈。他们的教学方式与热情让我为之着迷:上课时认真向我们传输知识,讲得仔细、深入,又不枯燥,让我们易于接受,有时候还会给我们讲一些笑话,活跃气氛、启发思维。下课时外教还会跟我们聊天,询问我们在课堂上的听课效果与存在的问题,第二天为我们答疑解惑。


金色秋日,我升到小学部六年级了,在这个关键的学期,我为自己树立了目标:在学习上我将继续努力,保持成绩的名列前茅。另外,我要提高管理能力,做好班级和学生会的工作,做老师的得力助手,为学生服好务。游泳方面,我希望可以得到系统的训练、提高水平,早日加入学校游泳队。
