中教讲话:做好祈福学子的“引路人”
Be a responsible guide to our students

         

尊敬的彭博士、各位同事、下午好!
Dr. Pang, dear colleagues, good afternoon!
    非常感谢彭博士在教师节给我们带来的问候,我也很荣幸代表中方教师和行政管理人员对彭博士的讲话谈点感想。听了彭博士的讲话,我倍受鼓舞。从讲话中,我们感受到了他始终不变的教育情怀、聆听到了他对英校发展的殷切期望,以及对每位员工的深切厚望。
    We are very much thankful to Dr. Pang for his greetings to us on Teachers’ Day. And I am very much honored, on behalf of the Chinese faculty and administrative staff, to speak something about Dr. Pang’s speech. His words inspire me a lot. From his words, we can feel his consistent affection for education, and hear his great expectations on our school and on our staff.
    作为祈福英语实验学校的教师,要认真贯彻校理事会的要求。首先,要不断学习新时代的教育理念。其次,我们应该始终秉承彭先生多年前倡导的“奉献、专业、人文、创新“的祈福学人精神,继续以有理想、有道德、有学识、有爱心的“四有”为目标,真正做好祈福学子“引路人”。
    As teachers of this school, we’ll definitely do as required by the school board. First, we should keep updating our philosophy of education; second, in faculty spirit of “dedication, professionalism, humanism, and innovation” as advanced by Dr. Pang a couple of years ago. And we should try to have dedication, morality, knowledge, and a caring heart, and be a responsible guide for our students.
    做好祈福学子“引路人”,理想信念是根本。在这个价值取向多元的年代,一个有坚定理想信念的老师才能引导学生面对各种诱惑系好“人生的扣子”。我们应该主动学习、深入研究、自觉加强对社会主义核心价值观的认同,做到真学真懂真信,结合学生身心特点,将其创造性地融入日常教育教学工作中,使学生真正入耳入脑入心入行。
    To be a responsible guide for our students, the first important thing is ideal and faith. This is a time when pursuits vary. Only with a resolute ideal and faith, can we guard our students against evil temptations. We should study and accept the core socialist values. If we do study, do understand, and do believe in the core values, we can creatively incorporate them in our daily education, as appropriate for the students.
    做好祈福学子“引路人”,道德情操是前提。教师的职业特性决定了教师必须是道德高尚的人群。《论语》有言:“其身正,不令而行”,教师对学生不仅是言传,更是身教,只有以德立身、以身作则,学生方能以师为镜。
    To be a responsible guide for our students, morality is the precondition. The job specialties of a teacher has made it a must for teachers to be of noble qualities. As the proverb says, “actions speak louder than words!" we teach with words, but more with actions. Only with morality and examples can a teacher serve a mirror to the students.
    做好祈福学子“引路人”,扎实学识是基础。信息化条件下,教师要给学生“一杯水”,首先自己要有“一桶水”“长流水”。我们应该积极面对挑战,树立终身学习理念,既努力提升自身学识能力,又要学会在具体的教育情境之中创造性地应用知识、解决问题,时刻保有理论、知识、技能的源头活水。
    To be a responsible guide for our students, a profound learning is necessary.This is an information society, and a teacher must learn a lot before he can teach a little. We should face this challenge, and have a sense of lifelong learning. We should improve our learning and competence, and we should learn to apply our knowledge creatively for solution of a problem, as needed in our daily education. And we should keep updating our theory, knowledge, and skills.
    做好祈福学子“引路人”,仁爱之心是关键。教育是“仁而爱人”的事业,爱是教育的灵魂,新时代的好老师,不仅要传道授业解惑,更要用宽广的胸怀去尊重、包容、欣赏每一个学生,与学生共同成长。
    To be a responsible guide for our students, a caring heart is the key that matters much. An educator is “catcher in the rye”, and the soul of education is love. A good teacher in the new era should not only educate, but also, with arms open, respect, contain, and appreciate each student, and escort their growth.
    作为祈福学子“引路人”,提高教学质量是我们的首要任务。今年,在疫情防控非常严峻的情况下,我校中考高成绩依然续写辉煌,再创佳绩。同时中学部也面临诸多挑战,但我们依然有信心迎接挑战,我们定将创新管理,追求卓越,精准教研,高效备考,从而源源不断地为社会培养出高素质毕业生。让我们共同努力,不负重托,奏响学校品牌发展的最强音。
    To be a responsible guide for our students, the chief task is to improve our teaching. This year, we’ve continued our glory in Zhongkao and Gaokaoa, in spite of the threat of epidemic. To our secondary school, there are many challenges. But we are confident to overwhelm the challenges. We are determined to innovate management, to seek excellence, to do targeted research, to be highly efficient in preparing seniors for Gaokao, and to develop more high-quality graduates. Let us join our efforts to shoulder the great expectations, and play the key role polishing our school brand.
    感谢大家的倾听!祝大家新学年工作顺利!祝学校蓬勃发展!
    Thank you for listening, and best wishes to you all and to our school!         

 

外教讲话
Western teacher’s speech 2020


    Firstly let me extend my warmest and most heartfelt greetings to Dr Pang and indeed all of the School board who have joined us here today on this annual teacher’s conference of Clifford School.
    首先,请允许我向彭理事长和校理事会致以由衷的深深的敬意,是您的凝聚力让大家济济一堂,共享盛事。
    I am gladdened to acknowledge and truly appreciative of Dr Pang’s recognition of our role as teachers and educators and how we are seen in today’s society. Dr. Pang mentioned our importance and continued increase in status, alongside reasons why we should cherish what we do and further develop how we are doing it. In this I fully agree, with him.
    彭先生肯定了学校教育工作者的作用和在当今社会中的形象与地位,我表示赞同并感到欣慰。彭先生还谈到了教师的重要性和社会地位与日俱增,因而我们应珍惜岗位,不断进取。这一点我也完全同意。
    As guardians of the future, and this is the way I see our job, we all help develop the minds that will shape tomorrow. So, it is our responsibility to never sit back and watch as the world and its contents moves on by. We must all be learning, all of the time, so we can impart our knowledge to the younger, even keener minds, that we have been given the responsibility to educate.
    我认为,教师守护着人类的未来,帮助学生成长,而学生是新世界的创造者。因此,我们重任在肩,整个世界和它的丰富多彩都在奔涌向前,我们切不可坐井观天,袖手旁观。我们必须不断学习,才有资格去教育那些聪明伶俐的学生,才能不辜负人们寄予教师的厚望。
    Recently, the world has been moving fast, very fast. Covid-19 has struck us and hurt us all, in a way few could predict or expect. In many ways this virus has shown us all what it is to be human, we are not infallible and we are not immortal. As a teacher at Clifford School I was proud, no, I am proud of the way, we all came together during this difficult time.
    上半年,世界发生了翻天覆地的变化。新冠疫情狠狠教训了自以为是的人类,而我们连它的影子都抓不到。它从多个方面说明了人类的本质,证明了我们的缺陷和脆弱。但尽管如此,我们大家还是克服了疫情期间的重重艰难险阻,齐聚一堂。作为祈福学校的一员,我始终感到非常自豪。
    We prioritized quickly the needs of those we have a duty to care for, our students. We put various systems, resources and other supportive measures in place. We did this to ensure that our wards would not in fact lose out or be starved of intellectual stimulation or development. We did this as quickly and efficiently as was necessary at time of true strife and worry. We adapted to the world and its changes and quickly responded in an appropriate manner to our students needs. So, in this, we did our truly important job and we did it well.
    疫情控制后,我们一到学校就把全部身心放到学生身上。各个教学系统、各类教育资源、各种教学措施迅速到位,生怕学生的利益受到损失,得不到求学或发展的机会。所幸我们动作快、效率高,在危机面前处置得当。对变化着的世界,我们灵活应对,妥善地做出快速反应,满足了学生了需要。所以说,这一次,我们看得准,做得对,做得好。
    I was also proud and very reassured in the manner in which our school, supported us during this extremely difficult and constantly evolving period of time. We were given financial security and information as necessary, for us all to make the informed decisions we needed, in order to protect ourselves, our families and indeed our students. So for that support I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Dr. Pang and the board as a whole. Thank you.
    在这场非常艰难、不断变化的疫情危机当中,我们挚爱的祈福学校对外籍教师的帮助很大,让我们感到由衷的高兴和十分的安心。对于付出努力的我们,待遇没有缩水,信息渠道通畅无碍,为我们正确决策提供了依据,从而很好地保护了个人、家庭和学生的安全。对学校的这些帮助,我要由衷感谢彭先生和校理事会。
    Finally, I would like to add, that as Dr. Pang mentioned previously, this virus, this Covid-19,is something we will be living and dealing with for the foreseeable future. As educators and role models for others, it is important for us to continue to project a positive and proactive attitude in all that we do and all that we are, during this time. Let us now go forward, embrace the inevitable challenges with energy and enthusiasm. So, we can show the children that watch and learn from us, that even though there are difficult times and challenges in life, both now and for certain in the future. We can and we will overcome them and learn to grow from them.
    最后我想补充的一点是,彭先生前面提到,新冠疫情在可以预见的未来将与人类共存。因此我认为作为“学为人师,行为世范”的我们,今后在做事做人的各方面,都应该有一个乐观向上的态度和有所预见的意识。就让我们勇敢向前,以满满的能量和无比的热情,拥抱无可回避的挑战。如此才能给翘首以盼的学子们做出榜样,告诉他们生活中到处有困难和挑战,无论现在和将来,但我们能够并一定会战而胜之,在困难中成长。
    My sincere thanks for your time and patience, I wish you all, Dr. Pang, the board, faculty and staff members a successful and productive new school year.
    感谢大家听我讲话,祝彭先生和在座的诸位一切顺利,在新的学年里事业有成!谢谢。
