Principal's Letter to Sendelta Community | 校长寄语


Principal of Sendelta:John Sun

讯得达国际书院-外方校长


美国顶尖大学教育管理学和计算机科学硕士;

十三年国际学校管理经验:对于国际学校管理体系有独特见解,建立高标准的国际学校管理体系。




亲爱的讯得达家人和朋友们,


上周时间虽短,事情却不少。首先,我想要说这周我们的学生表现非常棒。我特别观察他们在教室使用笔记本/iPad 的情况。大多数学生在用电子产品非常认真地学习,对于这些学生电子产品使用不成问题,只有极个别学生因为玩游戏电子设备被没收(没收完几小时后会还给学生)。上周我决定,教室有老师在的情况下学生使用电子产品,被没收后到下周一才可取回。现在他们认识到电子产品对他们的重要性了,自己会衡量下在教室玩游戏的后果。作为校领导,需要起模范带头作用,一方面我需要坚定制度执行一方面要给建议和关心学生,并需要在学生需求与使用权限之间做平衡,这点还需要家长们的支持。 ECA(社团活动)

下面关于ECA 项目,上周学生参加的竞赛和部分社团完成的活动内容: 

· 明天小小科学家赛事的全国总决赛

· 美国数学竞赛

· 第一机器人竞赛

· 美式辩论

· 科技创造

· 三毛乐团在老师的带领下进行着训练

· Dear Stranger社团进行了一周的社区融合实验,实验了两个主题:”校园建议与“中秋节”,获得学生欢迎· 航空社团航模完成了组装,拟下周进行试飞

· 音乐制作社团组建了个人电台

· 网球社已安排场地开始练习

学生会

学生会是学校管理的重要组成部分。学生会需要积极推进学生权益、聚合学生发声,积极促进变革。在此,我对新一届学生会领导班子表示祝贺。本届学生会分别产生了学生会主席、副主席、理事部长、社团部长、外联部长、文体部长、新闻部长。每一个职位都非常重要,也祝贺你们成功参选。




校长寄语:
在此为今年申请大学的学生提出一些建议。要想进入理想大学和理想的课程学习,不仅仅需要高分。大学的招生审核老师需要从上百个有时甚至上千个申请陈述中筛选,所以如何让自己的申请在众多人选中脱颖而出是非常之重要的。
那么,如何写好个人陈述,让你在众多人选中出彩呢?
学术成绩占整体陈述的70%左右,这说明还有30%需要呈现学生课堂之外的一面。课外活动则可作为其中一部分展现,但如果有“超级课程”的活动会更好,因为这部分会特别突显学生在校外课程领域的投入度。考虑到这一点,如果想进入梦想的首选大学,这里我想提两个关键点。 参与与合作 

个人陈述中要体现出你参与课题的热情和强烈愿望,而不仅仅是了解它。

在讯得达,学生会参观博物馆、展览和其他有趣的地方。如果你想学一门外语,你可以去到讲这门语言的国家; 如果你打算学习建筑,你要去参观一些伟大建筑和地标建筑。展现出你对这个领域投入的激情,不要光讲。

另一个简单的方法是加入一个与你的未来专业相关的社团或俱乐部:法学院学生可以加入辩论社; 模拟联合国非常适合希望学习哲学、政治、经济学或国际关系的学生。

同样,在申请阶段参加讲座是可以脱颖而出的另一种方式。了解下学校或学院是否在当地是否有举办相关讲座或研究。

自我发展

最后,大学希望看到能动性强的学生。通过参加大型在线公开课(Mooc),可以体现你在认真学习这个领域,且学习完成后有结业证书。这些的短时完整的参与学习可以非常好地提高个人陈述的质量。

另外,参加比赛证明自己的能力。参加数学奥赛或征文比赛,这样可以从其他人中脱颖而出。

对于国际学生来说,完成个人陈述是比较有挑战的。不考虑上述课外活动,单就英语水平须达到要求标准,同时还要保持优异的成绩,已经足够具有挑战性了。

但是大学需要看到你的承诺与行动。找办法参加所选学科领域的活动并跟他人合作,可以加深你的学习,同时也会从中有所收获。


以上是我的两点建议。

执行校长

John Sun




Dear Sendelta families and friends,


Last week was short but there are many items we should talk about. Firstly I wanted to say that the students performed rather well this week. I took special notice of students and how they use their computer/iPad in the classroom. For most students, it is not a problem and I found that most students are responsible and use their devices for study. On the other hand there were a few students that played games and their device was confiscated. Previously the devices were taken for a few hours and then returned to students. As of last week I have decided that if students are using their devices in the classroom with a teacher present the devices will be held by the school until the following Monday. Students can now have a sense of how important their devices are and can now weigh the consequences of playing games on their devices while in the classroom. As a leader and a role model I must be firm and at the same time offer advice and compassion. I ask the parents for support as we try to find a balance between what students would like and what they can handle.

ECA

I would like to talk about our ECA program. This is a brief list of the competition and what happened last week in ECA.

· National Finals of the Future Scientists;

· American Mathematical Competition;

· First Robotics Competition;

· American Debate;

· Technology&Creation;

· San Mao Orchestra keeps practicing under the guidance of a teacher;

· The Dear Stranger Club conducted a week of community-integration experiments, with two themes “Campus Suggestion and the Mid-Autumn Festival, very popular to the students; 

· The Aviation Club has completed the assembly and is to conduct a test flight next week;

· The Music Production Club has formed a personal radio station;

· The Tennis Club has arranged the venue to start practicing.


Student Union

The student union is an integral part of how the school is managed. Taking an active part in student’s rights and bringing students together and giving voice to concerns and promoting positive change. I want to take a moment and congratulate the new leaders of the students union.

The selections have been made for the positions of Chairman, Vice Chairman, Director General, minister of associations, minister of outreach, minister of culture, and minister of information. These positions are very important and I would like to congratulate everyone on a successful election.





Principal’s note:


I want to also take a moment and make a few suggestions for the students looking to apply for university this year. To get into your ideal course at your ideal institution, an international student needs more than good grades (although they certainly don’t hurt). The people in charge of reviewing university applications will sift through hundreds – sometimes thousands – of personal statements, so it’s important to make yours stand out. So how do you create a high-quality personal statement that makes you the obvious choice for your institution? Your academic achievements should comprise about 70 percent of your overall statement. That leaves 30 percent to demonstrate who you are outside of the classroom. Extracurricular activities are a part of this but “supercurricular” activities – which highlight how you’ve engaged intellectually with your subject area outside school – are even better. With this in mind, here are two key areas to focus on if you want to get into your first choice of university.Participation and collaboration

Your personal statement should also suggest that you are enthusiastic and willing to participate in your chosen field, not just learn about it.

At Sendelta we will visit museums, exhibitions and other points of interest. If you’re looking to study modern foreign languages, you could go to the country where your chosen language is spoken; if you intend to study architecture, you should visit significant buildings and landmarks. Demonstrate your passion: don’t just tell them about it.

Another easy way to do that is to join a society or club relevant to your prospective degree: law students should join the debating team; Model United Nations is great for students looking to enroll in philosophy, politics, and economics or international relations.

Equally, attending lectures is another way to stand out at the application stage. Find out if your school or college holds talks or research in your local area.


Self-development

Finally, universities want to see that you’re a self-starter. Taking a massive open online course (Mooc) can highlight that you are serious about studying – and will often come with a certificate once you’ve completed it. This small time commitment can improve your personal statement. 

Otherwise, consider entering competitions to prove your capability against other students. Take part in a maths olympiad or an essay competition and you’ll stand out from the rest.

For international students, it can often be challenging to complete a personal statement. Getting your English language levels to the required standard and maintaining excellent grades can be challenging enough, without considering the above extracurriculars.

But a higher education institution needs to see that you are committed. Look for ways to participate in your chosen subject area, to collaborate with others and to deepen your own learning and you’ll be rewarded for it.


These are just 2 points.


Sincerely

Executive Principal

John Sun

班主任分享系列(一) 有人曾说“不当班主任的老师是不完整的老师”也有人说“宁愿做一辈子老师,也不要当班主任”班主任好像是个让人又爱又恨的角色教育是人对人的影响,心与心的交流。对学生而言,班主任是一面镜子,是旗帜,是灯塔。在学生的不同时期,班主任需要调整自己,扮演不同角色。尽管班主任工作有些琐碎、繁杂,但也依然有法可依,有章可循。在讯得达国际书院,每月一次的班主任分享会上,年轻教育工作者们分享着自己独特的带班理念和风格,与学生、家长相处中的心得与体会。学生沟通初中部代表Lina老师班级就像一盆花,需要不断浇水,施肥,修剪才能长大,它需要班主任长期不懈的坚持,才能打造出自己满意的样子。Lina从“严爱兼施”的角度分享班主任的技巧,把握好对学生恰当的“爱”和适度的“严”:爱得太过分、爱得太随便,失去师之尊严;束得太紧、管得太死,愤怒咆哮治标不治本,学生“谈师色变”。同时她认为要尊重每一...

如果可以,在文学作品中你最希望改写谁的命运?————————————————2019我校双旦晚会,中国文化研究社(简称汉研社)给大家带来了短剧《红楼梦新编》,重写了贾宝玉和林黛玉的结局,成就了这一对眷侣。提到中国古代的传统民俗,嫁娶便是从来绕不开的一个话题。中国传统文化的精髓都浓缩在婚礼流程当中。从提亲,到迎亲,再到拜堂,无不体现出古代人对于“礼”的哲学思想。 本次汉研社选择了婚礼作为主题,一是为了衬托出 放假 新年的喜庆,同时,也想弥补一下心中的遗憾:能否改写《红楼梦》中林黛玉的结局?于是,本次短剧便诞生了。筹备由于篇幅原因,我们决定重点体现布置,迎亲,拜堂三个过程。同时,这也是古代婚礼最具代表性的三个流程。  ———————————————————探讨剧情⬇服饰因为背景设定,演员服装选择了明制汉服。Show Time⬇上袄+马面裙(雪雁...

假如我不曾见过阳光,那我也能承受黑暗。道阻且长,行则将至 ;行而不辍,未来可期。黑夜过去,终将迎来黎明! 孩子,去看看吧  那些英勇无畏的热血  那段刻骨铭心的故事 12月26日,讯得达小剧场里座无虚席,与往日的演出不同,台上表演的是一场激情四射而富有教育意义的视觉盛宴。东江纵队淳朴的青少年们一如早上初升的太阳,朝气而温暖地映入眼帘,手中甩动的杂技道具正是他们面对敌人的利器,练功是每天必不可少的,他们时刻准备着。他们为抗战胜利夜以继日的训练,却也拥有放肆的青春……女演员们用精湛的技艺展现出阴柔之美,在黑暗中衬托出暴风雨来临前的静谧。年轻而勇敢的心,无惧于未知而艰险的风景,不动声色中带起观众又一阵暗涌。敌人悄然出现,像是空中盘旋的秃鹰。我屏住呼吸,生怕被敌人看见。在枪林弹雨中匍匐前进的战士们,越过一道又一道艰难险阻的战线。胜利就在前...
