Vice Principal:Tremayne Gibson







Dear Sendelta Community


This week officially marks the midpoint of the semester. Our students have completed their midterm exams and our teachers are now preparing detailed feedback on student performance for parents. We warmly welcome all parents to visit the campus this Saturday, October 26th to participate in our first Open House. We also encourage you to bring your children with you to the one-on-one meetings with subject teachers.

On a related note, some parents may have recently received warning letters for academic performance. These letters are not cause for panic. They are only intended to serve as warm reminders for students to work a little harder in certain areas to improve the likelihood of a good final result at the end of the semester. The school strives make sure all students are aware of their academic performance to help them understand where their areas of weakness are so that they can address their problems more effectively. Please note that grades are dynamic and will fluctuate throughout the course of the semester. Also, warning letters are purely internal and will never be shared with colleges or other external parties.

Two general pieces of advice I would impart to all students that might result in higher grades are as follows: 

1) Do your work. Sendelta adheres to a system of ongoing assessment in which exams are not the sole determiner of grades. We measure student performance on every part of the course including exams, class participation, quizzes, projects, etc. Simply handing in their homework assignments on time could result in higher overall grades for many students who received warning letters this month. 

2) Respect all of your courses. We would not put a course on a student’s schedule if we thought it had no value to their preparations for college. No course is less important than another. We ask all students to show equal respect for every class they are enrolled in and give the same level of effort to all of their assignments. As a warm reminder, all courses will appear on the final transcripts sent to universities. Therefore, a low score even in a course a student may consider as unimportant may still hurt their future college application.

根据书院博雅教育的承诺,要求所有学生无论个人偏好要参加丰富多样的课程,这一点在近期的一次招生官来访中也得到充分证实。圣劳伦斯大学董事会成员黄之弘先生(Hook)和国际招生执行总监Musa Khalidi先生访问我校,鉴于我们广泛的学术课程内容,强大的ECA计划以及讯得达的“全人”发展的核心价值观,且与他们访问的深圳其他几所学校与众不同,对我校的学术计划给予了高度评价。

Our commitment to a liberal arts education, in which all students are required to take a variety of courses regardless of their personal preferences, was validated by a recent visit from representatives of St. Lawrence University. Mr. Zhihong 'Hook' Huang, a member of their board of trustees, and Mr. Musa Khalidi, the Executive Director of International Admissions, gave Sendelta’s academic program high praise as unique among the school’s they visited in Shenzhen given our broad academic course offerings, robust ECA program, and Sendelta’s core values of “whole person” development.

On that note, let me conclude this week’s letter by congratulating the members of our basketball team for their 81 to 56-point victory over Huitong International School. Our student athletes traveled to Nanshan last week for the latest in a series of friendship games which we began last semester. Through experiences like this we hope to complement students’ academic growth with development of equally important personal characteristics such as confidence, competitiveness, and self-discipline.

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...
