Newsletter 18 April 2014

各位包校集体成员,

在包校,没有哪一周能被贴上平凡无奇的标签,即便是周末,我们的活动也丰富多彩!

本周的早操上,孩子们为了5月9日的民族舞晚会积极排练了各式传统舞蹈。音乐组的老师们为此编排了优美的舞蹈,我们也非常期待活动当晚孩子们和家长们能为我们带来怎样的惊喜!中文舞台剧《寻找声音的耳朵》的进展也非常顺利,舞台剧的门票几乎已经售罄,相信本次的演出也会大获成功!

今天早上,孩子们又为我们呈上了一场听觉盛宴,孩子们的音乐才华总能让我们感到惊讶。钢琴独奏、大提琴与弦乐四重奏以及钢琴和大提琴二重奏的表演都极为精湛。我们不仅见识到了孩子们的演奏水平,更为他们能演绎如此多类型的音乐而感到惊叹。很高兴表演学生的家长能在现场与我们共同见证这一美好的时光。

令人激动不已的周末终于到了!首当其冲的活动是本周六上午在小学部举行的击剑比赛。此外,我们还有篮球比赛以及80位足球运动员们将于周日在上海美国学校进行周日的足球比赛。另外,还有部分中、小学部的学生将代表学校在周日上海一级方程式赛开幕式上表演。这群孩子将于明天先行前往赛车场地彩排。

最后想要提醒大家的是,包校的二手集市将于明天在长宁校区举行,我们希望在活动现场见您活跃的身影。

祝您和您的家人周末愉快!

请各位家长留意,家访通常安排在8月中下旬,这是开学前家长和老师交流的好机会,请家长们预留好时间。老师会在家访前致电与您沟通具体会面时间。

中文舞台剧信息

在《寻找声音的耳朵》全校的预热集会活动后,家长们掀起了购票和纪念包热潮。这是令人兴奋的好消息!

除了此次表演的学生家长购票外,我们更希望那些没有参与本剧演出的孩子也能来观看包校首场中文音乐剧的演出,我们保证您和您的孩子不会对这出戏失望,同时,这也是培养孩子戏剧兴趣的大好机会呀!

告诉大家一个好消息,此次张导的《寻找声音的耳朵》电影已经入围北京国际电影节,是首部以儿童题材为主题的入围电影。我们恭喜张导,同时,也为包校学生可以第一时间参演这部剧而感到荣幸。

同学们,家长们,倒计时已经开启了,参演学生排练时间会比较特殊,我们进行了如下安排,敬请留意:

4月24日(周四),由于家长老师见面会,所以,我们全部排练暂停一次。

5月5日和6日(周一/周二),所有核心演员排练。16:00-18:00大礼堂

5月7日和8日(周三/周四),所有核心和主要演员排练。16:00-18:00 大礼堂

5月9日(周五),核心,主要和群众演员集体排练。16:00-18:00大礼堂

后续安排或有改变,敬请留意金老师的微信和邮件。谢谢大家!

 

晚托政策

根据学校的政策,4:05时仍未被接回家的学生将被带至晚托教室2220,晚到的家长可自行去2220教室接孩子。

学校每天安排了专门的老师在晚托教室看护学生,但并不额外向家长收取任何费用,此举旨在方便家长,因为我们理解路上总是会有堵车现象,偶然的晚到是再所难免的。但最近有家长向老师提出,不愿意在自己晚到情况下把孩子放到2220教室,而是希望让孩子自行留在操场上。这是不符合学校规定的,为了孩子们的安全,学校不允许学生在无人看护的情况下自行待在操场上,还望家长能够配合学校的政策。

另外,晚托的时间是每天下午4:05-5:00点,希望迟到的家长能够尽量配合在此时间段内把孩子接走。谢谢您的理解!

学校拍照

又到了拍摄学校年刊照片的时节!五一假期后的第一个星期起各个班级和各俱乐部团体将会陆续拍摄照片,请家长查看以下安排并提醒孩子们把跟自己有关的时间安排记在家庭作业日志上。

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

我想在本周的人文关怀角里向各位家长传递一个消息。我想提醒家长们的是,请不要让学生带贵重物品来学校,这一点非常重要。孩子们遗失了贵重物品或对他们有特别意义的物品后,自己会觉得很受挫,同时也为学生管理带来一定困难。有学生将自己的电子产品和大笔现金带来学校,却忘记把东西放在哪里了或不小心弄丢了。我们现在正对孩子进行自我管理的教育,同时,我们也教导他们要怀着诚信与尊重的态度成为一名积极正面的包校成员。孩子们都能很快地吸收这些理念,当然,我们也不排除有人出于羡慕或没有抵住诱惑而拿了不属于他们的东西。包校对这类事件的态度是非常严肃的,我们也一直致力于给学生以最好的行为指引。

在学校、老师教育学生的同时,我们希望家长也可以配合学校提醒孩子们不要带贵重物品来校,如不必要的现金、手机、电子产品或具有情感纪念意义的其他贵重物品。如有特殊情况而必须带来的话,请事前通知班主任老师以便我们对这些物品做好适当管理。

来自图书馆的信息

随着学乐图书俱乐部春季订购的结束,我们很高兴地宣布,我们将与贝克国际图书俱乐部一起拉开夏季订购的帷幕。贝克图书俱乐部提供更广泛的儿童读物以供选择,以及许多最新出版的书籍来吸引读者的眼睛。在贝克图书俱乐部订书,家长需要做的是去我们的网上“家长付款”(Parent Pay)账户(http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2,详见下图),选书后用自己的信用卡直接支付。请注意,在贝克图书订购过程中学校不代收任何钱款,因为一切都将在网上支付。

今天您的孩子会将贝克图书俱乐部的目录带回家,如果不小心遗失了,您也不用担心,因为您可以在网上找到所有的图书目录。

本次贝克图书俱乐部夏季订购的截止日期为59

另外,如果您有三年级的孩子还没有收到全部学乐春季订单订购的书籍,请让孩子带上订单表格,并尽快联系我们的图书馆工作人员。

感谢您的鼎力支持!购书愉快!

42425日无拓展课及晚托安排

由于家长老师见面会将于4月24、25日进行,这两天下午我们将不开设拓展课。请家长做好接孩子回家的安排。敬请留意,鉴于老师都将忙于家长见面会,24日也没有晚托服务提供,请准时来接孩子。谢谢。

F1大奖赛彩排及演出

提醒:参加F1 大奖赛演出的学生,本周六需要参加正式彩排。请相关学生于11:50在包校集合,校车于12点整准时出发开往上海国际赛车场。

重要通知:

周日的时间安排有所更改——参加演出的学生请提前一个小时到校集合,即上午850而非原定的950

周日(420日)                  08:50              在包校集合

                                                 09:00              校车准时出发

无论是周六的最后彩排还是周日的正式演出,所有参加活动的学生必须统一乘坐学校安排的校车前往赛车场,因为只有登记过的车辆及持有当日门票的车辆才能进入场地。

由于周六的彩排是唯一一次在赛车场进行的排练,因此我们要求所有参加演出的学生必须全数出席。

  • 赛车比赛预计在当天下午15:00开始
  • 报名表上选择“比赛开始后30分钟返程”的学生将乘坐于15:45发车的第一辆校车返回包校。由于当天交通情况未知,我们预估校车将于下午17:00-17:15抵达包校
  • 报名表上选择“比赛全程结束后返程 ”的 学生将乘坐于17:30左右发车的校车返回包校,预计到校时间为晚上19:30。我们预估在返城高峰时段可能会遇到通堵塞的状况。

周六音乐项目

由于Dominic老师将为周日的F1 大奖赛演出彩排,因此本周的周六合唱团暂停一次,除此以外,其他周六课程都将照常进行。

来自体育部门的消息

412日在上海美国学校举行的游泳对抗赛

上周六,包校选派了一批平日坚持刻苦训练的学生组成一支代表团与来自上海各顶尖学校的学生进行比赛。虽然比赛的正式结果还未公布,但据我们观察,我们的孩子已获得了很多个人最佳成绩,我们的总分成绩也位列前五。我们将稍后与您分享最终的战果。

我很高兴地通知大家,包校小学部将承办由上海学校体育协会组织的击剑锦标赛

比赛时间为418日,周六的9:30-13:00

比赛类别-塑料花剑比赛(适合低年龄孩童)

或使用完全装备的混合年龄组(参赛选手必须自带击剑金属服)

上海学校体育协会组织的排球锦标赛将在包校中学部举行

本周将有三个组别的球队进行排球比赛,他们分别是11岁年龄段以下球队、12岁年龄段以下球队及15岁年龄段以下球队。

本次代表包校小学部出征的是11岁年龄段以下球队。本周六,在与宋庆龄学校进行冠军赛之前,我们的队员会先进行几场友谊赛作为热身。

Sport for Life 周日足球赛日程提醒:

一年级和四年级的球队为本赛季开了个好头。

感谢上周日冒着风雨仍坚持来为孩子们加油鼓劲的家长们。当天孩子们在球场上的表现也是可圈可点的,他们踢得真棒!对于接送巴士出现的一点小状况,Mike老师也深表歉意,还望一年级的家长见谅。

 

第二次周日足球赛  – 一级方程式赛车比赛将于4月20日即本周日在上海举行,为避免在前往上海美国学校的途中遇上堵车,我们将比以往提前10分钟即8:50在学校集合。

家长联系人: 在遇到空气污染严重(污染指数超过150)、暴雨或其他影响比赛的情况时,请在周日当天的7:45之后联系您孩子所在年级的年级代表确认当天的比赛是否照常进行。

教练(通常情况下是Mike老师)会在7:45之前与球赛主办方先行确认,随后再通知各年级代表开赛与否的结果。感谢各位家长的理解与支持。

请各位家长理解,根据孩子的年龄和竞技状态,我们在努力为之安排合适的比赛。因为各项差距过大而致使孩子总是以大比分输球或赢球都是不利于孩子成长和提高的,因此我们把不同年龄和水平的球员混编入相应的比赛队伍,具体如下。希望家长能支持教练们的安排并一如既往地支持我们的孩子们,让他们成长为更优秀的小运动员。在此,我们要再次感谢您对我们的支持,您的鼓励是孩子们最宝贵的财富,也将是他们不断前进的动力。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

There is no such thing as a quiet week! The weekends are extremely busy too!

The students have been learning a range of traditional dances in Assembly this week in readiness for the Dance evening which is coming up on May 9. Our music department has excellent moves and we look forward to seeing the students and their families showing us what they can do!

The Chinese Production “In Search of Sound” is progressing extremely well and the tickets have all but sold out. It promises to be a great show.

This morning, we were treated to a wonderful selection of music performances in assembly. The talent of the students never ceases to amaze us. The piano solos, cello and string quartets, and piano and cello duets were extraordinary not only for their quality, but also for the variety of musical genres performed. It was lovely to see the parents of the performers in attendance.

We look forward to an action-packed weekend, too!  On the sports front, we are hosting a fencing competition on Saturday morning, we have teams playing basketball and eighty footballers will be playing on Sunday at the Shanghai American School. We are also sending many of our Primary and Secondary students to represent us at the Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday. They will be rehearsing at the circuit tomorrow.

Finally, we have our Eco-Fair tomorrow morning. We look forward to seeing you there!

Have a good weekend.

You might get a call ahead of time to confirm the scheduled the meeting.

Message on Chinese Production

It’s exciting news that the production ticket sales are going excellent and the souvenir handbags are soon becoming an “it” item in the community after the successful warm-up assembly.

Besides the families whose children have participated in the show, we really want those students who are not involved this time to enjoy the show as an audience. We’re confident that we won’t let you down and you will be supervised by students’ effort, that’s guaranteed! Meanwhile, this will also be a great opportunity to cultivate your children’s interests in drama.

Another great news is that the movie of “In Search of Sound” which was directed by the director of our Chinese production has been nominated at the Beijing International Film Festival. This is the first child theme shortlisted movie. Congratulations to Ms. Zhang and we are honored to be the first ones to act and deliver the movie in a special way.

Tick tock goes the clock. As the big day is approaching, we’ve made some special rehearsal arrangements for the actors. It is listed as follows:

The rehearsal on April 24th will be cancelled due to Parent Teacher Conference.

May 5th and 6th (Monday and Tuesday): All core actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 7th and 8th (Wednesday and Thursday): All core actors and main actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 9th (Friday): All core actors, main actors and other actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

For any follow-ups or updates, please check the messages sent by Ms Lily’s via WeChat and email. Thanks!

Late Supervision Policy

According to school’s policy, parents or guardians should come to school and pick up students who are not going back home by school buses promptly. Students who have not been collected by 4:05 will be taken to Room 2220 in the East Building so parents know where to find their children when being a bit late to get them.

The school understands that parents will sometimes be late due to occasional traffic jams and to provide a safe environment for the students who haven’t been picked after school, we work out a late supervision plan by asking teachers to stay late after school. This is a special service without extra charge offered by school; we try our best to support families anytime in our power. However, some parents recently proposed to leave their children alone on the playground when they are late for picking up instead of their children being supervised by teachers indoors. This request is not in accordance with the school’s regulations and we will not allow students to stay in the playground without supervision from a safety perspective.  We hope that parents can work closely with the school to minimise unnecessary chances of accidents for students. Children are our first priorities after all.

Just a kind reminder, the late supervision starts at 4 and finishes at 5. Hope that parents who are late can try their best to come and get their children by 5. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

School Photo

The school photo sessions are coming. We will arrange for students to have their photos taken starting from the week right after the May Holiday. Please check the timetable below and suggest your child write the dates down on his/her homework dairy as a reminder.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

This week I have just one quick message for pastoral care. I would like to remind parents about the importance of students not bringing valuable things to school. It is very difficult when a child loses something of financial or sentimental importance to them. We have had students bring electronics and large sums of money to school and misplacing them or losing them in some other way. We are working with students on both self-management as well as being a positive member of the community with respect and integrity. Children learn quickly from these lessons but there may be some envy or temptation to take something that does not belong to them. We take it very seriously at YK Pao, but we are always working on demonstrating best behaviour.

As we work on these important life lessons at school, I hope that parents will remind their children not to bring valuable items such as unnecessary amounts of cash, mobile phones or other electronics, or anything else of monetary and sentimental value to school. Should there be a need for this, please contact your child’s class teacher and we will be able to make appropriate arrangements for the item.

Message from the Library

With the closure of our Scholastic Spring Book Club, I am excited to announce that we will be working with Baker Books for our Summer Book Club. Baker Books provides a wider range of a great selection, and the latest titles to catch our eager reader’s eyes. With Baker Books, all you need to do is to go to our online ”Parent Pay” account (http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2 Please see the picture below), choose books, and pay with your credit card. Please be reminded that the school doesn’t collect money, since everything should be paid online.

Your little ones should bring home a Baker Book Club catalogue these days. No worries if the catalogues are lost, because you are also able to find everything online.

No EP Classes or Late Supervision on April 24th or 25th

There will be no EP classes or late supervision on April 24th or 25th due to the Parent/Teacher Conferences as teachers will be busy meeting with parents. Please arrange transportation for your child accordingly.

Grand Prix Rehearsal and Performance

A reminder that the students involved are required to attend a rehearsal this Saturday morning. Students should meet at YK Pao at 11:50. The buses to Shanghai International Race Circuit will leave at 12:00 sharp.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

There has been a change – On Sunday morning students involved should arrive at school for 08:50 for 09:00 NOT 09:50 for 10:00:

Sunday           08:50              Singers arrive at YK Pao

                         09:00              Buses depart promptly

ALL STUDENTS MUST TAKE THE SCHOOL BUSES – STUDENTS CANNOT MAKE THEIR OWN TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE REHEARSAL NOR THE PERFORMANCE. Entry to the Race Track is by bus permit only (or valid ticket). This is true on both Saturday AND Sunday.

The Saturday rehearsal is the one and only rehearsal at the race track and so it is vital that every student is there.

  • We expect the Grand Prix to start round 15:00.
  • The first bus (for those who elected to return after 30 minutes of the race itself) will depart the track round 15:45. Depending on traffic, this should arrive back at school at perhaps 17:00-17:15
  • The second bus (for those who elected to watch the whole race) should leave round 17:30 and should get back round 19:30. For this we are expecting quite a lot of traffic

Saturday Music Programme

This will run as normal EXCEPT that there will be NO SATURDAY CHOIR this week. This is due to Mr. Dominic being involved with the rehearsal for the performance for the Shanghai Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday.

Message from PE Department

Swimming News from the East vs West Competition held at S.A.S. on Saturday 12th of April

We have not had the official results yet, but I would like to say that overall we had many new “P.B’s” (Personal Best times) and our overall score put us in the top 5 schools. When all is confirmed, we shall get back to you.

I would like to inform you that YK Pao Primary campus is the venue for the Shanghai Schools Sports Association Fencing Tournament.

Saturday 19th of April from 09:30 to 13:00

Categories – Plastic Foil Competition (for younger students)

OR Open Age Group with full equipment (You must provide your own lamee’s)

Shanghai Schools Sports Association, Volleyball Tournament held at YKPS Secondary Campus

Last Reminder of Sport for Life Sunday Football Dates:

A great start to the season for Y1 to Y4 teams. Thanks so much to the parents who braved the weather and came along on Sunday. Some amazing football played by our kids – well done!

Apologies to Year 1 parents with the buses mix up. Mr. Mike’s fault – sorry!

Week 2 Sunday Football – As the F1 will be in town this Sunday 20th of April, can we meet 10 minutes earlier at YKPS at 0850 please. The roads will be busier going to S.A.S. so that should help us.

Contact Parents: In case of bad air (over 150) or heavy rain or any other circumstances, please contact the representative for your child’s Year Group. Please do not contact before 0745 on Sunday!

One of the Coaches (usually Mr Mike) will be in contact with the Year Group representatives prior to the above time, after speaking to the football organizers.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Parents – please understand we are trying extremely hard to match the level of competition with the level of your child, hence the different age categories and levels within. There is nothing quite so dispiriting as losing all games by a large margin, neither is it a good thing for children to win every game by a large margin. Please support the coaches in encouraging your students to become excellent ambassadors for YK Pao School and better players as a result. So far your support has been invaluable and I thank you for this.

Year 1 teams is in the Under 8 “B” Division

Year 2 teams is in the Under 8 “A” Division

Two Year 3 teams is in the Under 8 “A” Division

One Year 3 team is in the Under 10 “A” Division (This will be hard work for the students, but they will gain valuable experience this year, ready for a tilt at the title next year!)

One Year 4 team is in the Under 10 “A” Division

One Year 4 team is in the Under 10 “B” Division

Newsletter 11 April 2014

各位包校集体成员,

很遗憾,我们又新增了两例水痘病例。因此,我们已在尽可能地避免隔离班的学生与其他班的学生接触。虽然这样的安排总会带来一些不便之处,但我们希望能尽快解除警报,使相关班级回复正常上课秩序。

此外,我们也非常遗憾地通知大家,Rob Miller老师延长了他的病假且无法于下周返回教学岗位,无论是学生还是与他共事的同事们都非常想念他,让我们祝愿他早日康复。

近期,陈艳校长和Michelle Ip老师正在美国加州参加有关语言学习的综合性培训,待她们学成归来后也会和大家分享自己所学。

我们的足球运动员们将于本周日在上海美国学校进行新赛季的第一场比赛,让我们祝愿他们开赛大吉。此外,我们还要感谢艺术组的Anne老师带领她的学生参加了一个变废为宝的艺术活动,他们用纸板制造了一个3D板的上海城市景观。

我们祝愿孩子们在测评周取得好成绩。虽然我们不需要学生为测评周做特别的准备,但这一周的学生出勤情况还是非常重要的。

我们非常期待即将到来的二手环保集市活动,也期待在热闹的活动现场见到您活跃的身影。

祝您周末愉快!

来自学生处的信息

包校正在为2014/15学年制定教学计划与资源,现希望与您提前确认您的孩子下一学年是否将继续在包校就读,这将有助于我们开展准备工作。

今天学生将会带回2014/15学年学位登记确认书,请所有家长、监护人或其他有监护职责的人士在签署确认书前,务必仔细阅读所有条款并准确提供所需信息。请在2014423或之前签署本确认书并交回学生处。感谢您的大力配合!

上周我们已通过邮件将F1大奖赛演出的彩排及表演的具体时间发送给了参加演出的学生家长。如果您的孩子报名参加了演出却还未收到这封邮件的话,请及时联系音乐组索取通知。

提醒:本周六我们将迎来第一次排练活动。参加演出的学生请于早上7:35分在包校集合,校车将在于7:45分准时出发前往西华国际学校,之后要到下午才能返回学校,因此我们建议家长为自己的孩子适当准备一些茶点。

我们要求报名参加此次活动的学生出席所有的排练。没有合理的理由而缺席排练的学生将不能参加这次演出。

有家长对服装问题有些困惑,在此我们想做一下说明:主办方提供活动体恤,因此学生需要自备夹克衫、蓝色牛仔裤和运动鞋。

周六音乐项目

由于Dominic老师将为4月20日的F1 大奖赛演出彩排,因此本周及下周的周六合唱团暂停,但其他周六课程都将照常进行。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Unfortunately we have another case of Chicken Pox reported. As a protocol to ensure the health of all students, the students in the affected class will not mix with other classes. We understand that this is an inconvenience to all, but we look forward to receiving the ‘all clear’ so that our school can return to normal routines.

Additionally, we are sorry to report that Mr. Rob Miller, our EU Coordinator, has been absent from school on extended sick leave. We will not be expecting him back at school next week. We know that many of the students and colleagues miss him and wish him a speedy recovery.

Mrs. Crick Chen and Ms. Michelle Ip are currently in California attending a comprehensive course on the acquisition of language. The learning from this excellent course will be shared upon their return.

Other events taking place from our Arts and Sports Department: We wish our footballers every success this weekend as the next season begins at the Shanghai American School on Sunday. A big thank you goes out to Ms. Ann Murray and some of her students and families who will be attending an art activity which involves re-creating three-dimensional interpretations of the Shanghai cityscape.

We hope all the students sleep and eat well in preparation for the upcoming assessment week and would like to remind parents that no special preparation is necessary for the assessments, but that attendance is particularly important next week.

We look forward to our Eco-Fair which is approaching on 19th April.  See you all there.

Have a good weekend.

Message on Chinese Production

It is exciting to announce that our Chinese Production, In Search of the Sound, will be performed at Malan Flower Theatre on May 14th and 15th.

This show is very close to students’ life and performed through singing and dancing, so the stage will be full of laughter, and it will arouse echoes in the audiences’ hearts. So don’t miss it! Though your child might not be part of the acting team, don’t let it stop you from taking them to enjoy the show. I believe that through this show you can better understand how great music and stage presence in presented in Chinese.

Thanks to the professional design team for presenting us two kinds of special tickets which could also be used as bookmarks. Along with the tickets, some limited edition handbags will be sold as souvenirs. We only have 200 of them, so go and have a look and don’t be hesitate to buy one if you like them or it may be too late. You can come see Ms Stella at the reception desk for the tickets and handbags. The tickets will be on sale from next Monday, April 14th. The price per ticket is 60 yuan and 50 yuan for the handbag.

We hope to see you at the show on 14th and 15th of May.

 

Chicken Pox

We have two students suffering from Chicken Pox this week. We have strengthened efforts to keep a hygienic school environment and measures have been taken by the School in an attempt to prevent the spread of the chicken pox, including a morning temperature check, disinfection of common areas, cancellation of whole-school assemblies and separating classes with confirmed cases. If you found that your child has a fever or red rashes on the face or body, please make sure to take him/her to the hospital for medical attention immediately. Please also inform their class teacher and school nurse as soon as possible.

Chicken Pox can easily be prevented through vaccination, so we strongly recommend that your child be vaccinated or revaccinated for Varicella. You can take your child to the Jiangsu Road Health Centre vaccination (which governs the area where our School is located). You will have to pay the cost of this vaccination because it is one of the Group Two vaccines under the Chinese National Immunisation Scheme. Please consult your doctor before vaccination.
* If your child has already had a Chicken Pox vaccination twice or taken the vaccine in the last five years, or your child has suffered Chicken Pox before, please do not revaccinate.

Grand Prix Rehearsal

A reminder that the students involved are required to attend a rehearsal this Saturday morning, April 12th. Students should meet at YK Pao at 07:35AM. The buses to WISS will leave at 07:45AM sharp. Any students who do not need transportation to WISS should let the Music Department know in advance if they have not done so already.

Newsletter 4 April 2014

各位包校集体成员,

本周四晚上,部分三年级的学生和家长参加了家庭数学派对活动,当晚的活动举办得非常成功。能看到孩子们与其父母亲密无间地合作、享受活动的乐趣是非常让人愉悦和欣慰的事。衷心感谢参加活动的班级合作老师和数学组的各位老师们为每个班级提供了这么好的活动机会。

今天天公作美,我们的一年级学生沐浴在春日阳光中,带着愉快的心情去了长风公园和星期八小镇春游。他们尝试并体验了不同职业都做些什么工作。孩子们玩得很开心。

大家注意近期的两个事件:

第二学期期中测评将于4月14日这一周进行,我们希望孩子们能在这周里保持全勤到校。

在这儿,我想提醒大家的是,由家校协力会主办的二手环保集市将于4月19日举行。如果您想租用摊位的话,请及时填写报名表并附上摊位费。另外,报名环保集市的截止日期已延后至4月16日。

祝您度过一个轻松愉快的长周末。

班级重组政策更新

包校本着为学生提供更多的社交结友的机会和平台,从2008年始实施班级重组政策。目前包校的班级重组政策为:孩子在一升二和三升四时会重新分班。

根据这几年的观察了解,我们不难发现孩子的确在社交、与不同人相处等技能方面有提高。事实上,通过班级重组,老师也将个别同学重新放入一个相应更适合他的班集体中,避免了个别同学间的不必要冲突。然而与此同时,我们也发现在包校学科制的体系中,孩子在五年的小学生涯中经历三次不同的集体:一年级、二年级和四年级,这对于班级集体凝聚力的建成、班级常规和孩子行为规范的持续发展有很大挑战,实为不利因素。尤其在低幼年级,若孩子在一、二年级时班集体成员有很大变化,再加之学科之间的切换和老师的换动,对于孩子而言,太多的变化,不利于常规的建立和达成。

综上所述,为了平衡班级重组带来的利弊,我们在STT教学管理团队慎重讨论后决定,自2014学年起,班级重组将仅限于三年级升四年级阶段。故未来所有孩子在小学五年内将经历两次不同的班级集体,即一年级和四年级。

中文舞台剧信息

这一周张导演因为剧院的事务不能来校排练,所以周一由薛老师带领排练了几个场景。周四的舞蹈老师加入其中,排练了戏中的舞蹈并把核心演员的戏和主要演员的场景戏串联了下。我们小演员们那认真的态度和永不言败的精神真让我很感动。

我经常看到孩子们开心的脸,沮丧的脸,生气的脸,各种表情,好不热闹。他们已经习惯了大强度的排练;在回家的车上吃晚饭;即便排练强度大也能坚持完成当天的作业;不断承受着专业导演对此戏高标准严要求的敲打,我问:“孩子,你有没有想过放弃?即便你是核心演员,但你没有一句台词?”孩子回答:“我从来没有想过放弃,虽然我心里会难受;虽然我有时会累;虽然我有时的表演会有些不好…”多么美好的语言啊?作为这个中文音乐剧的负责老师,我真的被感动了,这样的感动,随着时间的流逝,排练密度越高,离正式表演越近就越强烈,我想这才是真正热爱表演的孩子,可以为了表演付出。我要对孩子们说的是:“孩子们,你们可以坚持到最后,成为最后的胜利者。当你们回首这段排练,会发现这是多么特别而又美好的时光。我们正在成为美好记忆的缔造者…”

进入四月后,我们除了整出戏需要进行串联外,还需要在双休日召集一些学生进入专业录影棚录歌。这是个难得的机会,让我们学生可以更贴近专业电影录播,请关注我的微信群的消息,我会及时通知大家相关内容。谢谢。

注意:下周一4月6日,是清明假期,取消一次排练。但4月9日周四的排练照常进行。

拓展课后的监护

本学期拓展课开始以来,我们经常发现有个别孩子在拓展课结束后没有直接回家,而是在操场上玩耍。由于此时天色较暗,操场上也没有监管的老师,很可能发生意外伤害事故。我们希望家长在接到孩子后能及时离校。如发现有学生单独留在校园内,我们会将其带至学生处进行登记并联络家长,相关信息也会定期汇报至校长室。

来自PTA环保二手集市组委的信息
4月19日的二手集市活动日益临近了,目前各项报名、环保作品提交和活动筹备工作都在紧锣密鼓地进行中。我们了解到,有不少孩子和家庭在周末要参加体育比赛、艺术课程、音乐团体表演等其他活动因而需要时间去协调。为便于大家更好地安排时间,我们决定将原计划的报名截止时间加以延长。在4月16日(周三)之前,您可继续使用原来的报名表进行报名(已于3月18日随孩子们的家校联系册带回家)。如有还需要再次领取报名表的家庭,请在清明假期后(即下周二起)到西楼前台领取,我们会在那里为大家准备一些报名表。

后续,我们将于活动前一周开始陆续与各报名家庭进行联系和确认,更进一步的活动详情及当天注意事项也将在随后发送给大家。

再次感谢所有关心本次活动的包校家庭,以及积极加入志愿者工作和为办好活动出谋划策的众多家长朋友们,谢谢大家的参与和支持,校园活动因为有大家而更精彩!

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

作为家长和教师,我们和孩子一起经历了许多开心和烦恼的时刻。在遇到不同情况时产生不同的情绪,这对孩子来说是很正常的现象。人在愤怒的状态下很难化解所遇困难,最佳的方法是让自己在冷静和明理的状态下处理伤脑筋的事。而对于孩子来说,他们通常很难把控好自己的情绪。本周的人文关怀角里,我想跟大家分享一篇心理治疗师Amy Morin女士的文章。详细内容请见附件。

上海学校体育协会主办的击剑锦标赛

我很高兴地通知大家,包校小学部将承办由上海学校体育协会组织的击剑锦标赛。

比赛时间为418日,周六的9:30-13:00

比赛类别-塑料花剑比赛(适合低年龄孩童)

或使用完全装备的混合年龄组(参赛选手必须自带击剑金属服)

学生在签署一份参赛同意书后方能参加此次比赛。 (请将比赛申请交予小学部Mike老师或中学部Ben老师)

作为主办学校,我们会为参赛选手提供电子重剑、积分装置和面罩。所有对抗赛都将在为此次比赛而准备的击剑道上进行。参赛者需准备自己的击剑金属服,但请家长们不要在装备花费上进行攀比。

Sport for Life 周日足球赛比赛日期提醒,我们将于下周进行本学期的第一场比赛:

第一周 – 4月13日

第二周 – 4月20日

第三周 – 5月11日

第四周 – 5月18日

第五周 – 5月25日

第六周 – 6月8日

请各位家长理解,根据孩子的年龄和竞技状态,我们在努力为之安排合适的比赛。因为各项差距过大而致使孩子总是以大比分输球或赢球都是不利于孩子成长和提高的,因此我们把不同年龄和水平的球员混编入相应的比赛队伍,具体如下。希望家长能支持教练们的安排并一如既往地支持我们的孩子们,让他们成长为更优秀的小运动员。在此,我们要再次感谢您对我们的支持,您的鼓励是孩子们最宝贵的财富,也将是他们不断前进的动力。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Congratulations to the students and parents from Year 3 who enjoyed the Family Maths evening on Thursday. It is always wonderful for us to see students and parents working closely together with such obvious enjoyment. My sincere thanks to all of the teachers and the Maths Department who have facilitated this opportunity for every class during the year.

Year 1 had a wonderful excursion today to Chang Feng Park and Eday Town. The students had the chance to try their hand at a range of jobs and a lot of fun and learning was experienced by all. The weather was also perfect for them with sun and blue sky all day!

I would like to draw your attention to two upcoming events. Our mid-term assessments commence during the week of April 14th and we would particularly request uniterupted attendance.

I would also like to remind you of the Eco-Fair which is being being organised by the PTA on 19th April. Do please let us know if you wish to hire a booth and note that the deadline has been extended.

We wish you an enjoyable long weekend.

Updated Class Blending Policy

Since 2008, YK Pao School implemented the class blending policy in order to provide more social opportunities and platforms for the students. At present, YK Pao School’s class blending policy is to reallocate students when they are grading up from Year One to Year Two, and Year Three to Year Four.

According to these two year level observations, we found that students have improved their social and interactive skills. In fact, teachers can reallocate certain students into more suitable class groups through class blending; this can help to avoid unnecessary conflicts between some students. Meanwhile, we also found that in the subjected based system of YK Pao School, students will experience three different groups during their five-year primary school study: Year one, Year two and Year Four. This is very challenging and will arouse negative factors in class cohesion building and the continuous development of class rules and student behavior standards. Especially in lower grades, if the children experience a large class group change from in Year One or Year Two, plus subject changes and teacher adjustment- too many changes for the students will go against the routine building.

In conclusion, in order to balance the pros and cons of class blending, after STT’s careful discussion, we decided that from the 2014 school year, class blending is only for the students who grade up from the Year Three to Year Four period. Therefore, all the students will experience only two different class blending groups (Year 1 and Year 4).

Message on Chinese Production

This Monday, as Ms Zhang, the Production Director has a lot of work to do at the theatre where she works, Ms Xue took the leading role and guided students to rehearse several scenes. And then on Thursday, the dance teacher watched students dance and connected a couple of scenes for the core actors and main actors. The conscientious and ‘never give up’ attitude that our students are showing is very impressive and touching.

I’ve been seeing our students experience various feelings. You can tell from their facial expressions that they are happy, frustrated or upset. Now they are used to intensity rehearsals, having dinner in the car on their way back home, finishing homework after the exhausting rehearsals and continuing to try to reach the high standards requested from a professional director regarding acting. I once asked a child, ‘Have you ever thought about giving up? Even if you are not a core actor or don’t have much script?’  That child replied, ‘I never think about giving up, though sometimes it was tough, I felt tired or my acting was not good enough.’ How wonderful our children are! As the teacher who is in charge of the production, I am deeply moved. This feeling grows stronger as the time ticks away, as the rehearsal schedule tightened up, and we get closer to the big day. I think this is what we want our children to gain through the process, we want them to make efforts and try their best for what they love. What I want to say to our children is, ‘Keep it up and you will be true victors! When we look back after all, you will see how special and wonder this period of time is, and we are the ones who make these memories!’

Moving into April, expect integrating all scenes into one play, we will also call on a group of students to record songs in a professional studio. We think this could be a great opportunity for our students to have a close look at professional film recording. I will share more information through WeChat later.

Please note that next Monday’s rehearsal has been canceled due to Qing Ming Festival, but the one on Thursday will carry on as usual.

Supervision after EP

Since EP classes have begun, we have found some students playing on the football pitch instead of going home directly after classes. At that time, it is rather dark outside with no teacher to supervise, so there is a greater chance that accidents could occur. Parents should pick up their children and leave the school on time. If students are found playing without a custodian’s supervision, they will be led to SAO office where their names will be recorded and their parents will be contacted. In addition, SAO will periodically report all related information to the principal’s office.

 Message from PTA Eco Fair Committee
Our event on April 19th is approaching. The progress of enrolment, submitting eco work and all preparations are ongoing as scheduled. Recently we recognised that there are a few children and families that need to reschedule their time for additional sport competitions, art programs, and music group performances on weekends which they attend regularly. In order to help every family to arrange time well, we have decided to extend the deadline to April 16th Wednesday. You can continue to use the original enrolment form which was sent out on March 18th with the children’s homework diary, to register with us. If you require another enrolment form, please come to the reception desk in the West Building from next Tuesday after the Qing Ming holiday. We will prepare more enrolment forms there.

We will contact and confirm with all families enrolled within the week before the event. Further details and the matters needing attention will also be sent to you shortly.

Thanks again to all YK Pao families and parents for your involvement and support. Our school activities will be more wonderful with your participation!

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

As parents and teachers, we get to see the good times and the bad times with kids. It is normal for kids to have many different emotions when dealing with different situations. Some of the most difficult moments for anyone are when we are feeling angry. It’s always best to handle difficult times like this when we are calm and reasonable. For children, it is often difficult to manage these times. In this week’s Pastoral Care Corner, I have offered an article by psychotherapist, Amy Morin. Please check the attachment for more details.

Newsletter 28 March 2014

各位包校集体成员,

在丰富多彩的书籍周活动中,包校师生度过了愉快的一周。畅游在文学的海洋总能让人受益匪浅。我曾在多所学校工作,但从未见过哪所学校像包校这样富有浓厚的书卷气息。今天是开卷助人活动完美收官的日子,关于本次捐助的详细情况,请查看校长来信后面部分的内容。本次活动得到了包校集体方方面面的大力支持,感谢所有集体成员为此义举所作的贡献。

此外,本周中、英文图书的销售情况也是异常火爆。承办此次售书活动的图书进出口代理公司将销售额的10%赠予学校用于扩充校图书馆的藏书量。

当然,相比钱财,更为重要的是促进孩子们的语言学习和培养其对文学作品的热爱。今天的趣味装扮活动是书籍周活动的高潮,孩子们借着这个机会向他人介绍自己装扮的角色以及这个人物是来自哪本书的。本周,大多数孩子浸润在浓浓的书香氛围之中,而孩子们的互动表现也是可圈可点的。本周,来访包校的两位作家也借着书籍周的活动让孩子们对写作过程有了更深刻的理解。

我要感谢图书馆老师和英语组的教师团队,是他们的付出与合作让孩子们体验了一次趣味十足、充满活力的书籍周活动。此外,我要特别感谢Jon Banks老师,作为书籍周活动的总指挥,他不仅让孩子们有了一次美好的经历,同时也让所有的包校员工都积极参与到了本周的活动。

本周二,近70位校长参观访问了包校的中、小学部。上午他们在小学部参观、进课堂听课;下午他们去了中学部聆听介绍与汇报。整个参观访问活动非常成功,访客们也给予我们很高的评价。

最后,我们要欢迎包校的老朋友,来自英国的Christopher Stuart-Clark先生,他是包校的顾问校长。此行,他将进课堂听课并对包校的教学及行政管理进行评估,

毋庸置疑,如你所见,我们又度过了忙碌而充实的一周!

 

2014年度家长调研

家长的意见和建议对学校是非常重要的。我们感谢也重视您给学校的反馈意见,以期不断提高我们的教育质量,最终使所有孩子受惠。

您可通过以下链接查看2014年度的在线调查问卷:https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3PJQB36

该调研能帮助校方更好地了解您对学校学习环境的看法和意见。我们通过调研为学校集体成员间的沟通提供平台,而收集来的信息也将有助于我们把学校创建成为更佳的学习场所。

请各位家长于4月4日前完成此在线调查问卷的填写。谢谢。

班级重组政策更新

包校本着为学生提供更多的社交结友的机会和平台,从2008年始实施班级重组政策。目前包校的班级重组政策为:孩子在一升二和三升四时会重新分班。

根据这几年的观察了解,我们不难发现孩子的确在社交、与不同人相处等技能方面有提高。事实上,通过班级重组,老师也将个别同学重新放入一个相应更适合他的班集体中,避免了个别同学间的不必要冲突。然而与此同时,我们也发现在包校学科制的体系中,孩子在五年的小学生涯中经历三次不同的集体:一年级、二年级和四年级,这对于班级集体凝聚力的建成、班级常规和孩子行为规范的持续发展有很大挑战,实为不利因素。尤其在低幼年级,若孩子在一、二年级时班集体成员有很大变化,再加之学科之间的切换和老师的换动,对于孩子而言,太多的变化,不利于常规的建立和达成。

综上所述,为了平衡班级重组带来的利弊,我们在STT教学管理团队慎重讨论后决定,自2014学年起,班级重组将仅限于三年级升四年级阶段。故未来所有孩子在小学五年内将经历两次不同的班级集体,即一年级和四年级。

开卷助人项目

今天是书籍周的最后一天,也是“开卷助人”活动最激动人心的一天。通过包校学生的共同努力,今年我们几乎将去年的捐款总额翻了一翻。包校小学部的学生一共筹得善款129414.95元,阅读了5477个单元的书籍(1个单元=50页)。

今年的小母牛项目探访活动将于5月16-18日前往安徽休宁县项目点,将由10名学生,3名家长和3名老师作为包玉刚实验学校小学部的代表参与此次活动。这是一个培养同学们对贫困弱势群体的关爱之心和社会责任感的绝好机会。

谢谢您和您的家人参与2014年度的“开卷助人”活动!

 

一年级出游

在一片浓浓的春意里,全体一年级学生将在下周五开展春游活动啦!由于中山公园翻修过后拆除了部分游乐设施,所以我们将改变计划前往长风公园和“星期八小镇”活动。相信孩子们一定会度过非常难忘而愉快的一天!

水痘

春秋季是水痘的好发季节,之前2位患水痘的学生已经康复返校,但本周我们又有了一例新发水痘。学校已经采取了相关的消毒、隔离等预防措施。水痘疫苗是预防水痘的有效手段,我们强烈建议您的孩子接种或复种该疫苗,您可带孩子到学校所在的社区卫生服务中心接种该疫苗。此疫苗属于第二类疫苗,疫苗的费用需由自己承担。接种前请咨询您的医生。

* 如果您的孩子已经患过水痘或该疫苗接种已满2针或5年内已接种过该疫苗,请不要重复接种。

中文舞台剧信息

这一周,我们的舞台剧的内容已经落定,张导正在把所有零散片段和孩子们串联起来。我们的孩子在表演的时候,因为太想演好而表现得非常紧张,反倒找不到自然的状态了。请同学们尽量在生活中体验角色,放弃包袱,自然地去诠释人物性格。如果在排练过程中遇到困难,请同学们千万不要放弃,要坚持下去哦!

从本周四开始,我们会串联整个剧情并请舞蹈老师仔细地帮学生把握好舞蹈动作。完整的排练时间已经只剩下一个月了,希望同学们在家里好好练习歌曲和舞蹈。继续加油吧!

拓展课后的监护

本学期拓展课开始以来,我们经常发现有个别孩子在拓展课结束后没有直接回家,而是在操场上玩耍。由于此时天色较暗,操场上也没有监管的老师,很可能发生意外伤害事故。我们希望家长在接到孩子后能及时离校。如发现有学生单独留在校园内,我们会将其带至学生处进行登记并联络家长,相关信息也会定期汇报至校长室。

温馨提示:我们将每两周在人文关怀角中分享一次相关文章或信息,敬请期待下周的分享内容。

322日举行的11岁以下年龄段女篮球锦标赛结果

上周六,我校11岁以下年龄段的篮球队队员们在上海中学国际部参加了由上海学校体育协会组织的篮球锦标赛。从小组赛中脱颖而出后,在决赛中我们遇上了两届冠军得主-上海中学国际部的篮球队。经过一番苦战,上海中学最终险胜夺冠。虽屈居亚军,但我们仍要祝贺James老师和由他执教的这支球队,孩子们通过自己的努力不仅为大家呈现了一场精彩的比赛,更展现出了包校学生的风采。

323日与德威英国国际学校的足球比赛

包校的一-四年级足球队于上周日与主场作战的德威英国国际学校的球队进行了比赛。48名学生代表包校参加了比赛。在此,我们要感谢随行家长对孩子们的鼓励,是你们始终如一的支持给予了孩子们力量,让他们一举拿下4场比赛中的3场胜利。

Sport for Life 周日足球赛比赛日期提醒:

第一周 – 4月13日

第二周 – 4月20日

第三周 – 5月11日

第四周 – 5月18日

第五周 – 5月25日

第六周 – 6月8日

请各位家长理解,根据孩子的年龄和竞技状态,我们也在努力为之安排合适的比赛。因为各项差距过大而致使孩子总是以大比分输球或赢球是不利于孩子成长和提高的,因此我们把不同年龄和水平的球员混编入相应的比赛队伍,具体如下。希望家长能支持教练们的安排并一如既往地支持我们的孩子们,让他们成长为更优秀的小运动员。在此,我们要再次感谢您对我们的支持,您的鼓励是孩子们最宝贵的财富,也将是他们不断前进的动力。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had an extremely enjoyable week. The focus on books and literature has been wonderful. I have seldom experienced a school with such a rich and diverse reading culture. The Read to Feed programme culminated today with a quite outstanding total raised.  Please see the announcement below for further details. The support for the programme has been remarkable from all angles. Our thanks to all members of the community for this.

The Chinese and English book sales were also remarkable. The school receives a 10% contribution of the total sales which will help us improve our library stock.

Far more important than money, however, has been the focus on language learning and the development of a love for literature. The dress-up day today was wonderful and students were able to talk about their characters and the books from which they came. Most students have been armed with books all week and the conversations have been marvellous. Our two visiting authors were wonderful and gave great insight into the writing process.

My thanks to the library and English teams which have overseen an exciting and vibrant week. A special mention goes to Jon Banks, who has overseen the Book Week programme and enabled all staff to engage fully.

In addition, we have been delighted to welcome a series of visitors this week. Nearly 70 Principals from Chinese Schools were able to spend the morning at the Primary Division and the afternoon at Songjiang on Tuesday. Their feedback was extremely gratifying.

We also welcomed our friend, Christopher Stuart-Clark, our advisory partner from the UK to spend time in classrooms and helping us to appraise elements of our programme.

Needless to say, it has been a very busy week.

2014 Annual Parent Survey

Your views about the school are important to us. We appreciate and value all feedback so that we can continue to improve the quality of education which we provide for your child(ren).

Please complete the 2014 Annual Parent Survey which can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3PJQB36

The survey helps us understand your views on our learning environment. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, April 4th.

Updated Class Blending Policy

Since 2008, YK Pao School implemented the class blending policy in order to provide more social opportunities and platforms for the students. At present, YK Pao School’s class blending policy is to reallocate students when they are grading up from Year One to Year Two, and Year Three to Year Four.

According to these two year level observations, we found that students have improved their social and interactive skills. In fact, teachers can reallocate certain students into more suitable class groups through class blending; this can help to avoid unnecessary conflicts between some students. Meanwhile, we also found that in the subjected based system of YK Pao School, students will experience three different groups during their five-year primary school study: Year one, Year two and Year Four. This is very challenging and will arouse negative factors in class cohesion building and the continuous development of class rules and student behavior standards. Especially in lower grades, if the children experience a large class group change from in Year One or Year Two, plus subject changes and teacher adjustment- too many changes for the students will go against the routine building.

In conclusion, in order to balance the pros and cons of class blending, after STT’s careful discussion, we decided that from the 2014 school year, class blending is only for the students who grade up from the Year Three to Year Four period. Therefore, all the students will experience only two different class blending groups (Year 1 and Year 4).

Read to Feed Programme

Today is the last day of Book Week and a very exciting day for the Read to Feed programme. Through every student’s effort, we have almost doubled the record of last year. Students of YK Pao primary division have donated RMB129414.95 and read 5477 units in four weeks. One unit equals 50 pages.

The outstanding reading and fundraising class award goes to:
Y1D, Y2A, Y2B, Y3A, Y3C, Y4B, Y5A

The full participation class award goes to:
Y1A, Y1B, Y1C, Y1D

The outstanding reader and fundraiser award goes to:
Y1B Enoch Huang 黄一诺
Y1D Serene Sun 孙思远
Y2A Yaya Huang 黄丫丫
Y2B Elina Lin 林奕宣
Y3A Kiera Lin 林思颐
Y3B Louise He 何乐仪
Y4A Micah Hoang 黄麦加
Y5A Sophia Wu 吴乙榛
Y5C Tyler Loh 卢欣逸

This year, the project visit will be to Xiuning County in Anhui Province from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th of May. Ten students, three parents, and three teachers will represent YK Pao School Primary Division on the visit. This is a good opportunity to develop in our students a sense of community and responsibility to others who, through no fault of their own, are less fortunate than themselves.

Thank you for you and your family’s participation in Read to Feed Programme 2014.

Y1 Excursion

As scheduled, to take a deep breath of spring, all Y1 students are going on an excursion next Friday. We intended to visit Zhong Shan Park, however, as some of the facilities have been cleared out after the Park has done its renovation, we will take our Y1 to Changfeng Park and Shanghai edaytown instead. We are sure our students will have fun and enjoy the day there!

Message on Chinese Production

Another week has passed, with the help of the Production Director, all the pieces of the story have been integrated along with the students. When rehearsing, we noticed that our actors got very nervous under the pressure of their passionate desire. Here we suggest students act out the role naturally based on their understanding. If there are any difficulties during, don’t get frustrated or give up. Just keep it up!

As we’ve formed a complete story, the dance teacher will work with students to master their dance piece starting from this Thursday, There’s only one month left to rehearse, hope that all actors can practice singing and dance at home actively. Keep working on it!

Chicken Pox

Chicken Pox occurs throughout the year but Spring and Autumn are the peak seasons for this disease. The students have been recovered and back to school who suffering from Chicken Pox, but we have a new case in this week. We have strengthened efforts to keep a hygienic school environment. Chicken Pox can be easily prevented through vaccination, so we strongly suggest your child to be vaccinated or revaccinated. You can take your child to the Jiangsu Road Health Centre vaccination (which governs the area where our School is located). You will have to pay the cost of this vaccination because it is one of the Group Two vaccines under the Chinese National Immunisation Scheme. Please consult your doctor before vaccination.

* If your child has already had a Chicken Pox vaccination twice or taken the vaccine in the last five years, or your child has suffered Chicken Pox before, please do not revaccinate.

The Jiangsu Road Health Center

Address: Shanghai 320 Wuyi Road (near Dingxi Road)

Time: Monday-Saturday   8am-11am

Telephone:  62128666 – 822

Supervision after EP

Since EP classes have begun, we have found some students playing on the football pitch instead of going home directly after classes. At that time, it is rather dark outside with no teacher to supervise, so there is a greater chance that accidents could occur. Parents should pick up their children and leave the school on time. If students are found playing without a custodian’s supervision, they will be led to SAO office where their names will be recorded and their parents will be contacted. In addition, SAO will periodically report all related information to the principal’s office.

Result from the Under 11 SSSA Basketball Championship 22nd of March

Our Under 11 Basketball Team went to SHSID on Saturday to compete in the Shanghai Schools Sports Association Tournament. After winning through the group stages, we were pitted against two-times champions SHSID who narrowly won the final.

Week 1 – April 13th

Week 2 – April 20th

Parents – please understand we are trying extremely hard to match the level of competition with the level of your child, hence the different age categories and levels within. There is nothing quite so dispiriting as losing all games by a large margin, neither is it a good thing for children to win every game by a large margin. Please support the coaches in encouraging your students to become excellent ambassadors for YK Pao School and better players as a result. So far your support has been invaluable and I thank you for this.

Newsletter 21 March 2014

各位包校集体成员,

精彩纷呈的一周又要过去啦!

本周,小学部的各类活动安排得非常充实。五年级的学生参观了航空博物馆,很多孩子在模拟器上体验了一把驾驶直升飞机的乐趣。来自香港的作家Sarah Brennan和孩子们热情互动并为包校的家长们组织了一场工作坊活动。

上周六,我们女子足球队第三次捧回了上海学校体育协会主办的女子足球锦标赛的冠军奖杯!数学组的信息会已于本周一晚召开。在这即将过去的一周里,学校高层团队也在紧锣密鼓地与一年级新生家庭逐个会面。 本周四,香港各大新闻媒体的主编们来校参观,我们的弦乐团和四年级的孩子们用他们出色的表现表明了自己就是包校最好的形象代言人。

除此以外,学校的部分中高层也受邀前往江苏省吴江市的太湖大学堂参观访问。两校就教育理念和中文教学进行了交流。专注于繁忙的校务工作往往容易让我们忽略很多学校也都面临着相同的挑战,而能拥有交流和分享各自想法、观点和策略的机会对大家相互学习和提高是极富意义和价值的。

下周二,近50位来自上海和北京的校长们将访问包校。他们此行的目的主要是考察包校的课程设置、全人教育项目以及学生的学习情况。他们会走访中、小学部两个校区来进行全面考察。类似的大规模考察给予了我们客观反思现行工作的机会,相信我们也可以从此次接待的过程中有所收获和成长。

在这春暖花开的季节,我祝您和您的家人能共度一个惬意的周末,同时,也让我们一起预祝参加周末体育和音乐活动的孩子们度过一个安全愉快的双休日。

中文舞台剧信息

本周,我们继续在推进剧情,同学们认真地听着导演叙述的故事,心情随着人物角色情节而跌宕起伏。“什么?失聪?林小耳失聪了?”,“什么是失聪?”,“三个月过去了,林小耳怎么还没有来呢?”“他到底什么时候可以来?我们可以做些什么呢?”在同学中,引发了讨论。

在学校的排练中,同学们每次都要历经一整天的上课后,还要持续两个小时的排练,非常非常辛苦。有的孩子带病排练;还有的孩子,因为家离学校很远,所以排练后,为了不影响做作业和第二天的学习,晚上住在宾馆里,却一点怨言也没有。就为了这些付出,我要代表全体中文舞台剧剧组的成员向学生和家长们表示深深的谢意。

春天是一个冷暖交替的时节,在学习和排练高强度的环境下,希望孩子们回家后可以多多休息,注意保暖。我们中文舞台剧可不能少了你。

 

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

天气渐渐转暖,又到了出游的好时节。家庭出游是加深情感、强化性格的最好方法。本周的人文关怀角我查找了一些本城最受欢迎的家庭出游地点。大家可以参考一下,来策划一个让孩子记忆深刻的家庭游,同时也给孩子们一个在班会上分享出游经历的机会。详细内容请见附件。

滴眼液 

正如您所知道的,我校设有游泳课,按照上海市卫生监督所规定,为了预防角膜炎等眼部疾患,每次游泳课结束后,学校须给每位游泳者使用利巴韦林滴眼液。该眼液是由卫监所指定,上海信谊药厂生产制造。

水痘

很高兴本周学校没有新增的水痘病例。从下周起学校将恢复常规运作。

2014315日国际学校教育展

上周六3月15日,我校参加了在浦东嘉里中心举办的国际学校教育展,共有4位老师及行政人员参加了展会。该展会由Shanghai Family主办,共有38所上海的国际及双语学校参展。我校展台前人头攒动,家长们对包校展现出了浓厚的兴趣。展会期间我校共收到300多位家长的入学咨询及活动预约。

周六音乐项目——学习新乐器的机会来了!

我们很高兴的告诉大家,周六音乐项目的队伍壮大了,我们新增了钢琴的一对一课程。此外,中提琴私教课还剩一个名额。

从本周起周六合唱团的排练场地将从礼堂转移到东楼2317教室(Dominic老师的教室)。

我们新开了小号的私教课来丰富平日的EP课程,以后还将有机会开设打击乐器的课程和打鼓课。Al老师同时教授小号以及打击乐器的课程。课程安排上我们会优先保证想要学习小号的学生,因为我们想要拓展学习铜管乐器的人数。

报名分配流程——初拟的报名截止日为3月26日 周三。所有的想要学习铜管乐器的学生都将以“先到先得”的原则分配。如果有多余的课时我们会让Al老师上打击乐器的课程和打鼓课。之后如仍有报班名额,我们会根据实际情况进行分配。

如果您的孩子有意愿学习以下任何一种乐器,请发邮件联系高老师:corie.gao@ykpaoschool.cn:-

小号、中提琴、爵士鼓、钢琴。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had a wonderful week!

Some of the events that have occurred this week include a Year 5 trip to the Aerospace Museum. Many students had the opportunity to have a go on a simulator and flew helicopters!

A visiting author, Sarah Brennan from Hong Kong has spent time with some year groups and held one parent workshop.

We have had a Maths information evening for parents which was held on Monday.

Our girls football team won the Shanghai Schools tournament last Saturday to retain their title for the third consecutive year! 

We have met many of next year’s new Year 1 cohort following interviews with students and families. 

Our String Ensemble and Year 4 students did us proud on Thursday when we hosted a visit from a group of Chief Editors from a variety of Hong Kong media companies.

In addition, a number of us were able to visit the Taihu School in Jiangsu Province to share perspectives on values education and the teaching of Chinese. Schools are such busy places that we often forget that others are facing similar challenges. The opportunity to share ideas, strategies and perspectives is so valuable!

Next Tuesday, we are hosting nearly 50 school principals from Shanghai and further afield. They will come to investigate our curriculum and whole child development and see students working. They will visit both the Changning and Songjiang campus. Such events really encourage us to reflect objectively on what we do, so the learning for all of us is extremely useful.

Wishing you a relaxing and restful weekend as we officially enter the Spring season and wishing our sports teams and musicians good luck with their weekend activities.

Message on Chinese Production

This week, our students got the chance to listen to the story read by the Production Director during their rehearsals. With the story moving forward, our young actors experienced vicariously the dramatic feelings of their roles. ‘What? Being deaf? Lin xiao’er is deaf?’, ‘What do you mean by being deaf?’, ‘Three months have passed, how come Lin Xiao’er hasn’t come back yet?’, ‘When is he coming back? What can we do for him?’. A thousand and one questions sprung up among them.

It took a lot of commitment for a student to continue a two-hour rehearsal after a normal school day. Some children insisted to continue rehearsing in spite of illness, and there are also some students who live far away from the school stayed in a hotel over the night without moaning just to avoid any negative impacts on their regular learning. On behalf of the production crews, I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all parents and students for your sacrifice and support.

The temperature changes rapidly in this season, we would like our children to take care of themselves and get enough rest despite the normal school life and intensive rehearsals.  Remember that every single one of you is precious and important to us.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

The weather is getting warmer and it’s time to head outside again. Family outings are one of the best ways to strengthen bonds and character. For this week’s Pastoral Care Corner I have looked up some favourite family amusement places around town. Please have a look and make a family adventure that will last in your child’s memories and give them a chance to share in Circle Time. Please check the attachment for more details.

Result from the Under 11 SSSA Girls Football Championship 15th of March

Our Under 11 Years Girls Football Team went to WISS on Saturday to compete in the Shanghai Schools Sports Association Tournament. After winning groups stage matches, the girls made it through to semi finals and then after winning on penalties against Shanghai United International School, Pudong, the girls repeated the achievement in the final where they defeated Western International School. Congratulations to Mr Toby who coached the girls and to the students themselves who put up a magnificent show not just in terms of ability, but as excellent ambassadors for YK Pao School.

This Weekend sees the SSSA Basketball Tournament at Shanghai High School on Saturday morning. We wish our basketballers all the best of luck.
