Newsletter 17 April 2015

各位包校集体成员,

今天一年级主持的以“仁”为主题的集会真是棒极了!感谢我们的孩子们,通过他们的演讲和展示,我们对于这个主题有了更清晰的理解。无论你是6岁还是56岁,也无论你是孩子或是成人,做到信守承诺、说到做到并在人前人后都保持一致的行为是非常重要的。

本周,我们接受了上海教委的年检。一如既往,我们收到了积极正面的反馈信息以及有待改进方面的建议。但非常明确的一点是,年检人员感到我们在去年的基础上有了非常不错的提升和进步。

与此同时,孩子们也度过了忙碌的一周。英语拼写竞赛非常有激励性,而我们的孩子们再一次展示了自己刻苦勤奋的学习劲道。让我们祝贺所有参加该活动的学生们。

我们正在为明天的环保集市积极准备着。相信在家校协力会及二年级家长的组织和协调下,明天的活动一定会大获成功。如果您有兴趣参加,就让我们明天见吧!整场活动将于上午9点开始,下午2点结束。

很高兴见到这么多家长前来支持包校的品格教育及阅读项目。衷心感谢所有支持活动的家长们,你们的付出将使孩子投射出更积极的变化。

最后,我们要祝贺包校的部分家长和老师,他们完成了“爱与逻辑”第一期的培训。该课程主要强化实用性技能以帮助家长培养出懂得尊重他人、认真负责、体贴周道又善于做决定的孩子。五月假期后,我们将再次提供培训机会。

祝大家周末愉快!更要祝我们的排球队员们好运。

The 6th Eco Fair

自我管理的能力

最近,我们留意到学生忘带东西的事情常有发生,从课本到拖鞋,忘记的物品也比较杂乱,因此阿姨、司机、家里的长辈们常常要再将这些东西送来学校。我们的保安和行政老师也被要求把东西第一时间送到学生手里,但由于学生信息和班级分流的多样化情况,对他们来说这项任务是比较困难的,同时,此类的“快递”工作也并非是他们的工作职责。

家长们可以抓住孩子忘带东西的这个机会,帮助他们反思并制定有效的计划来避免此类事件再次发生。家长可以尝试让孩子根据课表和家庭日志上的要求自己整理书包。我们希望家长们能帮助孩子学会自我管理,而不是做一个高效的快递。我们想提醒家长的是教育需要校方和家长双方面努力的,而您的理解和配合在孩子成长过程中会起到关键作用,让我们共同努力真正地帮助孩子改变他们的现状。感谢您的理解与支持。

来自图书馆的信息

亲爱的家长,

随着五一假期的临近,我相信大家都已经计划了丰富的假期活动或是旅行。许多家长正在为孩子假期中的阅读进度而担忧。幸运的是,科技让阅读变得更容易。有声读物让我们在旅途中可以随时聆听故事,而丰富多彩的在线电子书更是让我们欲罢不能。在假期前,图书馆特别更新了我们的有声读物,详情请见http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/audiobook。如果您对我最新的有声读物感兴趣,赶快行动吧!对于喜爱彩图的小读者们,我们的在线电子书图书馆TumbleBookshttp://www.tumblebooklibrary.com是个非常不错的选择。

为了使包校成员在不久的将来能够更加便捷地使用和查询包校图书馆资源,从去年开始,图书馆团队和学校IT团队已经开始着手图书馆系统升级更换的工作,目前此项工作已经进入最后一个阶段,我们正在将庞大的书目数据转换到新系统中,这是一个巨大的工程,我们需要大家的鼎力相助。我们将招募1-2名家长志愿者在五月和六月期间加入我们的图书馆团队。如果您没有加入学校的其他志愿者项目,并且热爱在充满书的环境中工作,请联系我eleanor.chen@ykpaoschool.cn

周末愉快!

The Night of Italian Opera Arias

亲子育儿班

第一次的育儿课程进行得非常成功,课程中很好地平衡了讲座、讨论、案例分析和角色扮演等内容。参与的家长都表示这个课程非常“实用、清晰,并且充满了乐趣”。由于本次课程非常受欢迎,因此我们决定在本学期末前再组织一轮该课程的培训。

“通过爱与逻辑教育孩子”是由爱与逻辑培训机构开设的一个包含六个课时的育儿课程,旨在帮助父母在抚养子女碰到困难时找到合理的解答及合适的应对措施。此外,该课程还着重强调了包校提倡培养的两项品格特质即责任与尊重。课程所介绍的育儿技巧简单又有效,无论是对牙牙学语的孩童还是青少年都将会有不小的帮助。

该课程将于2015年5月5日-6月9日举行。上课地点设在包校小学部西楼的会议室,上课时间为每周二的16:00-18:00,每节课2小时。

上海关怀心理咨询中心的专业家庭咨询师黄晓楠女士将担任此次课程的讲师。比较遗憾的是,本次课程所用资料和练习册只有英语版,期望在以后的培训中能使用到翻译成中文的资料和练习册。不过,黄女士可用双语作答。每位成员都可在课程开始前领取一本练习册,完成课程后也将获得一张证书。

目前,本次课程还有18个上课名额。本次课程的费用为人民币1200元,其中包括6节2小时的课程、一本练习册和一张证书。报名遵循先到先得的原则,其余后报名的人员将依序列入等候名单,如有人取消报名即可获得参加培训的机会。我们认为这是一个非常有意义的课程,我们也希望下一学年可以提供更多的相关培训机会。

如果您对此课程有兴趣,请联系上海关怀心理咨询中心的陈韦驰老师注册报名。联系电话:021-62708252、60391880。上海关怀心理咨询中心将负责登记报名并收取课程费用。待上海关怀心理咨询中心确认收到报名款项后即注册成功。您也可以联系Shane Vey老师(shane.vey@ykpaoschool.cn)或Diana Zuo老师(diana.zuo@ykpaoschool.cn)了解更多有关该课程的信息。附件里是课程大纲,供您参阅。

祝贺

祝贺我们的11岁以下年龄段球队在上周末的上海学校体育联盟比赛中取得优秀成绩。参加决赛的两支队伍得分非常相近,最终包校足球队以微弱劣势惜居亚军。队员们输了比赛,却不失风度,他们对冠军表现出了极大的尊重。我们不仅为他们在赛场上的表现感到骄傲,更为他们立身处世的方式感到自豪。感谢家长们的支持!

祝好运

祝愿我校3支排球队于本周六在松江举行的由上海学校体育协会组织的锦标赛中取得好成绩。包校有许多女生将参加本次比赛,而排球运动也在包校逐渐变成了广受欢迎的运动项目。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

What a wonderful Year 1 Assembly we had today; the theme was “Integrity”. Congratulations to the students who gave us all some very clear lessons to take away. Whether we are 6 years old or 56 years old, whether we are children or adults, it is important to ‘ do what you say you are going to do’, ‘keep your promises’ and ‘do the right thing even when people are not watching you’!

This week we were inspected by the Shanghai Education Commission. It is always re-assuring to receive positive feedback and whilst there are always areas to improve, it is clear that they felt the school was making good progress.

The children have been ‘buzzing’ this week. The Spelling Bee competition has been highly motivating and our students have demonstrated, once again, their hard work and diligence. Congratulations to everyone who took part.

We are gearing up for tomorrow’s Eco Fair. It promises to be a wonderful event which is being coordinated by the PTA and our Year 2 parents. If you wish to come, it will be great to see you between 9a.m. and 2 p.m. tomorrow!

It has been wonderful meeting so many parents supporting our Character Education and Reading Programmes this week. Our sincere thanks to all who are supporting these wonderful initiatives. They make such a difference to students!

Congratulations to those parents and YK Pao School teachers in the photograph below who have just completed our first “Love and Logic” programme, which emphasizes the practical skills that help parents raise children who are respectful, responsible and thoughtful decision makers. This course is being offered again after the May holiday.

Message from the Eco Fair Committee

The Eco Fair will take place tomorrow at 9:00-14:00. Please kindly check the attached file for more detailed information about the arrangement.

The 6th Eco Fair

Self Management

We have noticed that some students often forget to bring School items, from textbooks to flip-flops, that they will need that day. Ayis, drivers or grandparents then deliver their items to school and security and admin staff are asked to pass them to students in time for their lesson. It is difficult for these staff members as they are not familiar with class schedules, especially stream classes and it will take time to have related teachers to get these things for the students, nor is it fair to expect them to deal with delivery work that is not part of their job responsibilities.

Parents can take this opportunity to improve their child’s self-management skills by assisting them in planning the packing of their own schoolbag according to the daily timetable and requests noted in the homework diary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Message from the Library

Dear Parents,

With the approaching of May holiday, I believe tons of fun activities or trips are planned for you and your family. Many parents worry about continuing to support their child’s reading progress during holidays. Luckily, technologies have made reading easier. Audiobooks allow us to listen to stories during traffic, while unlimited online eBooks take readers from one book after another. We’ve recently added new titles to our audiobook collection for your family holiday. (http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/audiobook) Act fast before the goodies are gone! For young visual readers, our online eBook Library, TumbleBooks (http://www.tumblebooklibrary.com ), is the one you are looking for!

To provide the YK Pao Community better access to our Library resources in the near future, both the Library Team and the ICT Team have been working on upgrading our Library system since last year, and we’ve finally reached the final stage. We are currently transferring our vast collection to the new system, and we need your help. We are looking for 1-2 parents to join the Library Team in May and June. If you are not volunteering in any school program, and like to work with books, plenty of books, please contact me: eleanor.chen@ykpaoschool.cn

Happy Weekend!!

Parenting Classes

We have had a very successful first session of parenting classes with just the right balance of lecture, discussion, case studies and role play.  Parents are saying they have found this class “practical, clear and most of all fun”.  Due to the high demand, we would like to offer this class once more before the end of the semester.

Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ is a six session parenting course, developed by the Love and Logic Institute. It is designed to help you find specific answers and actions for some of those difficult moments in child rearing. Moreover, this course emphasizes responsibility and respect, two key components of YKPS character strengths. These simple techniques are effective with all children from toddlers to teens.

The course will run from 5th May to 9th June 2015. It will be 2 hours per week at YK Pao School in the West Building conference room. The time for the course will be Tuesdays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Professional family counsellor, Julia Huang who works with Shanghai Care Corner, will teach the course. Unfortunately, the materials and workbooks are currently only in English and we hope to have them translated into Mandarin for later courses. Julia, however, will be able to answer questions in both English and Mandarin. Each participant will be given a workbook at the beginning of the sessions, and a certificate upon completion.

There will be 18 available spots for this session. The course fee is 1200 RMB per participant, which includes the 6 two-hour sessions, a workbook and certificate. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis, and all others will be placed on a waiting list for any cancellations. As we believe this is a very beneficial course, we hope to offer more sessions during the next academic year.

If you are interested in the course please contact Mary Chen at Shanghai Care Corner to register. Tel: 021-62708252, 60391880 Shanghai Care Corner will be taking names as well as collecting payment. Registration is confirmed once payment has been received by Shanghai Care Corner. If you would like more information about the class please feel free to contact Shane Vey or Diana Zuo at shane.vey@ykpaoschool.cn or diana.zuo@ykpaoschool.cn. Please check the attached course outline for reference.

They lost gracefully and showed lots of respect for the victors, everyone was very proud of their performance and the way in which they conducted themselves. Thanks to the parents for your support!

Good Luck

Best wishes to our 3 volleyball teams playing in their SSSA Tournament this Saturday in Songjiang. We have the largest no. of girls competing in the competition and volleyball is becoming extremely popular at YKPS.

2. Our students are learning about respect, integrity and compassion

3. The referees, coaches and officials are often volunteers

Thank you to parents for your continued support in the above.

Newsletter 10 April 2015

各位包校集体成员,

今早的开放日活动非常成功,感谢前来观摩的二、三、五年级学生家长对本次活动的支持。我们也要感谢出席今天下午家校协力会会议的家长代表们。你们对学校的支持与贡献是非常重要的,我们也会一如既往地珍视各位的意见、想法和观点。当我们团结一致时,我们将为孩子谋取更佳的学习及成长体验。

在另外一件事上,我也想请求您的支持。我了解到,今早在校门外的弄堂里发生了一件尴尬的事情。有几位司机卷入了一场不愉快且不必要的纠纷之中。这导致很多学生目击了成人之间一种非常粗鲁且具有攻击性的行为。首先,我想要强调的是,学校规定私家车不能进入弄堂送学生。其次,我也想提醒所有人考虑一下自己的行为会给孩子起到什么样的榜样作用。我要真诚地感谢我们的保安员工,他们总是能站在突发事件的最前线。学校的保安团队非常敬业,他们总是以孩子的安全为第一考量。我要和所有包校集体成员们共同呼吁,保安人员也应当得到尊重,请对他们以礼相待。

这一周后半周的天气情况越来越好,这也使得本周四的一年级长风公园之行得以圆满完成。

最后,让我们恭喜那些为了奖学金慷慨演讲的五年级学生们。毫无疑问,他们都非常优秀。现在,奖学金委员会的成员们将慎重考虑一下他们最终的决定。这可是件难抉择的事,我想我不会羡慕他们的这份工作!

祝大家周末愉快!更要祝我们的足球队员们好运。

四川之行

继我校在书籍周成功与国际小母牛组织举办“开卷助人”读书筹款活动后,海惠(小母牛)将于4月25日至28日组织我校部分学生、家长和老师前往四川项目点看看募得款项是如何被使用的。与此同时,我们也希望能为探访村庄和当地学校的孩子们带去一些小礼物。如果您能帮助您的孩子捐赠一些书籍、文具或是运动器材等,我们将不甚感谢。在接下去的两周时间内,同学们可以将他们的捐赠物品集中放到前台边的大整理盒中,他们还可以将自己想对当地孩子们说的话写下来,并贴在捐赠物品上。

来自图书馆的信息

亲爱的家长:

最近一封来自其他国际学校图书管理员的邮件让我受到了极大的鼓舞,她觉得我们的图书馆网站LibGuides非常的棒,她正在计划为自己的图书馆也创建一个这样的网站。确实,包校是中国地区较早启用LibGuides的学校,LibGuides是可供图书馆管理员自行编辑设计的电子导览,以帮助学生更好的进行信息检索和使用图书馆资源。每一个导览都是以一个主题或特殊任务而编辑设计的。

最受欢迎的导览有:

新书推荐http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/newbooks

探索单元 http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/eu

品格教育http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/character

当然,也请不要忘记我们的在线资源,所有的在线资源的用户名和密码都可在此页面找到(http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/password )。不妨定期访问我们的图书馆网站,探索更多有价值的资源!

本周五,您的孩子将会把学乐图书俱乐部的订购单带回家,这将是本学年最后一次的图书订购活动。请注意,只有人民币订单上列出的物品才可以订购。当您提交人民币订购表和交付现金时,所付现金应为订购书籍的确切人民币数额。我们的老师不会为您找零。本次订购活动的截止日期为4月17日。

希望大家喜欢我们的图书馆网页,同时也在本次的书籍订购活动中有所收获!

Dear YK Pao School Community,

The Open day went well this morning. Thanks for the support from our Year 2, 3 and 5 parents who came to visit us! Thanks, too, to those parents who attended the PTA Meeting today. Your support and contributions to the school are truly valued and we always value your thoughts, ideas and perspectives. Together, we are able to achieve so much more for our students.

I would like to ask for your support on another matter. This morning, I understand that there was an unfortunate incident in the lane outside the school gates. A few drivers were involved in an unpleasant and unnecessary dispute. This resulted in many of our students witnessing adults behaving in a way which was unpleasant and aggressive. Firstly, I would like to stress that cars should not enter the lane to drop students, and secondly, I would ask us all to consider the behaviours that we model for our young students. My sincere thanks to our hardworking security guards who are at the front line of such incidents. We have a particularly helpful and supportive security team at the school which dedicates itself to the safety and security of your children. I would ask, as with all members of the school community, that they be treated respectfully and with courtesy.

The weather towards the end of this week has been wonderful. This made for a wonderful visit to Chang Feng Park for our Year 1 students.

Finally, congratulations to our Year 5 students who gave their scholarship presentations today. They were all absolutely outstanding. The Scholarship Committee will now retire to consider their decisions. I do not envy them!

Have a great weekend! Good luck to our football teams.

Parenting Classes

We have had a very successful first session of parenting classes with just the right balance of lecture, discussion, case studies and role play.  Parents are saying they have found this class “practical, clear and most of all fun”.  Due to the high demand, we would like to offer this class once more before the end of the semester.

Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ is a six session parenting course, developed by the Love and Logic Institute. It is designed to help you find specific answers and actions for some of those difficult moments in child rearing. Moreover, this course emphasizes responsibility and respect, two key components of YKPS character strengths. These simple techniques are effective with all children from toddlers to teens.

The course will run from 5th May to 9th June 2015. It will be 2 hours per week at YK Pao School in the West Building conference room. The time for the course will be Tuesdays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Professional family counsellor, Julia Huang who works with Shanghai Care Corner, will teach the course. Unfortunately, the materials and workbooks are currently only in English and we hope to have them translated into Mandarin for later courses. Julia, however, will be able to answer questions in both English and Mandarin. Each participant will be given a workbook at the beginning of the sessions, and a certificate upon completion.

There will be 18 available spots for this session. The course fee is 1200 RMB per participant, which includes the 6 two-hour sessions, a workbook and certificate. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis, and all others will be placed on a waiting list for any cancellations. As we believe this is a very beneficial course, we hope to offer more sessions during the next academic year.

If you are interested in the course please contact Mary Chen at Shanghai Care Corner to register. Tel: 021-62708252, 60391880 Shanghai Care Corner will be taking names as well as collecting payment. Registration is confirmed once payment has been received by Shanghai Care Corner. If you would like more information about the class please feel free to contact Shane Vey or Diana Zuo at shane.vey@ykpaoschool.cn or diana.zuo@ykpaoschool.cn. Please check the attached course outline for reference.

A Trip to Sichuan

Following the successful Read to Feed Programme we ran during Book Week, the Heifer Organisation is going to take some of our students, parents and teachers to Sichuan to see how the money they raised will be spent from April 25th to 28th. We would like to take some small gifts for the children in the village and local school we will visit. If you can help your child to donate some books, stationary or sports equipments, we would really appreciate that. Children can put their donations in the box beside the reception desk over the next two weeks.  They should also write a message and paste it on their donation.

Message from the Library

Dear Parents,

I was encouraged by one of the colleagues from an international school in Shanghai that our Library website, LibGuides (http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/primary_library ), looks fantastic and she would love to build one for her Library! Indeed, YK Pao is one of the very first schools in China that launches LibGuides, the customized electronic guides that Librarians create to help students more efficiently with their use of Library. Each guide is customized to a particular topic or a specific assignment.

The most popular Guides are:

New Books: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/newbooks

Exploration Unit (EU): http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/eu

Character Education: http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/character

Of course, the secret key to unlock all our online resources is not to be forgotten (http://libguides.ykpaoschool.cn/password ) Please visit our website regularly and discover the hidden treasure!

This Friday, your child(ren) will bring home a catalog for Scholastic Book Club, which is also our very last Book Club before summer. Please note that only items listed on the RMB order form are available for purchase in China, and our teachers will not return any change. Please place your order with the exact amount in RMB before Friday, April 17th 2015.

Happy LibGuiding & Book Shopping!

各位包校集体成员,

能见到二年级的学生及家长一起参与到家庭数学派对活动中来是非常让人开心的一件事。灵活、实际的应用问题和极具探究性的活动安排都让人非常地投入。感谢前来支持本次活动的所有家长以及为此积极筹备的数学组团队。一如往昔,我们也要感谢班代们为大家准备美味可口的晚餐!

本周,我们三年级的学生出行去了植物园。他们很是幸运,因为出行当天的天气非常棒。随着夏季的临近,孩子们觉得穿夏季校服更舒服。烦请各位留意孩子们是否每天穿着正确的校服。学生应当对自己的着装负责,这是非常重要的,但只有当我们对他们有一致要求的时候,孩子们才会严格遵守规定。我们也期待您的配合与支持,谢谢。

随着下周开放日的来临,我们又迎来了繁忙的时节。请查阅校长来信中的具体信息。

希望趁此清明节之际,大家能有机会缅怀逝去的亲人,也希望各位度过一个轻松的复活节长周末。我们期待着孩子们于4月7日即下周二重返校园。

开放日

下周五(4月10日)是二、三和五年级的开放日,开放时间为早上7:45-12:15。欢迎相关年级的学生家长前来观摩课堂。

为了让您对孩子的学校生活有一个更全面的概念和理解,我们鼓励您尽可能多看几个班级,鉴于此,我们将不在教室里特别为家长摆放椅子,请尽管从一个教室走到另一个教室。当日早上校长会在礼堂提醒家长开放日的注意事项,我们也会将开放日的课表发到您的手上。

我们期待与二、三及五年级的家长在下周五会面,也提前感谢您对此次活动的支持与配合。

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

本周,我想要分享一些有关直接沟通重要性的建议。随着社交媒体的诞生,我们都很享受与他人分享我们的故事,我们可以通过微信、微博、推特、脸书以及其他形形色色的平台快速分享生活中美好的事情,有时还可以通过这些社交工具发送紧急信息,但我们应对自己所分享的信息付责任。我们应该教会我们的孩子、朋友以及家人什么才是可靠的解决问题的方式。与他人开放、直接的沟通是消除误会、解决矛盾的最好的,也是最快捷的方式。

我们常常会因情绪化、反应过快或不够理性而与他人分享一些信息。正如我们孩提时代玩的传话筒游戏一样,这些信息有可能会被误解、误传,或者只有一部分信息被传递了出去。这种情况会造成不满情绪、沟通障碍,有时甚至会造成恐慌。直接跟能帮助你解决问题的人分享你的想法和观点是一个百试百灵的好办法。当我们在公众平台分享事情时,很多人并不能完全理解你想传达的信息,于是他们会根据自己的理解传递与你原意不符的信息。

我们鼓励自己的朋友、家人特别是孩子,能进行更直接的交流。无论交流的内容是一件让人忧心的事,还是只是友好地打个招呼,大家千万不要忽略了几近消失的电话或信件沟通的魅力。相信通过这些方式接收到信息的人也会非常欣赏你所选择的沟通方式。让我们为孩子们树立个榜样,放下手机、远离电脑,去聆听并享受一下真正面对面的交流。

品格教育家长团队正在寻觅更多的志愿者加入并与孩子们分享故事。请查看附件内的通告。

来自总务处的消息

根据长宁区教育局安全管理中心的通知要求,由于近期发生了两起冒充学生家长欲带走学生的事件,所幸未发生严重后果。我校在加强上学放学期间保安护校工作的同时,希望家长能对学生上学和放学途中的安全加强监管。自行上学和放学回家的学生必须由家长向学校申请,途中要注意安全,警惕陌生人,最好近期能由家长亲自接送。

祝贺所有参加于上周末在宋庆龄学校举行的田径比赛的学生们。孩子们的表现不俗,并在每个比赛项目上都有所斩获。特别要提到的是,四年级的李友友、肖语瑶、刘昱辰和五年级的张传翊和华思岑,他们都获得了奖牌。此外,参加4 x 300米接力赛的徐均凡、肖语瑶、张传翊和周思涵也获得了第三名的好成绩。感谢各位家长的支持。

我们还要祝贺参加了周末在上海中学举行的网球锦标赛的选手们。我们只能选择五位选手参赛,但他们每个都表现得很出色。五年级的潘大立更是获得锦标赛的第三名。感谢到场支持的各位家长。

在您支持包校小运动员的同时,我们有几点温馨提示:

1. 只给予积极正面的鼓励

2. 我们的学生正通过比赛学习尊重、正直和仁爱

3. 裁判员、教练员和工作人员通常也都是赛事的志愿者

4. 与赢得比赛相比,团队合作、体育精神和积极参与对小运动员们来说更为重要

Dear YK Pao School Community,

What a pleasure it was to see our Year 2 families engaging with Mathematics this week. The active and practical nature of the problem-solving and investigative work was very engaging. Thanks to the parents supporting the event and to the Maths team for provided such worthwhile activities. The class reps, as ever, did a wonderful job with the refreshments!

Our Year 3 students enjoyed a great visit this week and were extremely lucky with the weather. As the summer approaches it is worth noting that the students are more comfortable in summer style uniform. Please do help us to observe the correct school uniform. It is important that the students assume responsibility for this themselves and they will only do so if we are all consistent. Thanks in anticipation of your help.

We have a busy time approaching with our open mornings next week. Please see below for details.

We wish you a family focused Qing Ming Festival and a relaxing long Easter weekend. We look forward to seeing the students back on Tuesday 7th April.

Open Morning

The Open Morning for Y2, 3 and 5 is on April 10th, starting at 7:45 and finishing at 12:15. Parents of Y2, 3 and 5 are very much welcomed to attend the event.

Open Morning provides a good opportunity for parents to get to know the school’s regular routines and their child’s daily life in school. To ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of students’ life in school, we encourage you to visit more classes rather than just stay where your child is, therefore, we are not going to prepare chairs for parents in the classroom, and parents please feel free to walk in and out. Principals will remind you of some tips and matters needing attention for enjoying the event and timetable will be prepared for the parents on that morning.

We are looking forward to seeing Y2, 3 and 5 parents next Friday. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

This week I would like to share advice on the importance of direct communication. With the introduction of Social Media, we all enjoy sharing our stories and our celebrations with others. Wechat, Weibo, Twitter, Facebook as well as many other platforms allow us to quickly share wonderful life events and sometimes, urgent messages. We do need to show responsibility whenever we post. We would like to teach our children and our friends and family responsible ways to solve problems. Open and direct communication with our contacts is the best way and fastest way to solve any misunderstandings or conflicts.

Often we get emotional and react quickly and irrationally and share something to many people, and if we remember the telephone game we played as children, the message is misinterpreted and changed or only part of the message is delivered; this causes frustration, miscommunication and sometimes, panic. It is always a good idea to share your thoughts and concerns directly with the people that can help us solve any situation. When we share concerns in a public forum, many people don’t fully understand what your message is, and it can be relayed differently.

We should encourage this with all of our friends and family and especially our children. Even if it is a concern, or just a friendly hello, don’t forget the almost lost art of a phone call, or a letter. The receiver will appreciate it very much. Let’s set a great example for our children and put the mobile phone down, step away from the computer screen and enjoy some real face to face or voice to ear chats.

Character Parent Group

The Character Parents are looking for more volunteers to help come in and share some stories with the classes. Please see the attached notice.

There are 12 transfer students joined us this semester and they’ve met Mr. Spencer and Ms. Chen in Week 3 and 4 of the semester. If you are curious about what did they talk about, please have a look at the attachment.

Principals Meet with Transfer Students

Message from General Services Department

Noticed by the Security Management Center of Changning Education Bureau that two cases have happened recently, someone pretended to be students’ parents and wanted to pick the students up after school. Fortunately, there were no serious consequences. While we strengthen the security procedures on arriving time and releasing time, we sincerely urge parents to strengthen the supervision over these two periods. Students who have been approved to come to school and go home by themselves, should be alert to these cases and potential dangers. We strongly suggest parents accompany students on their way to school and back home recently.

Message from Music Department

Saturday Programme

Please note that there will be NO Saturday Programme this week due to the Qing Ming holiday.

Our new woodwind teacher, Tamara Smith, is hoping to start next Saturday morning. If your child wishes to learn a woodwind instrument, please contact our Enrichment Programme – ep@ykpaoschool.cn.

Message from PE Department

Congratulations

Well done to all those students that took part in last week’s SSSA Athletics Meet at Soong Ching Ling. We had many great performances and took home medals for everyone that raced. Special mention to Year 4 Yoyo Li, Amelia, Vicky and Year 5 Aurora and Anita who won medals and to the 4x 300m relay team of Vanda, Amelia, Aurora and Helen who came 3rd in the relay. Thank you to the parents for your support.

Well done also to our Tennis players at Shanghai High School who participated in the tennis tournament over the weekend. We were only allowed to enter 5 players but everyone played great tennis and performed well. Special mention to Year 5 Danny Pan who came 3rd in the tournament. Thank you to all the parents for your support.

各位包校集体成员,

我们真是度过了美妙的一周!书籍周活动取得了巨大成功。我们能赠予孩子最有影响力且意义深远的礼物就是培养出他们对文学与阅读的热爱,而本周的活动就提供给了我们一次良机。我要感谢包校集体齐心协作确保了本次活动的成功举办。今天活动中闪耀登场的各种书中人物的服饰也让人眼前一亮。感谢大家的积极配合与支持。

今年的开卷助人活动已于上周结束,本周我们公布了让人振奋的统计结果。我们一共募集到的金额已经超过了164,000元。这是小母牛项目组织有史以来接到来自单所学校的最大一笔捐款。祝贺所有参与活动的包校成员。计算表明,平均每个参与活动的孩子在活动期间读了12.5本书。这是不是很棒呢!

感谢于上周末代表包校出战新加坡的家长和学生们。我们的11岁以下年龄段球队真是所向披靡。祝贺所有参与其中的师生及家长。

感谢我们的故事妈妈大力支持学校的品格教育项目。她们进入课堂为孩子们阅读包含德育主题及信息的故事。这让孩子们将自己所学运用到了实际生活之中。

在校长来信前言的最后一部分,我们要提到在包校服务多年但于今天结束在包校工作的Jessica Chou老师。包校小学部的音乐组一直是声誉斐然的。没有Jessica老师的全力付出,我们也不会拥有现在的成绩。让我们衷心感谢并将最美好的祝福送给她。

祝您周末愉快!

来自图书馆的信息

今天是书籍周的最后一天,也是“开卷助人”活动激动人心的一天。通过包校学生的共同努力,今年我们再次打破了去年的记录。包校小学部的学生一共筹得善款164,974.60元,阅读了6649个单元的书籍(1个单元=50页)。

“全情投入班级大奖”和“乐善好施班级大奖”获奖者:

今年的小母牛项目探访活动将于4月25至28日前往四川青神县项目点,将由14名学生,4名家长和4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2015年度的“开卷助人”活动!

下学年重要日期

根据教育局的文件通知,2015-2016学年公立学校的学生总共要进行41周的学习。作为一所私立的中国学校,我们学生的上学日总数也需尽最大努力与教育局规定的上学天数保持一致。但由于我们的学生主体构成的特殊性,包校的学生还享有圣诞假期。为平衡上学日总数,包校总是比其他公立学校早开学且寒假天数也相对少于其他公立学校。除却圣诞假期和五一长假,包校的学生在下一学年要进行39周的学习。考虑到公立学校的学生在每学期的期中、期末考试后有好几天并不实质地在校学习,因而包校学生与公立学校学生实际的上学天数已基本一致。

为了帮助家长更好的规划家庭假期,请查看附件内关于下学年的几个重要日期。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。

二手环保集市

亲爱的各位包校大家庭成员:

大家好!

一年一度环保二手集市又将到来,这项精彩活动已经成为了我们包校社区的一个经典盛事,其宗旨是让孩子学习如何成为一个“环保生活者”。因此,我们建议家长们协助孩子,可以将自己以前的用品(如旧校服、图书、玩具、文具等等,除食品外的任何有用物品),进行必要的清洁整理后,拿到集市上来出售或交换,亲身体验到二手用品可以如何更好地重复利用,同时帮助他人,帮助社会。除此之外,我们还向展示孩子们的环保作品,以及由志愿家长组织环保游戏。活动当天还有学校提供的简餐,餐券可于活动当日现场购买。

我们也欢迎包校社区中的任何非盈利性学生、家长或教职员工的业余团体、组织或俱乐部,以团体的名义来参加集市,这是一个与众多校园粉丝互动、展示自身形象的绝好机会。

下周二(3月31日),孩子们放学后会将打印的活动报名表带回家,您可填写好回执中的各项信息,并将相关的费用一同放进信封交给班主任老师,我们保证竭尽所能来规划出更多的活动场地,按先到先得的原则安排摊位和环保作品展位,并通过电话和电邮与您确认。

今年将由二年级志愿者家长们来承担主要的活动组织工作,欢迎各位家长和孩子们,积极参加到我们的现场工作志愿者队伍中来,协助场地布置、来宾签到、集市秩序维护、餐券售卖、交通/货物接应、现场摄影/摄像等各个工作环节中。我们期待着与您一起共事,为包校社区出一份力!

Dear YK Pao School Community,

What a wonderful week we have experienced! The Book Week has been an outstanding success. One of the most influential and far-reaching gifts we can give to our children is a deep love of literature and reading. This week has been an excellent opportunity to nurture this. My thanks to the whole community which has assembled together to ensure the success of the week. The costumes of book characters were outstanding today. Our thanks for your support.

Our Read to Feed Programme closed last week and this week we revealed the fantastic results. A total of more than RMB 164,000 was raised. This is the highest single total ever received by the Heifer organization from a single school. Congratulations to all. Calculations suggest that on average, each child read 12.5 books during the reading phase of the project. This is wonderful

We are very grateful to the parents and students who travelled to Singapore last weekend. Our U11 team was undefeated. Congratulations to all.

A big thank you to our Moms who are supporting our Character Education Programme by visiting classes and reading stories with moral themes and messages. It’s helping our students to apply their learning in real situations.

The final word of this newsletter must go to Jessica Chou who leaves us today after many years of outstanding service. YK Pao School Primary Division has an outstanding reputation for its music programme. Without Jessica’s outstanding energy and commitment, it would not have been possible to build what we have. Our sincere thanks and best wishes for her future leave with her.

Have a great weekend.

Message from the Library

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 broken the record of last year. Students of YK Pao primary division have donated RMB 164,974.60 and read 6649 units in six weeks. One unit equals 50 pages.

The outstanding reading and fundraising class award goes to:
Y1A, Y1B, Y2A, Y3A, Y3C, Y4A, Y4B, Y5A, Y5D

The full participation class award goes to:

This year, the project visit will be to Qingshen County in Sichuan Province from Saturday 25th to Tuesday 28th of April. Fourteen students, four parents, and four 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 2015.

Important Dates for Next Year

According to the notice from Education Bureau, there will be 41 weeks in Academic Year 2015-2016 for public school students. As a private Chinese school, we have to try our best to align with regulation on the total number of school days, however, given the fact that our students enjoys Christmas Holiday due to student body nature, we start school earlier than other public schools and have a shorter winter break to compromise the school days. Excluding the Christmas Holiday and the long May Holiday, we have 39 weeks in total for the whole school year, and considering the several days that students in public schools are released after 4 assessment weeks over the year, we are having about the same school days compared with the public schools.

To assist with your holiday planning, please have a look at some important dates for the next school year. Please note that the home visiting programme occurs in late August. As this is a good opportunity for parents and homeroom teachers to communicate with each other before the new semester starts, please be sure to make yourself available. You might get a call ahead of time to confirm the scheduled meeting.

Eco Fair

Dear YK Pao School Community,

Here comes the annual Eco Fair again. This wonderful activity has become a classic event of our YK Pao Community. The purpose of the Eco Fair is to let children learn how to become an “Environmentalist” every day. Therefore, we recommend parents help children to sort out the used items (such as old uniforms, books, toys, stationery and any useful items, except food) and do some necessary cleaning, then sell or exchange them. In this way, children can experience how to reuse, help others, help the community and protect the environment. Besides the fair, we will collect children’s environmental works and organize an exhibition. We will have games- especially using environmentally simple props, full of creativity, and surprising fun! School cafeteria will provide us with some simple lunch; vouchers can be purchased on site.

Meanwhile, we welcome all the nonprofit communities of the school, such as amateur groups, organizations and clubs established by our students, parents or teachers, to participate in the fair. It will be an excellent opportunity to interactive and represent to all your fans in school.

Next Tuesday (March 31), the kids will take the enrollment form to home. If you and your children decide to participate, please fill in the form, and enclose relevant charges into the envelope to your homeroom teacher. Because of the limited booth and exhibition areas, we have to arrange enrollment according to the order of received forms, fees or the works for the exhibition. We will confirm it with parents by email and messages.

The Y2 parents who volunteered to undertake the organisation of the big event in this year honor us. We also call for parents or even students to join in our volunteer team. Volunteers can participate in, such as game organization, booth layout, guest attendance, lunch voucher sale, photography, video recording, and goods carrying assistance and so on. No matter what kind of job you do, your participation will make the activity more secure and smooth. We look forward to working with you and contribute our effort to the YK Pao community together!

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact following volunteers:

Message from PE Department

Congratulations

Well done to our U11 Basketball Team who came 2nd in a very close SSSA Basketball Tournament hosted by us at YKPS Primary. The final came down to us vs Soong Ching Ling School and was very hotly contested. Special mention to Bill Zhang who won the MVP trophy for the tournament. Thank you to all the teachers and parents for their support!

Singapore Football Tour Complete!

Congratulations to our U11 Football team who completed their football tour of Singapore last week. They played 2 matches vs Real Madrid and Global Football Academy and won both games! They travelled to Singapore with the U16 Girl’s Team and U16 Boy’s team from our Songjiang campus and were supported at both games by the older students. When students were not playing in the football matches they had time to do some Singapore sightseeing and  visit Sentosa Island for some water park fun! It was a wonderful trip for all involved. Special thanks to the parents that came with the team and helped. Player of the tournament was Year 5 Tiger! Well done!

Good Luck

Best wishes to our student athletes this weekend that will travel to the SSSA Athletics Tournament at Soong Ching Ling School on Saturday. They will compete in running, jumping and throwing events.

Best wishes also to our Tennis players who will travel to Shanghai High School to play in a tennis tournament there on Sunday. Those students have received confirmation letters and returned the slip to Ms Lucy in time are eligible to play.

Sport for Life Sunday Football Season 2 – Update

After consulting with Mr. Simone our Head of Football and many parents of footballers, we have regrettably decided to not send any YK Pao Teams to the 2nd Sport for Life Sunday Football on May 3rd. This is due to it falling on a Sunday at the end of our May holiday week making it difficult for us to send a full quota of teams. The remaining Sundays will go ahead as usual. Sport for Life will take this into consideration when adjusting the league tables and awarding the trophies in Week 5. The remaining weeks stay the same.

Newsletter 20 March 2015

各位包校集体成员,

毫无疑问,当家校之间能通力合作去支持、激发和鼓励孩子们学习时,我们的学生会取得更好的成绩。本周的四年级数学派对活动就是最佳的实例。我们真切感受到了趣味活动营造出来的愉悦氛围,同时,能看到学生和家长一起互动也是一件赏心悦目的事。

包校的11岁以下年龄段球队的男孩子们在Toby老师和部分家长的带领下已安全地抵达了新加坡。今晚,他们将迎来与皇家马德里青年队的第一场比赛。让我们祝他们好运,也希望我们能早日听到他们此行的心得体验。可以想象,这次经历也将让他们终身难忘。

今年书籍周活动以一场别具风格的活动拉开帷幕,儿童文学家、插画家Liz Million女士于今天作客包校。孩子们都被她精彩的讲座给迷住了。书籍周下个星期的活动安排也是精彩不断,我们都满心期待着。我们要特别感谢Andre Sleigh老师协调安排书籍周里的各项活动。

我们很遗憾地宣布,Jessica Chou老师将于下个周末结束在包校的工作。Jessica老师在包校工作了八年,并为包校音乐组做出了杰出的贡献。她在管弦乐队的建立和弦乐合奏团的培养上起到了举足轻重的作用。我们衷心感谢她为包校音乐课程的发展和推进所做的一切。由于个人职业发展的缘故,Jessica老师即将离开包校,并在上海的另一所国际学校获得了一个更高的职位。让我们祝她事业有成!

我们将于明天举办一场校际篮球比赛,也衷心祝愿我们的小球员们能有出色的表现。

祝您周末愉快!

Dear YK Pao School Community,

There is no doubt that our students achieve well when home and school work together to support, stimulate and encourage their learning. This was demonstrated so clearly during our Year 4 Family Maths Evenings this week. The sense of fun and enjoyment was tangible and it was wonderful to see families learning together.

Our Under 11 Boys Football team arrived safely in Singapore with Mr. Toby and several parents. This evening they will play their first fixture against the Real Madrid youth team. We wish them well and look forward to hearing about their experiences. As you might imagine, this will be an unforgettable experience for them all.

Our Book Week started in style with a wonderful visit from Illustrator and Author Liz Million today. Our students were enthralled. Next week promises to be great fun and we look forward to the events planned for next week. Particular thanks to Andre Sleigh who has overseen the coordination of many of the events.

We are sorry to announce that Jessica Chou will be leaving us at the end of next week after eight years of excellent contributions to the Music Department of YK Pao School. She has played a pivotal role in the development of our school orchestra and in developing the strings ensembles. We would like to thank her for all that she has done to promote and develop the Music programme in our school. She is leaving us for career development reasons and to take up a promoted position at another International School in Shanghai. We wish her every success and happiness in her new venture.

We look forward to hosting an inter-school Basketball Competition tomorrow. We wish our teams well.

Have a good weekend.

Dear Parents

The 2015 Book Week is knocking on the door! To warm up for this special event, our children had unlocked their wild imagination today with the popular British illustrator, Liz Million, who demonstrated her unique graphic techniques and discovered several young talents among our students.

“Magic and Mystery” is our Book Week theme this year, and tons of fun is guaranteed. Book Fairs, Fancy Dress Friday, and more close up workshops with renowned authors from both Taiwan and China. The fun is not just for children, because Ms Yu Zhiying, the well-known author and translator (No, David!) from Taiwan, is going to host a workshop for PARENTS as well! Please read on for more information on Book Week.

Book Fairs: Please make sure your children come to school with their pocket money for their Home Library collection. Parents can also pay with bank cards or Alipay.

CHANGE OF DATE FOR THE SPRING CONCERT

To better prepare our young musicians for our main concert this semester, the Concert has moved from Friday 8th May to Friday 5th June. Please mark this in your diaries.

Opportunities Available on Saturdays:

Percussion Club

Saturday Percussion Club is a group activity for those who like to play percussion (drums etc.). It takes place from 09:00 – 10:00 every Saturday during the programme and is open to everyone. Anyone interested in joining this fun activity run by Mr. Al should contact Ms. Corie at the Music Department (corie.gao@ykpaoshcool.cn).

Viola/Violin Lessons

We have many violins and cellos in the orchestra – we do not have and violas yet. Those students wishing to be different and who want to make a difference in the school orchestras – why not try the viola. The viola is almost the same as a violin, only it is a little bigger and sounds slightly lower. Our viola teacher also teaches the violin for those who wish to learn. Please contact our Enrichment Programme Co-ordinators at EP@ykpaoschool.cn.

Trumpet Lessons

The wind band and orchestra are looking for wind and brass players. Mr. Al teaches both trumpet and drum kit. There is also one slot available on Tuesday afternoons at 16:30 – first come, first served. Please contact our Enrichment Programme Co-ordinators at EP@ykpaoschool.cn.

Guitar Lessons

Mr. Eduardo is available for teaching guitar lessons to those who wish to play. He is a very accomplished jazz guitarist and we have spaces at present. We do still have some vacancies after school during the week. Please contact our Enrichment Programme Co-ordinators at EP@ykpaoschool.cn.

Coming soon…..

Message from PE Department

Good Luck!

Best wishes to our U11 Football Team who are off to Singapore to play in their first overseas matches. This is a great step forward for YK Pao School and sport in Primary school. As we take our first steps to expand the PE program outside of Shanghai and overseas to compete with other international schools around the world. The U11 Footballers are great ambassadors for the school and whatever the results in Singapore they will be the first team to play for the school overseas! Good luck to the boys and thank you to the parents for all their wonderful support.

Change of Venue for Girl’s Football

On Sat May 30th – SSSA U11 Girls Football at SUIS (Gubei) has now been changed to WISS. Please make a note in your calendars.

Sports Awards Evening – New Date & Special Guest Search Underway

Due to a music event happening in the same week, the YK Pao Primary Sports Awards Evening has now been moved to a week later on Thursday 18th of June. Please make a note of the new date in your diaries. We are searching for an inspiring VIP guest to make a speech and help us with the ceremony, if anyone has any contacts that can help us on this date please let the PE Dept know. We have had World Champions, Olympic Medalists and top coaches in the past. We want to make this year’s ceremony extra special for our student athletes.

Sport for Life Sunday Football Season 2 – Update

After consulting with Mr. Simone our Head of Football and many parents of footballers, we have regrettably decided to not send any YK Pao Teams to the 2nd Sport for Life Sunday Football on May 3rd. This is due to it falling on a Sunday at the end of our May holiday week making it difficult for us to send a full quota of teams. The remaining Sundays will go ahead as usual. Sport for Life will take this into consideration when adjusting the league tables and awarding the trophies in Week 5. The remaining weeks stay the same.
