Principal Leigh 发言稿:

Learning for Life

Welcome

Firstly, may I welcome everyone here today, Principal Zhou, Centre Director Ms Lin, parents, friends, teachers and of course, our students, the graduating class of 2017.

Thanks

May I also say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this year which, in my opinion, has been the most successful ever.There are a number of people I would like to thank. My Centre Director for her calm guidance and for her advice and support. My teachers, many of whom are amongst the most gifted I have worked with in my forty years in education. And, most importantly, my students who are the nicest group of young people I have ever worked with. I come to school with a smile on my face, I leave with a smile on my face and spend the whole day smiling. Senior Three is a difficult year with many demands and much stress placed upon students. You have coped admirably and I am exceptionally proud of you.

Learning for Life

The more I learn, the more I learn how much there is still left to learn. As I have journeyed through my own life, I have become aware that knowledge is not only a means by which you can better understand the world but also a way of appreciating how much, as an individual, you don’t know. This is not to be perceived as a weakness but as a strength for, havingthe strength to admit your weakness is what makes you strong. I once had an art teacher who pointed out that it’s not only what you can see that is important but also what you can’t see. When drawing still life, it was impressed upon me that the spaces between the objects were just as vital to the success of the composition, as the actual objects themselves. To put it succinctly,

“To know one’s ignorance is the best part of knowledge”

(Lao Tzu c 600BC)

and,

“When you know a thing, to recognize that you know it and when

you do not know a thing, to recognize that you do not know it…

that is knowledge!”

(Confucius, c 500BC)

It is important to recognize that in a rapidly changing world, it is vital that we remain lifelong learners. Knowledge production has become exponential with, for example, estimates that the amount of technical information doubles every two years. New knowledge is constantly being generated and what we already know is constantly being revised, to the extent that much of what students learn in school could well be out of date before they graduate. Indeed, it could be argued that teachers are preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies not yet invented, to provide solutions to problems that are not yet problems!

Therefore, as you progress through your senior school years and university, understand that it is not sufficient to simply know something or, to understand what you know, because for knowledge to have value, it has to be applied. Following application, their then must follow the review processes of analysis and evaluation so that the application of knowledge can be refined and improved. Only then, will you have reached the top of the thinking skills hierarchy and have the opportunity to be truly creative, fulfilled in the knowledge that you are using what you have learned.

In summary, know what you know and use it, know what you don’t know and embrace it, know that you will never know all there is to know and wonder in it and strive to reach the pinnacle of the cognitive skills pyramid.

中方班主任庞婷婷即兴赋诗一首:

昨夜风

今晨雨

依依惜别离

同门三秋缘相聚

勿忘深情谊

明起身

奔前程

将把彼岸登

海外求学诚不易

遥祝业皆成

女士们先生们、敬爱的老师和亲爱的同学们

    大家早上好!

    我是来自IB的吴可幻,今天很荣幸能成为南京外国语学校国际部2017届毕业典礼的学生代表发言。首先我想感谢在这三年里老师的指导和家长的关照,也感谢同学们在这条成长的路上和我相互扶持。高中生活转瞬即逝,我们相识的日子似乎还历历在目。在这三年里,我学会了三件让我受益终生的事情,今天在这里我很乐意与大家分享。

    我在高中学到的第一件事情,是抗压能力。

    南外国际部的学习生活——尤其是我所经历的IB生活的确很苦,可是在高中三年结束之时我又不得不感谢那一个个让我们焦头烂额、面颊挂泪的夜晚,因为它们真正实现了我们的成长。我清楚地记得高三上学期接连四五个月的紧张和焦虑,接踵而至的论文截止日期和日常作业、学科任务,伴随着标化考试、大学申请和课外活动,如同大山一样压在我们身上。每天我们工作学习到后半夜,第二天又带着疲惫去接收一番新的知识。和大家一样,我也有很多觉得挺不过去想就此放弃的时刻,高三我觉得最轻松的时间只有在每天晚上坐公交车回家的那半个小时,下了公交车一个人走在橙色的灯光下那种无助的感觉至今难忘。但回头看看我们竟然真的挺过去了。如果在大学生活中再遇到自以为过不去的困难,就获得了只要咬咬牙就能像高中时那样挺过去的经验,抗压能力就因此增强了。这种宝贵的抗压能力并非从书本上习得的理论,而是一种我们通过亲身经历而获得的受益终生的意识。

    我在高中学到的第二件事,是学会包容。

我很庆幸对三观形成至关重要的这三年能在南外国际部的集体中度过。我们是中西合璧教育的产物,一群热爱思考、理想主义的青年;我从未在曾经的其它集体中找到任何一个像南外国际部这样如此愿意自发进行思想交流和精神讨论的多元化集体。原本顽固着守着固有观念的我,逐渐在与朋友的交流中学会求同存异,诸多价值观也发生了巨大的改变,也用自己的观点去影响别人,与朋友互相帮助找到符合理想的价值观。另一方面,我也开始学会包容自己的不完美,大胆地去承认自己的优缺点,更加坦然地直面自己是什么样的人,为未来的自我提升铺平道路。

    我在高中学到的第三件事,是面对孤独。

    在成年之际,我突然感受到了一种前所未有的孤独。从前的我们在长辈的庇佑和同伴的引导下成长,现在突然要孑然一身地走向需要为自己的行为负责的年龄。等待我们的是重重远洋外的陌生世界,一片我们大多数人都从未涉足、也难有熟人照应的新大陆。我们将要孤独地起居、孤独地在大学图书馆、教学楼、宿舍、食堂中四点一线、孤独地去看病、孤独地面对学业和人际关系的大起大落、孤独地面对每一次人生选择。我们仿佛是即将远行的战士,带着风萧萧兮易水寒,壮士一去兮不复还的壮志,在这条成长单行线上不回头地走下去。我突然意识到,高中三年学到的种种独立思考,都是在为这趟单行旅程做充足准备。意识到人生的孤独是成年的第一步,我们十七八岁的心也已经做好了孤独的准备,即将远离家乡,独自踏上自己任重道远的人生之路。

    隔着这高中三年的鸿沟去回望三年前的我们,外表看似相同,心却好似已经翻过了一座大山,内心的坚强早已今非昔比。如果每个人都是大海上朝着不同方向定向航行的船,那就让我祝福大家在前路上都能一帆风顺吧!前方的海域更加开阔,暗礁与风浪也会更多,但到风平浪静之时且回头欣赏一下——在那之前,让我们一起在人生的大海上无畏地航行下去!

谢谢大家。(鞠躬)

Ladies and gentleman, my dear teachers and fellow classmates,

Good morning! My name is Wu, Kehuan (Selina), and I’m very honored to be the speaker of the 2017 Commencement of Nanjing Foreign Language School International Center. First I want to express my gratitude to the generous guidance from our teachers and constant care from our parents, and to my fellow classmates who help us to become better individuals. Time flies swiftly, and I can still vividly recall the day when we first met. In these three years, I have learnt three things that will benefit me for a lifetime. Today, I am more than happy to share these three things with you all.

 

 

The first thing that I learned in high school is the ability to deal with the pressure of work.

School life in our international center was tough, especially for IB, but after three years of high school, I wanted to thank those terribly busy nights we struggled through with tears on our faces. They made our growth happen. In the first semester of Senior 3, anxiousness lasted for over five months, which was caused by countless essay deadlines, assignments, standardized tests, college application and extracurricular activities. I clearly remember how these fell upon us like heavy mountains on our back. Every day we worked over midnight and still had to go to school with tired bodies for new knowledge. Just like everyone, I have moments that I figured I couldn’t make it through and wanted to give up. In Senior 3, the easiest time for me was the half-an-hour bus trip back home every night; I still remember after getting off the bus, how helpless I felt when walking in the dim orange light over the streets. But tracing these intense days back now, we really made them through. If we were to meet this kind of arduous process in universities again, we can tell ourselves that nothing cannot be conquered, just like what we underwent in our high school life. This ability of dealing pressure can never be learned from textbooks. It is an ability that can only be learned through experiences and I believe that it will benefit us forever.

The second thing that I learned in high school is broad-mindedness.

Three years in high school are the most important years for the formation of one’s views of life. I am thankful that I lived these three years in our international center. We are the results of a integration of eastern and western education, and we are young people who love thinking and prefer idealism. I have never found another group which possesses the same willingness to express and to exchange their thoughts and spiritsas we do. At the beginning of high school, I was trying to stay with myself and my conservative views, but I slowly learned to seek common grounds while reserving differences when I communicate with my friends. My views of value changed tremendously, and I also used my opinions to influence others, to help each other find the best ideal views of value.On the other hand, I learned to tolerate my own imperfection, acknowledge my own strength and weaknesses, and calmly face the my true self. This prepared me for future elevation.

The third thing that I learned in high school is facing solitude.

Entering adulthood, I suddenly feel overwhelmingly lonely. We used to grow under protection from seniors and guidance from friends, but now we are on our own, stepping towards the age of being responsible. Awaits us the unknown world on the other side of the ocean, a new continent that most of us have few friends available. We will live alone, travel in the campus alone, visit the hospital alone, face the study alone, and stand at the crossroads of life alone. We are like the warriors leaving for a war, walking on this street of life with no turning back. I suddenly realize that all the independent thinking we learned, independent works assigned, and independent actions we had to experience, were all the preparations for this one-way journey. Realizing solitude is the first step of growing into an adult. Our eighteen-year-old minds are all ready for it. We are about to leave our hometown with solitude, stepping onto a long life journey with huge responsibilities on our shoulders.

Looking back to the beginning of our Senior 1, we though look similar outside, but actually different inside. Now we are armed with strongest minds ever. If everyone is a floating ship on an open sea, let me wish everyone have a favorable wind throughout the voyage. The sea ahead will be even more open. Though there will be stormy waves and the hidden reefs, it would be enjoyable to look back when the sea is at peace. Before that, let us sail together fearlessly on this sea of life!

Thank you.
