塔省中文学校网站培训报道

在这个信息和网络的时代,为了更好的服务学生,方便家长,塔省中文学校在去年建立了自己的网站。同时,为了指导家长们更好更加充分地利用我校的网站,加强家长和老师之间的交流和互动,我校在2011年5月7日就如何使用学校网站特别举办了一次针对家长的培训。

 

该培训由参与过网站设计的韩老师主讲,培训内容为中文学校网站功能的介绍。首先,家长朋友们可以在学校网站首页查询到我校的招生简章,班级设置,开课时间和收费标准。建校的历史和老师们的资历也有不同的版块加以介绍。在了解了这些基本信息后,如果您决定来中文学校学习的话,那么下一步就是网上注册。我校网站的设计实现了在线注册的功能,您只需要在网上注册并提交,您的信息就会直接发送至校长的邮箱,校长就可根据这些信息对您的孩子进行分班,做好开学前的准备。此外,待孩子入学后,我校的老师们会将每个学期的教学大纲和每周的上课内容发布在网站上,这其中还包括孩子们的回家作业。所以,只要您打开我校的网页,孩子所学的中文知识和回家作业就一目了然。我们希望通过这种网上公布的方式,让家长们更好的了解孩子们在校的学习情况,并督促孩子们在家坚持学中文。因为我们发现想要学好中文,每周两个小时的中文培训是远远不够的,培养孩子们对中文和中国文化的兴趣才是最关键的。我们希望通过老师和家长的共同努力,培养孩子们学习中文的兴趣。一旦孩子们有了自学的兴趣,那么学好中文就指日可待了。最为重要的是,如果家长有任何的反馈意见,您可填写并提交网上的反馈表来和我们的老师取得及时的联系和沟通。您的任何反馈信息,我们都将认真阅读,不胜感激。此外,我校的网站有一个特别的版块叫学生园地,这是一个绘画班小朋友们的展示空间,打开空间,您会发现一个五彩缤纷的世界。绚烂的色彩,不同的风格,孩子们用他们稚嫩的小手和丰富的想象力,勾勒出了他们眼中的美丽。有空时,家长朋友们,不妨常来看看,也许您的孩子的作品就在其中!

 

最后,感谢家长朋友们对这次培训的支持,你们的到来给了中文学校更多前行的力量,相信在校长,老师和家长朋友们共同的努力下,我们的学校会越办越好,成为伴随孩子们学习中文的乐园。

 

 

 

Tasmania Chinese school website training workshop report

In the age of internet and technology, in order to offer better service for our students and make things easier for their parents, Tasmania Chinese School set up its own website last year. Meanwhile, in order to guide parents to make full use of our school website and enhance the communication between parents and teachers, our school held a demonstration for the parents on 7th, May, 2011.

 

The workshop was demonstrated by Miss Han, who had taken part in the design of the school website, and it was held to introduce the function of the school website. First of all, parents can find most of the important information on the homepage, including mandarin classes introduction, school fee policy and school annual report. In addition, the history of our school and teachers’ introduction and background information are listed under relevant sections.

 

With the important information known, if you decide to come to our school or your kids would like to come, then the next step you need to do is to enroll. Our school website realized the online enroll function now, when you submit the required information online, the information would be sent to the principal through e-mail instantly. Then based on the information you have provided, the principal would choose the best class which would suit you or your kids and get the learning materials ready for use.

 

Later on, when you or your kids start to learn mandarin in our school, the school teachers would post the unit outline, teaching schedule and class activities of each week on the website, including the homework. Therefore, as long as you open our school website, you will find the information such as what the kids are learning in Chinese school and what is their homework are all there. Our school hopes that through the online posting function, we can let parents know better about what the kids are learning in our school so that parents can help the kinds study mandarin at home as well.

 

What we have found is that if you want to learn Mandarin well, the only two hours’ study in Chinese school is not enough; what’s more important is to cultivate kids’ interest to learn mandarin and Chinese culture. We hope to work together with parents to cultivate kids’ interest to learn mandarin, once they have the interest, the day when they can speak mandarin well will be not far away.

 

What worth mentioning is that if parents have any feedback or advice, you can submit this information online or leave a comment on the website.  Your advice and feedback will be treated seriously and highly appreciated. In addition, on the school website, there is a special section called student playground for kids learning drawing in our school. If you click the playground, a marvelous world will be in front of you. The world is full of beautiful colors and imagination. Kids are drawing the beauty in their eyes with their little hands. If you have time, dear parents, why not come to our school website, one of your kids’ masterpiece might be there.

 

Finally, many thanks go to the parents for your support. It is your support that is encouraging our school to become better and better. We believe that with the hard work of the principal, all the teachers and parents together, our school will become the happy garden for kids to learn Mandarin.

 

 

An Activity of Bargaining, 17 July 2010

No matter whether a business is large or small, bargaining is one important characteristic of transactions in China. There are full of wisdom and fun. Buyers and sellers have their own bottom lines and the goal of bargaining is win-win. Sellers want to sell the goods at the prices over their bottom lines and they always prepare room for the offers of buyers while buyers want to buy goods at the prices under their bottom lines and are always ready to argue on the prices. In fact, bargaining never fails to fascinate people and it can cultivate eloquence, broaden thinking and develop life skills.

Recently, our Chinese school held a “bargaining” activity. The passion of the students engaging with this activity indicated their interest in this culture. They used the language as they learned from the teachers. They learned a lot of common words and terms of bargaining as well as gained something materially. Some sold their second hand stuff at very good price, and others bought something they desired for only several cents. Of course, there were also students who got a loss in their “business”. They need to learn more! 
In this activity, our school provided a lot of “goods” and “money” for students to practise bargaining. Even the students of Grade one were attracted by the activity and felt so hard but so much fun to negotiate in Chinese.


一次讨价还价的活动

无论买卖大小,讨价还价是中国交易的一大特点。其中充满了智慧和乐趣。买卖双方各自拥有自己的底线,讨价还价的目标就是双赢。卖方要在自己的底线以上把东西卖出,并为买家准备好了还价的余地。买家要在自己的底线以下买到东西,对商品价格的辩论也是早有准备。其实,讨价还价乐趣很多而且可以锻炼口才、开拓思维、培养生存的能力。
我们中文学校最近就尝试着搞了一次“讨价还价”的活动。同学们兴致勃勃,积极参与的热情展示了他们对这种文化的喜爱。他们边学边用,不但学会了许多常用的讨价还价的用语,而且还颇有物质上的收获。有的同学把自己不需要的二手用品卖了个很好的价钱,有的同学用仅有的几分钱买到了自己想要的东西。当然也有赔了都不知道的“买卖”。需要继续学习呀!
在活动中,学校还准备了大量的物品和代币供学生模拟使用,连一年级的小朋友也乐此不疲地参与了一把买卖活动,体会了一下用中文“谈判”的不易和乐趣。
