陽春布德澤,萬物生光輝。時有落花至,遠隨流水香。雖然還有些許冬日的寒意,但草木夾雜著泥土的氣息撲面而來,告訴我們:寒冬已過,春日來臨。上海美達菲的新老學子們也齊聚校園,共同迎接新學期的到來,開啟一段新的人生旅程。

Although we can still feel the cold of winter, the grass and flowers tell us that winter is over and spring has already come. Since last week, all the old and new students gather in this beautiful campus, welcoming the arrival of the new semester and preparing for a new life journey.

 

開學第一周的生活,相比寒假而言更加忙碌和緊張,卻又充滿秩序、井井有條。周一,迎著清晨的第一抹陽光,老師和同學們齊聚操場,參加了新學期第一次升旗儀式。

Compared to the winter break, the first week seemed to be busy, but at the same time, it was full of orderliness. On Monday, all the teachers and students gathered on the playground to attend the flag-raising ceremony for the first time in the new semester.


高二IB班蔣樂

在學生代表的主持下,高二IB班的蔣樂同學以三好學生的身份進行了國旗下講話。為了倡導同學們提高自我管理和約束能力,培養自主學習的技能,同時營造良好的校園風氣,蔣樂同學用流利的英語,強調了學生行為規范的重要性,也以自身的行動為同學們做了良好的榜樣。

Hosted by students representatives, G11 IB student Jiang Le gave a speech to teachers and students as a merit student around the topic "discipline code". In order to advocate students to improve self-management ability, cultivate their independent learning skills, and create a positive school atmosphere, she emphasized the importance of student code of conduct and used herself as a role model.

發言稿
Dear teachers and peers, good morning. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the school for giving me the honor to speak as a merit student here. I would also like to thank Director Li, the Student Development Center for her care and help, as well as my teachers who taught and cultivated me. The topic of my speech today is the relationship between learning and discipline. As is known to all, learning is the most important task for students, and discipline is the necessary condition and effective method to ensure the orderly progress of learning and improve learning efficiency. A man without discipline is like a kite with a short string. He may indulge himself at that time and never fly high again. People who make a success must be those who strictly follow the discipline to restrain themselves. Students who do not abide by discipline cannot be regarded as excellent students. If the class discipline is chaotic, for example, students can talk freely during the lessons, can be late or absent at will, then the atmosphere of learning in that class will not be strong enough, this feeling will affect every student, and everyone will gradually lose the motivation to move forward in such an environment. Students will gradually extinguish the self-motivated. Therefore, students who do not obey disciplines will not only affect their learning progress but also destroy their class and the overall atmosphere of unity and progress in their school. This is what we cannot allow.

 

王校長國旗下講話

接著,王校長發表了開學典禮的致辭,對新老師和同學的加入表示了熱烈的歡迎,也對12年級收到來自英、美、加等國66封錄取及預錄取的美達菲學子表示了祝賀。

Then, Principal Wang gave a speech at the flag-raising ceremony, expressing a warm welcome to the new teachers and students, and congratulated the 12th graders who received 66 offers and conditional offers from the UK, US, Canada, and other countries all around the world.

王校長從三個方面對美達菲學子們提出了幾點希望:1. 加強體育運動;2. 積極參加課外活動;3. 放下手機,拿起課本。在這三方面,學校也提供了全方位的支持。這一學期,學校引進了一批優秀的青年才俊,增加了社團活動的多樣性,課外活動的豐富性,更加完善了學生學習及日常行為規范的管理制度,同時也大力鼓勵美達菲學子們積極參加各項學科競賽。

Principal Wang also put forward several hopes to the MacDuffie students from three aspects: 1. Strengthen sports; 2. Actively participate in extracurricular activities; 3. Put down the mobile phone and pick up the textbook. In order to comprehensively provide support for students, this semester, the school has introduced a group of outstanding young talent teachers, increased the diversity of club activities, enriched extracurricular activities, and improved the management system of student learning and daily behavior. Simultaneously, Shanghai MacDuffie also strongly encourages students to actively participate in various discipline competitions.

為了鼓勵同學們全方位的發展,營造良好的校園風氣,學校對上學期各方面突出的同學進行了評優,分別評出了團體獎和個人獎,并為這些同學舉行了頒獎典禮,希望他們能夠再接再厲,也希望這些美達菲學子能為其他同學做出表率。

In order to encourage the students' all-round development and create a healthy and positive atmosphere, the school gave awards to groups and students with outstanding performance and held a ceremony for them, hoping that they can make persistent efforts and keep moving forward in the new semester, as well as be role models for other students.
