Welcome!

欢迎!

It is a great pleasure and huge privilege for me and my wife Barbara to welcome you to Merchiston International School, Shenzhen. We are both excited to play our part in the development of this new school. From 1998 to 2018, I was the Headmaster of Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh and so we bring with us our enthusiasm for everything that the name Merchiston stands for plus the excitement of playing an important role in the ‘sister school’ located in Shenzhen, this amazing, cosmopolitan, cultural, modern, young city in China.

我与我的妻子Barbara今天非常有幸,可以在此与您沟通,诚邀您加入深圳曼彻斯通城堡学校。我们非常期待能为这所新学校献出自己的一份力。自1998年至2018年,这20年间,我担任母校爱丁堡曼彻斯通城堡学校校长一职。因此我对曼彻斯通代表的所有充满感情与热情,我们热切地希望能为深圳曼彻斯通的发展做出自己的贡献。分校坐落在深圳,这座充满着中华文明的国际大都市 。

Since opening in 2018, MIS has already established high academic expectations, an excellent ethos and identity in Shenzhen, blending the very best of the east and west, with a real belief in the pastoral care and pupil support of every student. We believe in two partnerships: the first between the staff and the students in and out of the classroom and secondly, the relationship between the school and the parents of each student at MIS.

2018年开学以来,深圳分校已经建立起了非常高的学术标准,与极佳的校园文化,吸取了东西方教育的精华,真正关切每一位学生的成长与德育关怀。作为教育者,我们相信两个关系对于学校发展至关重要——师生在课堂内外的关系、家长和学校之间的关系。

So, what do we think is so special and unique about Merchiston International School, Shenzhen and how do we achieve this?

那么深圳曼彻斯通城堡学校的特点是什么呢?我们是如何实现这些特色?

Essentially, what our highly qualified members of staff are trying to do every day at MIS is concentrate on the development of the whole person; developing the mind of each student within the classroom through our first class international curriculum plus developing the character and personality of every student. We fulfil this part within the co-curricular activities outside the classroom everyday using our state-of-the-art school facilities and campus, in addition to our approach to boarding.

学校的精英教师团队们,每日辛苦努力,只为实现对学生的全方位教育;通过对国际化课程的一流传授,开发每个学生脑中的智慧与潜能;与此同时,我们也将积极培养学生独特的个性与优秀的品性。我们如何做到全人教育?除了课程教育之外,我们每一天都在顶尖的教学设备与优质的校园环境内,为孩子们提供丰富的课外活动。

This wonderful way of life, every day, inside and outside the classroom, gives every student the chance to succeed and to feel a sense of belonging to the community. Essentially what we are trying to do is “that confidence thing”; we are trying to find those hidden nuggets of ability that we all have and develop them. What we want is for every student to get that sense of “Yes, I did that well” and I don’t mind where a student is saying this as long as it is being said somewhere on the campus every day. Ultimately it is that “confidence thing” that will then set each young person up for life and help them discover their place in the world.

课堂内外全方位高质量的教育,为每一位学生提供了成长与成功的空间和机会,并培养了学生对学校这个大家庭的归属感。但根本上我们的目标是帮助学生发掘其内在的自信心,我们努力发掘学生自身的潜能,并加以培养发展。我们真心地希望所有学生都能收获一种成就感,感觉自己做到了!且做得很好。我认为学校每日都应该充斥着这种鼓励的话语,最终学生的自信心会帮助他们在生活中成长成人,并找到自己在这个世界上的位置。

I am a great believer in saying certain catch phrases to help guide the students on a daily basis. Sayings like, “Look after each other; strive to be the best version of yourself you can possibly be; try your hardest and make the most of your talents.” But equally the students have to learn that they are not always going to come first and be the best. Thus, in that area, we spend a lot of time on one of my favourite mantras, “bouncebackability”, developing that resilience to keep trying, if at first, we don’t succeed. 

我相信,一些朗朗上口的至理名言,可以在每日启发学生方面发挥一定的作用。比如“照顾彼此,关爱他人”,“努力成为更好的自己”,“竭尽全力,发掘自身的光和热,发掘自身潜能”。但同时,学生也需要清楚这个事实,那就是自己不一定每次都可以做到最好,或者成为第一名。因此,针对这一点,我经常教育我的学生们,培养自身的“弹性”,培养自己勇于尝试的勇气和不断尝试的韧性。如果第一次尝试失败了,也没有关系。

As a school, we also have a deep belief in the importance of notable values such as courtesy, honour, humility, integrity and perseverance. These are real life skills; the school community always endeavours to echo these as these are indeed values for life.

作为学校的教育工作者,我们深知培养学生良好品性的重要性,比如要讲文明,懂礼貌,谦逊做人,诚信待人,坚持不懈。这些是重要的生活技能,学校所做的所有努力都旨在培养上述良好的品质,因为拥有这些品质,学生将终身受益。

We warmly welcome prospective families to explore our school either through the website, or by visiting our campus in Shenzhen. 

欢迎学生们和家长们通过网站或校园参观等各种方式,了解深圳分校的情况。
