The following is a speech by Kang Xiaofeng, director of student activities at CWA Shihua School:
Good morning, parents and friends. I’m very happy to have the opportunity to share with you the school I work in, Shihua school. Many of you may not have heard of this school. You may have heard of UWC. My speech today is mainly to share with you why UWC wants to create a new school and what it has done to implement these ideas.
Above us are members of the Council of the school, Mr. Wang Jiapeng, Mr. Wang Yi and Mr. Zhao Bin. They founded UWC in Changshu six years ago. There are 18 schools in the world. They all have a common mission. The common mission is to make students become such people who can contribute to the world peace and sustainable development through education. This is the reason Is the mission applicable to all students? You can think about it.
Another reason is that UWC Changshu has made great achievements in running the school. It is facing the enrollment of students from all over the world. In this case, the number of Chinese students entering into the UWC in Changshu is not very large. Therefore, when many students want to study in the UWC but have no way to enter, our chairman’s team wants to create a new school, in order to give us the opportunity to study in the middle school Chinese students can provide IB education with UWC quality, but at the same time, it can meet the characteristics of Chinese students. To carry out our own mission, this is the speech at the opening ceremony at the beginning of our school. We can see that in addition to the president, Mr. Wang Jiapeng, Wang Yi, Zhao Bin and our Chinese president an Ying, the president of UWC and the president of Tsinghua high school are also involved in the preparation of such a new school.
Our school is also in Changshu, which is very close to UWC. It is on the west side, and we are on the east side. The straight-line distance is only 5 kilometers, so we are sister schools. This is our school campus. Today’s speech will give you a brief introduction through five parts: curriculum, teachers, student source, enrollment and student management. Our course has just been shared by many predecessors or previous speakers. Our school adopts the IBDP course system, but we have not really entered the DP stage. We have a SP stage course, so today we will spend more time to help you introduce how to help students lay a good foundation and make progress smoothly Into the DP stage of learning.
Just now Mr. Wang said that IB is a cut. There are six groups of subject courses and three core courses. There are many optional courses in the six groups of subject courses. For example, a classmate may say that I am partial to science. In addition to his required Chinese, English and mathematics, he can choose the other two courses from experimental science, physical chemistry or biology In the sixth subject, you can choose another subject to help the student customize his or her own course plan as personalized as possible.
IB such six groups of subjects are layered, there are high-level courses and ordinary level courses, the difficulty of the two courses is different, each student must have three high-level courses, three are standard level, students according to the level of ability of the course, to maximize the choice of a suitable course, in line with their own characteristics of such a course.
