Jackie

女校长

Hilary Phillips

Do you think robots are going to take over a world? 

你认为机器人可以接管这个世界吗?

I think now robots is not powerful enough to take over the world, but in the future, they will be better robots, it can be dangerous and to take over the world. A lot of jobs that human did will be taken over by robots.  

我认为现在的机器人还不足以称霸世界,但是在将来,他们会进化的更好,可能会很危险。机器人可以代替很多人类做的工作。

Jackie

女校长

Hilary Phillips

I think it is good robots are going to do some job, some jobs are very boring. So, what is important in this school is educating you to do the things robots can’t do, so all the skills of understanding people, working as a team, being creative, having original ideas, knowing what to do to make your ideas work. That’s the sort of things that is really important to us.

We do lots of creative subjects here.

我认为好的机器人可以替代人类完成一些工作,类似于一些很枯燥的工作。

所以,我们学校的理念是让你不被替代,我们想让你成为一个有创造力,理解他人,能和别人一起合作,能把自己的想法变成现实。我们认为这些事最重要的。 我们这里有很多有创造力的学科。

IT?  

像是IT这类的吗?

Jackie

女校长

Hilary Phillips

Yup, but more than IT, we do art, a lot of art, we have got really good design and technology room, I will show you, and we do good projects, and we are trying makes our art, and our design and technology, and our maths, and our English, because we don't believe things exist in a bubble, things exist alone, because everything in a life join together. So that subjects connect, so we are always looking for connections, because we think that is really important.

没错,不止是IT。我们有美术,有非常棒的设计室和出色的项目(project)。我们在试着把我们的美术、设计和技术、数学、英语融合在一起。因为我不相信成功仅存于泡沫,所有的一切都需要积累,所有的成功都是紧密相连的。所以所有的科目都是相关联的,我们认为把科目连接在一起时最重要的。

Chester

The father has the feeling like this is a very family like school, and very good care of the kids you have, They like the school very much.  

Jackie的爸爸很喜欢你们学校。

Also we are family and we are caring, but we are also academic, we believe that you can have a mix of those things, sometimes if you are just academic, you can be almost in a tunnel, are you are just being pushing and pushing. And we believed that if we are family, community, if we support each other properly, and you will help them with their ambition, to achieve really good things, but not the expense of everything else, to get a balance.

除此之外,我们是一个家庭会互相关心,但是我们也注重学术,我们希望学生是一个多元化的人。我们相信像一个家庭一样互相支持,会帮助孩子们完成他们的理想帮助他们实现。

Jackie

Jungle behind the shcool. part of the school?

学校后面的森林是学校的一部分吗?

It is part of the school, good place to play hide and seek, duty teacher in the jungle.

two rules, 1 rule always : be kind, because if you are kind, everything else follows; rule 2: you can go anywhere, but you must be able to hear the bell. We have a bell outside the school and we ring, and that’s the sign to comeback to start our lessons, you can go to play or talk to the chicken, tennis court, table tennis, but you have to be close enough to hear the bells, and when the bell rings, you stop what you were doing and come back, thats the rules work very well.

我们有两条规则,(RULE1) 我们永远的一条规则就是:善良。因为只要你善良的,其他的一切都会随之而来。 (RULE2)第二条规则就是:无论你去了哪里,你都必须听到钟声。我们在学校里会敲钟提醒学生回来上课,你可以去外面玩,去打乒乓球,去打网球,但是当钟声响起,你需要马上回来上课。

Chester

Jackie future school plans?

对于Jackie的未来学校你们有什么安排?

Future school is not a decision you can force, we have lots of staffs involved in their care and we talk a lot as a staff as a communication is the key thing, everybody gets to know the pupils, we discuss them and we exchange ideas, we start to get a picture of them, we keep records of their academic success, but also, we talk about how they are in a creative subjects, we look at what they do in the sport, are they joining in the music, and that helps us to get a picture and we know the senior schools well, so we know if you have a child that is tough, not aggressive, but ambitious like that, we can say that this school is good, quieter child, don't go there give them the ideas,  OPEN MIND, schools changes, not entirely, but the feel of the school can change.

你不可以强迫jackie对于之后学校的选择。我们有很多的老师会在照顾他们的同时交流并且了解每一个学生,了解学生的想法。我们会对学生们有一个大致的了解,会记录他们的学术成就,看看他们做什么运动,是不是喜欢音乐。我们会通过这些来判断一个学生的性格,如果他很聪明,雄心壮志,我们鼓励他们去这个学校。如果是安静一点的学生,我们会给他们不要去这些学校的建议。开放性的思想,学校不会完全的改变,但是学校给予学生的感觉会。

Ambitions of kids?

孩子们的未来的目标在哪?

Bigger Picture, Eton is not a school suitable for everybody, what is best for child for everybody, give you my opinion as a educator for 25 years,

总体来说,拿伊顿公学来举例子,伊顿公学并不是每个人都合适,我会用在教育行业25年的经验来给孩子们选择最适合他们的。

Ashdown House Prep school

学校简介


阿斯顿预备学校建于1843年,占地40英亩,是英国首屈一指的预备学校。距盖特威克机场约20分钟路程,到伦敦市中心约一小时路程。学校环境温馨舒适,充满友爱,强调善良和宽容。学校规模不大,师生比例很高,90%的学生至少学习一门乐器,并且学校从五年级就会开始为学生考GCSE做准备,因此很多学生都能升入英国各大名校。




深度访谈

尾声


有家长盛赞:Ashdown House在让孩子学习以及娱乐中找到了很完美的平衡。在学术方面,学校将一些孩子送去顶级的公学,如伊顿,惠灵顿,温切斯特。另外也会有一部分的家长选择让孩子去更加当地的学校,如国王学院,Eastbourne(伊斯堡学院),Benenden(博耐顿学校)。7年级的孩子会有机会在法国待上半个学期进行学习和交流。学生在课外的活动选择也很丰富,从管弦乐的演奏到学习普通话。学校最有趣的莫过于有一个名副其实的动物园。这或许就是学校被评为去年十大预备学校的原因吧。
