中国驻阿德莱德总领馆一行访问威廉姆·莱特学校

        当地时间8月30日,中国驻阿德莱德总领事饶宏伟等一行五人在阿德莱德孔子学院中方院长相沂晓等陪同下,访问了南澳首所双语学校——威廉姆·莱特学校(William Light R-12 School)。
        该校校长琳达·理查森女士率三位副校长和学校汉语教师接待了访问团。双方互赠礼物,并进行了座谈会。
        理查森校长介绍了学校概况。威廉姆·莱特学校位于阿德莱德西南八公里外的西托伦斯市(West Torrens),是一所集小学、中学于一体的学校,共有400余名学生。学校非常重视多元文化教育,尤其是中国文化与汉语教学。该校于2015年正式成为阿大孔院下设孔子课堂,今年9月9日将举行孔子课堂揭牌仪式。值得一提的是,该校在11所申办中英双语学校的竞争中脱颖而出,获得了南澳州教育厅的资质认定,成为南澳州第一所中英双语学校。南澳州和中国山东省于1986年缔结了姐妹州省关系,中英双语学校的建设也将得到山东省教育厅的支持,山东省副省长夏耕将亲自为孔子课堂揭牌。理查森校长表示,他们对未来与山东省教师和学生的互访交流等合作机会充满期待。
        访问团在理查森校长的陪同下参观了学校的教学设施、图书馆和音乐课堂,并与学生们进行了交谈。饶宏伟总领事表示,中国驻阿德莱德总领馆非常重视这所即将投入运行的中英双语学校,这对促进中澳两国的教育交流、中澳文化的相互理解,以及为年轻人在全球化世界创造更多机遇等具有深远意义。他表示中国驻阿德莱德总领馆会全力支持该校发展。
        阿德莱德孔子学院方面也表示,会一如既往与威廉姆·莱特学校合作,通过派出汉语教师志愿者等多种方式支持他们的汉语教学和中国文化活动。

阿德莱德大学孔子学院积极促进南澳—山东姐妹校关系

        2016年8月11日,威海市第二实验小学访问团参观了南澳Galilee天主教学校 (Galilee Catholic School,即GCS)。早在4月份南澳校长团访华时,两校便有意于结成姐妹学校关系,共同成长发展。时隔4个月,在阿德莱德大学孔子学院的推动下,威海市第二实验小学开始了为期一天的回访之旅。阿德莱德大学孔子学院中方院长相沂晓及两位志愿者教师卢偲怡和王越也应邀参加了此次访问。
        Galilee天主教学校(GCS)是南澳州天主教教育局管辖下的一所涵盖小学和初中(1-7年级)阶段学校。南澳天主教教育局(CESA)目前在南澳拥有103所学校,共计学生48000人,占到整个南澳地区中小学教育资源的三分之一强。阿德莱德大学孔子学院多年来一直与南澳天主教教育局保持友好的合作关系。
        访问伊始,校长Anthony及在校职工对威海市第二实验小学访问团的到来表示了热烈欢迎。随后,Anthony借助“照片墙”对GCS的教学宗旨和校园建设作了详细介绍,使访问团对学校有了大致的了解。随后,访问团在十几名学生的带领下,参观了学校的校园和教学设施。GCS主张将学生纳入校园环境的建设,从而培养学生与自然、社会相处的能力。在参观过程中,学生亲手种植的蔬菜、饲养的小动物都给访问团留下了深刻的印象。参观之余,两所学校的小朋友一起在操场上踢足球、做“老鹰捉小鸡”的游戏,欢快的身影在阳光下绽放出勃勃生机。
        夕阳西下,访问团与GCS师生依依不舍地互道再见。通过一天的访问参观,两所学校加深了对彼此的了解,为未来姐妹学校关系的缔结奠定了良好的基础。
