首届IB高中毕业典礼上的讲话

各位同学、各位老师、各位家长:

Dear all,


大家好!

Good afternoon.

?

今天我们在这里隆重举行同文部首届高中生毕业典礼,这将成为江南燕园的一个重要历史性时刻。

Today we are gathered to celebrate the graduation of our first high school cohort from the Tongwen Division. This is a historic moment for our school.


作为学校的创校校长,我很高兴,也很荣幸,可以见证你们三年来的成长。同样,你们也共同书写了学校这三年以来的点滴故事。三年前开学的场景仿佛还历历在目!全校师生当时都挤在弘毅楼上课办公,校园的大部分区域还都是一片工地。时间过得可真快,一转眼,你们都要毕业了。

As the founding Superintendent, I am very glad and honored to have witnessed your growth for the past three years. You have contributed to making our school what it is today. I could still remember three year ago when our school first opened, all of our students and teachers were crammed in the Hongyin Building; most of our campus was still under construction. Time flies, now, you are going to graduate.


有什么样的教育,就会有什么样的未来;有什么样的年轻人,未来就会有什么样的希望。正是胸怀着对这样一个好教育的追求和梦想,我们聚集在这里,通过融合中国传统文化及IB全人教育理念,打造了一所中国人自己的国际学校——江南燕园。此生,我们注定有一个交集,就是在这里,我们打开了一扇窗,而你们是那个看着窗外风景的人。今天,你们就要毕业了,悄然走过了独立成人的年龄,肩负着对自己、对家庭、对社会的责任,去寻找更广阔、更美好的风景。

Education is everything to the future, just like you, the young people decide how the future looks like. It is with the pursuit and dream of good education that we are gathered here to build a school integrating Chinese traditional culture with IB holistic educational philosophy. They say it’s destiny that our paths cross here. Today is your graduation day, which means you are now at the age of independence. With the commitment to your dreams, your family and the community at large, you now begin a new journey!


这三年来,我们哭过、笑过、成功过、迷茫过,但不管我们每个人走过的三年是否完美,学校都将永远感谢和铭记每一位给学校机会的学子、每一位给学校信任的家长以及每一位为学生成长付出的老师和员工。

In past three years, we have had laughter, tears, ups and downs. No matter what, the school appreciates and remembers every student, parent and teacher here forever, who have given us opportunity, trust and dedication.


在你们作为开元棋牌接入_开元棋牌怎么赢钱_开元棋牌机器人第一批走出校门的高中毕业生即将离校之际,我想送你们一句话:做最好的自己。
You are the first cohort to graduate from PKUES (Jiaxing). Upon your graduation, I would like to give you one piece of advice, be your best self.


长期以来,我们的社会被一种根植内心的功利式审美绑架,即一个人能够得到多少爱、欣赏和认同,取决于他有多优秀。你优秀,我亲近你,否则,我就冷落你;你优秀,我就认可你,否则,我就贬低你。优秀的程度,定义了我们的价值,也决定了我们相互对待的方式。而在这种土壤里长出来的优秀,不见得能够让我们有成功的事业,更不一定有幸福的人生。我们要学会接纳真实不完美的自己,回归本真,做最好的自己。在座的父母也一样,我们要接纳真实的孩子,每个孩子都会有自己与众不同的禀赋,关键是给他们自信,帮助他们拥有和养成坚毅的品格,去争取各自的成功,做最优秀的自己。

For a long time, our society has been abducted by a utilitarian concept deeply entrenched in our belief, that is, the amount of love, appreciation and recognition that one is able to get depends on their personal excellence. If you could demonstrate excellence as such, I will be close to you, otherwise, I leave you out in the cold. If you were excellent, I will recognize you, otherwise, I belittle you. The so called personal excellence defines our values and determines how we treat each other. However, excellence of this kind does not guarantee a successful career, nor does it promise a happy life. We must learn to understand who we are, accept it and try to become our best self.?The same goes for the parents. Accept your child as they are. Each child is unique.?The key is to build up their confidence, help them develop a strong character, encourage to strive for their own success and become their best self.


如何做最好的自己呢?我有三点建议。

How to be your best self? I have three suggestions.


第一,让自己更坚毅。

Firstly, be gritty.


最近一段时间,华为和任正非一直被刷屏,全世界都在关注华为的生死!我发自内心地觉得任正非是中国企业家的楷模,是中华民族的脊梁!当然,各行各业成功的人士不仅是任正非一个!他们为什么可以获得非凡的成就呢?

Recently, the news of Huawei and Mr. Ren Zhengfei has swept across our nation. I personally believe that Mr. Ren is the model of Chinese entrepreneurs. Surely, there are many successful businessmen like him from all all walks of life. The question is, how do they achieve such exceptional success?


美国宾夕法尼亚大学心理学教授安杰拉—达克沃思通过研究发现,坚毅的品质对成功起到了关键性的作用。我记得有一次偶然遇到iGEM项目组的同学,他们告诉我要在实验室守夜,因为要得到实验的结果。我相信,要取得一个好成绩,项目组的同学都需要付出连续许多日日夜夜的努力。长期坚持,去为了自己的兴趣和目标,赢得一个好的结果,这就是坚毅。

Research by Professor Angela Duckworth from the University of Pennsylvania has found that grit is the key to success. I still remember the night that I ran into some students in the iGEM group. They told me they were going to stay up all night in the lab in order to obtain the results. I could only imagine how many days and nights they had spent on this project to achieve success. Fight for your passion and stick to your goals until you make it, that is what we call being gritty.


我们总在问,到底是选择重要,还是努力重要,却一直忽略了一个东西,那就是坚毅。在不确定、高变化的时代,选择会变,努力不一定有效,但是如果有坚毅的品格,就总有机会成功。

We keep asking which is more important, making good choices or trying hard? But there is one thing we forget, grit. In times of uncertainties and changes, choices could be changed, and trying hard might not be enough. However, be gritty, and you will make it eventually.


成长的前提是你要有“成长心态”,即相信你自己真的可以改变,从这一点上来说,很多人不是输在努力,而是输在不相信努力。

The prerequisite of growth is you must have the mindset, which means you believe you can change. From this point of view, I could say that the reason why most people fail is because they do not believe that making great efforts could lead to a good result.


高中的三年马上就要结束了,我相信每位同学心里都有一份自己的毕业答卷。多一份努力,一定会多一份收获。从自己及周边同学的改变和进步上,大家一定能体会和认同我说的观点,拥有坚毅的品格可能会让自己改变更多,进步更大。

As you graduate from high school, I believe you all get the result based on how much effort you have invested. No pain, no gain. Look at your classmates and the progress you have made, you will understand what I am talking about. Being gritty could enable you to change for the better.


第二,让自己的内心更强大。

Secondly, be strong inside.


IB十大育人目标中提到了敢于冒险、心胸宽广、善于反思、有原则等,这些都和你是否有强大的内心有关。

In the IB learner profile, we can see the wordings like risk-takers, open-minded, reflective and principled. All of these have a connection to being strong inside.


要拥有强大的内心,首先你需要具备的是自信。更深地了解自己,更清楚地看到自己、接纳自己,才会更有自信,才能更好地改变自己。这里可以分享一下我自己成长的心得。我觉得,我的成长很大程度得益于我根植内心的自信,相信自己可以做到!这或许也是遗传的吧。在我父亲成长的年代,有过一段坎坷的人生道路。他从杭州名牌高中毕业后,就来到了当年的边远山区,没有固定工作,到了社会的最底层。可是自始至终,父亲都没有怨天尤人,依旧积极正向地生活着。父辈坚强而乐观的人生经历一直激励着我,我的内心总有一种自信,相信自己可以从大山中走出来。的确我也做到了。从大山,经过自己的努力,我从一名普通的讲台教师走到今天,为追寻好教育在北京打拼了快三十年。
To be strong inside, first you must have self-confidence.?You need to know yourself and accept who you are, then you will have self-confidence and know how to make changes. Here, I want to share my own story. I believe a large part of what I have achieved today can be attributed to self-confidence. Such personality runs in my family. My father suffered a rough life experience. He went to do physical labor in rural areas after graduating from high school. No job security, no social status, my father was at rock bottom. Still, he never complained. In my memory, he was always positive and strong. He believed things could change for the better. My father’s strength and optimism have shaped my beliefs. I always believed that I could find a way out of poverty and I made it. I have strived for the dream to seek for the good education for almost thirty years in Beijing. Here I am, I made it.


其次我们需要的是定力,这是一个佛教用语。世人学成一门技艺,成就一项事业,无不靠定力也。有定力,方可耐得住寂寞,经得起挫折;有定力,方可博览群书,潜心着述,有所成就;有定力,方可面对强敌,从容镇静,临危不乱,后发制人;无定力,便会为浮名近利所诱惑,被本能欲望所驱使,心神旁骛,意不在学;或半途而废,或止于小成;无定力,便吃不得苦,耐不得劳,临阵对敌,神慌招乱,未战而心先败。那么定力自何而来?须有坚、诚、恒之心,有此心,方能有大定。其实人的成就取决于两点:天赋*努力=技能;技能*努力=成就。天赋是指,当你投入努力的时候,你的技能能够得到多快的提升。成就是指,当你努力运用获得的技能时所产生的结果。其实大家的智商并没有太大的区别,更大的区别是努力和持续改进的程度。

The second thing we need is composure and concentration.?This is from Buddhism. As long as you are concentrated, you could persist in one thing and overcome any setback. In fact, people's achievements depend on two points: talent * effort = skills; skills * efforts = achievements. Talent is how soon your skills can be improved when you make effort. Achievement is the result of your efforts to use the acquired skills. In fact, there is not much difference in the IQ for everyone, but effort and persistence do make a difference.


第三,要让自己的内心更丰富宽广。

Thirdly, be knowledgeable and open-minded.


感同身受,是情商很重要的部分。胸怀世界,尊重了解不同的文化、不同的风俗习惯和文明,才能让我们的内心更加丰富和博大。现在的世界变得更加多元和不确定,对多元文化和社会的理解包容,可以让我们的内心更加理性、客观和公正。对自己身边的亲人和同学朋友,要学会接纳不同的人和事,不要简单地把自己的观点和意志强加给别人。

To be empathetic is a vital component of EQ. Respecting different cultures, customs and civilizations can help us become knowledgeable and open-minded. To survive in a changing and diverse world, we need to cultivate the ability to embrace difference. Only in this way, can we think and act in a reasonable, objective and just manner. Learn to accept the various kinds of people and things, never force your own ideas onto others.


懂得感恩,也是内心丰富的一个重要指针。怨恨和不满,只会让心灵贫乏。古语有云,滴水之恩,当涌泉相报。知恩图报,才能让自己内心充盈,才能有幸福感;学会感恩父母、感恩师长、感恩同学、感恩点滴帮助和遇见,才会有感恩的生活和幸福的人生。

To be grateful is also an important indicator of a knowledgeable mind. As the old saying goes, a little give, a lot of returns. We must learn to be grateful to our parents, teachers and classmates, then we could have a happy life.


行万里路破万卷书,也是丰富我们内心、博大我们的心胸所必须的要素。在座的IB老师们就是很好的案例。在美国,许多人都觉得中国很危险、很贫穷,我们的形象还停留在上世纪六七十年代。老师们来了中国之后,一定已经感受到了中国改革开放这些年来的巨大变化。相比之下,我们的老师,对多元文化会有更加丰富和准确的理解和认知。同样,新疆问题,可以追溯到民族融合的历史;台湾问题,也会有各派的观点和理由。出去留学也是如此。核心,还是要放眼世界,体验不同文明,胸怀天下大义,为人类谋未来幸福。

Last but not least, reading and traveling are also necessary to broaden our horizon. Some of our IB teachers here can attest to this statement. In the US, there are still lots of people who think China is poor and dangerous, like what you would see from those 1960s image. I must say that, now you have lived in China, you should have seen the enormous changes because of the reform and opening-up policy. Our teachers, being well-read and well-traveled, possess the ability to appreciate diversity. Different people will have different views on the same topic, like the Xinjiang issue and the Taiwan issue. The main point is to have a global perspective, experience different civilizations and have the heart to care for the well-being of all humanity.


所以,拥有坚毅的品格、强大的内心和宽广的胸怀,才能赢得未来。

In conclusion, be firm and persistent, be strong inside, be knowledgeable and open-minded. These are the qualities that will take us to a bright future.?


最后,我谨代表董事会和学校,向三年来对我们给予理解、包容与支持的各方力量表示最衷心的感谢。

Lastly, on behalf of the board and school,??I’d like to express my heartfelt appreciation to all of you who have given us understanding and support for the past three years.


毕业,是千百万个夏天的故事,千百万个人、千百万个不同的夏天,相同的只是告别。同学们,告别昨天,那个青葱懵懂的自己;告别今天,这个承载了三年笑与泪的校园;拥抱明天,所有的无限可能与希望!

Farewell students, to your old selves and the lovely campus, say hi to the unlimited possibilities and hopes!


祝大家好运,记得常回家看看!谢谢!

I wish you all the best. This is your home. Its door will always be open to you. Thank you!
