时光匆匆,新学期的脚步越来越近,协和厦门校区的七年级学子在这个特殊的假期中迎来了为期三天的暑期训练营。

Time flies, and the new semester is getting closer and closer. There is a three-day summer training camp for Grade 7 students of Xiehe   Xiamen Campus during this special vacation.

英语阅读活动

此次七年级英语活动首先由初中部外方副主任Mr Michael Kay和外教Mr Andy Batman老师向学生们介绍关于英语阅读的相关内容。之后,外教Mr Andy Batman和Mr. Conor McGinley老师带领孩子们开展了丰富有趣的英语活动。学生们积极地回答着外教老师提出的问题,欢声笑语充满了整个剧场。对所有七年级的学生来说,这无疑是一次丰富而难忘的经历。

The Grade 7 English activity started with the presentation of the future learning of English Reading by Mr Michael Kay, the deputy head of Middle School and Mr Andy Bateman, the expat teacher. After that, Mr Andy Batman and Mr Conor McGinley led the students to carry out rich and engaging English activities. The students actively answered the questions raised by the expat teachers, and laughter filled the theater. This was certainly an enriching and memorable experience for all the G7 students

体育活动

本次破冰活动, 整个7年级的学生,打乱班级单位,混合编队。同学们以名字的首字母为编队,参与到Dodge ball的竞赛当中。同时在比赛中,所有的游戏都需求学生结合同学们的姓名进行。本次破冰活动,打破学生之前陌生的隔阂,互相认识到自己班或其他班的新同学,促使新7年级这个团体共同成长。

In this ice-breaking event, the entire Grade 7 students used the first letter of their English names as formations to participate in the Dodge Ball competition. During the event, all games required students to combine the names of their classmates. This ice-breaking activity breaks the unfamiliar barriers between students, and helps know each other in their own class or other classes, and also promotes the growth of the New Grade 7 group.

军训会操

看似简单的动作,却也如此复杂,每一个动作都有严格的要求,而且要经过反复地训练才能达到整齐划一。在教官们的悉心指导下,同学们也逐渐地掌握了动作的要领,慢慢地进入了军训的状态。到了最后一天的会操,各个班级都交出了令人满意的答卷。同学们精神饱满,身姿挺拔,透露出一股坚强的意志。在各班在教官的指示下,以整齐有力的脚步伐,伴随嘹亮坚定的口号声,开始了会操表演,向在场的所有成员展现自己的训练成果,给自己的3天的军训生活画上一个圆满的句号。

Seemingly simple actions require massive training in order to achieve its standard and unity of the group. Under the careful guidance of the instructors, the students gradually mastered the essentials of the action, and slowly entered the state of military training. On the last day of the meeting, all classes handed in satisfactory answers. The students arefull of spirit and strong will. Under the command of the instructor, each class started the parade with neat and powerful steps, accompanied by loud and clear slogans, showing their training results to all members on the scene.

三天的训练营虽然短暂,但是所有参加训练营的协和学子都表现出了蓬勃的朝气与良好的精神风貌,相信这是他们迈向新学年的坚实一步,也是向着未来前进的新起点,相信每一位学生都能在接下去的一年收获丰硕的成果。

Although the three-day training camp was short, students who participated in the training camp showed vigorous vigor and good spirit. I believe this is a solid step for them to move towards the new school year and a new starting point for the future. I believe every student can harvest fruitful results in the next year.
