2017年3月29日,长沙玮希国际高中(CWIH)项目正式启动。祝贺长沙玮希国际学校!

 

7 years ago we started with a vision – a vision to set up a school that would help our students to become internationally minded, lifelong learners. Now, 7 years on, we have been supported by an enthusiastic, curious, open-minded public who is ready to share in our new development. On the road to providing the best international education in Changsha, competitive with the rest of the world, we will offer a challenging curriculum with the goal of preparing our students to thrive in university and beyond.

7年前,我们怀着美好的愿景建立了玮希国际学校:让学生成为具有国际视野的终身学习者。7年后的今天,热情、开放且具有好奇心的家长、朋友们来到现场,分享玮希学校成长的喜悦。我们未来的目标是建立长沙最好的国际教育基地,并使其能与世界各国的国际教育相媲美。我们将提供丰富且具有挑战性的高中课程,力求让学生能在大学或在追求更高等教育时还能保持优秀。

 

The main leaders of Changsha County Government, Changsha Economic and Technical Development Zone (CETZ) and Changsha Municipal Education Bureau, as well as the representatives from different enterprises in CETZ, attended the launch ceremony. Mr. Limin CHANG, member of Party Working Committee and Deputy Director of Administrative Committee of CETZ, awarded the CWIH plaque to our principal Mr. Andrew Britnell. Mr. Chaoqun ZENG, Secretary of Party Working Committee of CETZ and Secretary of Changsha County Committee gave a speech for the launch of the CWIH program.

Our special guest Mrs. Lan SHI, Chief Admission Officer of MIT, shared her experience in selecting students for elite American universities –  to make the children healthy, kind and wise. Mrs. Lan SHI’s speech has struck a responsive chord in many parents. As the Chief Admission Officer of MIT, Mrs. Lan SHI hopes to build the connection between advanced international education in Hunan, and even in central China, with quality higher education in the USA, through CWA.

特邀嘉宾——美国麻省理工学院教育委员会中国区主席、中国总面试官石岚女士也进行了发言,与家长、老师和同学分享了美国名校选拔学生的标准——培养身体健康、心有仁爱、头脑智慧的孩子。石岚女士的分享引起了许多家长的共鸣。作为麻省理工学院的中国区总面试官,石岚女士希望未来通过长沙玮希国际学校,建立湖南乃至华中地区高端国际教育与美国优质高等教育的链接。

 

Mr. Jinbo XIE, our strategic partner of CWIH program, shared his idea about how Zoomin would cooperate with CWIH in the future in helping students apply for top overseas universities. As a DIY mentor with 16 years of experience in overseas study application, Mr. XIE has trained more than 16,000 students in 16 years, providing them with creative, passionate and efficient guidance.

玮希国际高中项目的战略合作伙伴,ZoomIn 总裁谢劲波先生也上台分享了他的团队在未来帮助玮希学子申请顶级海外大学的方法和经验。作为一名拥有16年留学申请规划经验的DIY导师,谢劲波先生16年来培训超过16000位学员,为他们提供了创新、激情、有效的升学指导。

 

Following the award ceremony, Principal Andy introduced the CWIH program to the audience. With most of our lessons taught by highly qualified foreign expert teachers, we are in the privileged position of being the only true international school able to offer a full programme of IGCSE courses, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (opening in 2019) and A Levels. Our small classes create a stimulating teaching environment where students are stretched and encouraged to develop confidence as independent, internationally minded, critical thinkers. This means we can deliver lessons and career guidance with unrivalled expertise in Hunan.

授牌仪式后,Andy校长为学生、家长及来宾们介绍了玮希国际高中项目:大部分课程由资深外国专家教师授课,玮希将成为长沙唯一一所能够真正提供完整国际课程的学校,如:IGCSE课程,IB课程(2019年开始)和A-level课程。小班授课的课程设置为学生提供了一个良好的教学环境,鼓励培养学生在独立性、国际化视野、批判性思维方面的自信心。这意味着,玮希的教学质量和职业规划指导在湖南地区具有不可比拟的优势。
