House System at WES丨探秘WES学院制——你来自哪个星球?

What do you know about House System? Perhaps it’s something new to you. However, we believe that you’ll become enlightened once we give you a hint by mentioning Harry Potter series and Hogwarts.

也许对一些人来说,House System(学院制)是一个很陌生的名词。但相信只要提到《哈利波特》,提到霍格沃茨魔法学校,你就会豁然开朗,茅塞顿开。


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was divided into four houses, each bearing the last name of its founder: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. At the beginning of each school year, the magical Sorting Hat is placed on each new student’s head during the Sorting ceremony. Houses at Hogwarts were both the living and learning communities for its students. The houses compete throughout the school year, by earning and losing points for various activities. The house with the most points wins the House Cup.

霍格沃茨共分四个学院,分别是格兰芬多,赫奇帕奇,拉文克劳和斯莱特林,新生入学第一件事情就是戴上分院帽,分院帽会根据你的性格来判断你该属于哪一个学院。四个学院皆有其代表颜色与动物。学生在霍格沃茨学习期间,每项杰出的表现都会为他的学院获得分数;相反每一次的违规,就会令学院被扣分。到了学年终,最高分的那个学院就可赢得学院杯,邓布利多校长会在年终宴会上宣布学院杯的归属。


What is House System

The house system is a tradition that began over 150 years ago in British boarding schools in Commonwealth countries. The school is divided into subunits called ‘houses’ and each student is allocated to one house at the moment of enrollment.

学院制源自英国,每个学院由不同部门、不同年级的师生组成,并进行合理的男女、年龄大小搭配,有各自的院徽,有学生组织,还有导师团队。


Why House System

The House System will bring together students across grade levels at WES. It encourages cooperation and friendly competition within a supportive environment and instils in the students determination, creativity, collaboration and an awareness of the importance of community.

通过学院制,我们希望建立全校师生大融合的良好校园学习与生活氛围。学院制鼓励学生在学校支持的环境中开展合作和良性竞争,并让学生具有决心、合作、创意及社区意识。


How to Make it Happen

The entire school (students, teachers & staff) is divided into subunits or groups called ‘HOUSES’.

我们将所有学生、老师和员工分成几个团队,一个团队就是一个学院。

Each person is allocated to ONE HOUSE.

每个人被分配至一个学院。

 

These Houses will be mentored by teachers as House Leaders.

每个学院都有老师担任学院院长,为学院提供指导。

 

Every house will have students leaders called House Captains and House Vice-Captains.

每个学院都有学生担任正副学院队长


House at WES

Our students and teachers are allocated to four houses, each having its own name, color and leaders.

在长沙玮希国际学校,我们将全校师生分配至四个学院,每个学院拥有自己的名字、颜色和导师。

Learning not only happens from a textbook but happens from classmates, or a new friend. It happens when we study, work, talk, play, share, reflect, argue… Houses may compete with one another at sports and maybe in other ways (art, dance, math, music, science, etc.) thus providing a focus for group loyalty.

学习不限于课本,在与不同班级或年级的同学交往、游戏、分享、思考、辩论的过程中,我们都能学到有益的东西。对于学习以外的活动(体育、艺术、舞蹈、数学、音乐、科学等),我们以学院制的形式开展,让学生有更多朋友,让他们能在不同的学生群体中学会交往、学会互助,以培养领导力和沟通协作能力。

House members will get house points for participating or winning house activities. Moreover, teachers will be authorized to reward extra points to students based on their behaviors in and around the school.

通过参加学院活动或在活动中取得名次,学院成员可以获得积分。另外,科任老师将有权根据学生在校内校外的表现情况给予额外的积分奖励。
