发布时间:2016/4/16 12:25:00

苏州工业园区外国语学校现在是一所经国际文凭组织(IBO)授权的国际学校,我校被许可于2016年9月起实施国际文凭大学预科项目(IBDP)。我校仅在15个月内就成功获得了IB国际学校的授权,我们为此感到无比自豪。

Suzhou Industrial Park Foreign Language School is now an authorized IB World School and has been given the green light to implement the IB Diploma Programme from September 2016. We are very proud to have attained the status of an IB World School within 15 months.


2016 年3月30日,国际文凭组织(IBO)验证访问团官员Kristi Pozon女士和Kennedy Bwanga先生莅临我校进行授权考察。IB国际部已为此次访问筹备数月。作为访问团领队的Pozon女士及其同事Bwanga先生都是资深的IB教师, 他们同时也是作为协调员,代表国际文凭组织就授权和评估来我校进行访问。他们在我校的考察为期三天,与不同部门的负责人或相关人员会谈,旨在向IB组织汇 报我校2016年9月的国际文凭大学预科项目(IBDP)的筹备工作是否已到位。

On 30th March 2016, the school welcomed Ms Kristi Pozon and Mr Kennedy Bwanga, members of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) school verification team for the proposed IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). This was a much-awaited moment for the school, especially the IB Division, and one that had been preceded by months of preparation. Ms Pozon, the team leader, and her colleague, Mr Kennedy Bwanga, are experienced IB teachers and coordinators who have represented the IBO on school visits for authorization and evaluation. They spent three days in the school, meeting up with the different stakeholders in order to be able to report on our readiness for the commencement of the IBDP in September 2016.

访 问首日,他们先与学校的董事长张永红女士、总校长葛翠兵先生、副校长李方华先生和IB国际部校长Joel Seow先生会谈,对学校的行政管理机构和学校实施IBDP课程的决策有了一个概要的了解。他们也借此机会肯定了学校为项目授权所付出的努力和决心。接 着,他们视察了一些实施IBDP项目所要求的硬件设施,包括科学实验室和图书馆。

On the first day, they met with the School’s Director, Ms Zhang, Principal Ge, High school Principal Oliver Li and IB Division Principal Joel Seow for an introductory session to understand the school administrative structure and the school’s decision to implement the programme. They took the opportunity to affirm the school’s efforts and its commitment to the programme. Subsequently, they inspected some of the mandatory IBDP facilities, including the science laboratories and the library.

访问翌日,他们一早就到校先开始一系列安排紧密的会谈,即与所有学科老师及相关人员依次会谈,会谈旨在评估老师们对开展相关学科教学的理解和准备情况。然后,访问团与学校图书馆管理员进行了会面。最后,他们与学生的家长们进行了交谈。

On the second day, they arrived early in school to start a hectic day of meetings. Interviews were conducted for all subject teachers and supporting staff members. The meetings were mainly aimed at evaluating the teachers' understanding and state of preparedness for delivering their respective courses. The team also met with the school librarians. The final session of the day was the dialogue with parents.

整个访问的过程都被访问团高度称赞是极富成效的,访问团专心致志于交流的每个环节,甚至有时超过了原本预定的会谈时间。

All sessions proved highly fruitful and the team was so engrossed in each of these exchanges that the day extended a full hour beyond the allocated time.

访问的最后一日,访问团与10年级预备班的学生进行了会谈。接下来,则是与负责IBDP重要支持课程的相关老师们会谈。此次访问最后以访问团与总校长葛翠兵先生、副校长李方华先生和IB国际部校长Joel Seow先生会谈而告以顺利结束。

On the last day of the visit, the team met the students of the Year 10 bridging programme. This was followed by a few other meetings with the respective teachers- in- charge of key IBDP supporting programmes. The day ended with a closure meeting with Principal Ge, Mr. Oliver Li and Mr. Joel Seow.

在 三天的访问中,IB组织验证访问团对其工作始终一丝不苟。他们对我校一流的硬件设施和教学资源印象深刻,因为这是成功实施IBDP课程的关键因素。我校硬 件设施的水准远超过IB官方的要求。科学实验室达到所有安全措施的要求,图书馆每周能轻松应对所有学生从早上7点到晚上9点的学习需求。访问团高度称赞教 师们的卓越资质,并对DP协调员全面理解课程亦予高度评价。家长们非常支持课程,并对其孩子从入读预备班以来的发展给予积极反馈。老师们对10年级预备班 学生在学习技能和语言能力方面教导有方,IB访问团对此予以高度赞赏。他们尤其对学生们熟练的英语能力,并符合IB学习者培养目标的特质的发展程度印象颇 深。

The IBO visiting members were highly meticulous and thorough during their 3-day verification visit. They are very impressed with the school’s facilities and resources, as these are considered key factors for the success of an IBDP Programme. Our facilities have far exceeded the official requirements. The science laboratories have met all safety measures and the library is easily accessible to all students from 7 am - 9 pm for at least 5 days a week. They spoke highly of the highly qualified teachers and commended the DP Coordinator for having a thorough understanding of the Programme. Parents were very supportive of the Programme and gave positive feedback on their children’s development since joining the bridging programme. The IBO visiting members commended our Year 10 bridging programme for preparing our students well in both skills and language ability. They are particularly impressed with the students’ level of English proficiency and the extent of their development of the IB Learner Profile attributes.

此次IB组织验证访问的这三天,对于IB国际部而言是一个极具挑战的时期。整个学校为此也付出了极大的努力,而这是极为值得的,因为只有经历了这个众志成城、团结一心的过程,我们学校才能真正致力于打造一流的高品质的国际教育。

Though this period has been a highly stressful one for most of us in the IB Division, it was well worth our efforts, as we have experienced the unity and cohesiveness born of a common commitment to excellence in education.
