On December 21, 2018, Greece's former prime minister, former 'political fighter', vice chairman of the advisory board of the Northern International Iniversity Alliance, co-founder of Project - Agora - Mr. George Andrei Papandreou visited SIA and brought our students a wonderful speech themed 'Youth Leadership'.

Prime Minister George comes from a family of political bellwedges. His grandfather, Georgios Papandreou, was prime minister for three times and his father, Andreas Georgiou Papandreou, was prime minister twice and founded the Pasok.

George Papandreou, now President of the Socialist International, had been Foreign Minister, Minister of Education and Religious Affairs, a visiting scholar at Harvard University, studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and received honorary doctorate degree in law. Many years of overseas study experience, as well as the diverse backgrounds of law, education, diplomacy and religion, have brought up Prime Minister George's highly inclusive global vision and outstanding leadership style of humanistic care. He is quite different from other politicians who tend to be antagonistic and competitive. He was elected as Prime Minister of Greece in 2009.

At his later years, this political power tend to education and the youth, with the years of precious life experience. Prime Minister George hopes that more Chinese teenagers will be exposed to the wisdom of the world's leading edge, and on the basis of self-understanding, not following the crowd, stick to the original heart to become themselves, diligently transcend themselves, and then contribute to the development of China and the world.


His excellency George Papandreou, now in his mid-seventies, came to Shenzhen, China, to talk about his own story and tell our students at SIA how to understand the word 'leadership' in the real world.

In his lecture, his excellency George Papandreou stressed that 'our modern society needs young people to have leadership, and real leadership is to inspire peers, which is a deeper influence, and only by building loving relationships can we succeed.' The leadership here is not the command on the superficial level, but rather when you enter a team, you can let everyone play their ability, to attract and integrate. This is what every child who participates in 'teamwork, social relationships' should have.

Teenagers who are from the most only-child family normally lack teamwork spirit and the examination-oriented education in school has left many children with only competitive mentality but no ability to cooperate with other people. SIA encourages our students to set up student clubs, and so far we have established and operated more than 40 clubs. The adademy also supports and assists our students to carry out a variety of community activities, so that thry can exercise their sense of teamwork and strengthen social relations in the community activities.

Young people in the 21st century will face more arduous challenges. In the era of rapid development of information, those who do not have the ability to process information quickly will encounter problems and confusion. So can we do? His excellency George Papandreou, drawing on his own experience and experience in government, said:' When I was a leader, I was always confused, but I couldn't run away, neither could you. We should keep listening and learning, to seek cooperation. No leader can lead a country by himself. You can all be future leaders if u know how to cooperate with other people.'

The cultivation of logical thinking and critical thinking is an important part of SIA training system. Our students can exercise their logical thinking and critical thinking through the American interactive class combining theory and practice, critical reading and participating in various international competitions, and develop their leadership ability at the same time. The cultivation of leadership is to learn to cooperate and allow different ideas to exist. Power does not necessarily come from authority. Good ideas do not necessarily come from leaders. His excellency George Papandreou encouraged our students to build common values and common dreams, strive to improve themselves and become important members on the world stage in the future. He also hopes and encourages our students to become future leaders.

At the end of the visit, his excellency George Papandreou commented on the performance of our students at SIA. He praised the students for their excellent foreign language skills, active and open mind and unique experience. His excellency George Papandreou encouraged the students to take a look at the outside world, which would help them better understand what it means to be Chinese. 'Being aware of the parts of Chinese culture that you cherish can help you become an ambassador for the spread of Chinese culture and other cultures.' We hope that our students will have more chances to talk about the world, have an in-depth understanding of the whole picture of the world, focus on world peace and development, to become a wise person, and a real leader of themselves and the world.

Principal of Sendelta:John Sun讯得达国际书院-外方校长美国顶尖大学教育管理学和计算机科学硕士;十三年国际学校管理经验:对于国际学校管理体系有独特见解,建立高标准的国际学校管理体系。亲爱的讯得达家人和朋友们,上周时间虽短,事情却不少。首先,我想要说这周我们的学生表现非常棒。我特别观察他们在教室使用笔记本/iPad 的情况。大多数学生在用电子产品非常认真地学习,对于这些学生电子产品使用不成问题,只有极个别学生因为玩游戏电子设备被没收(没收完几小时后会还给学生)。上周我决定,教室有老师在的情况下学生使用电子产品,被没收后到下周一才可取回。现在他们认识到电子产品对他们的重要性了,自己会衡量下在教室玩游戏的后果。作为校领导,需要起模范带头作用,一方面我需要坚定制度执行一方面要给建议和关心学生,并需要在学生需求与使用权限之间做平衡,这点还需要家长们的支持。 EC...

Vice Principal:Tremayne Gibson讯得达国际书院-学术副校长美国哈佛大学历史本科;美国约翰·霍普金斯大学国际关系硕士亲爱的讯得达家人们,在与大家分享上周校园新鲜事前,就新调整的几点重要事项在此作以说明。首先,经过与全体老师探讨商定,学术部决定原定9月10日发给家长的“学术预警信”将推迟发出。因为目前学生成绩单中只有个别测试分数,老师们认为这还不足以说明学生整体学习的好坏,仅以当前成绩作为判断依据对他们来说是不公平的。因此,如果家长登录 PowerSchool 看到一到两个低分,也不用过于紧张。对于我们的很多新生来说,美式教育是一个全新的世界,他们可能还处于适应期,日后会逐步提高,所以“学术预警信”将会在国庆节后10月10日发出。其次,为促进学生学习,上周起教学部开始加强自习监管力度。白天没有排课的时间段,所有学生必须在指定区域由老师监管集中上自习。学校鼓...
