Joe校长10月来信

Greetings Parents:

各位家长:

 

I’m back!

我回来啦!

 

I am pleased to be writing my October Headmaster’s letter with feet (finally!) back on the ground in China!

我非常高兴我可以双脚站在中国土地上来写这篇十月校长寄语。

 

Returning parents are aware that it has been 8 long months of separation between me and the Daxing campus.  I was stranded first in New Zealand, and then in California, New York and Vermont when the virus made its surge in Wuhan and then beyond. During that time I was, like the rest of the world, biding my time in voluntary isolation and anxiously following news reports for hints about when China might reopen her boarder and allow foreigners back into the country.  To be honest, a recently as September I was doubtful that a return anytime soon was likely.  With Covid19 still raging in the US, and the frosty climate that Donald Trump’s rhetoric has created with China, getting back to Daxing seemed a long way off.  

家长们知道我和大兴校区已经分离8个月了。在病毒在武汉爆发并开始蔓延的时候,我最初滞留在新西兰,之后是美国加州、纽约、最后到了佛蒙特州。在那段时间,我和世界上其他人一样,在自愿隔离的同时也在焦虑地等待着中国重新开放允许外国人进入中国的消息。实事求是的说,在刚刚过去的九月,我还很确定能马上回来。新冠病毒还在美国肆虐,特朗普政府与中国的紧张关系,都使回到大兴校区看起来还有很长一段路要走。

 

It was a September magic trick performed by Dr. Li that got the job done.   By way of the guanxi that he shares with his former colleagues in the Chinese government,  I was officially designated as a “special category foreign expert” which allowed me to renew my visa and gain approval for reentry.  So, here I am, well rested (thanks to my 14-day quarantine in Guangzhou), in good health, in good spirits, and VERY pleased to be back at school.  It has been a long 8 months!

但是李松博士像变魔术一样在9月份完成了这项工作。通过他与在中国政府前同事之间的关系,我被认定为“特殊类别外国专家”,这使我可以申请中国签证并获得入境许可。所以,(在广州14天的防疫隔离)得到了充分休息后的我现在身体健康,精神饱满,非常开心地回到了学校。过去的8个月太漫长了!

 

The students’ return to campus yesterday from the Mid-Autumn Festival coincided with my own arrival in Beijing from Guangzhou.  It was energizing to see the familiar faces of return students and exciting to get my first look at the new students who have joined us this fall.  Already I am feeling welcomed and beginning to comfortably settle back into the familiar routines of school.  

在同学们中秋假期重返校园的同时,我也从广州抵达了北京。看到那些熟悉的脸庞和这个秋天刚刚入学的新面孔都让我感到很兴奋。我已经感受到了大家的欢迎并且开始全力以赴地开始工作。

 

I would be remiss if I did not recognize and thank ALL of the faculty and staff members who have worked so hard, under challenging and unpredictable circumstances, to keep the EduChina program intact.  Mr. Wu, in particular, has earned my gratitude for his steady hand and above-and-beyond efforts toward keeping the daily operations of the Daxing campus running so smoothly.  And, of course, thanks also goes to Dr. Li for his leadership and his unwavering commitment throughout the past 8 months to the EduChina mission.  

在充满挑战和不确定因素的环境下,我看到了我们全体教职工的不懈努力并且感谢大家的付出使学校的教学没有受到影响。在此尤其感谢吴征校长对于大兴校区日常事务平稳运行的坚定领导和所付出的卓越努力。同样感谢李松博士在过去8个月的领导和对中育贝拉使命的坚定承诺。

 

Finally, I share my thanks to YOU as parents.  Your faith in EduChina – underscored by allowing us the privilege of teaching your son or daughter – is deeply appreciated and never taken for granted.  Indeed, we strive each day to present a program that demonstrates to you that your faith in us is well placed.

最后,我要表示对家长们的感谢。您对中育贝拉的信任,给予我们教授孩子们知识、帮助孩子们成长的机会,我们对此深表荣幸。实际上,每一天,我们都用努力的工作向您证明,我们不会辜负您对中育贝拉的信任。

 

I look forward to seeing you in person in the near future.  In the interim, please know that Lucky Joe is feeling especially lucky to be back in The Middle Kingdom!

期望在不久的将来能亲自见到您。与此同时,再次证明我的名字Lucky Joe确实能够给我带来特别的运气让我回到中国!
