亚澳商学院十年院庆教师代表戴正莉讲话

           

 

Good afternoon, distinguished leaders and guests, my dear students and colleagues. It is my great honor to be given the opportunity to share my experiences at AABC on behalf of the staff.

These days, while preparing for the 10th anniversary celebration, whenever I looked through the photos that recorded every significant moment in AABC’s history, I was always overwhelmed by memories of those unforgettable days. I still remember my first visit to our college which was only an office then still in the process of getting established.

How can you imagine today’s AABC, such a successful joint program in China with thousands of students and graduates home and overseas has evolved from just a small office. What made all this possible?

On this very important occasion, we feel strongly grateful for those who made contributions to the rapid growth of AABC. It was the vision of leaders of both universities that sowed the seed of cooperation in the fertile soil. It’s their continuous support that sheltered the wind and storm from the tender shoot. It’s the wisdom and courage of AABC leaders that ensure the tree grow upright. It’s the devotion and confidence of the staff that foster the tree into a shading plant. It’s the diligence and perseverance of our students that bring us a fruitful harvest of their success. Let’s say “thank you “ to these people for what has been done.

It’s not just a grateful moment, but also a reflective one. Looking back on the days working at AABC, I feel I have gained a lot academically and culturally. I know this kind of feeling is shared both by LU and VU teachers.

We are lucky to be able to get access to both eastern and western education systems from which we have drawn essence of one another that in turn pushes ourselves to an ever- higher level of scholarship. Over the journey, deep friendships have been formed among LU and VU teachers.

Through culture workshops conducted by AABC, VU teachers got to know more about Chinese culture and developed intense interests in it and strong love for China. At the workshop, our VU colleagues were shown the magnificent beauty of great China, indulged themselves in the fresh fragrance of Chinese tea and were amazed at the elegance of Chinese traditional dress——Qi Pao.

While LU staff stayed in Melbourne, we received the same warm hospitality. We were delighted to enjoy a cultural feast along with the professional development. The history of Australia drew us closer to this rich and diverse continent. The aboriginal art attracted us with its unique colors and designs. The 12 Apostles and the Golden Beaches made us admire the magic power of the Creator’s hands.

The culture exchange and acknowledgement shortens the distance between us and while still appreciating our distinctive ways of thinking due to our differences in culture, we’ve learned how to work well with each other towards our common goal. The positive working mechanism enables us to overcome difficulties and has brought us to where we are today.

The most enjoyable thing for teachers is to hear of the good news of their students. I think the teachers in the program will agree with me about the wonderful student outcomes from this program. We are excited when we got to know many AABC graduates were admitted to such famed schools as London school of Economics and Political Science, ANU, Melbourne, Tsinghua and Beijing universities and so on. We are pleased to see our students make achievements on their posts in various social sectors. We are proud of you, our dear students. You make us realize teaching is a glorious and rewarding profession.

At the end of my speech, I’d like to express the common wish held by all the staff. May there be even greater prosperity of AABC in the future! And may even more success come to our students!

 

尊敬的各位领导、各位来宾、亲爱的同学们、同事们,下午好!今天非常荣幸能有机会同各位分享我在亚澳的经历。

    这些天来,在院庆的繁忙准备工作中,每当我翻看那些记录着亚澳历史点点滴滴重要时刻的照片时,那些难忘的日子总是在我脑海里浮现。我还记得第一次到亚澳的情景,那时亚澳还在筹备过程中,只有一间办公室。今天的亚澳发展到拥有几千名海内外在校和毕业生的规模,是国内合作办学的成功典范。真是让人难以想象这一切都从当年的一个办公室发展而来。究竟是什么使这一切变成了可能呢?

    在今天这样一个重要的日子里,我们对为亚澳迅猛发展做出过杰出贡献的人们深怀感激。是两校的领导凭借他们的远见卓识在辽宁大学的沃土里播下了两校合作的种子;两校领导对项目的不断支持呵护着亚澳的成长;学院历任领导的睿智和勇气引领亚澳朝着正确的方向发展;学院全体教师的敬业精神和坚定信念浇灌亚澳这棵幼苗长成参天大树;勤奋刻苦、坚韧不拔的学生用他们的优异成绩给我们带来硕果累累的收获。让我们对这些曾经为亚澳做出贡献的人们说上一声“谢谢”。

    此刻不仅仅是一个感恩的时刻,也是一个让我们思索的时刻。回想在亚澳工作的时光,我感到在学术上、文化上受益颇多。我想项目中的其他同事在这点上与我感同身受。我们很幸运能够接触东西方两种教育体制,汲取各自的精华,推动自己的学术水平不断提升。在这个过程中,两校教师结下了深厚的友谊。

    通过学院举办的文化讲座,维大教师加深了对中国文化的了解,对中国文化产生了浓厚的兴趣,并爱上了中国。他们赞叹中国的壮丽美景,陶醉于中国茶的清香,惊讶于中国传统服装旗袍的优雅。辽大教师在墨尔本同样受到热情款待。在专业培训之余,我们享受了澳洲文化盛宴。对澳洲历史的了解拉近了我们同这块富饶土地的距离;土著文化独特的色彩和造型深深地吸引着我们;十二门徒、黄金海岸让我们不禁惊叹造物主的神奇。

    文化的交流和认同拉近了我们彼此的距离。在彼此欣赏由于文化差异造成的独特思维方式的同时,我们学会了为了共同的目标通力合作。良好的工作机制使我们能够克服种种困难,取得今天的成绩。

    对于老师来说,最高兴的事情莫过于听到学生的好消息。我想老师们会同意我的说法,而亚澳的学生也是喜报不断。当我们得知我们的许多毕业生被像伦敦政治经济学院、澳洲国立大学、墨尔本大学、清华、北大等名校录取时,兴奋不已。看到毕业生在社会的各个领域获得成绩,作为老师,我们倍感欣慰。亲爱的同学们,我们为你们感到骄傲。是你们让我们认识到教书育人是一件光荣并且有价值的事情。

    最后,我想代表全体教师表达我们共同的心声。祝愿亚澳的事业更加辉煌,祝愿我们的学生取得更大的成功!
