This has been an exciting time for SAIS.

In our Spotlight today we have a lot to catch up on so make sure you have time to read to the end! We are reporting on the first ever SAIS football team and their first football matches.

近来秋高气爽,深美的学生们也有着很多快乐的时光。本期聚焦深美将分享近来我们一系列有趣的活动,首先是深美首支足球队第一次出征参加足球比赛。

 

We also had a special Community meeting to allocate each student to their House.学生大会上我们把每位孩子都分配到了各自的学院。

Eagle house visited an upmarket restaurant to learn how a commercial kitchen worked and why understanding the chemistry of food was so important in producing an excellent meal. They spent the morning cooking a meal of Italian noodles with Duck confit sauce, garlic bread, roast tomatoes and other garnish.

老鹰学院前往参观了一家创意菜餐厅,了解商业厨房是如何运作的,以及为什么食物的化学成分对制作一顿美味佳肴如此重要。学生们在一个早晨的时间里学做了一道以鸭肉酱、大蒜面包、烤西红柿配以装饰的意大利面,并探索其中种种奥妙。

We welcome back our principal Miss Laura and Kenny as well as our final teachers, Sam and Omar. SAIS is now one of the few schools in Shekou with all their teaching staff back working. Well done everyone.

热烈欢迎我们的Laura校长和Kenny主任返校,还有中学部的Sam老师和Omar老师的到来。深美是现在是蛇口为数不多教师全员返校工作的学校之一。

Finally, Hallowe’en! What a fun morning to have just before the Student led conferences.

还有深美的万圣节活动!在学生主导的家长会开始之前,我们上午的万圣活动乐趣满满。

 

 

 

 

Sports news from SAIS 深美体育新闻

Our first ever football team took part in a friendly series of matches with other schools last week. The first game against Whittle was a nervous occasion for our players and we went on to lose the game 4-1 but history was created, not only by this first ever SAIS football match but the first goal scored by a SAIS student was down to Phineas. Although SAIS was losing 4-0 the SAIS team never gave up and with some good play by his team-mates Phineas was able to score our first ever SAIS goal.

深美首支足球队上周和其他学校进行了几场足球友谊赛。第一场比赛对荟同,深美的小球员面对着0:4的紧张局面却从未放弃,虽然最终以1:4的成绩输了比赛,但无论是我们的首次比赛,还是在队员的助攻下Phineas踢进了这首次的进球,都已创造了历史。

The second match was against Basis school. Now the team was playing well and after a good pass from David, Karl took the ball past 2 Basis players and with a 3rd Basis player running fast to stop him it was too late and he put the ball well past the goalkeeper and SAIS was in the lead.

第二场比赛对贝赛思学校,接到David的传球后,深美队开始进入佳境,Karl带球越过了对方2名球员,又一名对方球员追赶上来想要阻止Karl的进攻,但已经太迟了,Karl攻破对方的守门员,深美领先1球。

Soon after Basis equalised but in the second half with time running out Karl passed the ball to Michael who used his speed to run past the Basis defenders and beat the goalie with a great shot. SAIS had their first win! Although the strikers always get the headlines, without the great defending from Amy, Coco and our midfield of Bess, James and Angela, the strikers would not be successful. Finally Simon was our great goal keeper and team captain.

不久后贝赛思扳平比分,下半场所剩时间不多了,Karl把球传给了Michael,Michael加速超越了对方防守,用一记漂亮的射门赢下了深美的首胜!有了Amy, Coco的坚固防守 和中场Bess, James, Angela完美的配合,前锋得以占据主导位置,还有我们的队长Simon作为守门员不可或缺的功劳。

House News 学院新闻

In our special Community meeting the students were each given an envelope which contained the House they would be in. To make sure everyone opened at the same time envelopes were placed on their forehead and when Mr Mike gave the signal everyone had to open their envelope, see which House they were in and run to the table to get their House tee shirt.

在我们这次特别的学生大会上,每个学生都拿到了一个信封,里面写着他们将要加入的学院名。学生们把信封放在额头上,在我们体育Mike老师的一声令下,每个人都同时打开信封,迫不及待地看他们在哪个学院里,然后跑到自己的学院桌子前领取学院T恤衫。

Everyone runs to find their house table and get their tee shirt. 每位学生都跑向自己学院并领到学院T恤衫。

Can Panda House be the first to get their shirts and sit down?熊猫学院能成为最快穿好T恤衫并坐下的吗?

No, it was Lion House! At least the teachers are excited about winning! Well done Lions.最快的是狮子学院!狮子学院的老师发出了胜利的欢呼。

Students from Eagle House had the chance to visit an upmarket Restaurant called Magpie at OCT. The owner chef gave a briefing to the students and instructed them on how to safely use the equipment, especially the knives.

老鹰学院的学生一同前往参观了一间创意菜餐厅。主厨和学生们进行了分享及介绍,并指导他们如何安全使用刀具等设备。

The students learned how important it was to be accurate in their work. If the measurements are not correct then the food will not taste good. The liquid element of eggs and some water when added to flour create a reaction between the proteins in flour to create a bond we call gluten.

学生们体会了在工作中做到准确是多么重要。如果用料不准确,那么食物的味道就不会好。鸡蛋液和水加入面粉中后,会和面粉中的蛋白质产生反应形成面筋。

How to mix the ingredients is very important. Here eggs are carefully mixed with the flour. When the liquid is added and the dough is kneaded, we learned how the flour breaks down into 2 components which helps to give the glutinous structure needed for good pasta noodles. We learned that flour has two types of protein, gliadin and glutenin and the kneading process helps to activate these chemical components to produce the correct consistency in the noodles. This is an example of practical chemistry. 如何混合配料是非常重要的步骤。图中的学生正将鸡蛋和面粉仔细地混合在一起。加入液体并揉成面团后,学生们实践了面粉中的麦胶蛋白和麦谷蛋白遇水形成优质面条所需的胶状面筋结构。我们了解到面粉中的麦胶蛋白和麦谷蛋白与不同温度的液体混合在揉搓过程中有助于激活变化从而得到需要的面条粘稠度。这是一个实用化学的例子。

All of the components of the meal have to be prepared so they can come together at the same time. Here students are preparing the duck for the sauce.

步骤计划和时间管理也很重要,所有食材都要准备好才能在需要下锅的时候放进去。图中学生们正在准备鸭肉酱汁。

Everyone has their task and everyone is working hard. 每位学生都各司其职,烹饪工作井然有序地进行。

The pasta dough is put through a machine to stretch and then it is rolled and cut before being separated by hands into long strands of wide noodles. 学生们正把意面面团放入机器中拉伸、卷起并切割,然后学生们用手分开扯成长长的宽面。

Finally the food is ready to serve and the students enjoy a well deserved lunch! 最后食物烹饪完成,学生们享用了一顿他们亲手制作的美味午餐!

Welcome Back! 欢迎回来
