7 義務老師和培訓 : 眾所皆知, 中文學校的義務老師乃是我們學校最大的資源, 為了使各位老師能有效地教導各同學, 學校方面於去年十月廿六日舉行了師資培訓 十六位中文學校的老師出席當日的訓練, 培訓專題是緊急救援課程 中文學校除了重視教學質素外, 學生的褔利和安全更為重要, 校方經常安排義工老師參加雪埠言語舉辦的急救課程 現在, 我們共有多位合格的急救員, 在有需要時提供不時之需 中文學校最大困難是老師的來源, 每星期學校都需要三十多位老師, 才能如常運作 基於我們所有教師和職員都是義務的, 在此多謝他們多年來為中文學校所作出的貢獻 今年新老師有國語班的张玉敏老師 王炜老師 郭莉莉和刘文笛助教, 廣東話班的陳穎怡老師 楚依蓓助理 Voluntary Teachers and Training Voluntary teachers are our school s most important asset, training is vital to enable them to teach effectively. We organised an in-house teachers training day on 26/10/14. This year we focused on First Aid skills. We do not only concentrate on the quality of teaching. The welfare and the safety of our children are equally important to us. We always arrange volunteer teachers to attend First Aid Training. At this moment, we have had sufficient qualified First Aiders to providing cover for any emergency needed during school time. As all our staff work on a voluntary basis, we need over 30 teachers weekly to ensure efficient and effective running of the school. Recruiting teachers has been our ongoing problem. Teachers may leave due to personal reasons or other commitments. We always value their hard work and contributions. We also welcome new teachers who bring in new ideas and enthusiasm to our school. The new teachers for this year are: Mandarin teachers Yu Min Zhang, Wei Wang, Lili Guo and teaching Assistant Wendi Liu; Cantonese teachers Winnie Chan, Christy and Assistant Y.P. Chor.
8 Financial Report: As you may be aware our school is a registered charity under the name of Sheffield Chinese Association. To keep our school running we depend on the contribution from our parents, grants from Sheffield City Council and other funding bodies and donations. Due to the increase of the language classes and volume of activities, we have experienced slight over expenditure during the past few years. However, the management team has worked extremely hard to secure more funding to release the financial pressure from our parents. Unfortunately, this year (2014/15) the Sheffield City Council changed the policy of Revenue Grant. This means we have lost around 30% coverage of our expenditure contributed by the Revenue Grant. Hence we had a deficiency over 5,000 this year. Thank you for the hard work from our treasurer Miss Choi Ping Li to minimize our debt. Apart from trying to seeking new funding, we received 400 from UK Association for the Promotion of Chinese Education; 300 from UK Chinese Education Foundation for mandarin and GCE/GCSE classes; and a small grant of 750 from Languages Sheffield Funding in 2013/14. This funding enabled the development of our educational services. Our closing balance at the end of August 2014 was 22,565. To conclude, our financial position remains healthy. In the year of 2014/15 we are seeking new Grand from other agencies for the following academic year. If we have no funding to support, we are afraid that our Cultural and educational activities will face a great problem to maintain in the future. 財政報告 : 各位家長都知道雪埠華人會和中文學校是一個慈善註冊團體, 學校的經費主要是來自家長的資助, 加上其他基金撥款和各界人仕的捐款得以運作 過去數年都有輕微的超支情況, 學校的管理階層一直以來都很努力尋求資金來源以減輕家長們的負擔 真不幸市政議會更改支助政策, 本 (14/15) 年度開始不予支助, 意味着我們失去百分之三十開支的資源, 今年即出現超過 5,000 鎊的虧損 我們要多謝財政李彩萍小姐的努力, 以減低我們的財政赤字 本年度除了的尋找新的教育基金撥款外, 計有雪埠語言的 750 英鎊 英國中文教育促進會的 400 鎊和英國中文教育基金會的 300 鎊用以支持國語班及會考班的發展, 還有各界人仕的捐款, 都用於發展學校的教育服務 截至二零一四年八月底結存共有 16,896 鎊 總括來說, 我們的財政尚可應付來年開支 在二零一四至一五年間本校尋求其它教育基金支助, 若然再沒有新的教育基金支助, 那怕延續文化教育活動, 我們將會面對極大的困難 校長 : 張寶昌 Headteacher: Paul Cheung 財政 : 李彩萍 Treasurer: Choi-Ping Li
