Year 2021

『一元復始,萬象更新』是 2021 年最為期待的祝福賀語。人人都盼快快走出疫情,遠離令人恐慌的新冠肺炎,寄予新的年度無限的憧憬和期待。假期已過,這週起回歸正常上學的作息表,希望大家都度過了一個輕鬆又歡樂的寒假!

"A new year, a fresh start!" is what we most yearn for as the world enters 2021. Everyone hopes to say goodbye to COVID-19 and gradually approach to normality. May this year turn the tide of the pandemic and usher in a wealth of inspiration and invigoration for your life. This week marks the end of the winter break and the resumption of our instructional schedule. Hope you all had a relaxing and restful winter vacation.

目前仍在防疫階段,所有學校關閉且尚未有進一步開啟的計畫,為安定師生忐忑不安的心情,本校現已作出決定將繼續採用線上教學直到學年結束。學生已歷經一整學期線上課程,學習的態度已逐漸穩定且專心。學校為強化中文書寫和口語認讀的能力,目前已推出兩項比賽方案,旨在於推動學生自我學習,反覆練習的機會,提升學習的成果,祈請家長鼓勵子女報名參加。比賽性質及內容在本週通訊上有詳細說明。如有任何疑問,歡迎來信詢問!

The Regional Stay Home Order is still in effect and the school district has not put forward any reopening plan. To ensure the safety of our teachers and students, BVCS has decided to continue the virtual instruction until the end of this academic year. After a semester of remote learning, our students have grown accustomed to the online classroom, showing greater attention span and improved academic performance. In order to enhance our students' handwriting, reading, and speaking skills, BVCS is going to host two contests within our school. By means of these contests, we hope to motivate students to engage in self-learning and rote learning. Practice makes perfect. By participating in these contests, students will take substantial strides in their Chinese language skill set. We hope parents and guardians would encourage their children to join these fun-based contests. Please read on for more details of these contests, and contact us for any questions you have.
