论国际学校对社区的益处

Jaret Thompson

Director of the Purcell Collegiate Corporate Board

珀塞尔独立学校董事局董事


Introducing an international school into a community isn’t as simple as building a facility and opening the doors. It is along road of planning, approvals and meetings, followed by replanning, more meetings and additional approvals. While there are many challenges on a projectof this scale, they are far outweighed by the benefits.

将国际学校引入社区并不像建造设施和打开大门那么简单。这是一条漫长的规划、批准和会议的道路,然后是重新规划、更多的会议和额外的批准。尽管在这种规模的项目上存在许多挑战,但收益远远超出了挑战。

An international school in a community like Kimberley, BC, provides many positive outcomes – economically, socially and culturally, both for the hosts and visitors.

在加拿大卑诗省金伯利这样的社区引入一所国际学校将在经济、社会和文化方面为社区居民和访客带来了许多积极的成效。

The international education sector in Canada comprises over 700,000 students each year. These students represent arapidly growing global market for international education. To Kimberley’s benefit,British Columbia is ranked as the most attractive destination in Canada whichis also one of the highest ranked in the world.

加拿大的国际教育部门每年有超过 70万名国际学生。这些学生代表了一个快速增长的国际教育全球市场。对金伯利有利的一点,不列颠哥伦比亚省被评为加拿大最具吸引力的留学目的地,也是世界上排名最高的留学目的地之一。

Students who travel for education have obvious expenses like tuition and accommodation. However, that isn’t the only thing they invest in; they push their disposable funds into a community’s economy. For example, around Canada, every year, these 700,000 international students frequent restaurants, shop local and utilise tourist amenities to enrich their time here. While Purcell Collegiate will not accommodate hundreds of thousands of students each year, it will attract hundreds of learners who will, among other things, eat and shop in and around our town.

为求学而跨国旅行的学生有明显的费用支出,例如学费和住宿费。然而,这些并不是国际生唯一的投资。国际生将可支配资金投入社区经济。例如,在加拿大各地,每年有 70万名国际学生光顾餐厅、在当地购物并利用旅游设施来丰富他们在这里的时间。虽然珀塞尔独立学校(Purcell Collegiate)每年不会容纳数十万学生,但它将吸引数百名学习者,他们将在我们镇内外吃饭和购物。

The presence of international students in Kimberley will provide important social opportunities for both international and local students as they have locally at School District 6 since 1981. Adiverse student body encourages tolerance, acceptance and sparks an interest inthe global community outside our city limits and national borders. As we slowly emerge from a worldwide pandemic that brought out the best and worst in the population, we cannot underestimate the significance of encouraging children tobe more patient, to lerant and welcoming.

国际学生在金伯利的存在将为国际和本地学生提供重要的社交机会,因为他们自 1981 年以来就在第 6 教育局学习交流。多元化的学生团体鼓励宽容、接受并激发我们对超越城市界限和国家边界,对全球社区的兴趣。随着我们慢慢从一场给人们带来或好或坏的全球大流行中走出来,我们不能低估鼓励孩子们变得更有耐心、宽容和热情的重要性。

My final point, and perhaps the most important, is the cultural benefit of welcoming international students into our community. Introducing other cultures into the fabric of our place, either passively or directly, helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live. It dispels stereotypes, and enriches an already strong culture.

我的最后一点,也许是最重要的一点,是欢迎国际学生加入我们社区的文化好处。被动地或直接地将其他文化引入我们所在地区的结构,有助于我们了解我们所生活的世界中的不同观点。它消除了刻板印象,丰富了已经很强大的社区文化。

While the students who travel to Kimberleywill receive a world-class education, acceptance into a welcoming community and an unforgettable, quintessentially Canadian experience, one could argue that our community will receive much more in return.

虽然前往金伯利的学生将接受世界一流的教育、融入热情好客的社区以及难忘的、典型的加拿大体验,但人们可能会争辩说,我们的社区将获得更多回报。
