  首先,要感谢学科和升学指导老师、班主任三年来的陪伴和辛勤付出,是你们严谨的教学态度和科学的教学方法,使孩子们在宽松、愉快的环境中学到了知识,增长了学业,并收获了自己梦校的录取通知书,你们是伟大的!
  Firstly of all, I’d like to express my gratitude to all the subject teachers, counselors and tutors for your three years’ of companion and hard work. It is your precise teaching attitude and scientific teaching approach that enable students to gain knowledge in a relaxed environment and get offers from their dream universities. How great you are!
  其次,要感谢孩子们,是你们相互帮助、相互学习、相互鼓励,赢得了才能和友谊;是你们发奋图强和艰辛的努力,学有所得,学有所成,父母为你们骄傲!
  Secondly, thank you to all the children. Not only friendship but also capabilities have you won with your mutual help, learning and encouragement. We parents are so proud of you for your hard work and arduous struggle. You really have achieved a lot from learning.
  今天,你们即将高中毕业,并步入成人的行列。在此,我想代表家长们对你们寄予几点希望:
  You will step into the adult world and your graduation is right around the corner. Here on, on behalf of all the parents, I would like to express our expectations to you:
  1.强化时间管理。常言到:时间如流水,稍纵即逝。人生分阶段,事物有缓急,要珍惜每分每秒,合理计划和分配时间,提高时间利用效率。你们正处在人生的黄金时期,要突出阶段性学习重点,以最短的时间取得人生最大的收获,因为,时间就是金钱,今天的不努力,你们将用一生的时间来弥补。
  1.Improve your time management skills. As the saying goes, “Time flies. Lost time is never found again.” There are different orders of priority for different stages of life. Cherish every minute, allocate and schedule your time properly so that you can make better use of your life. Make sure you emphasis on your phased study so that you can achieve most with the shortest time. Otherwise, you will have to spend the rest of your life making up for not striving today as time is money.
  2.学会自我激励。要善于表扬与自我表扬,增强信心,因为信心比金子更重要。人无完人,金无足赤,要用新的“木桶理论”[1]指导人生,就好比体育竞赛,每名选手都有自己的专业领域一样,不可能包揽全部奖项。善于将自己的长处发挥到极致,然后补齐短板,使自己既有宽度,更有高度。
  2.Learn how to self-encourage. Be good at praise, especially self-praise, and boost your confidence since confidence is more important than gold. No gold can be 100% pure and no one can be perfect. Guide yourself with the new “Wooden Bucket Theory”[2]. Life is like a sports competition; every player has his own specialty and no one can win all the prizes. Make the best of your strengths and improve your weaknesses to get both the breadth and the height.
  3.培养吃苦精神。不久,你们就要到世界不同的国家继续学业,将面临不同的环境、信仰、文化、饮食和同学,会遇到这样或那样的困难和问题,有时会感到寂寞、孤独和无助,有时甚至会很失落,要做好吃苦和迎接挑战的准备。古人云:宝剑锋从磨砺出,梅花香自苦寒来;困难如弹簧你弱它就强;不经历风雨怎能见彩虹。希望你们将这些作为你们成人后的第一次历练,在克服困难中成长,在解决问题中成才。
  3.Develop the spirit of bearing the hardship. You will go to different countries for further study before long. What will come are the different environment, religions, culture, diet and classmates. Be well prepared for the upcoming challenge because you will feel lonely, helpless or even sense of loss and you will have to deal with all sorts of problems on your own. As the old saying goes, “No pain, no gain; difficulty is like a spring which is strong when you are weak; you can’t see rainbow without wind and rain.” I hope you regard all the hardship as your first experience in your adult life. Grow up while pulling through and success while solving problems.
  4.明确人生目标。知道出国求学到底是为了什么——是为了开阔眼界,学自己心中所爱的专业,实现自己的梦想!希望你们能在极大的自由中学会控制自己,管理自己。经受住繁华世界的诱惑,坚持自己的初心!
  4.Specify your life goals. Know what studying aboard is about—— it’s about broadening horizon, majoring in what you have a passion for and making your dream come true. Hope you learn to control yourself in the great freedom, resist the temptation in this colorful world and adhere to your original faith.
  孩子们,还有不到100天你们就要离开家,离开父母,独自飞翔。想到这里,不禁一阵黯然,不胜唏嘘,原谅爸爸妈妈再不能陪伴在你们身边,再不能给你们准备可口的饭菜,爸爸妈妈是多么的不舍!纵然不舍,却不能阻挡,只能祝福和支持。这恐怕是全天下父母的心。再次祝福孩子们有个美好的未来,让我们珍惜共同渡过的每一天!谢谢大家!

  My dear children, within 100 days, you will be leaving home, leaving your parents to fly on your own. I cannot help feeling down and sobbing every time I think about it. Forgive your mother and father for not being around, for not preparing delicious meal for you. We are reluctant to have you leave but we cannot stop you. We can only express our support and blessings to you. I’m afraid every parent in the world thinks the same. Again, wish you a bright future. Let’s cherish everyday left for us together. Thank you so much.

  [1] “木桶理论”指出木桶储水量由最短的那块木板决定。新的“木桶理论”指出,如果将木桶向长板方向倾斜,其储水量就比正立时的木桶多得多,因此加长长板也可以增加储水量。
  [2] According to “the Wooden Bucket Theory”, the capacity of a wooden bucket is determined by the shortest stave. “The New Wooden Bucket Theory” states that if the wooden bucket is sloped to its longest stave side, its capacity will be much bigger than being vertical; that is to say, extending the length of the longest stave can also increase its capacity.
