On May 31, 2019, the annual Academic Kaleidoscope of RDF International School was held in a grand way. Nearly 400 students and teachers participated, with dozens of parents also attending the school event. The Academic Kaleidoscope showcases students' outstanding works with a spirit of performance and festivity, simultaneously encouraging students to expand their horizons and celebrate strong academics on campus.
In the preparation for the activities, the teachers and students carefully prepared the exhibits with attention to ensuring deep learning and high quality displays. The event organizers produced a sophisticated “passport” card for the event, encouraging students to record lessons on the passport card, to demonstrate active participation in each activity. The most engaged House team would win the privilege of enjoying a movie and popcorn on Sunday night.
At the show, RDF students presented their works from various subject areas and enthusiastically explained their displays to parents and classmates. The activities were brilliant, including mathematics and geography competitions, a Business Fair, an Art Exhibition, a Science and Technology Fair, a World War II History Museums, and other projects, bringing a wonderful feast for the teachers, students and parents. These creative works highlight the RDF students' innovative thinking ability, knowledge integration ability, and the spirit of seeking knowledge and exploration—reflecting the remarkable achievements of the RDF International School in the growth and development of children.
At the Business Fair, instructor Ms. Lorraine Foster said: “RDF students have worked hard this semester, creating their own Business Plans. Keep a LOOK OUT for these companies in the near future!” Students created many business plans with great vision, such as “Lings”, an app for booking seats for coffee and soda in different locations; “Sweet Mix”, which offers customers a variety of confections; “MusiCrowd”, “Music City”, “Music Cloud”, a company that provides a platform for non-famous singers; and “Bumble Bee Delivery”, which uses drones to deliver food. Other Creative company names were “Still Fry”, “THR Car Rental”, " Credit Loves Apple".
在贸易展览会上，指点西席Ms.Lorraine Foster说道：“瑞得福国际学校的先生们本学期事情起劲，建立了本人的企业以及企业雄图，请注意这些将来可期的公司！”先生们缔造了很多具有杰出远见的贸易理念，诸如”Lings”，一款在差别地址为咖啡、苏吊水等预定座位的使用法式；”Sweet Mix”,为主顾提供差别品种交融古代时髦的甜食；“MusiCrowd”、”Music City”、”Music Cloud”,为非闻名歌手提供平台的公司；”Bumble Bee Delivery”,用无人机运送食品；以及“Still Fry“、”THR Car Rental”、“Credit Loves Apple”等极具创意的企业
At the mathematics exhibition, the instructor Mr. Michael O 'Connell said, "The math teachers created some very challenging problems for their students to give them an opportunity to test their mathematical abilities. The students tried their very best to compete against each other and against themselves. The number of students who showed up to take the tests was almost overwhelming, and the math department had to hurry and print up more competition exams so that students wouldn't be disappointed. Overall, it was a very strong showing by students of all levels in all of the different math classes offered at RDF.
在数学展上，指点西席Mr. Michael O 'Connell说道：“数学先生们为先生们缔造了一些异常具有应战性的题目，让他们无机会测试本人的数学才能。在Math Counts竞赛中，先生们全力互相竞争，并与本人竞争。每小我私家都明智天时用他们的工夫，效果异常令人鼓动。加入测验的先生人数险些是压倒性的，在场的卖力人必需赶快打印更多的竞赛试题，如许先生就不会绝望。总的来说，在瑞得福国际学校提供的一切差别数学课程中，一切的先生都显示得很好。”
At the art exhibition, Teacher Lane said her inner feelings. “The art exhibition led by Andrew’s teacher shows the representative works of each grade. Most impressive to me is the cubism works. Was founded in 1908 by George Braque and Pablo Picasso of Montmartre, France. It is a movement and genre in the history of modern Western art. It is characterized by many objects placed in the same picture to express the complete image of an object. The angles of the objects are interlaced to create a number of vertical and parallel line angles. The scattered shadows make the cubist picture, but without the perspective of traditional Western painting. The three-dimensional illusion caused by the background and the theme of the picture are interspersed, letting the cubist picture create a two-dimensional feel. The children's works are stunning; they helped me understand the history of writing, fresh creative inspiration. Each works has it’s own characteristics and styles, immersed in their own unique ideas. The process and product impressed me with what the power of art can be."
在美术展上，Lane先生道出了她的心里感觉：“Andrew先生率领下的美术作品展把每个年级代表性的作品都展现出来，最让我印象深入的是cubism works(平面主义作品)平面主义最先于1908年，由法国巴黎蒙马特区的乔治·布拉克Georges Braque和毕加索Pablo Picasso所确立，是东方古代艺术史上的一个活动和派别，特点因此很多的角度来形貌工具物，将其置于统一个画面之中，来表达工具物最为完好的抽象。物体的各个角度交织迭放形成了很多的垂直与平行的线条角度，散乱的暗影使平面主义的画面没有传统东方绘画的透视法形成的三维空间错觉。靠山与画面的主题交互交叉，让平面主义的画面缔造出一个二维空间的绘画特征。孩子们的作品异常震撼，让我领会派作汗青，新颖的创作灵感。他们的作品划分有各自的特点和气概，浸入了本人的怪异想法，让我在旁观的历程中深深的感觉到艺术的气力是何等的巨大。”
At the World War II History Museum, Mr. Staven Liu said: “The WWII-related works were demonstrated and exhibited, including all kinds of weapons used, the jobs male or females soldiers did, some war heroes' stories, and poison gas masks during WWII. What impressed me the most was the concentration camp, in which more than one million men, women, children (mostly Jewish) died from diseases, being killed or tortured to death. It's not easy to gain the peace we have today, so peace should be preserved for the future.”
The RDF Technology Expo aims to actively respond to the five new development concepts of “innovation, coordination, greenness, openness, and sharing”, focusing on the needs of life development, bringing together knowledge and wisdom, and promoting the transformation of quality projects. The exhibition was very popular, and many students took their own works to participate, attracting a large number of teachers, students, and parents to participate. This exhibition shows the progress of RDF students' scientific and technological achievements, and will also promote RDFIS technology to continuously innovate their scientific research.
After the Academic Kaleidoscope event, awards were given to the top students in each event. The Leopard House won the team participation award, and all members were given the privilege to watch the movie on Sunday night.
