Dear Guests and Visitors,

On behalf of the entire Confucius International School Qingdao (CISQD) community, it is an honour and a privilege for me to welcome you to our School. The unique characteristics of CISQD support a community dedicated to educating the whole child, while emphasizing not only academic excellence, but Confucian and broad humanistic values, as well.

At the same time, we strive to introduce our students to the latest curricular innovations and developments that prepare CISQD students to meet the exciting opportunities and challenges as global citizens in the 21st century. CISQD’s goal has always been to foster a lifelong passion for learning and commitment to academic and personal excellence in its students.

At CISQD we envision the following:

(1) A true partnership including parents, students, staff, the Board, and community resources:

(2) A well-equipped, qualified and caring Faculty and Staff that puts students first, exhibits strong leadership, a passion for learning, and a commitment to success for every student:

(3)An international curriculum based on research and best practices that allows students to demonstrate knowledge through a variety of activities:

(4)Exceptional facilities and exceptional experiential learning opportunities within a safe, secure and developmentally-appropriate environment that responds to the educational, moral and developmental needs of every individual.

We have an extensive and impressive range of programmes and facilities that allows us to meet the needs of all our students. CISQD continues to build on its strengths and to graduate students of the highest caliber, graduates who already study at some of the world’s most prestigious universities, such as Cambridge, Imperial College London, the London School of Economics and University College London.

CISQD is a forward-looking, innovative school with exceptional academic, sporting and cultural facilities. The education we offer is based on expertise in the classroom, unity between parents and teachers, idealism and generosity in families, the best of support for parents, understanding of character education. Unlike other international schools, CISQD draws deeply from the wealth and diversity of Chinese education and philosophy. Rooted in political and moral principles, CISQD Confucian education is concerned solely with what constitutes the makings of the ‘man of quality’ and with the tools that the man of quality must master. Confucius demonstrated that education plays a fundamental role in the development of society and of individuals alike. Not only does it offer a means of ensuring the supremacy of virtue; it can also alter human nature and improve it in qualitative terms.

By raising individual moral standards, it renders society in its entirety more virtuous. Special concern for education and the notion that action at the level of individual morality is called for if the moral level of society is to be raised. Confucius believed that one of the primary concerns of the teacher must be to determine what type of person he is to form. He considered that the goal of education was to produce capable individuals (xiancai)—whom he also called shi (gentlemen) or junzi (men of quality)—who ‘combined competence with virtue’ and whose subsequent careers in administration and government would bring about the ideal of a kingdom managed with integrity. At CISQD today, this is the goal of every Faculty and Staff member.

Confucius had a great deal to say on the subject of teachers. He believed that a good teacher should first and foremost be passionately and conscientiously committed to his work. Passion and concern for the well-being of each and every student is the hallmark of the CISQD teacher. The teacher’s own knowledge must be broad in scope and fully mastered if his pupil was to benefit from exposure to it.

Confucius further believed that in order to elicit good results, the teacher must love his pupils, know them well, understand their psychological particularities, give thought to ways and means of facilitating their access to knowledge and, to that end, develop an effective methodology. The hallmark of a teacher’s virtue, in Confucius’ eyes, was tireless commitment through his lessons to his pupils’ development. This tireless commitment is something that we as administrators strive to model as an inspiration of our Faculty.

CISQD Teachers and Students must also possess firm moral convictions; they must show modesty and discretion in their relations with others; they must convey their knowledge in a humble fashion, keeping nothing to themselves; they must learn to express themselves elegantly and in a lively and passionate fashion; they must cultivate their own personal morality and always match their deeds with their words.

For the Faculty and Students of CISQD, we expect and accept nothing other than each individual’s best and nothing less. We are committed to the formation of young Chinese men and women or academic and moral excellence; young Chinese men and women who celebrate all that the motherland has give them: who never lose that intrinsic love for China and the pride in being the Chinese and global citizens. All of our students are products of that system and I can say, hand on heart, that I have never seen students with such a hunger and passion for education and for the learning process.

For this, on behalf of all those international educators who are privileged and fortunate to have the opportunity to work within China with such students, I congratulate you on your success and thank you for making our jobs so much easier.

In conclusion, CISQD will accept nothing less of its Faculty and Staff than their whole-hearted commitment and dedication to the academic and moral development of its students. Faculty and Staff are committed to employing strive best practices and the highest standards from international and Chinese education and philosophy to best prepare our students for future success as leaders of the future, not only here in China, but globally as Chinese ever-increases its presence and influence on the world stage.

Respectfully,

Francis G. Carolan

CIS Vision Statement

CIS is a community characterized by multi-culturalism, internationalism, dynamism, and global-mindedness, where best practices in modern education and Confucius ideas fuse; an environment where students can achieve their full potential and become global citizens and ambitious, self-reflective learners, balanced enquirers and achievers, and ambassadors of Chinese culture.

THE ROLE AND OBJECTIVES OF CIS EDUCATION

Rooted in political and moral principles, Confucian education is concerned solely with what constitutes the makings of the ‘man of quality’ and with the tools that the official must master. Confucius demonstrated that education plays a fundamental role in the development of society and of individuals alike. Not only does it offer a means of ensuring the supremacy of virtue; it can also alter human nature and improve it in qualitative terms. By raising individual moral standards, it renders society in its entirety more virtuous. Special concern for education and the notion that action at the level of individual morality is called for if the moral level of society is to be raised. Confucius believed that one of the primary concerns of the teacher must be to determine what type of person he is to form. He considered that the goal of education was to produce capable individuals (xiancai)—whom he also called shi (gentlemen) or junzi (men of quality)—who ‘combined competence with virtue’ and whose subsequent careers in administration and government would bring about the ideal of a kingdom managed with integrity.

Confucius determined that the twin pillars of education should be:

1.Moral instruction, which would have priority, and,
2.The imparting of knowledge.

Moral instruction, which had to take pride of place, since what was needed were individuals of outstanding virtue who would assist leaders in governing with integrity, thus became the basis of Confucian teaching. His ethics, philosophy and politics are inseparable, the first of these being characterized by a rare vitality which was the driving force of feudal morality and civilization for more than two millennia and which focused on ‘humanity’ or ‘benevolence’ (ren), which also signifies love for one’s neighbour. This virtue manifests itself in all types of relations between human beings and contains the germ of other qualities: filial piety (xiao), respect for the elderly (ti), loyalty (zhong), respectfulness (gong), magnanimity (kuan), fidelity (xin), diligence (min), altruism (hui), affability (wen), kindness (liang), frugality (jian), tolerance (rang), indulgence (shu), wisdom (zhi) and courage (yong). It also helps in avoiding all forms of excess, promotes fearlessness in the face of difficulties, assists in distinguishing what is to be cultivated from what is to be eschewed, and encourages honest and righteous conduct.
All these qualities stem from ren, which enjoins human beings to show mutual sympathy, solicitude and respect, and to watch over one another. In order that all these precepts might serve to enhance the responsibility of individuals and society alike, Confucius stressed that each man should cultivate virtue and should receive a moral education. Moral education was thus for Confucius the means whereby his ideas concerning virtue might be materialized.

Confucius' education principle

Confucius was equally concerned with the intellectual development of his disciples, that is to say with the inculcation of culture, abilities and skills. Confucius’ teaching also covered the six arts (rites, musicianship, archery, chariot-driving, calligraphy and mathematics), the purpose of which was to impart skills and know-how through practice; according to Confucius, study of the six classics, coupled with mastery of the six arts, would inculcate sound moral sense and a solid cultural grounding that were necessary for the competent exercise of public office.
His essential concerns were: to provide students with an education that matched their aptitudes; to inspire and guide them; to lead them by stages; to instruct oneself while teaching others; to explain the present in the light of the past; to devote oneself conscientiously to study and to take delight in it; to combine theory with practice and applied study with abstract meditation; to ensure that personal behaviour was in conformity with the principles examined; to encourage independent thought; to take account of the age of the learners; to practise self-control and self-analysis; to set a good example; to correct one’s errors and improve oneself; to curb evil and exalt the good; to welcome criticism; to accept correction; to forget past affronts, etc. For Confucius, all these principles were the product of a profound intuition frequently confirmed by practice.

Teachers

Confucius had a great deal to say on this subject. He believed that a good teacher should first and foremost be passionately and conscientiously committed to his work. His own knowledge must be broad in scope and fully mastered if his pupil was to benefit from exposure to it. Confucius further believed that in order to elicit good results, the teacher must love his pupils, know them well, understand their psychological particularities, give thought to ways and means of facilitating their access to knowledge and, to that end, develop an effective methodology. The hallmark of a teacher’s virtue, in Confucius’ eyes, was tireless commitment through his lessons to his pupils’ development. He must also possess firm political convictions; show modesty and discretion in his relations with others; convey his knowledge in a disinterested fashion, keeping nothing to himself; express himself elegantly and in lively fashion; cultivate his own personal morality; and match his deeds with his words.

Introduction to CIS Double Tri-Color Educational Philosophy

CIS's Tri-Color Education System includes Confucian New Six Arts Institute, British education and American education.

These three systems combined produce the synergized effect of quality mainstream education abroad and essential traditional Chinese cultural education. These principles are embedded in the education of students to facilitate each student's whole development. CIS's education system inherits the essences of Ancient Six Arts and traditional Chinese culture, incorporates the advantages of Chinese and Western education, and paves the way for elite education. This distinctive system shines on the land of China with its unique concept helping more Chinese students to ascend on the world stage with brilliant qualities.

CIS's Tri-Color Cultivating System integrates school, family and society.

School

The school implements “whole person education,” cultivating students' confidence, self-discipline, leadership and team spirit.

Family

The family component encourages the parents to lead by example and support the school's educational philosophy.

Society

The society aspect encourages students to take an active interest in public charity and practice to further foster a sense of social responsibility remembering “even the humblest citizen knows his duty to his country.”

Internationalized New Six Arts is an innovative educational philosophy created by Mr. Kong Lingtao. It is based on the research of Confucius' educational philosophies and beliefs, integrated with Western education. It is the education goal and operating strategy designed to allow modern Chinese international schools to cultivate elite students who will be ready to face the fiercely competitive challenges and harmonious development on the global stage. The Classical Confucius Six Arts will be shining again after 2500 years.

“Li,” which has the implication of moral standards and values, includes moral cultivation, social consciousness, legal concept, self-discipline, international rites and culture. Students are required to strive for the highest overall moral standards.

Through events like Confucius Worshiping Ceremony, Ancient Adulthood Ceremony, Oscar Red Carpet School Opening Ceremony, Morality Cultivation Forum, Business Etiquette Course, Public Charity, Mock Court, etc., we help students establish correct values, enhance national pride and sense of social responsibility. All of these things will lead our students to embrace their country and the world so that regardless of where they travel, our students will promote the traditional virtues of the Chinese nation. 


“Yue” has the implication of more than just music. It includes all artistic accomplishments including music appreciation, drama performance, poetry, painting, graphic design, dancing, performance, and film appreciation.

We provide various opportunities to expose students to fine arts by establishing an “art palace” in courses of music appreciation, drama performance, painting, graphic design, dancing, and film appreciation. Eastern and Western art history are studied to cultivate students' souls, edifying their sentiments, and enhancing students' talents in order to cater to the future requirements of international elite education.


“She” has the implication of all skills and methods of competition including the athletic sports and team competition.

The team spirit, cohesive force and training practical ability, physical quality, social ability and social public welfare ability will be cultivated through competitive sports such as athletics, gentle sports, outward bound training, and team activities.
The school introduces team competition mechanisms in teaching management. For example, students are managed by Four Houses: Kong, Meng, Yan, Zeng to learn competition courses, Chinese kungfu, golf, horse riding, and outward bound training. The school also organizes


Yu” demonstrates elite students' force of control, including leadership, self-confidence, and self-discipline. Riding cultivates planning-innovating-executing, teamwork abilities, and leadership.

The house system has been introduced to teach management in order to create a system for competition. The provision of courses such as leadership, business management, time management, literacy programs, team debate competition and the development of independent thinking, coordination and ability to innovate can enhance students' self-confidence and mental literacy.


“Shu” refers to the interpretation of ancient and modern East-West cultural exchange and cultural integration.

The idea is to guide students to acquire a rich cultural heritage, enhance knowledge, improve conservation, teach Eastern and Western languages, culture, calligraphy, literature appreciation, history, and philosophy. Culture is the nation's food for thought. It is the key to whole-person development. Courses on the following topics can be offered: calligraphy, writing, economics, philosophy, history, human geography, English, French, Korean and other foreign languages. In addition, cultural activities can be organized for both Chinese and foreign festivals, anniversaries, and other events. By doing this, students can become globally-minded citizens.


“Shu” refers to the sense of rational thinking and natural science

which also has implications of exploring natural science, improving abilities of analyzing and solving problems, teaching mathematics, logistics, operational research and modern information technology.In the learning system, subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, ICT, and finance will be offered under IGCSE, A-LEVEL, SAT, and AP courses. College counseling services will also be provided for students. Logistics, critical thinking, scientific and technological knowledge, and life skills will also be offered.
