【wONdEr Media】【武漢肺炎|英國學校封關】復活節假或不准宿生回港 4招助學生留英自習

英國目前確診9宗新型冠狀病毒肺炎個案,疫情雖不算嚴重,但公共衛生局(Publich Health England)與英國寄宿學校協會(BSA)的防疫措施並無怠慢。有學校因為鄰近確診地點,為免有社區爆發及為學生健康安全著想,與當局商討後,當機立斷宣佈停課。有見及此,大部分學校為最壞打算作出準備,近日向學生及家長們發出訊息,作好心理準備,復活節假期很大機會不可回港或中國內地。

 

英國寄宿學校提醒家長及同學們新型冠狀病毒肺炎疫情及隔離措施很大機會延續至復活節假期,若同學們在此期間到訪東南亞國家(包括中國、香港、澳門、泰國、日本、韓國、新加坡及馬來西亞),將被要求隔離14天並禁止回校,或趕不及準時開學。因此,打算為子女安排復活節假期回鄉或外遊的家長需要留意。學校會協助同學們報讀其他提供住宿的課程,繼續與監護人公司聯絡為學生安排入住寄宿家庭,有學校如Mount Kelly甚至在復活節期間在特別舉辦校內的復活節課程讓學生報讀。

 

復活節假無法回港,我認為同學可好好趁此機會裝備自己,我推介四個教育機構籌辦的復活節課程,既有專攻學習,亦有輕鬆遊樂,適合不同年級的同學:

 

Anglo Academy

Anglo Academy提供兩個以年級劃分的課程,Year 6至10的課程較輕鬆,提供多個工作坊,而Year 10至13學生的課程,相對側重學業。值得一提的是課程在歷史悠久的Boundary Oak School舉辦,學校鄰近倫敦希斯路機場及Winchester,交通方便。

 

Etherton Education

「老字號」Etherton Education課程在頂尖學校Blundells School舉辦,適合Year 5至13的學生,按不同年級的需要設計温習時間表,而且按參與日數收費,學生和家長可更有彈性地安排假期。

 

Mander Portman Woodward

私立預科學院Mander Portman Woodward(MPW)提供的課程以温習各學科為主,分別於倫敦、Cambrige及Birmingham上課。就讀其他高中的英國留學生亦可報讀MPW課程,但不保證能提供短期住宿。

 

Bright World

Bright World在Cambridge的課程以自修為主,不用「坐定定」上堂,亦有不少出外活動的機會。另一個於Caterham School的課程更幾乎全是出外活動或自由活動,包括倫敦一日遊參觀倫敦塔及Hever Castle等,學生可以好好享受假期。

【Oh!爸媽】肺炎疫情下留英度過假期 復活節課程讀書遊樂兼備

因應武漢肺炎疫情持續,英國寄宿學校呼籲海外學生在復活節假期間,不要到中國大陸、香港,以至東南亞國家,以減低肺炎的傳播風險。

以往香港學生大多會在復活節期間返港,主因是學校在假期期間不會開放,亦不會提供住宿,今年改為留在英國,難免大失預算,不妨藉此機會報讀復活節課程,既能解決住宿問題,亦可度過充實的長假期。今次介紹由四個教育機構主辦的課程,既有專攻温習、準備公開試,亦有輕鬆遊樂,選擇多元。

Anglo Academy提供的兩個課程以年級劃分,Year 6至10的課程較輕鬆,上午安排多個工作坊,包括公開演講、禮儀訓練等,均是小組形式及較多互動,幫助學生增強用英語溝通的信心和社交能力;午飯後則是課外活動時間。

至於為Year 10至13學生而設的課程,相對側重學業,畢竟這四個年級的學生即將面對公開試,因此,學生需要温習GCSE或A-Level的主要學科及操練試卷。Anglo會在課程開始前與學生一對一見面,度身訂造最合適的學習時間表,亦會安排每日運動及一日遊等,平衡學習及放鬆身心。

值得一提的是,Anglo的課程在歷史悠久的Boundary Oak School舉辦,學校鄰近倫敦希斯路機場及Winchester,交通方便。

短期課程「老字號」Etherton Education亦有提供復活節課程,雖然是臨時籌辦,但質素仍有保證。課程在頂尖學校Blundells School舉辦,適合Year 5至13的學生,按不同年級的需要設計温習時間表,又請來英國大學生指導温習技巧,相信對即將應付公開試的學生頗有幫助。此外,Etherton課程按比例收費,假設只參與12天課程,便只收12天費用,學生和家長可更有彈性地安排假期。

至於私立預科學院Mander Portman Woodward(MPW),本身提供A-Level和Foundation課程,照顧海外學生及應付公開試的經驗豐富。該校一如既往安排復活節課程,以温習各學科為主,分別於倫敦、Cambrige及Birmingham上課。就讀其他高中的英國留學生亦可報讀MPW課程,但不保證能提供短期住宿。

難得放長假,如果不想埋頭讀書,監護人公司Bright World的復活節課程是不錯的選擇。其中在Cambridge的課程以自修為主,不用「坐定定」上堂,亦有不少出外活動的機會。另一個於Caterham School的課程更幾乎全是出外活動或自由活動,包括倫敦一日遊參觀倫敦塔及Hever Castle等,學生可以好好享受假期。

Ruthin School, located in a small town of Ruthin, far away from the city distraction, leading me to concentrate in academic. Frankly, I spend most of the time in studying, and prepare myself in every Saturday test. It is demanding especially not being the smartest student at school, meaning that I need to spend more of my leisure time I used to have to study. On the other hand, I have met a lot of friends and schoolmates and they are mostly come from the Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, and most of them from China, which is also the largest proportion of students in the school community. During the weekends, I habitually go to Tesco after Saturday test and then eat dinner with friends in common room or in town. Most of the time, I visit the Chinese restaurants either getting takeaway or dine in. On Sundays, school usually organises school trips to Manchester, Liverpool and Chester. During half term, in the order of safety, we are not allowed to stay outside school unless we are staying in with our parents or guardians. Furthermore, we are not allowed to have relationships with opposite sex in the matter of negative influence in academic. Drinking alcohol in school is prohibited and student who is being caught in disobeying school rules will be expelled unless the principal is being generous and suspend student for week(s). Indeed, trying to break the school rules bring a huge consequences and at the mean time to ensure students obeying the school rules. To sum up, my overall experience in Ruthin School is pleasant and hope striving my best in A levels.
