【南早教育網:Summer Activities】Fun Tastic

最近與農夫有不少合作機會,才知道原來他們也是教育界的一分子。唔講唔知,原來農夫有一間學習中心,名叫Funtastic Playland,對象是年紀較輕的小朋友,為他們提供不同類形的英語學習班和興趣班,目標是希望孩子在玩樂中學習和成長-Play.Learn.Grow。

 

Play!一個教育界知易行難,慢慢變成直接唔提的字眼。今時今日的香港,同學們只學習就好。先學野、再攞高分數、成功了,就去玩吧。這麼一來,次序該是Learn然後Achieve,最後才Play。而Funtastic則反其道而行,先去玩,在玩樂中學習,並在快樂的學習過程中成長,所以是先Play,然後Learn from Play,最後才Grow。

 

Funtastic Playland有所不同的,則流住農夫的血,有著二人乜都玩的DNA。莎士比亞英文Drama、小DJ學習班、親子唱遊班等,光看名字你一定不會聯想到和學習有關,反而是幾個好好玩的興趣班。Funtastic的宗旨,也正像農夫兩個「嘩鬼」去英國一樣,去到邊玩到邊,學習?玩完先算啦!所謂知易行難,是因為間間學習中心都希望孩子能夠玩,在玩之中成長。之不過香港孩子的壓力實在太大,容不下你以玩作為學習的工具。所以就同學們十八般武藝,學非洲鼓畫水墨畫打曲棍球學朗誦等,樣樣皆精,卻只是學習機器,一點都不enjoy。

 

那麼玩完之後學唔學到野?又可以再看農夫的示範。那段畢業speech正道出他們玩完一大輪的得著。有時候,學習不一定是死板,不是學了26個英文字母就等於識英文。跳水可以訓練膽量、爬泥漿可以練默契、打波也可以強身健體和學習團隊合作。

 

這就是玩樂學習的核心。不是只玩不學,而是用間接及更深刻的方式讓孩子好好吸收知識和技能,更能在他們的人生日記寫上難忘的回憶。香港教育面臨的其中一個大問題,是孩子害怕學習,被書本知識嚇怕了,休息的時候寧願對著iPhone,就已經當去玩。

 

有人話農夫是大細路,沒說錯。而這種大細路性格帶進Funtastic,能令學習更Fun、學生表現更Fantastic ( 唔好意思我食字係爛少少 )。想孩子在機器式的學習之中成長,還是在「Fun」之中得到「Fantastic」的結果?This is a personal choice,但我會揀後者。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
