【教育王國】面對被欺凌 移民專家:相信我,一切只是過渡

由於肺炎在英國傳播,英國社會各階層對中國人惡感增加,這是不可否認的事實。
但英國人的歧視比美國人精細。英國人連美國人也歧視,包括美國缺乏教育的白人在城市的商場向中國人大聲講粗口斥責。雖然牛津街出現過新加坡華人學生遭到英國白人毆打,但英國人視為國恥,不是痛恨毆打華裔學生的那兩個英國白人,而且憎厭他們過紛直率的欺淩方式敗壞了英國文化。

在今年九月復課的寄宿學校,不論Online還是回校上課,學校對華人學生中的欺淩事件,令人不無擔心地,或許會與社會氣氛一樣有一點點增長。

發生這種現象,港媽愛子心切,覺得一年幾十萬元學費,當然要向校方投訴。不過,英國的寄宿學校宗旨,面對欺淩是教育成長的一部份;因為學童如何在成長過程中,以成熟智慧的態度自行應付bully而不需要勞師動眾哭哭啼啼找校長出面解決調停,更是英國寄宿學校的核心精神。

因此若大家今年在英國寄宿學校遭到欺淩,例如打欖球時被外國小朋友刻意衝撞、上歷史課時講到現代中國史遭到英國教師面帶冷笑,兩眼看著你,強調那時有一個名詞叫做「東亞病夫」(而班中有兩三個白人同學這時發生一陣低聲的哄笑),宿舍裡被人聲稱你做「Chinaman」,千萬不要以為可以去校長室投訴,然後預期校長在下周的周會裡,像包青天一樣一拍升堂木,點名欺淩你的那幾個外國小朋友予以痛斥,替你出一口氣。

英國的寄宿學校校長教師不會這樣做,原因不是種族歧視,也不是不知道昂貴的學費一分錢一分貨。他們只是相信:孩子一定要知道,即使走出此校校門、進入牛津劍橋,將在畢業後走出社會,隨時也會被人欺淩。

牛津校友林作在香港獨立特行,只是做他喜歡做的事,穿他認為心水的西裝,不也是因為他曾經擁有過港姐女友,或者不無引起眼紅嫉妒地遭到網民大規模欺淩?

我認識阿Joe,不敢說與他很熟,因為我沒有讀過牛津。但是Joe Lam面對網絡欺淩時的冷靜與不屈很令我佩服。因為這就是哈羅公學、邱吉爾校友的那一家貴族學校教會的第一課。

大人物如邱吉爾在國會中也一度遭到欺淩。他們認為他是廢老,黃金時間已經過去,在下議院冷嘲熱諷,但後來怎樣?沒有了邱吉爾,英國陷入了Darkest Hour,慘遭希特勒欺淩,直到他們請出這位他們一度欺淩過的政治家出山為止。

最近我為了幫助家長,提供BNO加英國寄宿學校的綜合顧問服務,拉埋城中某才子,推銷了一些可靠的樓盤。助人為快樂之本,我希望家長孩子在英國找到好歸宿,推銷時相當落力,但想不到引致香港一批經紀商,向英國發展財團集體指名道姓投訴。我也慘遭欺淩。

當然行有行規,有時我不慎撈了過界,尤其當今行行都難搵食的寒冬。正如林作和麥明詩牛津劍橋畢業,一度投身娛樂圈,火速上位,也被視為撈過界。

但是拜託,請這些經紀若有不滿,不要事事抱英國人的大腿投訴。大家都想香港人有一個幸福的歸宿,正如我們也幫助了大家,令經紀朋友見客時也借過我的膊頭說:這個盤Samuel推銷之後很紅,他自己也買了幾個?

歡迎互相借膊,賺錢其次,良心最重要。這兩個星期,遭到某種程度的欺淩,但我沒有放在心上。

Samuel雖然譯名撒姆耳,但耶穌十二門徒之一,Samuel畢竟不是聖人。Samuel沒有因此而患上抑鬱症或要找心理醫生。希望香港各行業的人,都賦予寬容的空間,大難臨頭不要互相踐踏。

至於那一點點欺淩引起的不快,請相信我,對於在英國讀寄宿學校的香港仔,一切只是過渡,有如青春期,你照鏡時一度不太快樂的那幾顆暗瘡。

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.
