五件你不知道關於英國寄宿學校的事(下) (中文版)

(三) 體育運動和考試同等重要 

因工作關係,近年我有機會在大大小小的院校及其寬廣校園、運動場流連參觀。就個人觀察與及從學生、校長的口中得知,現代教育模式已經不再停留在學科課程之上加幾項額外運動,令學習生活表面平衡。取而代之,學校傾向以較全面的校本戶外教育課程,包括利用校園範圍的樹林、湖泊等,去曲線協助同學達成學科的理想期望。
 

有說學校大力鼓勵學生參與體育運動理所當然,因為校方投資了大量金錢來建設偌大的體育中心、以英畂計算的運動場、人造草場、甚至哥爾夫球場、馬廐和樹林裡的歷奇建設。我不同意這是純粹的成本效益考慮。不少學校長久以來已建立了健康生活的校園文化,聘請專業教練,安排練習及比賽讓學生培養運動技能。況且,個人運動項目可以訓練自我約束能力及毅力;隊際運動則可以孕育團隊精神和與人相處之道,學校何樂而不為?
 

根據個人經驗,我相信學校重視運動和學業雙線發展是正確的方向。 學生一方面會學懂運用頂級運動設施、享受體育運動的樂趣,另一方面也知道在課室要專注上課及認真對待功課。而且體能訓練同時鍛練意志,有助學生發展成長。


 

(四) 在台上我覓理想

寄宿學校是展示才華的好地方。只要努力付出,總有機會與回報。回憶當年雖不是唱家班也不善表演,卻也上台參與音樂劇的製作和演出,那份滿足感到今天仍覺得驕傲。
 

英國有些專門培訓音樂的學校,以音樂為課程核心,也提供整體教育。其他學校雖不以音樂為教育目標,但依然鼓勵學生參與音樂相關的課外活動,如學習樂器或加入合唱團。
 

經過連串的英國校園遊,我發現學校會利用音樂拉近人與人的距離,甚至把不同堂、群體,都連在一起。寄宿學校傳統會要求學生參與舍堂的話劇表演,包括藝術製作及演出活動,演出當日對全校來說都是大日子。每個崗位事前都有大量準備工夫,亦會招待鄰近社區人士參與欣賞。學生面對如此場面,或許會有點兒壓力,但肯定從中感到無比快樂,也提升自信心。


 

(五) 特權階級

擔當學校風紀或宿舍長,學生會享受某些權利,繼而建立自信和責任感。維持學校秩序,多少讓學生感到自豪,自然願意承擔責任。領袖生還要在早上、下午小休及集會時負責控制低年級的紀律。作為宿舍長,要協助保持舍堂秩序及組織舍堂隊伍參與比賽。
 

說到權利,學校風紀可以穿著不同顏色的外套,用餐時可以插隊,甚至走在低年級不准進入的草地上。他們更可以在晩餐時飲用自己預備的飲品,又可以使用特定的樓梯,好不威風。


如此責任重大的領袖生崗位,絶對可以為你的履歷增添色彩並對未來帶來更多可能性。因此,不要少看當學生領袖的好處!

#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.
