前途的裁縫-為你度身訂造

有一位同事向我介紹了一套動畫的其中一集:一位媽媽由細到大都想留一把長長的頭髮,想考入某知名大學,並考入某機電公司的管理層。她因為家庭的原因無法實現一直的願望,到生孩子後,就逼她的兒子留長髮,催谷成績,要求他考入當年考不進的名牌大學,入當年的機電公司。



故事中這位小孩子沒有自我,不敢反抗母親,每一次嘗試頂咀,就受到暴力對待。他甚至自述,自己的人生是媽媽的take 2,自己只是一路實現她沒有實現的一切。



聽到這裡,我已急不及待想看那一套動畫。劇情雖然有點誇張,但這種是,不是也有發生在現實社會嗎?



一些父母在孩子出生時已經有一系列的計畫,想孩子們成為自己塑造的角色,想他們跟著自己安排的路去走。沒法子成為音樂家,就要孩子學樂器;沒有強健體格做運動員,就由孩子代替完夢。



作為父母,確實難以避免將自己想要的加於孩子身上。但必須要記住,每一個人都是獨立存在的個體,人生都走著不一樣的路,而教育,就是為孩子的前途和未來而設的一個裁縫-每人的路都應該是度身訂造的。



你的孩子或許骨格精奇,但喜歡音樂;或許他有精密的數學頭腦,但更喜歡讀莎士比亞名著;教育就有一種能力,像度身訂造的西裝,闊胸膛窄腰圍,度身訂造,舒適而稱身,讓你走路時更自如。



倒過來說,如果孩子的路是根據父母的期望而訂造,則有可能衣不稱身,造得太窄,全身覺得處處壓逼;造得太寬大,則容易「左腳棘右腳」把自己絆倒。



所以,家長們都應該記住,你們未必是最完美的裁縫,裁出最好的教育路,但你們也擔當著重要角色,幫學生們找一個合適的裁縫。

#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.
