教育可改變世界 — 婦女基金會創辦人Su-Mei

「婦女基金會」,在這熟悉的名字背後,有一位不一樣的女性。她敢於挑戰性別歧視、為女權發聲。她就是組織創辦人Su-Mei Thompson。至於她為何會成立基金會?一切就要由赴英留學講起。

 

刻苦耐勞 造就成功未來

「我十二歲赴英入讀CLC (Cheltenham Ladies’ College),後升讀劍橋。碩士在Lausanne修讀,我是第一個Dean’s List女生。」Su-Mei的過去殊不簡單。在馬來西亞出生的她,赴英後成績名列前茅,立定決心要有一番作為。

 

不過成功背後也有很多刻苦時候。「我家從不買洋娃娃和玩具。父母有遠見,將最好的教育帶給子女。有閒錢他們也寧願多買幾本書給我。」Su-Mei說。「六七十年代,多數馬來西亞人會送子女到英國或澳洲升學,我們選擇CLC也是因為學校享負盛名、校風純樸、成績優異。」升讀海外名校絕非貴族專利,懂得把握機會,力爭上游,誰也能像Su-Mei一樣闖出一片天。

校園生活啟發未來

CLC給你的印象如何?「難以用言語形容!學生逢周日都會穿著綠色校服,配上斗篷和棕色手套,那種古典高雅令人肅然起敬。不得不提的是,我在CLC中得到了真摯的友誼。CLC學校分舍,同舍生不論年級都會回舍堂進餐,學生從舍堂生活中建立出堅固而長久的友誼。」

 

聽到Su-Mei回憶中的CLC校園生活,令其他人都有著無限遐想。除了珍貴的友情,CLC還帶給Su-Mei甚麼?「學校幫助學生獲得卓越的學業成績外,亦為我們提供安全的成長環境、完善的設備;還有培養價值觀和待人處事的技巧,如團隊精神 (包括在工作上、生活上,以至玩樂);尊重、危機處理、獨立處事,與及一輩子的友誼…… 而最重要的,是學校訓練出我們的社會責任和貢獻精神。這是CLC的特色之一,我也當過學校的社會服務組織主席呢!」 CLC為Su-Mei奠定了未來的路,尤其是對社會的關注與責任感。

回饋社會 以生命影響生命

「寄宿生活是我生命中重要的部份。學校常鼓勵我們要勇於嘗試,勇於面對逆境。校園生活亦鍛煉了我的溝通技巧,在不同背景的組群間求同存異、爭取共識。」Su-Mei指,婦女基金會的成立亦是源於此:「我相信以往男性做到的事,女性都可以做到-如複雜的解難。社會對女性仍存有許多偏見,基金會以打破男女不平等為最終目標。」

 

校園生活令Su-Mei變得關心社會,但漫長的慈善事業,仍需要一份堅持下去的動力:「對我來說,現在是時候回饋社會,我很感激CLC給我的機會。在這裡工作,除了能夠感受改變社會的成就感,我更希望為別人的人生帶來良好的改變。婦女基金會舉辦不少領袖活動、生活技能班和女性領袖導師班,鼓勵年輕人相信自己,成就大事。能夠見證自己為世界帶來的改變,就是Su-Mei繼續慈善事業的最大動力。」

與Su-Mei交談,強烈地感受到她為社會出心出力的那團火。CLC在她年幼時播下種子,造就今天的她,以生命影響生命,無數年輕人正給她啟發。教育之義,不在分數,在於自省。能自省,則能改變世界,改變生命。

#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.
