矮仔打Rugby

體育在香港有特別的角色。無論政府如何大力推動體育盛事,投放多少資源,成效總不及私人企業以體育為本的marketing活動,渣打馬拉松和Hong Kong Sevens香港七人檻球就是好例子。

 

而我有幸受AVIVA的好朋友Lilian和Sabina邀請,在星期五晚上和兩位美女看球賽,what a Friday night!

 

雖然Hong Kong Sevens不像渣馬一樣誰都可以參加,但作為觀眾,那種現場氣氛和外國人的熱情確實令全場熱血沸騰。亦令我回想起當年在寄宿學校打Rugby的日子。

 

「上呀!」「Tom! On your left!」「Catch it Ben!」「Yeah!!」Tom and Ben Youngs是我在學時的好朋友,也是學校Rugby隊的隊員,今天已是英國國家隊成員。作為典型Asian,在兩位英國鬼仔旁邊身型當然相形見絀,但他們沒所謂,還說我身形較小較靈活,可以協助中線突圍,然後我們三人就成了Gresham’s Rugby三俠(我自稱)。

 

懷著一絲興奮和期待在想,不知Tom和Ben有沒有參加Hong Kong Sevens呢?雖然眼睛捉不到他們的身影,但一直看著球場上的汗水和聽著球員的叫喊聲,彷彿看見了十年前的三劍俠影子。

 

不止是英國,在世界各地,體育活除了反映團隊精神,堅毅不屈的求勝心,還是一種微妙的友誼搖籃。在球場上勝利時大家會歡笑,輸波會不服氣不開心,傳得差射偏了會和隊友吵架,但這種種回憶片段都是築起友誼之牆的一塊塊磚。

 

細心想想,我們是否將體育一事過於量化、數字化呢?政府如何支持體育取決於回報的多少;同學們做運動與否也要計算對學業成效多大,做運動員能否賺錢養家。運動帶出的是一種精神上的滿足,和未必是即使能看見的長遠回報,而且是無價的。唔,不如約Tom和Ben在球場上聚一聚。

#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.
