【立場新聞】信者得救 — Foundation

六月是考試的旺季,眼看香港中學生陷入煉獄的心理狀態,我要以慈悲的角度善意提醒一聲:不要怕,在地球的某一處,還有一個救贖的天堂,叫做 Foundation Course。

所謂基礎課程,是英國的大學憐憫遠東某一填鴨式教育制度發明出來的升學中介站。

有如佛學的信仰:若人生前做善事多,死後想進入涅槃境界,中間有一個過渡中介站,叫做極樂世界。極樂世界就是進入天堂之前的羅湖,或者高鐵香港這一端的西九站。全靠有了一年為期的 Foundation Course,可以拯救無數生靈:DSE 不如理想,甚至在英國讀書,A Level 稍欠一個 A 或一個 B,大學教育不會遺棄你,有如耶穌基督不會遺棄每一個人,只要你肯回頭,答應自己:你還想一心向上,那麼 Foundation Course 會伸開雙臂歡迎你。

不,我不會說 Foundation Course 是贖罪的一年, 雖然大學指定你入讀,希望你以前若還沉迷手機電競遊戲的,在這一年請真心暫時戒除,將眼睛和心靈回歸書本。這一年,只是借給你某某大學的一件 T 恤讓你穿著,先製造一種感覺,令你覺得是大學的學生。

但其實你還不是。大家只是先友後婚。你只是預備組,還不是正規軍,只是阿根廷政府津貼一點錢,在街頭組織街童,開始踢足球,你還不是國家隊,更不是馬勒當拿。

畢竟英國的教育,像基督教一樣大愛包容,不會遺棄任何一個孩子。

因此,在六月功課繁忙,考試煎熬的季節,在你身處煉獄的時刻,請不要忘記,一念天堂,一念地獄,人間的終點,還有一個極樂世界。

當然不論基督教還是佛教,最終進入天人合一的境界,還是要你積德,在生時要做好事。Foundation Course 不是讓任何人都能擠上車再補買票的。而是在你人生中最後一次給你的保外就醫。趁這小小的黃金時刻,快將你的病醫好,重投社會。

#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.
