英女王效應

早前英國威廉王子與凱蒂外訪不丹和印度,舉手投足都備受注目;英女王伊莉莎伯九十大壽,國民更走上街開派對大肆慶祝,盡顯其顯赫地位。

 

雖說英國王室並無實權,但王室在英國人心中總帶着某種微妙的情意結。看著英國國民對英女王的熱愛之情,不禁讓人好奇:是什麼原因令這位有名無實的「統治者」仍可得到國民的愛戴?

 

英女王登基至今64年,是英國有史以來在位時間最長的君主。女王雖有特權任命首相,卻不能干預國會的施政決定。她專門出席各種國家慶典、接待外賓,以及每年在新的國會會期發表一篇講話,但需保持政治中立。

 

王室生活看似風光,但由於英女王自己帶頭樹立榜樣,王室成員的生活都儘量保持節儉。自1992年起,女王和菲臘親王開始向政府繳稅,每年大約付240萬英鎊。她亦會想辦法讓王室開源節流,如開放白金漢宮予遊客參觀。今年二月就有媒體拍到她度假完畢後選擇用火車而非直升機代步,十分為一眾英國國民的荷包著想。

另外,女王對子女要求嚴格,認為身為王室也需要參軍、服役,希望他們也能成為人民的榜樣。這也是她深得民心的原因之一。

 

英女王學識淵博,精通幾國語言。但她深知自己的定位,不會隨便濫用個人權力。孩童時期的她是在王宮裏接受家庭教育,師資極為優良。當年由Eton College校長Henry Marten負責私人教授她歷史課。

 

今年英女王九十歲生日實行與眾同樂,當日第一個行程便是會見一眾在溫莎堡外祝賀她誕辰的民眾,之後又和一班同樣九十歲生日的長者一起午聚慶祝。另外,她今年的生日蛋糕外表看似簡單,其實是出自BBC Great British Bake Off比賽冠軍Nadiya Hussain之手。女王今次反傳統點名穆斯林甜點師Nadiya製作生日蛋糕,亦贏得不少掌聲。

一位沒有實權的皇室成員仍能受盡愛戴,相反很多手握大權的領導人卻無法得到民心;英女王完美示範了要讓人心悅誠服,有一顆為人民設想和服務的心尤其重要。

 

事頭婆,好嘢!

#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.
