【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】軟技能是這樣煉成的

早前有特別任務須遠赴英國,親身視察了當地學生一些野外活動,覺得非常值得與大家分享。



該校位於英國南部,鄰近有不少「風吹草低見牛羊」的壯觀草原美景。學校安排的活動之一,是要同學來到郊外一間簡陋不堪的農屋度宿一宵。活動的高潮,是宰割野兔然後燒烤。我問他們難道不害怕嗎?他們淡定地答:「當你把牠們看成是食物,便沒什麼好怕了。」哈!能學懂從另一個角度看事物,當中的智慧與勇氣,相信便是從這樣的處境中訓練出來。



另一項活動,是跑泥漿及懸崖跳水。同學們要在泥沼遊走,滿身上下都是泥污;首要克服的,自然是怕髒的心理。況且置身泥氹當中,舉步為艱,體力意志缺一不可,也很講求團隊精神。難得所有年輕同學對髒對苦毫不畏縮,嘻哈叫囂中你拉著我,我扶着你,把污穢險阻視作閒事,連我這個塘邊鶴也禁不住要為他們喝采。

 


跑完了泥漿,來到一秀麗的小湖,湖邊有四個不同高度的懸崖,首三個懸崖,同學們在聆聽過導師的指導後,都能輕易一躍而下,在湖水中一洗身上污垢。來到第四個懸崖,高達二十米,望到也心寒。同學們陸續挑戰成功,唯獨有個男生,在崖邊猶豫不決,即使導師及同學為他打氣良久,還都鼓不起勇氣,大家以為他是要放棄了,怎知千鈞一髮間,他突然縱身一跳,最終在全體歡呼中從水裏游上岸,那刻他臉上寫滿自豪,大呼值得:「把恐懼克服之後,你就不再受它支配了。」

 


這兩項活動,沒有教曉學生甚麼可以在天才表演或入學面試一展身手的技能,也沒有甚麼獎章證書來印證成就。然而,同學們從中得到的軟技能,卻是無價。



外國一些優秀學府,正正非常重視為學生裝備這些軟技能。他們強調學生要在各種活動中學會堅毅、學會合作、學會在恐懼面前冷靜面對。把恐懼克服,換來的便是自信。這一份對自己的信念,在人生旅途可是受用無窮。



我常常跟本地家長強調,為子女海外升學選擇學校,要注重學校對這些軟技能的栽培,不要只着眼於排名,關於這點,我下星期會在這裏跟大家詳談。
