【信報:出國留學好處多】名校Secret
早前提及過自己沒考進什麼名校,但母校卻能幫到我。有網友嘲諷我「酸葡萄」, 驅使我更想鑽研名校究竟有何秘密。復活節期間,我一名學生返港度假,很有心地上辦公室探我,我乘機探問她就讀的Cheltenham Ladies’ College有何特別之處。
 
16歲的Trinity說,校方大力鼓勵同學參與不同活動,從而發揮潛能-這基本上是英國寄宿學校的核心價值,聽來沒什麼大不同。Trinity又說多得學校有電腦科學的科目,令她有機會接觸Coding-開辦電腦科的學校多的是,也不見得有多特別。
 
然而,15分鐘後,她改變了我的想法。
 
激起火熱心 
Trinity雙眼發光地補充,她對Coding的熱情一發不可收拾,因為編碼背後的邏輯令她入迷。她奇怪很多女生抗拒電腦科學,故很想吸引更多女生進入這個令人目眩的世界。她立馬在Cheltenham本地辦基礎Coding班,後來她隨家人往緬甸旅行,見到當地的小孩尤其是女生,別說coding,就連基本電腦技能也沒有。Trinity以前在倫敦實習時,任務是製作Podcast,她靈機一觸,創辦了Girls for CS,製作了一系列關於電腦使用的Podcast,想以最經濟有效方法把電腦知識在緬甸學生間廣傳。陸陸續續,不單在緬甸,甚至越南及柬埔寨也有學校採用她的Podcast作教材。製作Podcast需要資金,她便在學校CLC舉行慈善活動募捐。
 
Trinity深信知識就是力量,她的心願是為這些資源匱乏地區的孩子(特別是女孩)在數碼化的世界作好裝備。我問Trinity暑假有何打算,她回答正計劃和朋友設計網站。她們有感互聯網世界資訊質素參差,想發動世界各地的朋友圈,建立一個有質素的資訊銀行,並促進世界各地年輕人透過這平台分享及討論國際的時事議題。
 
短時間內,Trinity介紹了她的興趣,真不敢相信她才16歲,她給我的印象就是一個字:Bright。像她這樣的女生,前途必定也很Bright。我不期然回想16歲的自己究竟在做什麼?而這一席話最令我難忘的,不是Trinity的能力多大,反而是她對知識那種火熱的渴求。
 
我明白了:名校與別不同之處,正是能燃起學生心中求知那把火。
