【信報:升學專家分析】我不稀罕入哈羅
學童壓力大是香港社會的恆常話題,這些新聞我看了總是特別感同身受,因為曾幾何時我也因為無法承受香港的讀書壓力,被這個教育制度判決為「無用」,被老師一錘定音標籤成「垃圾」。年紀小小的我當時也相信了,覺得自己是個一事無成之輩,心理陰影面積大過我9歲身體所能承擔的。
 
人生轉捩點
這幾個禮拜,我活在奪得傑出校友獎的歡樂氛圍中,突然收到英國母校恭賀,校長更會在4月底來港。很老套,見Gresham’s一字,我卻會暗暗鼻酸,無限感觸。這間位於英國東部Norfolk的學校,當年接收了我這見香港來的垃圾,將我upcycle,為我這本被彈得一文不值的孩子增值,賦予了新生。它不單在成績上裝備我,還為我鍛煉出堅毅和勇氣,以應付後來升大學、讀碩士、創業等等人生挑戰。
 
Gresham’s School不只是一間學校,而是我人生的轉捩點。
 
Gresham’s一字在香港名不見經傳,不是伊頓、哈羅級數的顯赫名校,只是一所傳統的英國寄宿學校,毗鄰老式英國小鎮。但更重要的是,它入讀門欖雖然不是很高,卻注重為學生增值,也銳意要為學生提供全人教育,它真正做到了在追求「求學不是求分數」的理念,卻因為成功培養了學生的學習興趣,為學生建立自信、堅毅,而達到令他們學業分數大幅飆升的目的。
 
我常常不厭其煩地提醒家長揀學校不要只睇排名榜,我也很努力推介Gresham’s School、Mount Kelly這一類學校,須知這都不是銷售手段,而是我由衷的體驗。大台劇話齋:一個人輸了信心就乜都輸哂。我童稚的心靈當年便在香港教育制度下處於total loss。可是Gresham’s School挽救了我,它告訴我原來我並不愚笨,它為我示範了催谷考試以外的學習方法,它還給予我很多參與活動的機會:那些年,我夾band,我打波打校隊,我做個人畫展……我沒有考進了哈羅,沒有麥明思、林作等精英校友,但如果我入了,這些機會可能都不是屬於我的。在Gresham’s我得到的是老師的尊重,使我從放棄邊緣建立回自信,由無用垃圾變成傑出校友,都是靠這份無價「永不放棄」自信一直推動我自今。
