【信報:寄宿學校攻略】突破讀寫障礙
科學家愛因斯坦、披頭四靈魂人物約翰連儂、維珍航空總裁布蘭森、荷里活巨星湯告魯斯有什麼共同之處?
 
對了,他們都是在自己範疇中獨領風騷的頂尖人物,但這還不止,原來他們都患有讀寫障礙。他們都是印證了學習障礙與成功並沒有相互排斥的人辦。
 
數據顯示,每10個學童就有一個患有讀寫障礙,患者在學習時會面對很多實際困難,但更嚴重的是,他們的自信心大受打擊,令他們無法發揮實力。只不過,如果教育上能因應他們的需要作出調節配合,這些有特殊需要的學生也能有出色的成就,英國的Jack Harley-Walsh便為我們做了很好的示範。
 
學障專家指導 
Jack患有嚴重的學習障礙,他不單有讀寫障礙,還有計算功能障礙。學習上的種種困難,令他找學校處處碰壁,將他拒諸門外的學校達30間之多。幸好最後Jack來到了英國威爾斯的私校St Davis’s College,這所學校以提供學習障礙專家指導的教育而聞名,半數學生有各種程度的學習障礙。在互動的小班教學,定期的個別輔導,以及各種額外的支援下,Jack的成績突飛猛進,自信心亦大躍升。他發現自己的能力原來一跡被傳統的教育人士誤解,現在他如釋重負:「許多一向以為自己做不來的事情,現在我都做到了,真令我鬆一大口氣。」
 
Jack非常感激學校的教學方式:「他們教曉我學習的方法……我不必再為跟隨傳統的教育方法而掙扎。」
 
早在10歲時,Jack為慈善攀爬上Kilimanjaro山而成為新聞人物,名噪一時。他年紀小小時已有一顆助人的熱心及過人的毅力,至今未變。今日他仍然很熱心社區及公益工作,他的貢獻令他成為英國讀寫障礙協會2015年的年度大獎得主。他現在正準備考取7科GCSE,志願成為英國皇家空軍的工程師。
 
校長Stuart Hay讚揚Jack的堅毅,是同齡學童中鮮見的。「Jack是我們學校的寶貴資產,其他學校沒有發掘到他的潛質,是他們的損失。」其實年既輕輕的Jack對社會的熱誠和貢獻,足以令很多成年人汗顏。如果沒有St David’s College這樣的學校給予Jack所需要的土壤茁壯成長,真正蒙受損失的,還是我們整個社會。

#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.
