【信報】媽媽級創業家

寄宿學校不單是學生成長學習的地方,它實在更是促進人生蛻變之所,讓溫室小花搖身變成有獨立思考、具自理能力、既能自處又懂與人相處的個體。

本人口講無憑,所以我會經常鼓勵家長及同學仔去參考一些曾經寄宿學校洗禮的成功人士個案,從他們的經歷了解寄宿教育如何對他們日後的成功有著關鍵及舉足輕重的影響。

Jennifer Chin就是個值得參考的人辦。近日城中不少家長認識Jennifer,皆因她的網上教育平台whizpa.com廣受歡迎。本身是媽媽級的她過去十年也像許多香港家長,面對為仔女尋求優質教育的艱辛任務頻撲又費心,她希望為子女選擇到有滿足感兼有啓發性的教育,可是發現坊間教育資訊都多是官樣文章,中肯誠實的評論甚少,令家長徬徨無助得很。體會過箇中苦況,Jennifer致力要就關於兒童教育、活動、產品及服務提供一個具誠信評論的平台,希望可以為全城家長提供觸指可及的客觀資訊。

Jennifer有的不單是heart,且還有成績,透過一個專為女創業家眾籌的平台,她在短短兩個月內籌到超過八千美元,大大超過了原本五千美金的目標,平台推出後亦贏得本地家長的囗碑讚賞。

Jennifer或者不太符合一般人心目中資訊創業家廿幾歲的青澀形象,但她有想法,有毅力,有堅持,這些特質她都歸功於英國寄宿學校生涯培養出來的。其實Jennifer來頭不小,在英國著名女子寄宿學校Malvern Girls College ( 今日 Malvern St. James School for Girls)畢業後,她在劍橋大學先後得到電子工程系的學士及碩士學位,之後的二十年在投資銀行及教育界工作,現在Jennifer全身投入她的網站,將她的知識經驗及心血全盤傾注在她的熱情:兒童教育上。

Jennifer說,寄宿學校將她鍛練成一個有對知識充滿好奇,具自律自我鞭策能力,面對艱難不輕言放棄、懂得觀察適應生存環境潛規則的人。寄宿學校的經驗就像是個有源源不絕寶貴秘笈的錦囊,不論是學業、事業及創業路上,去到哪裏學到的都令她受用無窮。作為一個以客觀見稱教育平台的創辦人,她對寄宿學校是大力推薦的。

#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.
