【Oh!爸媽】英國中小學明年起必修性教育 香港仍裹足不前

香港與英國學校的性教育截然不同,事實上,英國即將規定學生在年少時開始接觸性教育……

英國主要報章《The Telegraph》最近的一篇報道,分析當地性教育現況。由2020年起,性教育將納入為全英國中小學的必修課程,小學生首先接觸人際關係教育(relationships education),至中學時,則會進一步探討人際關係教育與性教育(sex and relationships education)。

英國主要報章《The Telegraph》最近的一篇報道,分析當地性教育現況。由2020年起,性教育將納入為全英國中小學的必修課程,小學生首先接觸人際關係教育(relationships education),至中學時,則會進一步探討人際關係教育與性教育(sex and relationships education)。

 

英國教育部處理性教育的思維,讓我想到香港目前的情況。

研究報告指出,本港14至25歲青少年的不安全性行為有上升趨勢,毋疑與缺乏適當教育有關。現時香港的性教育毋須獨立成科,學生在校內獲得的性知識有限;同時,不少香港家庭的價值觀偏向保守及傳統,並不鼓勵子女在家中討論與性有關的議題,兩者加起來,情況令人感憂慮。

1998至2005年在Gresham’s School留學時,有一科名為Personal, Social, Health and Economic education(PSHE)。這門課並不如英語、數學等主科般頻密,大約每兩週一堂,不用考試,亦不會有評分,顧名思義涵蓋健康、人際關係及生活等,而性教育是其中一個重要元素。課室裏都是青少年,談論與性有關的議題難免有點尷尬,偶爾更有同學發出緊張的笑聲,但這些討論顯然有助澄清誤解,也減少了「性」的距離感。現在回望,我認為這是很好的處理方式,也是英式教育又一個值得欣賞之處。

網絡世界充斥色情資訊,年輕人容易被誤導,以致對性的觀念出現偏差。事實上,學校在傳授學術知識之餘,更應該指導學生認識生活中的基本課題。假如香港能夠跟隨英國的步伐,更加重視性教育,將是提高學生對性關係的理解,同時幫助年輕人建立正確態度、成熟及負責任地對待性關係的重要一步。

#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.
