【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】友情、親情; 寄宿生涯意外收穫

將年紀加埋過半百兼地道香港仔的農夫,放到英國名牌中學體驗寄宿生活,聽到都已經搞笑非常,叫人引頸以待。雖說有conflict才有drama,不過個人覺得,陸永和C君這組合有個特質,跟英國寄宿學校很合「何尺」的,就是他們間濃厚的友情,在寄宿生之間不難找到。

  

C君和陸永平日鮮有攬頭攬頸,也不會將「好兄弟、好朋友」掛在嘴邊,可是他們的默契真是無出其右,言行中也總透露着互相的照顧維護。兩人原來由中學認識至今,他們自己也承認這種友情是要在求學年代才能建立得到。

  

求學年代建立的友情很純真牢固,在寄宿學校尤其如此。很多家長很擔心子女在英國入讀寄宿學校,會孤獨無依。我就常以實例安慰他們,同學雖然在家受到百般呵護,寄宿學校陌生的環境為他們帶來衝擊挑戰,但年輕的他們勝在適應力強,而且有這麼多年紀相若的學生,他們每天作息與共,在想家的情緒中互有共鳴,在新環境新挑戰中互相照應,加上學校舉辦很多訓練團隊精神的活動,小夥子小女生一下便混熟,且共同經歷多了,友情自然更根深柢固。許多可以延續一生的友誼,便是在這樣的環境萌芽紮根的。

  

寄宿生涯不單容易贏得寶貴友誼,我還眼見有不少例子,同學與家人在升學後感情有改善。除因為absence makes the hearts grow fonder(不相見,倍思念),優秀的寄宿學校非常注重性格培養,透過有紀律的寄宿生活令學生從自我中走出來,知道自己不是宇宙的中心,學懂如何設身處地為他人着想,從而做到與人和諧相處。於是很多家長在暑假時驚喜地發現,之前家中唯我獨尊的小王子小公主,寄宿後除了懂得照顧自己,對家人也體貼有加。離家反成了家人感情變好的轉捩點,對不少家長來說,可是意想不到的收穫。

#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.
