【頭條日報:升學專家有話兒】圖書館是寶

有人問婚姻顧問,娶老婆最重要睇乜?婚姻顧問話,識睇一定睇吓未來外母,從伯友的身材面貌,不單可猜度到老婆外表的未來走勢,亦因為媽媽是女生最接近的女性模範,她將來為人妻為人母的方式,將會大受媽咪影響。

如果有人問升學顧問,揀學校最重要睇乜?本人就會表示,識睇一定睇其圖書館,一間好的學校,一定有間設備完備的圖書館。圖書館受到重視,這學校就壞極有限。假如話,從媽咪身上可看出女孩子的家教,那麼從圖書館,便能看到學校對學生獨立學習的重視。

香港家長迷信學校排名榜,然而排名榜只能告訴你一間學校的成績如何,但是這成績是怎樣打造出來的呢?是全校上下集體捉着學生的手,苦苦鞭策催谷出來,抑或是學校營造優良的學習氣氛,學生在薰陶感染下,對學習產生濃厚興趣,對自己精益求精而達致的成果?

或者有家長會覺得,只要子女成績好,是前者或後者,無傷大雅。但其實當中牽連甚大,如果學生只有在學校家長催迫下才能取得佳績,學習環境一變,例如上到大學,學習自由度驟增,他們便會不懂得如何推動管理自己的學習,成績一落千丈。相反,如果學生一早被培養獨立學習,不管所處環境如何,他們都會有方法持續自己的學習興趣,他們不單會曉得如何運用資源,他們自己也會變得resourceful。

或者問,為甚麼獨立學習的端倪,還得看學校的圖書館呢?答案是,圖書館是滿足學生求知欲的寶庫,一間學校肯投資在圖書館上,必定是因為學校培養出來的學生都擁有很強求知欲,而且要滿足他們這求知欲,並不單靠課堂填鴨式授課,而是靠學生自發式的尋寶。所以從一間學校的圖書館,我們識睇的真的可以睇到很多,下星期我會續談。

#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.
