【頭條日報:留英得着】榮耀歸母校和隊友

小弟獲英國文化協會頒發的英國傑出校友獎,連日接到的恭賀訊息不斷,除了感激,也只有感激。最想多謝的,是母校華威大學,沒有其提名,就沒有我陳思銘,另外也想多謝一直在推動英國升學路上與我並肩作戰的團隊戰友,沒有他們的支持推動,也沒有今日英識的陳思銘。

小弟當日在華威修讀經濟碩士,今日與團隊卻是在升學教育界打江山,兩者彷彿大纜都扯唔埋,但中間其實有一個微妙的關連。

話說當日我在華威上第一堂,教授Peter Burnell兩手空空前來,連課程綱要也沒有。他一來便反主為客,不向我們解釋自己在新學期會教授甚麼,反而問我們想學甚麼,在座同學包括我都啞口無言。

可是在他引導下,熱烈的討論馬上展開,同學你一言我一語,立時就熟絡了。教授不但引領我們問問題,也指引我們看問題的癥結,更重要是促進了大家之間的溝通和合作,建立出團隊精神,過程中更提升了大家的商議技巧和解決問題的能力。

第一天上堂,我便學到了經濟學以外重要的一課。自己出來創業,我聘用許多二十來歲的年輕人,與這些後生同事開會,我從不會擺出一副阿媽教仔的姿態,反而用以前學到的技巧,以推動溝通為先,鼓勵集思廣益,同事們都是後生仔女,在輕鬆氣氛下,討論便更趨建設性,各隊友亦更能發揮所長。

求學不是求分數,也不只為求知識,在學習過程中學到的思考方法、批判性思維和待人接物技巧,這些才都是可轉移的軟技能,放諸四海都能派上用場。感恩母校華威大學給我在這些軟技能上作了最佳的裝備,令我懂得如何引導我的隊友盡情發揮他們所長。今次能得到英國傑出校友獎的是小弟本人,但真正的光環,應落在母校與隊友頭上。

#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.
