【頭條日報:留英專家分享】置死地而後生

「What doesn't kill you makes you stronger」,是我想向今年DSE考得不好的同學講的。人生路漫長,一次考試不足論一生成敗,有時候失敗所迸發出的爆炸力,往往更厲害。

經驗告訴我們,失敗,有時只為將來行得更遠。

早前看到何鴻燊的訪問,何博士份屬何東家族後人,曾家道中落,經歷重重挫折,才成就今天的傳奇。他的故事令我深受啓發,想起我在英國唸預科時,本一心想讀建築,但阿爸一句:「建築一讀要七年喎。」不得不打退堂鼓,建築師夢碎。當時自覺英文好,讀法律似是最正路,自己也成功考入法律系,可惜幾個月下來,我才如夢初醒:讀法律不只要英文好!於是又一次,我處於人生交叉點⋯⋯

那段日子,現在想來都幾灰,轉科又讀唔上又要再轉科,我簡直是個典型讀書失敗的例子!幸好後來入到經濟系,得學校栽培和自己努力,學士畢業後修讀政治經濟碩士,再回港創業,今日有幸獲英國文化協會傑出校友的榮譽,我覺得總算對自己、對父母、對母校有個交代。

回望那段自覺很失敗的日子,其實在挫敗打擊中,我學到很多一帆風順學不到的東西,同時磨鍊我的意志。跌倒過又企得返起身,加強了對自己的信念,足以裝備我走日後的路。

再看看身邊朋友,他們不少也有過loser的過去。中學成績差,後來去英國讀書,陸續找到自己頭上的一片天,今日有的從事i-banking,有的擁有自己生意,都是人生勝利組。失敗的一頁,只是為鋪出他們青雲路的一塊踏腳石。

我想同今屆DSE考得不好的同學講,失敗可以是個寶貴的學習過程,重點是你有沒有在失敗中學到教訓,有沒有從中鍛煉出勇氣,有沒有在灰燼中化身鳳凰而重生。不被失敗打敗,你今後只能變得更強。

老土再講多句,條條大路通羅馬,想到英國鯉魚翻身,call我6107 5222。

#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.
