【頭條日報】要睡了

入秋之時,人總會變得格外感性。今年見過的所有學生之中,以下這位給我留下最深刻的印象。

  

這個小男生和父母上來見過我兩次,每次會面都不太說話,態度卻是謙謙有禮。對我來說,孩子的喜好永遠比家長重要,因為畢竟要隻身遠赴他鄉讀書的是他們,要是他們不喜歡的話,就算我認為這家學校的環境有多清幽,設施如何齊備,也沒有人可以左右他們的選擇。

  

兩次見面,我多次嘗試撬開小男生的金口,但他也只是淡淡然的點頭。第三次見面,我終於忍不住在他父母面前問:「Ken,如果唔想去英國,不妨講出嚟,下年未做好心理準備咪後年先去囉。」

  

這時他的目光突然浮起一陣恐懼,然後便激動地說:「唔得,一定要即刻走。」我和他的父母也被Ken這個反應嚇呆了。

  

點解咁想走?Ken似乎知道自己剛才太激動了,慢慢又平靜下來,久久才吐出一句:「我想瞓覺。」吓?瞓覺?「我六點起身返學,學嘢又慢,放學要補習,又要做功課,好攰,每晚淨係瞓到四個鐘。」他低着頭說,不敢正視父母。然而,Ken其實不知道,原來父母這刻也不敢正視他。「下年要升中四,師兄師姐話要學嘢更加唔使旨意瞓。」Ken聲線漸漸收細。

  

父母的安排,其實是愛;子女無聲成全,何嘗又不是愛?但當我們表達愛的方法錯了,收場可能是沮喪的結局。怎樣愛,我們每天都在學習,學到小男生變成父親的一天,大概又是另一番滋味在心頭。

  

《頭條日報》要改版,這是我今年最後一篇專欄,我要感謝蕭生的提攜,感謝呂Sir的教導,感謝星島集團的護航。寫了兩年,各單位的愛,滴滴在心頭,成就了無數學生的成長。我們除了感動,便是感激。電郵:

#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.
