【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】贏在起跑線?

為部署孩子將來負笈海外,自幼送孩子上國際學校,以為可佔優勢,其實乃屬謬誤,稍將目光放遠,教育為學做人,以鋪排將來幸福快樂人生為目的,如今又何須拘泥讀甚麼類型的幼稚園與小學,只要在負笈海外前學好中文,能掌握讀、聽、講、寫,日後回來發展定有裨益。

香港孩子應從小學好中文、涉獵中國文化及歷史,先在香港的中西化匯聚氛圍中成長及學習,將來負笈海外升學,在不同文化的價值觀念才有所體會,日後更能分辨是非善惡。

坊間所謂「贏在起跑線」意義膚淺,孩子兩歲未夠要排隊爭入play-group,為了上名牌幼稚園,然後是小學,派不到好的就轉去私立或國際學校,如斯情況漸成羊群心理,造就所謂升小專家應運而生,鋪天蓋地以技術分析升小機會,家長如癡如醉,間接扭曲教育生態,催化虎媽推孩子上戰場。

要孩子成才,除學習語文、數學以及生活知識外,提供空間讓孩子接觸各式各樣的文化、體育、音樂、藝術、戶外活動等尤為重要,可從中可發掘孩子的潛能和喜惡,然後去蕪存菁,加以栽培;所以最適宜入讀毋須乘車可達的幼稚園及小學,步行十分鐘之內最理想,慳回上學的交通時間,換來孩子活動時間及空間,在活動經歷或學得更多。「贏在起跑線」不應是爭入play-group、名牌幼稚園與小學般膚淺吧!

筆者邀請了英國A-level排名十大院校Queen Ethelburga's College(QE)校長Dan Machin在七月四日來港出席講座,解構A-level新制對將來申請英國大學的影響,以及QE的獨有變革以GCSE去配合新制A-level申請大學;有意申請QE,可帶備近三年成績表與校長面談。學校新近建成新宿舍,今年九月尚有小量寄宿學額;報名出席可WhatsApp︰6107-5222,查詢可電3184-0876,《頭條日報》讀友優先。

#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.
