【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】非凡資優生需要非凡栽培

香港父母都希望仔女叻,贏在起跑線都不夠,若能生個在陰陽結合時DNA已經勝人一籌的資優生,是許多家長恨到流口水的終極夢想。

曾經聽過教育界中人形容,真正的資優生只可用「非同凡響」來形容,這些非凡的小朋友真的如中了基因六合彩的金多寶頭獎,智力之高達到令人側目的地步。據講,資優生大都有一些共通的地方:他們有無法滿足的好奇心,喜歡不停發問,也沉醉看書。他們有超越常人的理解力,並能將理解到的融會貫通。聰明的孩子舉一反三,高度資優的孩子是舉一反十,兼往往可以將道理應用到看似九唔搭八的範疇內。

如此叻到核爆的細路哥,很想要吧?

然而外國有數據顯示,資優生長大後並非全部都升官發財飛黃騰達。不少資優兒童聰明反被聰明誤,長大後無法在社會找到自己的位置,變成迷失邊緣的一群,鋃鐺入獄的囚犯中屬於「前資優兒童」的為數不少。

如果每個孩子都是一朵花需要我們悉心栽培,資優生便是非常罕有兼極度脆弱的奇葩,要以適合他們的特殊方法栽培,當中不乏挑戰困難。在英國,教育界愈來愈明白資優生有特別支援的需要,故設立一個名為NACE挑戰獎項,用來表揚對資優生栽培不遺餘力並成績驕人的學校。有此殊榮的學校包括Bedford Prep School、Felsted Prep School、The Abbey School及Holme Grange等。這些學校理解到資優生的智力超乎常人,但情緒心理卻仍然與同齡兒童無異。他們擁有異乎尋常的學習能力,有無限潛能可發揮,卻需要一個不會對他們投以特殊眼光的環境,令他們也可以享受一個正常童年。教育扶持資優生成長其實是件非常艱巨的任務,不是一般家長或學校可以輕易實踐得來,這些NACE學校面對挑戰而能做得如此出色,值得我們鼓掌打氣。

#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.
