【頭條日報:校友直播室】Jimmy Choo殿堂級謙卑厚道


說過類似說話的人好多,但出自一位殿堂級icon口中,份量與味道截然不同。早前我作客於英國駐馬來西亞領使館,晚宴上周仰傑語重心長地以此番話警醒我們這班後輩,席上每位都肅然起敬。周仰傑是誰?他的英文名一講出來便如雷貫耳:連英女皇及已故戴安娜皇妃也對他的鞋趨之若鶩、舉世著名設計師Jimmy Choo是也。


Jimmy Choo的謙遜,來自優秀的家教。他生於馬來西亞檳城,父親也是造鞋,Jimmy十一歲已能做出第一雙鞋。有子才華洋溢若此,周爸爸沒有慣壞他,反而面提耳命小小的Jimmy要虛心學習,不懂的就要不恥下問。這兒子多年來也沒有把父親的教晦忘記,即使今日他已貴為拿督,即使他對英國製鞋及時裝產業的貢獻為他帶來OBE勳銜,即使Jimmy Choo兩字足以令全球型男酷女尖叫,Jimmy始終保存着父親教導他的謙卑厚道,Jimmy Choo的鞋子時尚前衛,但其為人卻有老式念舊的一面,例如他感念英國文化協會在他未闖出名堂前曾助他建立人脈關係,他被委任為英國校友國際大使後,便親力親為團結各地的英國校友。例如我和他認識後,儘管每次見面都只能短敍,但他永遠會殷切地追問我的近況,又把我到處介紹給在場人士。他對後輩真的很照顧提攜,常教導分享待人處世之道。

老實講,不論是時裝舞台上的Jimmy Choo,或是舞台下的Jimmy都是我的偶像,而我這位小占粉竟能得到他亦師亦友的關懷支持,真是不知幾生修到的福氣。

#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.
