【信報:寄宿學校攻略】寄宿創傷?(上)

對父母而言,讓孩子暫離身邊,入讀海外寄宿學校,從來不是一項容易的決定,背後原因往往是一片苦心,期望小朋友能接受優質教育,鍛煉毅力,迎接日後挑戰。


然而,近年外國有心理學家指,孩子自幼在寄宿學校成長,有機會因缺乏心靈灌溉,影響心理發展,如感到被遺棄、長大後不擅於表達情緒等。此話一出,旋即引起家長及教育界熱議,有前寄宿學生表示認同,有家長則力挺子女跟年輕時的自己一樣,十分享受愉快充實的寄宿生活,亦有評論指研究個案多建基於十多二十年前的宿生經驗,不能與現代寄宿同日而語。我作為寄宿過來人及教育升學顧問,對這議題亦有一番看法。


破繭而出

9歲那年,父母如我所願,讓我赴英升學,在Gresham’s School的8年寄宿生活,可謂是我的人生轉捩點。當時,校內華人學生數目不多,初抵埗時異鄉人的感覺時有來襲,然而清晰又有規律的作息時間、各式團體活動、加上一群朝夕相對的老師、學生,令我不消半年已融入新生活當中。濃厚的學術氛圍,更令在港成績平平的我重拾學習動力,於英國會考考獲8A/A*成績,繼而順利在當地一流學府完成碩士課程。當然,人在異地總有思鄉孤單之時,這份感覺令我更珍惜與家人的每個通訊,每刻相處時光。我亦特別感激父母當年的信任,助我從小建立獨立自主的素質。


溫室小花,難成大器。寄宿學生跟家人聚少離多、常要獨力解決問題,是無可厚非的事實。寄宿制度並非完美,我亦確曾見過有學生因未能適應寄宿生活而倍感受壓,但情況並不常見,更多的是破繭而出的成長故事。況且要避免出現心理上的水土不服,親子可從入學年齡、選校、出發前的生活習慣,以至開學後如何保持聯繫等細節上多花工夫,下次再跟大家逐一拆解。

#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.
