【信報:寄宿學校攻略】寄宿創傷?(下)

上次提及,有心理學家指部分寄宿學生因年幼時缺乏適當的情感關注,長大後或出現不擅長表達情緒等情況,惟研究亦表明並非人人也會經歷同一問題。

 

四大注意點

我認為,入讀寄宿學校對孩子的心理影響是好是壞,取決於所規劃的升學之路是否符合學生性格和成長需要。

 

入學年紀-雖然我自9歲便入讀英國寄宿,但這年紀未必適合所有學生。因此,也有很多學生選擇13歲時才升讀當地Year 9(相等於本港中三課程),除了因為此年給學額較充裕,孩子亦已有一定的獨立和自理能力去解決生活難題。事實上,有份提出寄宿弊病的心理學家亦曾表示,13歲孩子的心智已達一定程度,新生活的衝擊相對較少。當然,年幼學生出發前若對新生活有足夠認知,如跟父母一起搜集資訊及參加升學講座,亦能減少很多不必要的迷茫。

 

選校-從方便學生適應的角度而言,我主張入讀全體學生每周留宿7天的全寄宿學校(Full Boarding),否則當地學生如一到周末便會回家度假,留校港生難免會感到寂寞。另外,很多家長會傾向選擇較少華人學生的學校,然而小朋友如天生害羞,「同聲同氣」的同學將有助他加快融入,而且亞洲學生出名勤力,隨時能帶動孩子努力學習。

 

事前準備-寄宿學校的作息時間甚又規律,上網時間多受到限制,家長可以在小朋友開學前御先調節其生活習慣,包括早睡早起和減少玩電腦。另外,如金錢時間許可,很多學校均歡迎感興趣的親子到校參觀,亦可以讓小朋友上暑期班等短期課程,小試牛刀。

 

保持聯絡-有地域距離,不等於少了溝通。基本上,學生每天均有自由時間透過電話或視像等形式跟家人聯絡。當然,聯絡物度因人而異,子女打電話的次數若有所減少,或因他已有新的社會圈子,正享受著愉快的宿舍生活,最重要的是要讓他們感受到父母的關愛,會隨時傾聽他的煩惱。

#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.
