【信報:親子關係】我要去奧脫福

雖說讀好書是孩子的責任,但往往緊張的卻是家長。在以往不少升學個案中,絕大部分學生都不知道自己要報甚麼學校、考多少份試卷、何時出發等等,事無大小由父母代勞。


除了一位男生 — Roney。


奧脫福魅力

他非常清楚自己要考甚麼學校,甚至幾次都是獨個兒來和我傾談,「我要去英國讀書,一定要去

 

Manchester。」Manchester範圍裏比較少選擇,最接近的Stonyhurst如何?離Manchester不遠,運動成績不錯,挺適合好動的Roney。「真的沒有於Manchester的學校嗎?Samuel,幫幫手吧。」Roney失望的說。

 

我說再嘗試幫他找一找,同時我問他為何如此堅持要在Manchester?「因為我要去奧脫福朝聖!我是曼聯fans,改名做Roney,也是因為朗尼。不過改名時我還小,串錯字,將錯就錯。喜歡英國,也因為曼聯,我要成為足球員,我要在奧脫福上大展拳腳。」噢,原來如此!對於十四五歲血氣方剛的同學來說,「奧脫福」這個夢,的確有它的魅力。

 

可是請留意一點,Roney一直在會面中說「我要」,而不是「我想」,某程度上,是有所不同的。我欣賞他有一種「我要」追逐夢想的心,也有很明確的升學目標。雖然這種理由說出口,一般父母都會反對,但卻總有例外,「不要緊,我和爸媽早就討論過,得到他們同意了。爸爸也是曼聯支持者,這下子易話為了。」哈,這小子,原來早有準備。

 

在「孩子年紀小,父母幫你選,一定選到最好的」的傳統教育觀念上,難得Roney父母多了一種身教,讓孩子學會承擔責任,並有機會為自己的前路做抉擇。或者你覺得很殘忍,任由孩子自己做決定好嗎?父母的角色不是完全放任,而是以輔導者的身份在旁給予意見,讓孩子參與其中,不容易後悔。

 

雖然Roney選的路不一定完美無瑕,也未必最適合他,更不知能否成為下一個朗尼或伊巴謙莫域,但身穿摩帥球衣的Roney,刻下,眼中有火。

#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.
