【信報】 抬頭吧 2018!

新年伊始,又是設下resolution的時候。各位家長和同學仔在新一年立志革新改變的事情,會不會是減少做低頭族?

 

不用等新年,英國已經越來越多學校在正視學生滑手機成癮的問題,並採取措施以限制學生在校內上網。以著名女子寄宿學校St Catherine’s為例,其校長Alice Phillips認為要令校內四至十八歲學生脫離低頭族,學校非強硬管制她們在學校使用智能電話不可。該校曾經完全拆除Wifi裝置,可是遇到海外生的強烈抗議。校方於是退而求其次,只有在晚間特定時段會容許學生們使用手機,同時亦要求家長要為同學購買有上限的流動數據,皆因校長認為,給予小朋友無限上網的可能,最終只會後患無窮。對於各種社交平台,學校的反對態度更加堅決,校長的看法不無道理:「要社交,我們寧願同學仔面對面傾偈交流。

 

利申:我自己也是打機一族,是《英雄聯盟》玩家,我亦會在各社交平台上po文打咭,因此我亦深知在數碼世界過關斬將有幾過癮,有人follow或得到like有幾大滿足感。之但係,我亦深深知道,與朋友相聚????談或揮汗打一場波的樂趣,是任何網絡或虛擬世界都無法給予我的。生活,最重要是能取得平衡。

 

因此,我覺得要限制學生上網打機交友,各種打擊限制的手段都未免太過負面,最正面和有效的方法,反而是令學生發現,抬起頭來其實海濶天空,這個世界還有很多活動比盯著一隻五吋螢幕更新奇有趣,更能為大腦及感官帶來刺激。這方面,我個人真要感激英國寄宿學校的教育,讀書時學校大力鼓勵我們參加各種有益身心的體育活動,當曾經親身體驗過運動場上的那種high,就自不然會翻尋味,那興趣不會輕易被磨滅。至於寄宿生活,也讓我們學會與同輩互動交流的樂趣,明白到人與人之間的相處,才是最有趣味的遊戲,學習待人接物,才是最引人入勝的高超技巧。

 

2018年開始了,我在此祝大家新年進步,也希望香港的家長和同學仔新一年不妨以脫離低頭族為resolution,大家跑下步打場波傾下偈,實實在在地享受親子互動之樂。

#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.
