【信報】 識問,問課外活動啲乜

上星期講過,家長若親身做探訪校園,或與學校代表面談,機會難逢,問問題當然要問到重點,我的建議是:識問,一定要問關於課外活動。 

 

課外活動不受管制,亦不直接影響學校排名和聲譽,反而正因如此,一間學校如果連課外活動也設想周到,就證明校方對學生的關懷愛護是真心真意了。

 

大家來溫習一下我上周提過可問的問題:有幾多種課外活動?運動、音樂、藝術、社區服務等如何分配?各種活動是行精英制,定還是只要有興趣便人人可參與?同學仔如果在某運動或活動有出色表現,校方有沒有特別支援?學校會否提與校外各種校際、地區甚至更高層次的比賽和交流的機會?換言之,家長查詢課外活動安排時,記得校方不應只以選擇多掛帥,還應涵蓋不同範疇,這才顯示出校方有心透過活動來擴闊同學仔的視野和體驗。此外,學校既然不可能甚麼活動都舉辦,家長掌握學校挑揀課外活動的準則,以及不同種類活動的比例分配,從中也可以窺見校方對學生的期許寄望。學校鼓勵學生參與活動的方向,亦一定程度反映學校的核心價值——到底校方重視學生試新事物,定要他們在熟悉的活動中精益求精?究竟獨樂樂重要,抑或眾樂樂行先?詢問課外活動學生參與的比例,就知道活動是否行精英制。優秀的學校不會只重點栽培一小撮學生,理應鼓吹亦要求大眾的參與。還有不妨找出大部分課外活動是在課餘進行,抑或納入上課核心時間。雖名為「課外活動」啫,不代表其教育價值低於在課堂內上課,重視課外活動的學校自會為之騰出黃金時間。

 

留意番,如果同學仔已是高班,「課外活動」更應包括對他們升學及就業的支援。所以家長除了可以查問:「上到高班,我的子女在課外活動上享有幾多自由?」、「校園有沒有特別供中六學生活動的六年級中心 (Sixth Form Centre)?」外,有關學校職業發展部門的規模,對學生升學如科目選擇及UCAS申請所作的支援,針對各種大學入學考試如BMAT 、SAT、TSA、LNAT有何協助提供等,這些問題都是屬於不可不問的。

#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.
