【信報:升學專家有話兒】Do姐啟示

本應於今周談一談怎樣揀「多洋同學」或「多自己人」(港生或亞洲生)的學校,臨時改一改話題,下周六再續談。

 

《嘩鬼上學去之農夫篇》播完了,節目中除了農夫外,還有Do姐鄭裕玲的驚喜現身。有關我協助製作這節目時,其中最深印象的就是Do姐。利申:我跟Do姐不熟,這次跟她結緣於英國是意外之喜。久仰Do姐專業大名,果然名不虛傳,真人還非常雍容高貴,談吐大方,而且英語典雅標準,身處於古雅英式校園,毫無違和感覺。

 

志願當主播

身為巨星,Do姐也很友善,看得出她是個好學的人,不時會主動向我詢問留學英國的問題。我後來看資料才知道,Do姐原本的志願是當新聞主播,她當年在德望學校念書,會考成績相當不俗,可惜因為家庭經濟狀況,要放棄赴美修讀新聞系,夢想泡湯了。

 

小弟沒經歷過Do姐於電影及電視劇最叱吒風雲的日子,但她很多揚威國際的威水史,卻令我印象深刻,例如她曾是香港電視界首位接受BBC、CNN及CNBC國際電視台訪問的藝員。在新加坡拍過全英文處境喜劇《嘟姐駕到》大受歡迎。我有些英國學術界的朋友也認識Do姐,緣於她在有「東方諾貝爾獎」之稱「邵逸夫獎」頒獎典禮上,全英語上陣當司儀的超卓表現。當然,我個人至愛,是她為《一筆Out銷》作主持,這節目原版為BBC的Weakest Link,當年風靡全英國,主持人Anne Robinson更是家喻戶曉。據說當年BBC看中了Do姐有學識的知性形象,點名要她,事實證明BBC獨具慧眼。

 

看著Do姐今日的成就,的確會疑惑:假如當日Do姐能圓升學夢,成為了女主播,今日香港演藝圈是否會失色不少?但有一點我非常肯定,就是Do姐無論去到哪個圈子都會大放異彩,因為她的才能就像她的演技一樣百變,演《狂潮》富家女像富家女,演《表姐,你好嘢!》像表姐。她好學,她努力,她認真,她不會讓挫折打擊精益求精的決心。際遇可能一時迫她走了不是她心目中最理想的路,但成績斐然的命運應該走什麼路最終也會相同。

 

Do姐的故事,我覺得在我工作上,尤其值得用來為一些升學路途不平坦的同學打氣。升學考試,人生一個小關口而已,不足以論成敗。真正有料而勤力的人,是困境也困不住的。

#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.
