【Mameshare】讓孩子為生活做決定

 

有個年紀很小的學生,他是第一次去英國讀書,選了一間叫King's Hall的學校。臨飛之前通常都是由媽媽上來打點一切,告訴我她的兒子去英國後想怎樣怎樣安排。事隔半年,我飛去英國探望他,閒談之後發現他很感恩且有很大改變。赴英之前,他是一個典型的9歲港孩,從小到大沒有為自己做過決定,一切都是由爸爸媽媽負責安排,由工人姐姐打點生活上的細節。他的父母甚至說,在家裏他亂扔弄髒的衣服,然後由工人姐姐負責幫他收拾,他的人生裏沒做過任何重大決定。

 

沒想到這名學生來到英國後,不但房間整潔,而且學會為自己規劃時間表,閒談間他有幾句說話令我很感觸,「Samuel哥哥,如果現在6歲的弟弟過來英國生活,我也可以照顧他!」這時候他不單止能把自己的生活照顧得妥妥當當,而且為自己擁有將來照顧弟弟的能力感到興奮。

 

很多人都覺得寄宿學校是一個很安全、很有系統的地方,學校會把學生的大小事務都安排妥當,其實我覺得並非如此。寄宿學校反而是提供一個很大的校園和環境,幫助小朋友從小開始為自己學做決定、為自己做好準備。學校的安排固然妥當,譬如每隔兩個小時就會點名(Roll Call)確認學生在哪裏,有沒有離開學校。但其實學生無論年紀多小,去到學校都會覺得自己是一個大人,慢慢學會幫自己做決定。從小學開始先做小決定,例如七日穿七對襪,如果不清洗這些襪,來到第八日就沒有襪子以可穿了;又或者如果襪子上沒有釘上自己的名字,洗衫回來只剩一隻,就找不回另一隻了。除了自理個人清潔事務,學校每隔兩個星期一定會逼你清洗自己的被袋、枕頭袋等等。其實不是學校不擺放資源去請傭人或褓母幫忙,只不過他們想要求學生從小獨立,為自己的生活作決定,直至慢慢長大。(待續)

#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.
