【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】晨形人是怎樣煉成的
最近有段網絡熱傳的新聞記錄片,講述所謂的「晨形人」,即是比一般人早起身start a new day的一種人。晨形人每天朝早五點未夠,太陽都未出的時候就起身。落街跑步、煮早餐、送仔仔返學、睇報紙,臨出門口返工還是八點未夠。一星期還有一次六點鐘的business meeting跟其他創業者或生意人交流。節目其中一位晨形人Belinda,是一位生意人。
 
節目播出街旋即引起激烈討論,話晨形人離地,話打工仔的生活時鐘要早睡早起是不可能的,更莫說早一個鐘返公司……早在我十幾年前讀書時就經歷過了。
 
如果大家還記得早前農夫玩轉英國寄宿校那個節目,相信都對陸永游早水的那幕好有印象。對呀,就算天氣幾凍,每星期都有一日要五點幾起身落泳池游水,我自己都經歷過,確實很辛苦。
 
早起身,對於現代都市人來說是好可怕的。前一晚已經OT到八點,返到屋企食埋飯十點,唔睇電視、唔上Facebook唔打機,即刻去瞓,晚餐還未落格。我不否認比平常早兩三小時起床,當天的時間的確比較好用。感覺全世界都在on your mark, get set的時候你已經go了,跑快人幾個身位。但我心目中的「晨形人」,反而是另一種。
 
相信人生在世其中一樣最大敵人就是早起身。尤其在冬天時候,床鋪暖笠笠,總想瞓多陣,五分鐘都好。一想到每星期總有一天要五點鐘凍冰冰怕起身,還要去泳池,前一晚總是非常忐忑。要有勇氣五點鐘起身,真是少一點毅力(grit)也不行。
 
而英國學校將「晨形」的practice做得好,因為一星期只有一天要早起,其他時間可以休息多一點。但其實這樣更辛苦,正因為一星期只有一天,你永遠都不會習慣早起身,永遠都會因為知道明天要做晨形人想喊。
 
而這邊廂在香港,晨形人似乎因為日日如是,而早就將早起的痛苦變成習慣。時間多了,但Grit卻沒怎麼培養到。等於一條橡筋長期拉緊,也會漸變得鬆。
 
所以晨形人的背後,還得看看你想得到的是甚麼。如果是爭取時間的話,早起身的確有用,卻同時反映一日24小時真的不夠香港人用……
 
不過如果你想要的是Grit,可以學習英國人的方式,一星期只早起一兩天。

#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.
