阿仔讀緊出名英中F.1(但成績中等),而家有間ESF中學收左,想問下大家意見,會唔會比阿仔轉過去讀IS?

You applied to ESF for some reason(s), right? May be you could share you reason(s) and others could give you better advice.

其實我本人一直都認為香港教育制度不好,名校老師的教學態度也不盡是優秀,所以小學時已希望他轉讀國際學校,但爸爸郤堅持阿仔入讀名校(幸運地阿仔又考到),所以我最後還是讓阿仔繼續讀傳統名校,但升上中學後,眼見阿仔又是不斷讀書讀書,覺得咁努力,但在這些名校中(其他人太強了)郤仍是只屬中等的成績,對考DSE更加反感,所以恐怕阿仔都係考不到好成績,所以想住F3 比阿仔過英國讀書,但我也不捨得阿仔,巧合而家英基有位,又收了阿仔,所以令到我而家心大心細,但爸爸就始終希望阿仔繼續留在香港中學讀書,可況而家間中學是好多人夢眛以求入去的中學,所以我都好矛盾,唔知如何決定才是最好!

你吾捨得仔仔咁早去外國(成長期係最好有父母在身邊),咁好又有吾錯的IS收,係好大的喜訊,仲心大心細!?

先同你先生傾吓,再問亞仔想法。學生生活吾應該只係讀書,搏老命死讀考DSE,消磨了意志,成績亦吾係一定好。如果係我,no brainer。

Sounds like you like him going to ESF but you need reasons to convince your husband... In that case, within this Int'l School forum you should be able to find lots of reasons on those IS vs. LS threads. Just browse around and you will find many.

As to his studying ability, going to IS does not necessarily mean he will have good grades. The competition is fierce, especially in the upper secondary grades. Is he IB material? Is he good at research, synthesis and coming up with his own original solutions? Jumping ship half way may not guarantee a good future, and then you'll have an angry husband to deal with...

If he is an active learner he may be suitable, if he is passive and got used to being spoon fed then IS is really not for him....

中學 IS 也開始有壓力,功課温書,我想不能期望可以放鬆。

回覆:shadeslayer 的帖子

From my personal experience, my daughter transferred from a band 1 local English primary school to IS after she finished primary 6. My daughter's English is up to par with the IS standard and she has been conversing in English with her classmates since p5.  She likes to do her own research, and frequently likes to express her own opinion but it was not appreciated by her local school teachers.  But in the IS, she is required to express her own opinions and she loves all the teachers and enjoys studying hard in this school.  Her math is not good but the teachers are very helpful. Her Chinese level is in the top class. The workload is heavy but she enjoys doing her homework, writing analytical essays, creating videos, presenting her work in front of the class , and doing debating sessions in class.

Before she transferred, she was very quiet and lonely in the school and the teachers did not like her.  Now, she has become a very confident and outspoken girl and I am very grateful for the school. I think that the main difference is the culture of the school and the upbringing of the teachers. They enjoy discussing with the kids and they love to help them.

Each child is different, maybe he should join a summer class to see whether he likes the style of teaching or not.

大家知唔知道ESF Shatin College是否一間好學校?可比d意見嗎?
我想而家其中部份影響我的原因是「我究竟是否應該放棄阿仔而家間中學的學位,而去入讀這間IS?」其實我也明白香港讀書仍是辛苦,只是IS的教學法令我覺得不是在壓迫學生,而是可讓學生可以真正的享受學習!

王家爸爸  SC的IB成績相當好,40分或以上有17.1%(WIS是18.3%),高於世界平均的6%很多,但與SPCC(77.8%),DBS(53.5%)及漢基(53.5%)比較,還是有距離的。  發表於 14-5-15 14:15

***两种学校也有优点缺点
***明显地你已经又立场了, 只不过是想在这里得到群众的支持和付和, 来删除你现时患得患失的矛盾心情.
***你问我, 我当然话要读IS 才ichiban, 否则我个女唔会读IS 啦!!!!
***你现时的优势是财政不是重点, 已经少了很多烦恼, 而且阿仔英文OK, 不然有得考都未必考到, 恭喜!

点解?????唔直接问阿仔??? 之前交低全部心得和资料, 让他消化和理解转校的理由.  岩唔岩读?读得好唔好? 全靠是孩子的思维和勇气, 父母只能从旁开导和默默支持!  如果真的认为IS 会很好, 你要做好心理治愈师的工作, 发放正能量来support孩子的正向思维.  我见是大部分LS来的孩子settle down 得非常好!!!!! 中文又叻, 我地IS家长不知多羡慕啊!!!!!!

Good luck!

個人覺得ESF架構下;間間學校其實差不多;當然間間學校有好學生;也有壞學生。恕我直言;"名中學學生/家長"只是一個外表風光的虛銜。
如魚飲水;冷暖自知;除了一些3姑6婆偶爾說句"你個仔好叻;係邊度邊度讀;好犀利"之外;
你或多或少覺得孩子讀得辛苦之餘又沒有突破;你也有沮喪之感;並不太享受此虛銜帶來的滿足感。
比起千千萬萬口說"想改變"但冇行動的家長;你已有很大的勇氣;作出行動;是值得鼓勵的。
如繼續在現在的學校消磨鬥志;倒不如試一試改變;反正你已計劃出國;實在冇咩可以再輸!
大前提是孩子是否有勇氣接受改變?

其實阿仔不太想轉校,因為而家間中學內有好多他認識已久的朋友。所以也擔心我的決定會否令他很不開心?

如果轉了校便不是朋友;也不是好朋友罷;
以此LOGIC;香港咁多朋友;留學都可以慳番啦!
當然;如果佢冇勇氣改變;而父母又不想個仔因改變而唔開心;
唯有不變應萬變;專心考DSE吧!

阿仔不太想轉校!!!!
*****      *****
如果没有特定急切需要, 九乘人都唔想转工, 又或转老公!

需要改变, 必然有特别的重大动机和原因的.  阿仔不太想轉校的原因可能是:

a) 原本的学校是好到了不得, 我读得很开心, 有信心成绩好, 是阿妈多事要我转校,
b) 同学很好, 读书却愈读愈担心
c) 转换新环境, 我非常害怕

如果是A), 你便多一事不如少一事好了!
如果是B), 向孩子解释世界常变, 最好的同学会离别, 也许今天的老友, 明天是bully 你的同学仔, 依赖别人最不可靠
如果是c), 更要多下功夫来培养孩子的自信!

如果孩子和丈夫非常反对,那便算了! 始终是家和万事兴!!!

Remarks: Please check if you have friends' children in Shatin College.  If have, maybe ask them to tell more about the school to your son directly so as to boost up his confidence in transformation .

在傳統名校讀就是愈讀愈無信心,因為同學太top了,而老師又往往把注意力集中在最好同最頑皮的學生身上,中游份子總是埋在其中,所以我先至心嗡,眼見阿仔好努力,但成績郤總是浮下浮下,所以很想讓他做回真我。爸爸同阿仔不是極力反對,只是他們的意願是不轉,但如果我堅持,他們也會就範,但日後的責任就好像是我一人來擼帶了!

其實我覺得你都要睇個仔嘅意願,以及諗下佢性格適唔適合。咁講真,都讀左咁多年主流,而且個仔係搞得掂、入到band 1中學的,可能加把勁就可以進步了。你都諗住過兩年就送佢出去了,如果個仔唔想轉的話,我覺得都唔好勉強,就專心諗兩年後過外國的事宜吧。

One important consideration you have not mentioned, what are your plans for his university education? If it is going to be in HK, then DSE / JUPAS is still the most straight forward path.

Two points I wish to make:

1. It is too early to say your boy is a mediocre student when he is just in F.1.   We would not see the full potential of children, esp. boys until they are in F.4 / F.5.  It is my own experience and the results of my observations.  I did see in traditonal famous schools 'medicro' students would overtake 'top' students as they promote to senior forms.  When in senior forms, the requirements for intellectual cabilities will fully materialize and only by then could you say who are the top and who are the mediocre.   And staying in the current school can let him have a good chance to learn some decent Chinese before departing for England.

2. On the other hand, however, if it has been decided your son will head to England, I think it is a no-brainer to send him to a decent IS now, cos' it will further enhance his English capability and shall make him easier to adapt to English education later on.  And, finally, getting into an IS would let him be exposed to people of greater diversity in cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
