Today we were fortunate enough to have visited two brilliant schools in Glasgow which might not be the so-called traditionally elite schools.
The ambassadors were very helpful and cheerful. But beside them, I grabbed the opportunity chatting with those having lessons as well. This boy on the left picture, Oliver, was happy with his "stylish" bottle painted by his sister. I wondered what bad thing he did to her to make her stain his bottle with such "toxic" ink! But Oliver didn't seem to mind at all!
Q2: The interpreter spoke with a Scottish accent which may be a bit tricky for Hong Kong students. Try to listen to him several times to get the idea. Do you understand what sort of difficulties Keren needs to get through and what achievement she had got?
Getting back to the first question: Do we only teach for excellence? Well, the "love" I could sense in these two schools was already the "excellence" which every school should be working for.
Day 7 has something great to happen. Stay tuned.
