感懷

滚滚长江東逝水  浪花淘盡英雄  是非成败轉頭空  青山依舊在  幾度夕陽红。 白髮渔樵江渚上  惯看秋月春風  一壺濁酒喜相逢  古今多少事  都付笑談中。 三國演義開卷引楊慎臨江仙詞﹐ 讀之每引發無限感慨。在此我退休前夕﹐ 再讀到 “是非成败轉頭空” 等詞句時﹐ 感觸尤深。憶孔明六出祁山﹐ 七擒孟獲﹐ 以隻手補天﹐ 倒頭來還不是空劬勞而已。諸葛武侯猶如此﹐ 我輩凡夫何以堪﹖ 演義結尾有七言古風一首﹐ 末段有云﹕ “紛紛世事無窮盡﹐天數茫茫不可逃”。此詞此詩﹐ 實把古今天下事﹐ 看得透透徹徹。 Max Wong 61

一个伊中旧生对“国民教育科”的看法

最近,香港市民对政府的“国民教育”措施议论纷纷,很多说这是“洗脑教育”,更有说这是“共产党员教育”,提出反对。伊中旧生会也联名提出反对,並要求校方承諾不會在伊中推行國民教育科。在我个人立场看来,香港中小学教育(包括很多很有名的学校的教育方针)早就充满了各种各样的教条灌输。所以,这些反对的声音是过烈的反应,是双重的标准。 我本人中学的教育,有三年是在天主教学校中渡过的, F1和F2是在九龙华仁书院,F7是在九龙喇沙书院,其余的时间是在伊中。  在华仁F1和F2的时候,每周要修数节“圣经知识”(Biblical Knowledge) ,基本上就是灌输天主教的教义。在喇沙F7,每天也要修一节“伦理”(Ethics) ,基本上也是灌输天主教的教条。不管学生是天主教徒与否,这些科目,还是非得考试通过才有升级的机会。我相信这是一百数十年来香港每一所天主教中学习以为常的教育方针。  如果天主教中学可以在课程上灌输这样的“教条教育”,那么别的学校放进“國民教育科” ,又有何不可呢?

中国文化复兴和启蒙

中国崛起成为经济强国,中国的社会文化是应该每个人都关注的。下面是资中筠老师讲的“中国文化复兴和启蒙”。我个人不会完全同意她的见解,尤其是对于推崇西方制度方面。但是,在我們民族需要些甚麼? 缺少了甚麼? 我觉得她有許多可取的意见。她指出外族统治中国时,常捧出孔夫子儒学来束缚民间思想,这个很值得回味。 http://v.ifeg.com/history/wenhuashidian/201111/87dfcd48-4f4e-40e4-bd96-5c636e3f144f.shtml
