悼念陳浩明老師

陳浩明老師(1936 – 2007) 是我初中班主任又是會考中文老師。自中五畢業之今十多年來,我的舊同學們,間中亦有探望陳老師。(當中有些還是當年的頑皮搞鬼的滋事份子!) 說來慚愧,我就是一次也沒有跟隨。然而,陳老師多年的身教言教,我是沒有忘記的;從小學到大學云云老師中,陳老師是我最為敬重的一位。

老實說,陳老師是舊派人:教書一字一句的解說,重背誦,少言笑;上他的課真係好鬼悶!最痛苦是,每個小息、中飯甚至放學後,陳老師都會安排學生到教員室外排隊,一個跟一個的在他面前,或背誦課文、或背誦老師撰寫的題問答案!風雨不改、年中無休。而且他對每個學生都一視同仁,就算是我們這些非精英班的學生亦一樣要求嚴謹。多得陳老師的不斷鞭策,以我這樣資質平庸之材,會考中文科竟可拿到B grade!

追悼會當晚,見到滿堂都是陳老師多年來的門生,80年代至90年代的學生都有,陳老師在天之靈,亦應該感到安慰。我想,現今那此所謂的補習天王,仲使名氣大、fans多,一身衣著名牌,但是巧言令飾的人是不能打動人心的;陳老師雖然有點木訥、舊派,但他那誠懇不倦的教育精神,卻贏得了尊嚴及學生畢生的敬重之心。願老師安息。

  • Dear SPC old boy,

    I am not sure if I have taught you before. I taught at SPC from 1989 to 1994.

    I am so glad to have read your blog. Mr Chan is more a mentor to me than a colleague on a par with me. I respect him very much.

    I am ashamed to say that I failed to follow his footsteps, which are obviously too large for me to step into.

    Mr Chan is never old-fashioned. His generosity, care, and patience are cardinal principles for us to follow, and these virtues stand the test of time.
