回顧兩年副學士生涯,感謝學院老師對我的關懷,感謝學院讓我有繼續升學的機會,特別感謝歷史科老師悉心教導,增強了我對歷史研究的認識與興趣。兩年來所學到的知識和技巧,有助我在攻讀大學課程時發揮所長。

回顧副學士生涯,可謂驚濤駭浪,一波三折。一開始入學滿懷大志希望從歷史中找到真理,意志卻隨著年月、安逸的環境而消磨變質。本人第一學期成績並不理想,幸好得到老師、同學的鼓勵,終於迷途知返,順利升學。其實求學貴乎態度,若能誠其心,持之而行,定必有所得著。同學在公開考試失利,信心或許受到動搖,然而「悟已往之不諫,知來者之可追」,不但可以重新享受學習的過程,而且能夠找到燃燒生命的動力。

回想當初因公開考試成績不理想而報讀嶺南大學社區學院歷史副學士課程。在這兩年間所學到的事遠遠比想像的還要多,其課程結構與本地大學課程沒有太大分別,因此有利銜接到本地大學。老師以多角度講解歷史,令我成功升讀大學,繼續向夢想進發。
