It’s still a long way before the summer vacation, Ethan is anxiously（焦急地）waiting for the school to announce（宣布）the dates for the summer retreat camp. This is a 3-day camp which usually takes place in Cheung Chau for all Catholic students, an optional（非強制性）activity. Ethan participated（參加）for the past two years and he finds it most rewarding（值得）. On one hand, he can make new friends with schoolmates of different forms（年級）, on the other, he enjoys the religious teaching by a very humorous（幽默）priest. Yet, Ethan’s mother is focusing（注意力集中於）more on what tutorial classes（補習班） and other recreation activities（娛樂活動）to register for Ethan. She is now thinking of sending Ethan to an expensive UK study tour（遊學團）. Ethan worries so much that time may clash（相撞）with the Catholic students retreat camp. He is most agitated （不安）. He is afraid that telling about his different priorities（優次）may upset her.
What would you do if you were Ethan?
- Since I haven’t any information about the dates for retreat, I’d wait until announcement comes out and see if it would clash with anything. I’d stay silent and it would not be my fault if my mother spent much effort in collecting information for other activities that I could not attend, I never asked her to.
- I’d disclose（透露）to her about my wish of attending the retreat and gauge（評估）her expectation. In case the dates really clashed, then we would further discuss options, and I’d try my best to convince her at that stage（這階段）. I’d speak out as soon as possible.
