School can be the best time of your life – but are we making the most of the experience?

School is the most formative period in a young person’s life. It’s a time when we can learn the most (about the widest range of topics) and it’s often the foundation for which our characters are built. That’s why we, as students, should try to make the most of our experience, because it’ll never come round again.

Take advantage of learning

If we discipline ourselves and remain punctual in our studies, we’ll be able to gain more knowledge. Doing our work or homework at the right time, will help us focus and retain the knowledge more easily, and prepare us for the world after school.

Make memories

School offers us some of the happiest and funniest moments of our life. We create so many great memories and stories that’ll we’ll be recounting for years to come.

Practice important values

Institutions have a great influence on students. Not just in our academic life, but also on our characters. Our teachers will try to instil in us fundamental values of: discipline, honesty, punctuality, dutifulness, respect, manners and personal cleanliness. And I’m sure there are many more.

School can help shape everything from our fashion choices to our attitudes and basic principles of life.

Take it seriously

Some students may avoid doing home assignments and shy away from hard work. That is until it comes time to taking exams. And when exam times come round, it can be bit of a shock to the system for some. No more fooling around, it’s time to read and revise.

Don’t let this be you. Keep yourself disciplined, take learning seriously and when it comes time to taking exams you’ll be better prepared, and less anxious.

In conclusion

School can bring many struggles and challenges, but it can also create opportunities and memories. It can be a joyful and happy time, as long as we learn how to balance fun with studying.
