Nowadays, students and teachers have huge burdens from the school or family. For example, students may have excessive academic pressure, expectations of their own and parents. And teachers may have an excessive amount of works and they are shouldering enormous responsibility, so they will feel stressed too. On that day, there will be some activities provided to students to relax. This program is for form one to four and form six students, because form five and seven students will have the public examination soon, so they should spend more time and pay effort on study.
This program will be supervised by Students Union and teachers. Those activities can be inside school or outside school. For instance, handicraft class, squash class and to be a volunteer and visit old peoples centre. And the number of persons designated is limited. Some of the activities must pay the money for booking places and materials fee. Also, the school should employ some tutor to lead the classes. Organizing this program, students and teacher can benefit from it. First, students can join what they like, so they will look forward to Friday and the activities provide the motive power that students to go to school.
Moreover, because they have much homework and tests, so the activities are a good way to help students to reduce stress. Through the activities, students can also make more friends, not only in the same form, but also in different form. Because in each activity, we will elect different form of students to join, so students can broaden their social network and learn how to get along with others. At the same time, there are some teachers do not have to supervise students and classes, so they can have a meeting or seminar during this time, and it will not affect the teaching progress.
And they can use this time to mark students homework or prepare . This is a meaningful and advantageous program, it is worth to implement it. The second suggestion is that the tuck shop should provide some healthy food to students. At present, the type of healthy food at tuck shop is too few and there are too many junk foods, such as potato chips, sweets and soft drink. At the lunch time, noodles is the exclusive food provided by the tuck shop. It is lack of nutrition but full of fat and full of additive.
Also, these days, the number of Hong Kong obsessed students is rising because of junk food and the shortage of exercise. If student always eat it, maybe they will suffer from some diseases like constipation. So the school should ask the tuck shop provide some healthy foods to students and teachers. For example, the tuck shop can sell some dried fruit, soy milk and follow the rule of three portions of carbohydrates, two portions of vegetables and one portion of meat when they prepare the lunch. If the tuck shop can implement this suggestion, students, teachers and the tuck shop shopkeeper can gain the advantage.
First, if student and teacher have the balance diet, they will be stronger than before, so they will not sick easily. Second, if students and teachers know the food from the tuck shop is nutritious and beneficial, the tuck shop can gain the loyalty from students and teachers, so they will stay in school and have lunch. In addition, it can combat the problem that students come back late to the school at two oclock or meet some unfamiliar people during lunchtime. The last suggestion is to furnish a drinking fountain with hot and cold water.
When Students have already drunk all the water that they bring to school, they have to buy a bottle of water in the tuck shop, but it is expensive than the store outside school, so the student will wait until lunchtime, especially in the summer. Also, in the winter, students want to have some hot water to keep them warm, but the drinking fountain only provides cold water. If the school furnish a drinking fountain with hot water, students not only do not need to buy the water, they also have hot water to keep them warm and take the medicine. Furthermore, if student buy a bottle of water everyday, they will waste lots of bottles.
So, if this environmentally friendly suggestion can implement, our campus will be clearer and more hygienic. To build up a drinking fountain, we can ask Parent Teacher Association to sponsor. And I suggest that there can be some prefect supervises the drinking fountain during recess and lunchtime. To conclude, the school should organise some activities in the last two lessons on every Friday. Also, the tuck shop should provide some healthy food to students and build up a drinking fountain with hot and cold water. I hope these suggestions would be taken and I am pleased to see our school will be better.
