New Year must-have goals for every student


Children learn how to play a piano. Make it your goal to learn a new skill this year. (Dennis Agaba)

The New Year is a great time to reflect on the changes you want to or need to make. As a student look at ways to improve yourself, set goals and work hard towards achieving them.

l Believe in yourself that you can achieve anything you focus on. Have a positive attitude towards learning and be passionate.

l Commit yourself to getting good grades. Good grades are a bridge to school success and future life.

l Don’t do it all. It’s better to concentrate on a few things and excel in them than if you join every sport, activity and club that you can cram into your schedule. Manage your time well.

l Do more research on what your studying and start working towards the person you want to become in future.

l Join innovative clubs and spread your wings. You’ll never know what you like – or how good you are at something–until you try.

l Be excited about your school and what you’re studying. Meet new students, learn new things, and discover your inner talents.

l Listen to your teachers’ advice and stay more focused in class. Teachers are here to get you what you want out of life.

l Banish the self-doubt. Doubting your own abilities only holds you back from achieving what you want to achieve.
