A few months back, students from primary and secondary schools across the country broke off for their grand holidays—the Christmas holidays. Often, most of the students retire to their homes with a lot of enthusiasm to have fun, in the best way they can.
Just like their parents, or anyone else for that matter, there’s no need for the students to have a bad time, but then, we all agree that there is a big line between students enjoying their holidays and misusing their holiday time in the pretext of enjoying them.
Below are a few interesting and constructive things students can do during their holidays.
In case, you find it hard to make money during your holidays, spend some time at home helping with housework instead. Normally it is assumed that girls are the ones supposed to do most of the housework during holidays, but it’s important to note that boys also have the same ability to participate.
Girls will be happy to cook for boys who are also making an effort like slashing, washing clothes and dishes and trimming the fence. It’s kind of annoying to watch a boy who spends three quarters of his time watching Transformers repeatedly, simply waiting to eat food. Besides, working is for your own benefit especially for future purposes when you have your own place.
Holidays are in place for a reason. Students spend more than three months at school, away from their family members and so during such long holidays, it’s important to have some time for family than spending every possible second away from home.
Like the saying goes, ‘work without play makes Jack a dull boy’. Take time off and go sporting with your colleagues. You could go jogging in the evening, play football and many other games. For those of you who feel more mature, I suggest indoor games like chess and scrabble.
Remember that holidays can also be used to catch up with schoolwork. You do not want to go back to school in January and find that you cannot even hold a pen properly!
For the very young ones, parents should buy them reading books and make the children read to them in the evening. This helps understand the progress of your child in school.
Finally, it’s advisable for students to watch movies (not all day though) other than going to loiter around the neighbourhood. Movies and music have a lot to teach young people because they normally tackle social problems.
