Your school is one of the most important places in your life. It’s the place you learn new things, discover your talents, make new friends and establish good qualities in yourselves. If your school is no pleasant place to be in, it is your responsibility to take care of it. You may be the management, a staff member, a past pupil or simply a student. If you can gather up a group of people who are committed to develop the school, this task may not be that hard. So here are some of the ways you could improve your school.
Beautifying your school is the easiest way for this. You simply have to pick weed, plant flowers, give walls a fresh coat of paint, clean out the garbage from your artificial turf in Hong Kong or parking lot and many more. Starting a garden is also a great idea. Many kids like gardening, to see their plants grow, bloom and bear fruit. It is a great stress reliever while you can also use the garden for science lessons. Also, have a wall for students to paint freely. You’d be amazed by the talent they have. Carry out awareness campaign so that everyone in school will support to keep it clean and beautiful.
Sports, clubs and societies are usually the lively activities of any school. They bring students together and give an opportunity for non-academic students to showcase their capabilities and talents. Refurbish your gymnasium with top quality rubber gym flooring, hold various competitions such as debates, singing, dance, drama and keep then engaged at all times. You can talk to the teachers, parents and even students and take their ideas on how could school be more fun.
Make school inclusive
You need the involvement of everyone in school to keep it going. Organize projects such as fundraisers, school cleaning programmes, go green projects etc. Welcome everyone’s ideas equally so that they feel worthy and happy. Also, your school needs to be nice to newcomers. Bullying newcomers is a thriving problem in schools and hence it needs to be maintained. Moreover, gossiping and bad mouthing people can cause great negative effects on students. Advise students on how to act if such rumours are circulating.
External parties such as administrators and parents are the best support groups for a school. Invite them to help you out financially or even physically, by being there to support you. Social media too is great way to gather support. As soon as there is any development project, highly advertise it so that it reaches as many as possible.
