Photo Story

Students usually experience a very busy and sometimes stressful day in school. It is extremely important to grant them some free time while they are in school. This prevents further exhaustion of the kids and adds more fun and motivation to the usual school day.

Without having time to socialize with friends and simply having fun without worrying about things, students would be put under too much pressure. Too much work without breaks would cause the students’ spirit and energy to do work at all.

Leisure in school means to give students the opportunity to do something that they could not do in class and while they are busy. For instance, the time a student can freely spend with friends is more important for the social development of a child than the time he spends in class. By having kids always do work that was assigned by someone else they lose their potential to self-determination.

The best way to motivate a child is to make it happy. It cannot be the rule that kids are forced into school-work by threatening them with the consequences of their own laziness.

Also, school is a place for kids to make new friends. Since students are supposed to focus on what is happening in class, there must be at least some free time provided to take advantage of this aspect in school.
