My School Life
School life is one of the most important periods in the life of a man. It is this period during which, one learns the basic principles of behaviour, speech, and etiquette. School life, in fact, is a period of learning and training in all the aspects of the personality of a man. One gets training for maintaining physical fitness, increasing one’s mental powers, learning the proper mode of behaviour, and understanding the basic concepts of life. School life is a period for the formation of character, mind, and body on sound lines.
My school life is really an ideal one. It is ideal in the sense that this is a period of the training of our minds. The impressions, that one gets during school life, remain throughout life even if they are good, bad, or indifferent. My school life prepares me to develop good – habits as well as right and rational thinking. It makes me duty-bound and obedient. Respect for teachers and elders is my abiding faith. I obey all my school teachers and parents and this is also one of the good habits that were developed by me during the school life.
During my school days, I developed an interest in playing games, staging dramas, debating, and other extra-curricular activities.
I am a good debater and speaker, athlete, and sportsman and at the same time, I hold positions in the class in academic terms also. My teachers encourage me very much and help me in all possible ways. I am in the good books of all the teachers as well as of the Headmaster because I have won many medals, cups, trophies, shields, and certificates for my extraordinary display of abilities in examinations, athletics, debates, and theatre.
Wordsworth has said, “As a twig is bent, so the tree will grow.” This is very much true in the case of tender and delicate students. The minds of students are just like photographic plates; whatever impressions are left on them, would be retained by them. Good ideas,-like love for the motherland, devotion to duty, obedience towards elders, service to the nation, helping the poor and the needy, nursing the sick, feeding the hungry etc. — are inculcated in the students during their school days.
Broadly speaking, school life is not only a period for learning, reading of books or playing, but also it is a period of time during which, all the good habits are acquired, bad habits are shunned, good conduct, fair play, and sound thinking are developed. Further, the healthy ideas of patriotism and nationalism are imbibed by the students during this period.
My school life shall prepare for me, a sound and firm foundation upon which, the building of my life is going to be erected. My mistakes and failures would guide me in my future life. I do not feel discouraged and disheartened because, for me, failures are the stepping stones toward success. My school life is a good and great experience and experience is the best teacher. I shall always adore my school days.
