The Best Thing I Learnt in School
A home away from home, a school is a place which teaches you so much, from academies to curricular activities, from code of conduct to values and morals. While we have all grumbled at the work we do at school or the bulk of the homework that is piled on us, not one of us can claim that we have not learnt anything in school.
It is not only the teachers that teach us at school. We also learn from our friends. Our interaction with them teaches us team spirit, it teaches us to share, it teaches us what bonding is all about and in short, it teaches to adapt. I have learnt a lot from school too. Our science teacher one day casually mentioned that she will give a gift to the top three students who fare well in science. This was before our final exams. Well, the results were out and we went into our new classes and got new teachers. A week later she walks in with three gifts and she handed it over to the three deserving students. While I was thrilled with the gift. what I learnt from this episode is that you must keep your word. She did not have to- no one would question her, but she did, and I respect her all the more for it.
There are many such instances from my school life that have taught me a lot but this is, perhaps, the best thing I learnt in school.
