Schools were built to teach and advance knowledge. Therefore, the first and foremost priority of a student is to try his utmost to excel in academic subjects. We should revise the lessons learnt in school regularly. The best way to achieve this is to have a timetable for revisions which we should adhere to religiously. Notes and other supplementary materials should be stored away neatly for easy access.
Next, we should opt for a co-curricular or extracurricular activity that we are interested in and try to become as proficient as possible in that activity. Sports and games help to keep our bodies fit and healthy, enriches the mind and teach us team spirit. Taking part in plays help us develop and appreciate the arts while debates and oratorical competitions teach us the valuable art of public speaking.
Last but not least, are good manners. A student who has good manners, who is considerate and helpful is always well liked by anyone. Rules and regulations help instill discipline and good manners in us. We should always be obedient to our parents and teachersand also be respectful of elders. A student who excels in his academic subjects and co-curricular activities but is not well-behaved and rude can never be truly well liked by anyone.
Going astray into the wrong path is very easy in rhe modern world. But I believe that if we are sincere, have faith in ourselves and work hard enough, we can all become as close to an ideal student as possible so that we may, one day, bacome useful and productive citizens of our country, and the pride of our nation.
