Play less and study more! Due to global increase in competition, kids today are forced to achieve very high grades or secure very high percentages. Students are so worried about grades and position that neither they have anytime for themselves nor for any extracurricular activities. They suffer from several disorders such as depression and emotional disorders. Academic subjects and extra-curricular activities complement each other and develop a well-rounded, socially skilled, and healthier student. There are so many possible extra-curricular activities that each student can choose one those appeals to him or her personality. Extra-curricular activities help to develop the whole student
Extracurriculars are there for students to enjoy activities other than their academics, but it is also a way to shows that they can focus on education and outside life at the same time. Some students do not take school seriously enough. Coming to school might just be a way for athletes to participate in the sport they want to. Not every students has exceeding academic skills, however, anyone can succeed if they just try. Being able to multitask will behoove the students in the future. Undergraduates tend to separate their school and outside life. Older adults do this as well; but instead of school, it is work they have to worry about. During exam week, students will want to study and it will take away their eating and sleeping time. Eating and studying is a vigorous way to
Unit 10 was a closure for the previous four units in the process of inventing Canada. This unit based on the earliest resources on Canadian history and on the first nations whom lived in this country. This resources were about pre-Cartier and his explorations. Some nations, for example the people who lived in St. Lawrence valley – whom did not have a specific name to be called at- and historians still lacking enough evidence on their existence or what happened with them. These people who are identified as St. Lawrence Iroquoians were lived in the contact area which means the conquerors reached them first. The Iroquoians were exposed to all the dangers Europeans carried into the native lands, different types of diseases they were not immune
Now a days technology is improving and students are staying at home, not being active. Extra-curricular activities are beneficial to someone’s life and discovers new skills for the individual. “One of the great benefits of extracurricular activities is creating new opportunities to learn and think about themselves to learn what they like and don’t like,” (Starett, 2011). This is why extra-curricular activities are important to help determine the individual discover skills that are suited for them, but time management is key to be able to participate in extra-curricular activities. “Decide which method works best for you: an agenda book for an electronic calendar and use it consistently,” (www.yrdsb.ca, 2015).
When students participate in extracurricular activities they learn lessons and concepts of leadership, teamwork, organization, analytical thinking, problem solving, and time management. In high school if a student wants to do a sport or other activity they will pick the activity that they like and enjoy. This is the kind of decision making skill that could help determine the type of career path for a student. By participating in extracurricular activities youth can find something they enjoy learn to use this in a career. “Participating in certain extracurricular activities having to do with the field that the student is interested in could help them find a job. If someone is looking at a resume for a potential employee, and they see they have experience or interest in what they are looking for, they will be more likely to hire that person” (Massoni). Having been apart of a particular extracurricular activity can be a positive influence in a job resume. This will cause students to find a new ambition in a career. Even on college applications these activities will affect if a student will be accepted, and in some circumstances many activities can earn a student thousands of dollars in scholarships (Massoni). Extracurricular activities can benefit students in teaching them long term commitments. When youth participate in
The day we left in 1-09-2056 it was not that good of a day. We were delayed 12 hours because of one of the batteries losing power when the ship was not on. My girlfriend did not want me to go after that but we needed the money and we would get to come back in 4 years and then we would leave again. We would be gone for a total of 12 years. I would go with two more people Bob, Joe, and me. This would be the first flight all through our galaxy.
Lastly, extracurricular activities improve the social and mental health of students. Through these after-school endeavors, students are able to make friends with people who share interests and find the same hobbies interesting, and often, these friendships are the most long-lasting. These friendships are not only beneficial to a students’ social well-being, but also to their mental health. In addition, kids not in safe environments at home are provided by a safe environment at school for after-school activities. For example, if
I had started putting on a lot of weight, and already being very quiet and shy, I felt awkward and out of place, especially in year 6. This was the year that our school decided to make year 7 part of high school, so it was the year that the grade six and sevens were both graduating. Our year group felt like we were second rate graduates, only getting 3 days camp as opposed to a week, and instead of an end of year river cruise, we went just went bowling. Probably worst of all, we never got the chance to feel like the oldest in the school until year 12, but by then we were already fed up with school anyway.
Year 9 camp is still fresh in my mind. Although it is already a few weeks ago I just can’t seem to forget it. There were so many events that helped me learn more about nature, and more importantly, myself. One such event was the morning of the fourth (4th) day of camp. My group needed to cross the mighty Coorong river to reach the mainland. Why was this event so important to me? Well, crossing the Coorong wasn't designed to be easy. We were paddling across the current which was constantly threatening to send us back to shore or upside down. The instructors had drilled it into us that we were not allowed to stop paddling. This morning showed me that I had strength I didn't even know I possessed.
Life comes with swift transitions and I have come finally meet mines. The time has come to my 12th grade year and I have to leave my family alone and start planning for a bigger picture .I’m now excited to say that it's my time to start applying to some of the best colleges around the country.I’ve made great progress from my 9th grade year up to my 12th grade year.

A child’s success is a parents’ success. Every parent wants their child to do well and hence when compared to the parents who actively engage themselves with their child; the academic performance of the child would be well above. But this cannot be true for all as it is sad to know that all parents are not educated. This research is done with Year 11 students and sometimes it is difficult for parents to engage and help their child even if they wish to just because the parents are not educated enough or the child is doing a different subject form what the parent is qualified in. For instance during the parent interview session, a parent is a Masters Graduate in Business and Accounts but his child is taking Chemistry, Biology and Home Economics.

All of my high school years have been structured to further my academic success in college. One goal of mine was to complete the STEM certification during high school. With this accomplishment, I have proven to myself that I will be well prepared to perform to the best of my capabilities in college. Being an engineering student will not be an easy task, but I have prepared myself the best I could to achieve my goals. Unlike many other seniors, I have chosen some of the most difficult classes our school offers so that I can better prepare myself for an engineering curriculum. This year, I wanted to receive a better education in all of the main STEM classes, so I enrolled in many AP math and science classes. In addition, I took a rigorous two week professional course in Autodesk Revit to prepare myself for courses that I will likely be using in my elective classes. I am hopeful that this will give me a head start with the classes I will take freshman year of college and afford me the opportunity for greater academic success as a college student. However, I am not counting on my senior year experiences to guarantee me success. Everything I do is to the best of my abilities. Preparation connects my life to success. Whether I understand a subject perfectly or if I’m
My 10th grade year in High School was a huge trial for me. I felt like I had every possible obstacle imaginable against me not to finish, but I was determined to reach my goal no matter what. I fought hard through my sophomore year of high school. The weight on my shoulders was heavy, I had to wake up at 5:30a.m. every morning for not only myself but for my younger brother too. While I get myself ready for school I have to make sure my little brother isn't slacking, otherwise we both would be late for school. I arrive at school before 7:30a.m so I'm not late, I go to my first period class, which was Chemistry,and work in the school’s chemlab. Which by the way was to early to have kids mixing dangerous chemical and setting things on fire. I then go to first year spanish for my second class which was by far one of my best class of the day because the teacher didn't give that much work and what she did give us would be very easy.
It is important for adolescents to participate in extracurricular activities. Student who participate in these activities improve their academic scores and social life. Extracurricular activities can also help reduce many peer pressure related problems. “They enrich the lives of the students, their families and our communities. These activities create well rounded children who learn what their interests and talents are because they have been exposed to such opportunities” (Extracurricular Activities, Blogadmin). For most adolescents extracurricular activities should be required among what they do outside of school.
