Why does school starts in June here in the Philippines?
I mean, I get it that they reserve the summer season of April and May for vacation but I just think that the month of June isn’t very conducive for studying. For the benefit of those who aren’t from the Philippines, June is considered as the month of bad weather. It is in this month we start to experience a lot of rainstorms and flood.
So imagine how difficult it is for the students to get on with their classes when the weather is all cold and wet. How do you expect us to stay up and concentrate with our lessons when the climate forces us to cozy up and stay indoors? Of course we cannot just stay out of school every time that it rains but when it’s this heavy, do you think it’s appropriate to send students to school? When it’s pouring and chilly and windy outside, our body’s natural instinct would be to just stay as warm as possible. It is also inevitable that we would feel all sleepy and lazy. I know it’s not an excuse for not studying well but it is true.
So yeah, I just think that it’s better for classes to resume in other months instead of June. I think it would make students more productive and it would lessen the hassle. And uhm yeah, because I still don’t want to go back to school on Tuesday.
