Keep learners engaged during the holiday

During the ongoing long holiday, it is crucial to keep learners actively engaged to prevent them from losing focus.

While at school, students were involved in both academic and co-curricular activities, such as ball games, drama, music, and swimming.

Despite the holiday being a time for relaxation, it is imperative to ensure that learners remain positively occupied to steer clear of negative influences like drug abuse, smoking, alcoholism, and immoral behavior.

Many high school and university students have succumbed to undesirable activities due to a lack of positive engagement and the influence of bad company.

Parents and guardians play a pivotal role in guiding their children during this extended break. Encouraging participation in church youth programs, local sports like football tournaments, and fostering a reading culture in libraries are excellent ways to keep students positively engaged.

Additionally, involving students in home activities such as garden farming—focusing on vegetables, fruits, and short-term crops due to the current El Niño rainfall—provides productive and educational experiences.

It is essential to minimize unnecessary trips to relatives, as some negative behaviors may be acquired from certain family members.

Therefore, the responsibility lies with parents, guardians, and stakeholders to ensure that students make the most of this extended holiday by engaging in positive activities, ultimately shaping a brighter future for them.
