Link: Experts laud move to have students clean schools
Summary (50w): A move to make all schools include cleaning activities by the end of the year could bring long term benefits to students. It will help build character, cultivate a sense of ownership and spill over to the home environment. They will learn to take responsibility and have opportunities to work with others.
Opinion: We strongly agree with the Ministry of Education that students have to participate in cleaning activities. This is because such activities can teach the students to keep their environment clean and not litter, teaching them to be responsible for their environment. When they clean with their classmates, they also learn to work together in groups, having chances to communicate. Doing so also impart values and build character in them. Thus, we strongly agree that students have to participate in cleaning activities as it a platform for them to develop and benefit from.
