What is a school?To me, a school is the center of education.It provides intellectual ,emotional as well as spiritual enrichment. I am sure everyone has their own notion of what an ideal school is.It is a place where one feels most comfortable to learn in. In my opinion,an ideal school would consists of a building with an ultra modern infrastructure and top-notch facilities.All the classrooms will have colourful walls with wonderful paintings and thought-provoking pictures hanging on them.All the classrooms will be well-lit and fully air-conditionered.It would be perfect if the tables and chairs are arranged in a semi-circle facing the teacher. Apart from that,we will also need a well-equipped library with the state-of-art facilities for students to conduct their research and studies. Computer cataloguing should also be introduced to make referencing easier. In addition an ideal school should have a shopisticated gymnasium and sports centre.Athletes and swimmers can also train at the school mini-stadium and swimming pool. Students nowadays are burdened with homework and endless examinations.My constructive and productive homework shoul be given instead of burdening homework.Students should not be doing their homework for the sake of doing them.Teachers could perhaps have Biology classes outdoors so that students can really appreciate the beauty of nature or organized field trips to exhibition and conventions to make learning interesting. Traditional art and culture classes should also be held in the ideal school to nurture the spirit of appreciation among students. Moreover,to maximize the students learning capacities,lessons should start at 10.00 a.m.There should be breaks in between so that students can digest knowledge from the previous lesson instead of rushing to the next lesson straight after the previous one. In this era of globalization,ICT is of upmost importance .So why can’t schools have paperless teaching and learning?Heavy bags and tons of books should be a thing of the past.Besides,it will also great if the students have teleconferencing and online forum with scholars from all over the world. The notion of ideal is sometimes painfully defined as an idea existing only in imagination and is not likely to come true.However I believe the idea of creating an ideal school would not merely remain a dream after all.
