Nowadays, everyone is so busy with their daily life, finding a charity worker or the people who once worked in the community services are rare to find. Many people believe that high schools should include unpaid community services as a compulsory part of their programmes. I also strongly believe, by doing this, it will help not only a country to develop but also improve a student’s extracurricular activities. 

First of all, every year governments spend a huge amount of money on community services like neighbourhood improvement, charity works and so on. According to Time Magazine, only in 2020, the USA spends almost 2 percent of its yearly budget on community services. If the high schools make it a compulsory program, then the government won’t need to hire workers. As a result, the expenditure in this sector will decrease, and governments can use this money to improve other sectors. I believe it will be very beneficial for a specific country to develop. 

Secondly, this program will help the students to develop an extracurricular activity, and it is really important for a student to get admission into a high ranked university. The top universities around the world accept student’s admission not only based on their merit or academic report, but they also look for students who are active in extracurricular activities. Also, students are offered scholarships by many universities if they have the potential to do something better for their country. 

To conclude, I strongly believe every high school should include the unpaid community services in their study program, it will bring only benefits for the country as well as for a student.

  1. Ques – Some people say it is important to keep your home and your workplace tidy, with everything organised and in the correct place. What is your opinion about this?

    It is generally considered by some that keeping a place where a person lives or works should be clean and well-organised with things kept in their right place. This essay agrees with this statement as it is time-saving and also defines one’s personality traits as well as positive attitude.

    Firstly, Keeping things in their well-defined place makes it easier to find, whether it is one’s work area or home. In other words, it aids in reducing the time and efforts put on finding things. Furthermore, things when kept at their right place in a room makes it look more spacious, whereas messy places, look congested. To exemplify, on a meeting day, employee being not able to find the file in the mess on his table, crucial for the meeting might even put his job at risk for taking hours to find it. These kind of errors can be effectively diminished when a place is tidy and uncluttered.

    Secondly, A systematic framework of keeping things in order, reflects one’s ideas, personality and positive attitude. In fact, it shows how efficient and disciplined a person is in his life. Since childhood, we are taught to keep things in their original place, as a result of this, a person develops this habit over a period of time and this is reflected in his positive attitude towards life. For an instance, messy and unorganised places irritate people and also becomes a reason for mental distress whereas organising things brings happiness, peace and harmony in workplace as well as in home.

    In conclusion, well-maintained homes and workplaces can play a vital role in living hassle-free lives and also put light on a person’s characteristics and peaceful environment around him.
