The Philippines is a country which tourists like to visit because of its unique beauty.
But it’s not just foreigners who likes to pay us a visit apparently.
Our country gets approximately 19 typhoons a year. It is a common to sight to see children swimMing in the flood, people panicking while carrying their refrigators and TVs, and families clinging on the roof of their houses away from the waters.
There is a proposal emerging to start the school year at August, two months than what was usual. These has spawned numerous debates from different people. Some say it’s impractical. Some say it’s just right. Not that I’m some famous person or I know someone famous for my opinion to my matter, but I’m still gonna say what’s on my mind. This is my blog post anyway.
They say we shoud start in August. Some say we should stick to June. I say why not September?
The current school year system starts at June, when the rainy season is just starting. Classes are suspended, to the
joy dismay of the students.As a consequence, lessons gets skipped, and teachers had to rush everything, leaving some lessons undisclosed, which can be detrimental to the student. This season extends until August, which I can say is the peak of it. Along with the students’ hell month, the typhoons seem to have arrived at an agreement that they should attack the Philippines every August annually. One recent occurence is the suspension of classes for four days, just this month. And last year, classes were suspended for one week. So I think I have made my point clear: June and August
are bad ideas. That goes the same for you, July. September is the best time. There are no longer typhoons so students can enjoy every class day without suspension. And Christmas is just lurking aroung. So the Christmas break can be the se break rolled into one. More time saved.
So that’s jutst my point, and it may seem weak, but let me tell you why we should not start class in any other month except September:
January–Na uh. Can’t do. The new year has just arrived, and students still got hangovers from the midnight party. They won’t be able to function properly if you start the sem in this month.
February–Hey, students need some love too! They’d be too busy with their lovey-doveys to focus on schoolworks.
March–Too much fire incidents. Can’t risk the safety of students.
April–Too hot! Who would be able to move on such a hot weather?
May–This is the time for festivities. Mothers would need their children in their kitchens.
And besides, teachers have to eat and party too, you know?
October–Halloween. Kids would be too afraid to go out of their houses because of evil spirits.
November–We should not forget the dead, should we?
December–Duh. It’s Christmas season. Who would want to study when al your family is having fun?
So you see? The best choice is September.
