Diana’s Essay “Reasons Children Attend Schools”

To get higher or specialized education people study at colleges and universities. They prepare for their future career, increase knowledge and get new experiences.

I am sure children must attend secondary schools for many reasons. The reasons children attend schools are the following.

Firstly, school provides young people with knowledge and critical thinking skills. They get knowledge in different subjects, such as Math, Literature, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, etc.  But the most important thing school trains us to teach ourselves and to learn for life. As the proverb says, “Live and learn”.

Secondly, we are taught social skills. School teaches us to get on well with our classmates, schoolmates and teachers, respect other people’s ideas and thoughts, be polite and well behaved.

Thirdly, school gives us knowledge of history, culture and traditions of our motherland, be real patriots. School teaches us moral values.

What is more, school helps us make our own decisions and be responsible for our actions and the quality of our knowledge.

Moreover, school helps us use our free time sensibly, discover and develop our talents.

Finally, school trains us for a future job.

Taking everything into account, I should say that school is the main social environment for children, where they realize their talents and dreams.
