Comment on the following statement:
| Many people believe that producing a school magazine allows pupils to be creative and teaches them many skills. Others disagree and say that producing a school magazine is a waste of time when pupils have important schoolwork to do. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Many people think that making a school magazine develops creativity in pupils as well as teaches them many other skills, whereas others think it is a waste of time and pupils should focus on important schoolwork instead.
I think that producing a school magazine is a great activity for pupils. First of all, they learn to work together on a project, get their ideas across, and listen to the ideas of others. Second, they learn to accept criticism and be creative. It is also a lot of fun!
At the same time there are people who think that this activity is a waste of pupils’ time. Pupils, they believe, would be better off focusing on more important schoolwork instead.
In my opinion these people have a point, schoolwork is important. But at the same time it is developing skills like leadership, creativity, teamwork, dealing with criticism and listening to others’ opinions. Working together on a school magazine helps them acquire these skills.
In conclusion, I would like to say that although schoolwork is important, it is also important for children to learn to work together. This is an essential skill to have if one is to be successful in his or her social interactions as well as at work.
