Some people think that several short holidays from school are better, while others think one long summer holiday for the year is better for children. Discuss and include your own opinion and relevant examples from your experience.
School holidays- long are short- always bring happiness to students. I would rather go with one long vacation, rather than many shorter ones. Let us explore various aspects of this topic.
There are several strong reasons to support one long annual-vacation. The strongest reason is that it gives enough time to learn a new skill. To quote an example, I learnt swimming and playing guitar during my summer vacations. Developing a new skill requires long-dedicated training. It is possible to dedicate long hours, if there is no homework to do. Second reason is that it gives enough time to travel and explore new places. I still remember how I enjoyed my trip to Srinagar and Kashmir during my summer vacations. I cherish the old-days I spent there. Lastly, long vacations give us opportunity to spend time with our grandparents and cousins. During our vacations all my relatives used to gather at one place. It was like an unending carnival. Right from the beginning of the day to the late nights, we used to enjoy to the hilt without the worries of tomorrow.
There are several advantages of short vacations also. They help to break the monotony of a mundane routine. For example, winter vacations after half-yearly exams rejuvenate a student. As such, school routines are too hectic these days. A short break helps a student to gear up for the days ahead. For that matter, even two-days week-off also serves the purpose.
To conclude, while there are positive points on both sides of argument, I tend to go with long yearly holidays, rather than several short breaks.
