    Write an article for your school magazine in which you argue that schools should spend more money on...

    A room for leisure.

    It is a known fact that an area, such as our school would be more appealing to our students, if there was a personal attraction. As most of you may be aware, our school has below national average attendance rates by a jaw dropping 37%. When a survey was carried out questioning your fellow peers why they chose not to attend many sited that there was simply “nothing to do” and that they found coming to school “boring”. So surely something must be done, so that the betrayed students have something “to do”?

    Not only should schools create an optimum educational environment; they should also create a fabulous, fun and friendly social environment. So by creating a room for leisure they will successfully achieve this.

    However some believe that by creating a room for leisure, schools would be seen as nothing but a social hub. However this is not the case, as a study carried out at Chester university showed that by providing students a chance to fully “recharge their batteries” in between lessons, increases their concentration by a staggering 27%! Hence increasing the marks obtained in their exams by an earth shattering 64%.Which would in turn favour the school as our students results would outshine that of others around the country.

    Furthermore, Professor Full marks asserts that giving students motivation will make them work harder as they will want to do well. Creating a room for leisure will fulfil this as providing a room with top of the range gadgets and gizmos will motivate the students, because it’ll show the students what money can buy. Thus making them want to work harder at school, so they’ll have the money in the future to buy whatever the wish to.

    In stark contrast however people believe that spending money on a room for leisure is like “throwing money down the drain”. But surely a schools purpose is to educate its pupils and help them perform to the best of their ability. So if a room for leisure can significantly benefit the students then it’s worth every penny.

    On the whole, the benefits of providing our students with a room for leisure, dramatically outweighs the minor negatives. As our student’s attendance, performance and even motivation will take a turn for the better.

    please can someone mark this out of 27 its for my english gcse tomorrow

    Allows comparison because the starting masses are different.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to do the same. At least then, if it is a bad question, you'll have more time to think of answers.

    Good luck everyone!!!
