CONTINUOUS WRITING : the importance of games in schools.

Extracurricular activities like societies, uniforms bodies and games are held in schools to encourage students to take part in these healthy activities. In fact, it is compulsory for every student to be a member of at least one society and one uniform body as well as participate in a game of their choice. Many games are available in schools such as badminton, football, hockey, basketball, tennis and netball.
     Games play an important role in schools, and it is essential that parents realize that their children are not going to school for education only. Reading and writing alone is not enough for a student to get a complete education. Physical activities in the form of games are also necessary. There is a saying that say ‘ all work and no play make Jack a dull boy ‘. It means that it would be boring for a student to be with his books all the time. He or she should also be involved in other activities like games.
     Playing games is not a waste of time or money. Some parents complain that their children have to stay back at school and this costs extra pocket money. They also argue that the time can be used for doing homework. These people probably never do any physical activities themselves because they do not know the benefits activities. Games can make us active and healthy. A students needs to relax after a long and tiring day at school. By kicking the ball around or hitting the shuttlecock, they are exercising their bodies with a relaxed mind, away from the classroom. After a game and a warm bath, they would definitely feel refreshed and can study better. Exercise promotes blood circulation and also helps us to get rid of excess fat besides toning our muscles. It ensure a healthy body that is more resistant to diseases.
     Besides making us physically fit, games can also build up our character. When we interact with other players, we make friends. We cannot be selfish when playing games as teamwork is needed to win a game. Self-discipline, punctuality and patience are also cultivated. We also learn to obey rules, accept defeat and know the importance of fair play.
     So games are important for a student to get a holistis education that would make him or her an asset to any establishment.

CONTINUOUS WRITING : staying in an apartment is better than staying in a house

     A house is a landed property which has its own yard. There are many types of houses such as bungalows, terrace, semi-detached, single-storey, and double-storey houses. Apartments are normally smaller compared to houses. They are built on top of one another. Apartments buildings can range between two to 40-storeys high. Some apartment buildings are even higher than 40-storeys. However, I disagree that staying in an apartment is better than staying in a house. I prefer staying in a house because I can do more things. Staying in a house is better than staying in an apartment because it is more spacious and convenient.
     If I live in a house, I will have garden where I can grow plants and flowers. There are very nice to look at. Working in the garden is also a good way to exercise and relieve stress. Gardening is a good form of recreation because we can enjoy the fresh air while we work out a sweat. Watching our own flowers bloom also given us an added satisfaction.
     Living in a house also allows me to keep a pet. There will be plenty of space for my pet to run and play in the garden. Rearing a pet in an apartmentis difficult. The pet will not enough space to run and play. It must also be kept inside the apartment because there is no garden.
     Staying in a house is also safer and more convenient. A house has a porch where we can park our car. It is safer to park our car in the porch of our own house than in a common car park of an apartment block. A common car park at an apartment block is normally an open space and it is sometimes dark at certain areas. We may also have to walk for quite a distance before we reach our apartment, so it could be dangerous as we do not know if there are any criminals who may lurking. A common car park is also unsafe for us to park our vehicles as our cars may be stolen or broken into. So, it is safer if we stay in  a house where we can park our cars in our own porch.
     Staying in a house is also more fun. Since it is more spacious than an apartment, we can hold various functions in our house such as barbecues and birthday parties. Houses also provide better ventilation as it has more doors and windows compared to apartments. We also do not have to use the lift, so it is faster, safer, and more convenient to stay in a house. Therefore, staying in a house is definitely better than staying in an apartment.
