(b) I spent about 3000 on my books this year.

(c) I would like to wear light pink shirt with maroon trouser. 

(d) In favour of the topic ‘We should have uniforms in school’

School uniform itself brings the concept of uniformity in its name. When all students come dressed I the school uniform they all are considered equally irrespective of their cast, religion or social status. All poor and riches sit together wearing the same colour of equality. School uniform also brings discipline among students as they all come neatly and properly dressed up. Students do not get distracted by the different colours and different designs of clothes worn by other students. It also saves money on buying new clothes for school. Also a uniform helps to distinct students of one school from the other school. Thus, all schools should have a proper uniform to bring unity among students and build self-confidence among them.

Against the topic ‘We should have uniforms in school’

We know that all human beings are characterised by their own style or choice. But uniform does not allow students to carry their style. Most of the private schools these days provide uniforms at very high prices which are sometimes difficult to afford by students of middle class families. This becomes very stressful for students because if they won’t buy those expensive uniforms then they will be punished in the class. So, this is the major reason, I don’t support the concept of uniform in schools.

Staying in School

Let us talk

(a) Do you know someone who wanted to study, but could not do so? Talk about them in the class.

(b) Every child has a right to free education upto class VIII. Do you think that all children are able to study up to class VIII?

Answer.

(a) Yes, there’s a boy in our neighbourhood who wanted to study but he had to discontinue his studies after class 8 due to poor financial condition of his family. He had to start working to earn for his family. But he is very passionate about studies and is now planning to continue it through distance learning. He is an inspiration for all.

(b) All children are not able to study up to class VIII due to some unavoidable reasons. One reason can be that schools would be far away from their homes. Another major reason is that their parents don’t want them to go to schools as they want their children to help them in earning extra income for the family.

What will be the total cost of Anita’s 20 boxes?

Answer.

Given that Cost of 1 box = Rs 2000

∴ Cost of 20 boxes = 20 × 2000 = Rs 40,000
