Benefits of traveling back at least once to your school
If you are a school dropout or a graduate, you will surely have some memories that you feel like cherishing throughout your life. You may have certain sets of stories that you would like to remember to your children and even grandchildren of how you played or fared at the school performances. Irrespective of your age and the place you are right now if you really want to have a fun moment then decide to go back to your school at least once.
Traveling back to your school just as a visit will help you know how your school is performing currently. Who are the teachers, and what the school is up to in terms of academic scores, sports scores, and even the rankings that are being given to the schools by the top authorities? You may also understand the quality of education that your school is imparting to its students nowadays. Talk to the current school principal or a head teacher and understand if there is anything that you can contribute as a person or an ex-student to the school to make it better in terms of amenities etc.
No wonder you may feel like a different world when you climb the school steps. Because it is the same school that helped you reach wherever you are now. You may have some sad stories and some interesting stories as well related to your school that if you get an opportunity to share with the current students, don't feel shy. If possible, get in contact with your teachers who taught you through the school records. You can make a visit to your favorite teacher's house or just make a call and remind them of how you still recall the memories of being their student.
If you are currently living in a city that is really far away from your school, don't consider traveling to your school as an expense but an investment for you to connect to your roots. It would be great if you can meet your school friends as well at a place near your school and organize a school reunion of your batch with close friends or the entire batch. The choice is yours but definitely, you will feel delighted to go back to your school.
It will make you understand how life has changed you from being a stubborn and adamant kid to a more humble human being now. Traveling to school has many other benefits like you can get to know how the education system has changed in the present times wherein there are online and offline classes held to combat the spread of the viruses that are hitting the country due to the coronavirus pandemic. If there is anything you can offer to improve the IT or educational infrastructure in your school, you can even talk to your corporate friends to get some official funding done so that the present generations of students remember your noteworthy contribution.
As they say, every person goes through different phases in their life but the school phase is one of the best because there are many incidents in the educational institution that shapes the person into who he or she is today. So be grateful to your school for giving whatever it could in that time and resources.
