If I were the principal of my school I would bring about many changes in the system of running the school. Most the ways, rules and regulations have become outdated and need changes. We have a load of work for the students and hardly have they found time to play.
The school starts in the morning with assembly and much time is wasted there. If I become the principal I would stop all those long lectures about discipline and hard work. I would encourage the students to share their thoughts and experiences with their schoolmates and the teachers could guide the students with their comments on what they share with them. I would tell the students short stories with a moral in them so that they could learn some good values without undergoing the burden of the tedious lectures.
As the session begins, I would see to it that all the difficult subjects are not taught one after the other. Science should be followed by English and not by Maths. Sometimes the principals of schools have a poor knowledge of what students like and they thrust a lot down their throats without caring that they are not always receptive.
I would encourage a lot of sports and extra curricular activities like drama, music, painting, creative writing, clay modeling, photography, horse riding, swimming, dancing, etc. This would keep the students interested in coming to school and they would enjoy their long hours of stay in school. When there are so many interesting activities for the students, they remain happy and their mind is able to absorb the lessons from the most difficult subjects with greater case.
Promoting a greater degree of personal interaction between the students and teachers, thus creating a friendly atmosphere in the classroom, is a must these days. Teachers would be friends with the students and this could help to eradicate any fear that the students may have in their mind with regard to their teacher. This again would improve the working and learning atmosphere in the school.
As a principal I would do my best to lead my school towards honours in academics, sports, social and cultural activities.
