My Speech – Literacy

Should schools have longer breaks ?

Have you been working at school all day and wanted a break but only got 20- 30 mins ? Well today I will be talking about why students should have longer breaks and why it is very important. As someone who has been through school, I believe lunch breaks are often rushed and stressful. With only a short amount of time to eat, students are forced to quickly eat their food and rush back to class, leaving them feeling unsatisfied and distracted. This is why I believe that school lunch breaks should be longer.

Having longer breaks helps students learn better and can clear their minds for a better understanding in the next class. Recess helps kids relax , physical education helps to release frustration and anxiety. It  plays a very important role in improving mental health by providing physical activities, time with friends and a mental break. 

How does having longer lunches help?

Longer lunches help refresh our brains more. If you’re focused on tasks all day while sitting at your desk while looking at your screen, it can be beneficial to spend time outdoors. The fresh air can boost your energy levels and clear your mind. Even sitting outside while you eat or going for a walk around school. It helps because we can get fresh air, exercise, and get our blood flowing.  This can also help provide energy and nutrients to keep the body and brain working efficiently through the afternoon which is good to help throughout the day, doing school work.

 Plus, longer lunch periods would give us a break from all the stress and pressure from school. We could relax and recharge for the rest of the day and that would probably make us more productive in class too. Longer lunch breaks give us more time and less stress to limit how fast we eat. Instead of having to eat quickly, having longer lunch breaks gives us less chance of choking or not being able to digest our food properly. Short lunch breaks also encourage kids to eat quickly. Eating quickly is unhealthy. Kids feel rushed and either eat more than they should or don’t eat enough. I think if we had longer lunch periods, we could actually enjoy our food and have time to socialize with our peers. We need time to bond with our friends and form relationships with our classmates.

In conclusion, longer school lunch breaks would be a win-win for everyone involved. Students would have more time to relax, take time when eating nutritious meals, and participate in many different activities, while teachers would have more time to prepare for their lessons and take a break themselves. I urge schools to consider extending lunch breaks for the benefit of everyone involved.
