Students say more trips, such as this community service trip, would make school more enjoyable.

Students get tired most of the time because of long hours of learning and testing . Sometimes it is fun to introduce some fun activities into studying that are in the interest of the students.It has great benefits to both the teacher and the students.

A great way to give students meaningful opportunities to apply their learning and lower their effective filter is to make learning fun. Not every student is dedicated to learning 24/7 and sometimes it is due to the environment in which they live. A kid who lives with a lot of families and families will most likely be hyped every time in class because they are active and used to having fun with others. While a kid who lives with only parents and in some situations are the only kids are likely to be more calmer and not used to crowds. Everyone has a unique way of making school fun.  When teachers use activities that make learning engaging and fun, students are more willing to participate and take risks. Having fun while learning also helps students retain information better because the process is enjoyable and memorable. 

I went around asking random students and staff, one way the school could be fun and I got a lot of responses. The most common one being more school trips.
