This term our school has offered more than ten optional courses from which students can choose. The courses are given from 4:00 to 5:30 every Thursday afternoon. Students take great interest in optional courses. Their favourites are computers, spoken English, arts and so on . They say they have learned a lot that is not taught in text books and they got a great deal of practice. However, students are not quite satisfied. They hope that more optional courses will be offered or the homework would be less. They suggested more trips and visitsshould be organized so that they can learn more about what's going on outside school.
