Some people believe that unpaid community service should be a compulsory part of high school programmes (for example working for a charity, improving the neighborhood or teaching sports to younger children). To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Few individuals are of the argument about teaching voluntary service to students as a mandatory part of their secondary school syllabus.
This
essay agrees with that suggestion.
Firstly
,
this
essay will discuss how voluntary work for non governmental organisations will develop soft skills and
secondly
, discuss how extra curricular activities keeps them highly motivated and physically active. Free service to the society in any form proves to be of great learning to young minds. Kid's brain shouldn't be filled with bookish knowledge, as that's not the only thing required to face competition. They should
also
learn other life skills
such
as effective communication with all age groups.
For instance
, visiting an old age home and spending time with elderly people will teach them behavioural skills with senior people.
Also
, a trip to an agriculture farm for learning where food comes from will make them value the basic needs in life.
In addition
, other activities like sports can keep them enthusiastic and fit at the same time. Children mostly spend hours on studies in the classroom and tuitions which makes them very reserved in nature.
However
, schools who mandate a higher number of participation in sports, will motivate students to go to school.
For example
, a recent study, review shows, 100% attendance of students at schools where involvement is sports is compulsory. In conclusion, voluntary work should be a mandatory for creative brain development, which happens from childhood,
also
extra-curricular activities makes students proactive.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
