Cleaning habits should definitely start at home and everything that makes an individual hygienic and proper. But more than that, maintaining a clean and healthy surrounding should definitely transcend outside a home and should adamantly be applied at school premises, where children stay for most of their younger years.
Simple Acts of Cleanliness at School
For starters, you can always contribute to maintaining your campus clean by making it a habit to wipe your feet on mats before entering the campus or even your homeroom. Starting with this simple act can contribute big when everyone does it every day. Bacteria and dirt accumulated on our shoes are the main source of transferred bacteria that may penetrate to any open wound or can be airborne that can affect someone who has a weak immune system.
The second thing a student can contribute to is something that starts at home and definitely needs to be practiced in every place you are in. Throwing your garbage on designated bins will affect the community you are in on a very positive note. Being an example to do so, will make others do it as well. Also, following segregations on a strict pace should be developed in school areas because this is the main act to help your localities’ garbage management system.
Lastly, as a school is used by a lot of people on a daily basis, the best thing to do to help with keeping everything in order is to always put things where you got them. Whether or not your school has alarm systems that will determine if you do this or not, a ring vs skybell type of alarm, you should always be responsible enough to do it consistently even if no one is watching.
Being clean even outside your home is the best evidence of a clean house. You being responsible enough to do these simple acts without being told or watched is something that you can do for yourself and for everyone in your school. Not only do you practice your responsibilities and manners but you also get to influence and teach others to do the same thing for everyone.
