Extension of School Weekend in the Philippines

This petition had 30 supporters

Do you feel tired and sick of school? Do you want more time to relax? We are making this petition to lessen the day of classes.

As a student, we have a lot of school works. Sometimes and most of the time we don't have time to rest and we don't have enough time with our families and we also need more time to accomplish given requirements in school. It might sound ideal but these issues are at the heart of a problem that's afflicting us students: many of us study too much. We often get feeling exhausted at the end of the week and we deeply dread the long week stretching ahead of us when we go to bed on a Sunday night. There are plenty of reasons to argue for an extra day off, there is a strong evidence that makes students happier and healthier giving us more time to do what we love while reducing the stress level. It would give us more space for ourselves and give more time after our friends and families who needs care. Most of us students can only attain enough sleep during weekends, adding an extra day off gives us more time to sleep and loosen up. A ton of requirements are given to us students and sometimes lesser time is given to us to accomplish this task, this can lead us to depression and can cause us stress. Allowing students to have an extra day of a weekend would mean a lot.

We believe that we must reduce the school days and to make weekend longer for students because this is great. This will boost students' morale and create a more happy society of future professionals and leaders. Join this petition let's make a change.
