Meeting at the school fence

School is a place for training human resources. However, it also seems to be a place for other, noneducational activities. According to my own experiences, some high school students enjoy meeting each other along the school fence when they have no class or when the teacher doesn’t come to school.

Moreover, some students standing or sitting on their motorbikes talk together, both as friends and as lovers. These activities not only present an inappropriate image to the public and give a bad image to other students, but this behaviour also interrupts other students studying in the classroom.

Mey Chansakol, a grade 12 student, said that this is rather common.

“Usually some high school students wearing uniforms don’t go home when they have no class, but they meet each other to talk along the school gate and fence. Whether it is a short or long time, it really doesn’t look not good.”

According to Sakol, in order to avoid untidiness and interruption to other students in the school, no student should use the school fence as a place for talking in groups.
