An ideal student is a model for others. He is fully aware of his duties and has some good qualities. An ideal student is an asset to a school, society and to the nation as a whole. A student of today is a parent and citizen of tomorrow. Ideal students are noble, studious and high-minded in their duties. But they are conscious of their mission in life. They are bold, frank, truthful and honest but never mean, selfish and narrow-minded. Politeness is their ornament.
They hate none but love all. An ideal student is self-disciplined.
He obeys his parents, elders and teachers. He is punctual in coming to the school and regular in studies. He hates sin but not the sinner. He is always cautious in choosing friends. An ideal student cultivates good and beneficial habits. He never neglects his health. He is very strong of character, both in mind and body by regular practices of physical exercises in order to keep them fit.
He knows that if character is lost everything is lost. He is economical both in time and money. He is in good books of his teachers and parents.
Childhood as Important Life Stage
Childhood is a stage of formation of character. A child is sent to school for essential training for his future life where the value of discipline in life is learnt. Here he is under the direct training and control of his teachers who appraise his talent, punished for his folly and guide him in his studies and in the improvement of his habits to mould him into an ideal character so that he may not have any problem in his later life Thus he comes to know what is good and what is bad in this world. When this sense in him is properly developed, he becomes as ideal student.
He can prove himself to be honest, obedient and bold in his character. An ideal student is he who is conscious about his duties and responsibilities towards his family, his society and his country and bears a good moral character by leading a simple life with noble thinking, being patriotic, respectful towards his superiors, and compassionate towards his juniors. If a student scores high marks in an examination, it does not mean that he should be called an ideal student, unless he possesses all those good qualities.
