An excellent article! It provides many useful suggestions of properly utlising the summer vacation by students. In this connection, I would like to add some more:-

(a) A student must be a member of a public library and inculcate the habit of reading good books and reference books of his/her favourite subject(s).
(b) Students must adopt the habit of reading newspapers and writing during this period. For example, if a student visits a tourist spot or a film, parents must encourage him/her to write about the place or the film. This practise will help him/her immensely in later life.
(c) During summer holidays, students must engage themselves in some physical activities to develop physical fitness.
