Upper primary students are taking their first major examination PSLE that will affect their future. However, Social Networking Sites (SNS) act as a distraction from studying. The impact of excess usage of SNS may be more significant in students than adults as they are not mature enough to handle them. Thus this problem needs to be solved as soon as possible because time wastage on SNS interferes with students’ daily lives and open doors to dangerous situations that can lead to serious social problems. One of the negative impacts include fall in grades, deteriorating relationship with family and friends, increase risk of developing anti-social behaviours. These effects are actually far fetching and can lead to further loss of interpersonal skills, poor career prospects and even slowing down our country's economic growth.
Therefore we hope to garner support from you guys to petition for MCYS to reduce this wastage.
