Students should really just take a break during the school holidays

It appears that kids these days are always trying to suss out part-time jobs whilst waiting for the release of exam results or during their year end holidays. I find this trend particularly worrying.

As a student, his/her academics takes top priority, even more so in Singapore where the education system is so unforgivingly competitive. I've witnessed more than a handful getting drawn into the hustle culture where they habitually overwork themselves during the regular school term/semester to the point of near exhaustion, to the point where it becomes a "lifestyle". So why still grind away instead of properly resting up when it's time to do so (assuming you or your family are not in any dire financial need)?
