If the clock was not invented
clock is the machine that tells us the time. Suppose the clock wasn't
invented, what will happen to the children and the elders? They
will not be able to know the time. The children and the teachers
won't come in time to the school. The others will not go for work
at the proper time. Oh! What will happen to the television programmes?
They will all be mixed up! One day, the space stories will be telecast
in the morning and on the other day, it will be telecast at night.
I must be, I will be, and I shall be thankful because the clock
holidays are always special. I like to perform all the Avurudu customs
and most of all to open my presents.
The day before the new year, we visited our neighbours with sweetmeats
and they too came to our place.
We got up early morning on the 14th of April and dresses up in new
clothes. After that my mother lit the fire at the auspicious time
while my father and I lit crackers.
At the next nakath time we ate milkrice and I worshipped my parents,
offering betel leaves. My father gave me some money and my mother
gave me a story book.
We visited my grandmother and aunties on Saturday and stayed at
my uncle's estate bungalow that night. After that we went to see
my grandparents in Bandarawela.
We also spent a day at Kataragama. I enjoyed playing on the beach
at Kirinda. We left Bandarawela and went to my father's tea estate
before coming to Kandy.
However, I managed to finish my holiday homework right on time.
A very happy new year holiday came to an end and a busy school term
started on April 26.

She has a dog and she prays to God.
You paint vases and
There are bugs and
You give lots of hugs
You have a pet fish
And you make a birthday wish.
From your loving Ramya
Sometimes you crawl
But then you should stand up
And you stand up tall.
Things go wrong
Then don't shed a tear
Just stand up, stand up strong.
Think you're the best
You can do anything
Make others feel small beside you
And puff up your chest.
Don't be weak
When bad things happen
Don't look back
Just keep climbing the peak.
Try, try and try
One day you will fly
When that day comes
We'll wave to you in the sky!
is a good habit and an interesting hobby too. It is a useful way
of spending leisure time. We can gain a lot of knowledge by reading.
By reading books and newspapers we can learn about science, history
and general knowledge.
It improves our language and spellings. By reading newspapers we
learn about current events. Reading gives the highest kind of pleasure.
A widely-read person has a large variety of facts, thoughts and
Books are like good friends. Friends may sometimes leave us but
not the knowledge we get from books. Reading completes a man.
Goes the glass dish,
The dog has eaten the fish!
BANG! Goes the flower pot,
Spilling water over the baby's cot.
The television, the radio and the stool,
And every single garden tool,
Have been broken beyond repair by Jake,
Making mother spoil the cake!
The bottles, glasses and make-up set,
The windows and the dining set,
Have been broken by naughty Hilda,
For she has started to break like Rhonda!
So much less noise! So little peace!
Never a moment of golden piece!
For they all seem to love to break
Everything in the house they break!
is rubbish? Rubbish is what we throw away. Things that are no more
of use to us.
Rubbish can be of different kinds - they can be kitchen refuge,
old papers, old faded flowers, unwanted odd things and old books
which we collect and later find them just rubbish.
Even though this rubbish is not useful to us when we throw them
away, it can be of use to us as well as others by recycling. The
rubbish that is recycled are, sweet wrappers, tin cans, food waste,
garden waste and lots more.
The rubbish is dumped at a particular place marked out by the government.
Some of the rubbish like metal objects, furniture, fabric and garden
waste are recycled to be made use of in many other ways.
So you see, rubbish that is unwanted by us is used by others in
different forms. So rubbish helps us in various ways after being

Some days I was on duty in the kitchen and helped to cook our meals.
We climbed the Hunnasgiriya Mountain and visited the Dalada Maligawa
in Kandy. One day we made a trip to Mahiyanganaya and stayed over
night. We went to Dambana and saw the Veddha Community. On our way
back to Kandy we stopped at the Victoria Dam. We had our Campfire
on the 5th night. My family came over from Colombo for the evening.
Camping was really tough at times but it was also fun. I learnt
a lot from this camp.
The person I like most
person I like most is my grandfather. He is my father's father.
He loves books. He knows many languages. He teaches me English.
I study grammar and reading with him. He often tells me, "reading

History.' It is a big book. I don't know when I am going to finish

our houses with flags, colourful lanterns and buckets. At night

Cards to our neighbours, friends and relations. Buddhists all around
the world celebrate Vesak Day and it is a very enjoyable and happy
day, especially for little children like us.
