Poson Poya day
By Hashani Kumarasinghe (Grade 8),
Vision International School,
This year on Vesak day we
celebrated the 2600th year of
enlightenment of Lord Buddha. Arahat Mahinda came to Mihintale to introduce Buddhism to Sri lanka, 282 years after the death of Lord Buddha. King Devanampiyatissa was the
king of Anuradhapura.
On a full moon day the king was hunting, chasing a deer on Mihintale rock, he heard the words of Arahat Mahinda, “Tissa! Tissa! Come to me”. He was shocked and shouted “Who dared to call me by my name”. He saw Arahat Mahinda in a pleasant look. “We are disciples of Lord Buddha,” Arahat Mahinda replied calm and quietly. The King was pleased by the words of Arahat Mahinda.
Arahat Mahinda wanted to test the king if he was wise enough to
understand Lord Buddha’s Dhamma. He asked some intellectual questions and the king answered very wisely. It was a wonderful and logical dialogue. The king and his group dropped their arms down and sat to hear the “bana” Mahinda Thero preached to them “Chulla Hatthipadopama Suttraya”. Upon listening, all of them embraced Buddhism and surrendered to the Triple Gem.
This year we celebrated 2318th Poson festival on June 15, Poya day. King Devanampiyatissa was the first Buddhist king of Sri Lanka.

The day I rule the country
By Sayami Jeewakaratne (Grade 2),
Lyceum Int. School, Panadura
When the day is come that I rule the country, I will change many rules.
One rule I will make is not to take drugs because it is bad for health. I will let my friends and neighbours do whatever they want and go wherever they want to go.
The other rules I am going to make is always cross the road by a zebra
crossing. Another rule is never litter on roads. Don’t hurt anyone or others’
feelings is one important rule I am going to make. But the most important rule is to treat others with love and compassion.
Trip to Trincomalee
By Aysha Akber (Grade 4),
Sussex College, Kandy
Last month we went to Trincomalee with my
parents. First we went to a hotel and we had a rest.
In the evening we had a sea bath. The Nilaweli beach is the most beautiful beach in Sri Lanka.
We had tasty food with fish curry. In the morning we saw fishermen who were catching fish. Then we went to Kinniya, to see the seven hot wells.
I touched the water of all the seven hot wells. It was warm.
Then we saw the Prima factory, Mitsui cement
factory and the lovely
natural harbour in Trincomalee. We saw the Kinniya bridge which was built recently and it is one of the longest bridges in
This is the first trip to Trincomalee. I enjoyed myself visiting Trincomalee very much.

Completely changing life
Decorates the whole world
Which are eternal
An immeasurable sacred gift
Makes everything better
No words can explain
The notion in the heart
Which gives birth to
Thousands of noble thoughts
This is the sweet fragrance
Which freshens the soul.
