It was fun being a student. My teacher was Mrs. L.T. Alcotibo. She was very kind and like a mother to us. In my class, there were 48 pupils and all of them were my friends.
My class had a lot of charts.
My teacher treated all of us equally. My teacher taught us Maths, Civics, Geography, Music, Science, English and other subjects. My favourite subjects were Maths and English. We were all like one family and I will never forget my stay as a Grade Six student.
Now I’m living in Sri Lanka with my family as my dad is Sri Lankan. I attend Al-Asaafeer International School in Dehiwala along with my kid sister and brother. I am studying in Grade Seven.
I love to go to school daily.
My class teachers, Mrs. Ilham and Mrs. Pushpika are very kind and helpful to me in my studies. I have been selected as the leader of my school band and I’m very proud of it. All the class mates and schoolmates in my school are very friendly and helpful to me.

On February 4, we get together and celebrate the Independence Day on a grand scale. We are really proud to take a look at the past and commemorate what we have achieved.
We were under the power of three foreign nations, the Portuguese, Dutch and the British. The British ruled for 133 years. During these times Sri Lankans had to go through a hard time.
Tea was introduced to our country and modes of transport were given. They took our lands and tried to make Sri Lanka a desert. Our brave soldiers rebelled against this and at last we were able to live as a sovereign nation.
Also we are celebrating the end of the 30 year war. We got freedom from the terrorists and now we are not afraid to live under one flag.
We should be grateful to our national heroes who offered their lives to protect Mother Lanka. One may be fair, the other dark and still another yellow, but we are all the same family, the same species. So I think that peace will remain in Mother Lanka and everyone will live happily and united forever!
Looking forward to a new school year
By Sathira Perera
It’s 2012. A new year, new class, new teachers, new books, new shoes and new hopes too. My school re-opens on January 9 and I have a lot of good hopes and dreams about the first day in my new class.
Yes, I have covered my exercise books with brown paper and cellophane. I have ironed my new uniform, polished my shoes, packed my bag, so I am all ready and looking forward to a new school year.
I am hoping to do my studies also well. I read all the text books for Grade Seven for this year’s class. So I think the new class work will be easy. Hoping to do the school work to my maximum best, obeying the teachers and helping others, is my ambition in Grade Seven in 2012.
