Mahatma Gandhi
By Nehaa Rajamohan (10 years), Methodist College

Mahatma Gandhi was the greatest world leader of the 20th century. He is called the ‘Father of the Nation’ in India. He was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar in Gujarat. After studying law in England, he went to South Africa to practice law.

He was not treated well there because he was not a white man. He protested against the policy of discrimination of the government for many years and at last the Indians were given a few rights.
Then he returned to India. Here he fought for the freedom of the country. His weapons were ‘truth’ and ‘non-violence’. At last India got its freedom on August 15, 1947. But Mahatma Gandhi was shot by Nathuram Godse on January 30, 1948.

My school

By Rizmi Razeen (10 years), Zahira College, Colombo 10

My school is Zahira College. It is situated in Maradana, Colombo 10. It was opened on August 17, 1892.
The first headmaster of our school was Sir Warpichi Marikar. The motto of our school is “Allhamdu Ililah”. The first Muslim Principal of our school was Hon. T. B. Jayah.

The meaning of Zahira is ‘Excellent’. The first name of our school was Al-Madara-Sathul Zahira. Our school was made by two Sri Lankans and an Egyptian. Their names are Sir Warpichi Marikar, Orabipasha and Abdul Azeez. I love my school very much.

Who am I?

By Riveen Kariyawasam (7 years), Lyceum Int. School

I am a little thing
I fly from flower to flower
I have a big hive
Where I have my family

I have a big queen
Who lays so many eggs
I am a little thing
That buzzes around

Oh! I am a little bee
Everyday I fly from flower to flower
I do not stop working at all
Oh! I’m just a little bee

My village

By Livinya Jayathilleke (9 years), Visakha Vidyalaya

My village is Kithulgala. It is very nice and beautiful. My village is green in colour all the time.
There are coconut, tea and rubber estates in my village. Very kind people live in Kithulgala.
There are many rubber trees in Kithulgala. Beautiful flowers like rose, waterlily and anthurium grow in my village.

There are many beautiful and attractive places like jungles, waterfalls, mountains and flower gardens.
It is very famous for kithul jaggery which is made out of kithul trees.I want my village to be clean and tidy everyday.

My trip to Bopath Ella

By Fazla Azmi (Grade 6), Mukarramah Int. School

It was the night before Christmas when we decided to go on a trip. We had many ideas, but decided on a trip to Bopath Ella Falls. It was Christmas Day and I got up early in the morning. I waited eagerly to begin our trip and at about 9.30 we started out.

We went by van. Some of my relatives also joined us. On the way we took our breakfast. We enjoyed a lot even inside the van. We sang songs, danced, said jokes and also shared our feelings.

At last we arrived at the place. It was 11.30 and I was still waiting to see the falls. We took our towels and other necessary items. First we crossed a small water-path and then went to the falls.

What an amazing place! It was very beautiful to see. It is in the shape of a Bo leaf. We
bathed there and took many photographs.

Finally we came out and our departure time was 5p.m. We enjoyed ourselves and were very happy. This was an unforgettable day in my life.
