My hobby is reading. I read storybooks, magazines, newspapers and any kinds of books that I find interesting. I started this hobby when I was a little girl. I always wanted my parents to read fairytales to me. Soon they got fed up and tired. So as soon as I could, I learnt to read. I started with simple ABC’s. Then I learnt fairytales and other simple stories. But now, I can read just anything that is available. Reading is interesting because it makes our mind peaceful and we can gain knowledge and also learn new words.
Reading helps me to learn many things. I know how people lived in the past, and the wonders of the world, space travel and other things that are interesting about our world. Reading also gives us much pleasure and it is not very expensive.
Reading is the best of all hobbies. We can borrow books from the library too. So we must protect our books very, very well by not tearing and folding the edge of the pages.
I love my hobby very, very much.

The day I became a prefect
On March 14, 2013 I was surprised and so excited to hear that I was appointed as one of the senior prefects of the Primary Section of my school Sujatha Vidyalaya, Nugegoda.
My participation in most of the school activities helped me to receive this appointment. The President of the Girl Guides Association was the chief guest and she pinned the prefect badges on me and the other prefects.
Our sectional head Ms. Tisha Fernando and the other staff did all the work in choosing me and the other prefects. I also thank our Sectional Head, Principal and Vice principal for making this event a success.

My definition of success
“Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory,” says Mahatma Gandhi. That is what success means to me.
Success does not mean gaining victory for me. It is impossible to gain victory at everything because as humans we have weaknesses and we do not know everything and are not talented at everything. I define success as the effort, time and energy spent to achieve a goal. If we are happy at our efforts or if we have improved our work better than the previous efforts then it is true
If we are not satisfied or if there is a decreased performance, then it isn’t a success even if it achieves the acquired goal.
For me, success is actually based on effort, satisfaction, determination and self-esteem. Acquiring success through failures is an achievement. This is because success achieved through failures is a lasting success. It also means that we have put our full effort into acquiring our goal.
I believe that we can succeed through work done with dedication and determination not with luck. Success is achieved through
satisfaction for me. How is it achieved for you?

Why did I
Tell a big fat lie?
Lying is bad to do
When you lie
O my O my
Lying is never true
Lying is dangerous,

Lying can make
lots of people mad
One lie will make
ten fat lies
And lying is hard to do
