How I spent my holiday
By Murshed Amir
Lyceum International School
During my school
holidays I went on a trip with my family and our cousins. We went to Kandalama Hotel.
It's surrounded by jungle and sometimes you get to see the animals. From my grandmother’s and my room we could see a
beautiful view outside.
I saw a monkey with a baby. My cousins and I went for a swim. There was a variety of food to eat. I enjoyed my holiday.

My pet is a dog. Her name is Nala. She is black in colour. She's beautiful.
I play with Nala. Nala is brave and she's a loyal dog. Nala is friendly, nice and a loving dog.
Nala barks when strangers come. Nala is my best friend. She loves to go to the sea and swim all day long. She likes to eat meats, chicken and fish. She likes to play with a ball. She likes to fetch the ball all the time. Nala hates cats and is scared of crackers.
I love Nala and Nala loves me.

The trees, the flowers, the lakes, the rivers,
Swaying in the wind,
The water, flowing and the flowers dancing,
And the children playing merrily,
What joy it gives the eyes to see!
Nature, a pleasure,
relaxation for the mind and soul,
What pleasure it gives the people
Who are filled with
But, why do people harm this Nature?
The flowers give a good fragrance,
Trees give shelter,
For it to give all this
We should take care of Nature!
My trip to the Land of the Merlion
By Tristan Pereira
L. P. F. Academy
I travelled on the National Carrier to the Land of the Merlion – Singapore, and on my way I had fun in the aircraft.
I played computer games and watched cartoons in the aircraft.
When we got there, we went to the famous Singapore Zoo. There we saw the famous 'white tigers' and they were in the water. The sea-lions put on a show and one of them kissed a girl and a boy from the audience. The monkeys and orang-utan were all in the open and not in cages and there were many other animals too.
Next we visited the famous Orchard Road and did some shopping
(Not me, my parents.)
After that we went to the 'Universal Studios' at Senthosa Island and they had seven sections there, 'Hollywood', 'Madagascar', 'Far, Far Away', 'The Lost World', 'Ancient Egypt', 'Sci-Fi City' and 'New York'. Each of these
sections had its own games and rides. I went on some of them with my mother and on some of them with my father. I enjoyed going on the rides but sometimes I was a bit frightened.
We also went to the 'Underwater World'. There we saw a lot of big fish and we even went in a tunnel under the water and we saw the fish from
underneath. I also saw
sting-rays in a big glass tank.
I enjoyed my trip and wish I can go again

My train ride
By Rashvin Senanayake (7 years),
British School in Colombo
We were coming back from my grandmother's house and we decided to go home by train. So we went to the Ganemulla station. We got our
tickets from the counter. We saw an express train speed by. Our train came next and we got into a 3rd class coach.
Our train stopped at some of the big stations. We went in this train to Colombo Fort Railway Station. Then we bought three more tickets for Nugegoda, before getting on the next train to take us on to the last part of our trip. On the way we saw a de-railed engine and a golf club. We got off the train and took a trishaw to get to our house. The train ride was really fun.
