My cat

By K. Vibesheak, Hindu National College, Matale

I have a cat
Which is very fat
It chews hats
And it eats rats.

It’s brown in colour
Its body is soft like a flower
Everyday it grows heavier and heavier,
But I want it to be light like a feather.

I love my cat
Which is very fat.

By Senya Tennekoon (Grade 4), Mahamaya Girls’ College, Kandy

Sigiriya is an ancient rock fortress. It was built by King Kashyapa. Foreign tourists who come to visit Sri Lanka never fail to visit Sigiriya. It is a place of historical value.

We have to climb along a flight of steps through a large carved lion. That’s why it is called ‘Sinha giri’ or ‘Sigiri’. Sigiriya is regarded as an earth wonder.

AC Aeronauts in flight.

By Pradeepa Ariyadasa (Grade 8), Ananda College

Ananda College Aeronautical Academy was established in 2005 with the patronage of the past principal Mr. B.A. Aberathne and the master in charge Mr. Duminda Jayasuriya.

To commemorate our 5th anniversary we organized a trip to Trincomalee by flight and return by train.

On August 13, 2010 members of our academy gathered at Bellanwila temple in the morning and were blessed. We proceeded to Ratmalana airport. After checking-in, we boarded the flight “Antonov 32-B”.

At 8.00 a.m it started flying. On the way to Trincomalee we could see tiny houses, lakes and paddy fields. To enable us to view Sigiriya rock and Kandalama lake, the kind pilot lowered the flight. After landing at Trincomalee airport we had a chat with the flight crew and took photos.

Then we went to see Kinniya bridge running through the “Koddiyar” bay. After, we went to see Koneshwaram kovil and Gokanna temple, we came to our rest house. The following morning we visited Kanniya hot springs, Welgamwehera temple, Nilaveli beach and Pigeon Island. In the evening we came back to Colombo by train.

My loving parents

By Ashfa Rasmy (Grade 3), Greenwood College International, Matale

My father is Mr. Rasmy and my mother is Sabrina. They are dear to me. My father works in a shop. When he comes home for the weekend, he brings me fruits, sweets and biscuits.

He buys me whatever I want. My mother is a housewife. My mother makes tasty food. She washes my clothes and keeps the house neat and tidy. They both care for me a lot. When I am sick they are very sad and give me medicine and try to make me well soon.

They guide me and teach me good habits. They give me the happiness in life. They expect me to be a useful person in future. My parents are precious. I am thankful and ever grateful to them for the love and care given to me.

May Allah give them good health and long life.

Trip to Colombo harbour

By Kavindi Ransinghe (13 years), Kegalle Balika Vidyalaya

Last weekend we went to see Colombo harbour. That chance we got from my grandfather. He is an engineer of a ship. Many people came to see Colombo harbour. This is my second visit to Colombo harbour. I went there with my family and my relations.

After we visited Colombo harbour we got a chance to ride on the ship. That experience was fabulous. My grandfather took us to see the engine rooms, bedrooms etc., in the ship.

At the harbour I saw 263 feet long ships which transport goods containers. Anyway, thanks to my grandfather for giving us such an amazing chance.

My mother

By Danielle Perera (11 years), Stafford Int. School

My mother is a sweetheart
She really is a doll
I really, really love her
And she’s so kind to all

When I ask her if she loves me
She gives me a little wink
She says, “Of course you know that angel,
I mean what do you think?”

She call me her ‘Pumpkin’
And her little ‘Boo’
I love it when she does that
I do, I do, I do.

Her only thoughts are to
protect me
And I say with pride
My mother’s the best one in the world
And I’m so glad she’s mine

If I had a robot

By Mithila Ranaweera (Grade 8), Nalanda College

If I had a life-size robot, it would be so cool. I would have a remote control to control him. I don’t like robots made by other people, I would prefer a robot made by me. My robot should be a R/A (Robot Adaptor) multi unit. It means that it can copy any move that another robot does but ten times better.

I will make the robot work only for my voice. It must have a titanium body, two laser eyes and his hands should have tools to cook such as spatula, knives and forks. He should have an adjustable broom in his hand. He should be capable of talking.

The robot must be playful. His laser eyes should cut anything into half. It must be able to transform into things like a scooter, bike, or a robot dog. My robot must be water-proof. He should have a brain to think. He must cook meals, wash my clothes, go shopping, bathe my dog and take him for a walk.

If someone attacks me, my robot should have the equipment to settle the matter. If it is a small fight the robot should scare the attacker. Even if the burglar fired his gun due to the titanium body the bullet won’t
penetrate the robot’s body. I hope I can have a robot like that.
