Foreigners came to our school

By Kushani Prabodhani (12 years), Sanghamitta Girls’ College, Galle

My school is Sanghamitta Girls’ College in Galle. On February 21, ten foreigners came to our school from Kineton High School in England. There were four boys, four girls and two teachers.

The boys were James, Kyle, Joel and Alex. Three of the girls were Rachel, Sophie and Eliena. James, Joel and Rachel came to our class and chatted with me and my friends. And they sang songs with us. They were very funny.

We were very happy. We liked them very much and I will never forget that nice day.

My favourite game

By S. A. M. Azeem (Grade 5), Amana Int. School, Kurunegala

My favourite game is cricket. There are two teams. In each team there are eleven players. There are six ‘sticks’ (wickets), three at the back and the others in front. They choose the batting team by tossing.

The first two players would enter the pitch for batting. There are two types of boundaries, sixes and fours. There are 50 overs for each team. There are three types of disadvantages, catch, wicket and lbw. There are two types of balls, wide ball and no ball.

My favourite player is Sachin Tendulkar of India. The birthplace of cricket is England. There are many countries showing very keen interest in the World Cup series. Sportsman-like people appreciate cricket and it is considered a gentleman’s game.

My grandmother

By Bishmi Sabaragamuwa (Year 3), C.I.S., Kandy

My grandmother’s name is Wimala Edirisinghe. Her age is 80 years. She was a housewife. Her village is Wavinna. She has four children. Her husband’s name was Wilson Edirisinghe.

My grandmother’s favourite food is curd and honey. Her favourite drink is water. She was born on September 30, 1930. My grandmother is very thin. She wears saris everyday. She had
long hair but now she has short hair.

She has two grandsons and one grand-daughter. She never tells lies. She does her best. She doesn’t like if somebody helps her. She loves everybody and I love her too.

My favourite cricketer

By Hasitha Jagoda (Grade 6), Sussex College, Negombo

My favourite cricketer is Muttiah Muralitharan. He is 36 years old. Muralitharan is a past student of St. Anthony’s College, Katugastota. He took 709 wickets to break the world record. He would take more wickets in the future matches.

Muttiah Muralitharan has his own style of spinning the ball. He has brought more pride to Sri Lanka.
I wish he would help us win the ICC World Cup 2011.

My favourite book

By Meghana Panagoda (11 years), Good Shepherd Convent, Kandy

My favourite book is ‘The Mystery of the Disappearing Cat’. The author is Enid Blyton. The story is about how Lady Candling’s Siamese cat, Dark Queen gets stolen. Mr. Tupping her gardener ill-treats everyone.
Luke his helper is suspected of stealing the cat. He then gets frightened and runs away to join a circus.

The Five Find-outers are at work to solve the mystery with their dog Little Buster’s brains and Inspector Jenks help. Mr. Goon, the village policeman is also on the case. It is a very interesting story with many exciting happenings.

My ambition

By Aanisha Jiffry (Grade 5), St. Thomas’ Girls’ School, Matale

My ambition in life is to become a doctor in future. Now I’m studying at St. Thomas Girls’ School, Matale in Grade Five. I’m ten years old. I live at Mandandawela, Matale and my father is Mr. M.I.M. Jiffry. He is a doctor working at the Matale Hospital.

I have three uncles also doctors. So I’m highly interested in this noble profession. It is to make the patient alright. I also would like to see a patient whom I treated go out from the hospital. It will be my
happiness and satisfaction.

My pet

By Tharushi Madiwake (Grade 6), Swarnamali G.C., Kandy

My pet is a rabbit. It is brown and white in colour. It has milky white ears. I love its long ears. It hops from place to place with its hind legs. My father had made a cage for my rabbit. I call it Sudu. I always feed my Sudu Hawa. It loves to eat undupiyaliya leaves. I spend my leisure time with my sister to take care of my Sudu Hawa.

It may be nice as pets, but farmers do not like them because they eat up all the carrots and yams. Rabbits are raised for their meat and fur. My Sudu Hawa is not going anywhere because I give all he wants.
