Taj Mahal
Oh! The marble arch,
The palace of love,
Paintings of marble covers,
His beloved love.

His love for his wife,
Builds a large tower of white,
Which is large in the sky and,
Shows the symbol of extreme love.

A sad story about a doll
I’m a pretty doll. I was born in a factory in Japan. There were many friends like me. We were spending an enjoyable life in Japan. After some days, all of us were transported to  Sri Lanka. I went to a toy shop with my friends.
When I was in the toy shop, one day, a little girl called Hansali came to the shop with her mother and bought me. I was very happy. I went to her home. She liked me very much. She played with me very happily.

One day, she went to a class. Her brother played with me and broke my two hands. After some time, Hansali came. She saw this sad incident. She cried loudly. Her mother promised that she will buy another doll.
After that day, she doesn’t play with me. I’m so sad. Now I’m in a dustbin. Every day I pray to get a happy life again.

To make our mark in History

Water is a valuable natural resource. It is a limited resource too. We get water from natural sources as well as artificial sources. Natural sources are rivers, waterfalls, streams and rain. Tube wells, tanks, ponds and reservoirs are the artificial sources.
Both humans and the environment need water.

We use water for cooking and drinking. People use water for  fishing.
We need water for transportation. Not only that, we use water to generate electricity. People use water for agricultural purposes.
We need water for industrial purposes. We should use water without wasting.
We should not pollute water.

We must protect water. Water is our life blood.

An interesting Dance Festival

An amazing Dance Festival was held at the Bishop’s College Auditorium on March 7, 2014 at 6.30 p.m. This festival was organized by Alethea International School and sponsored by Daily Mirror and the Sunday Times. Many schools took part, such as; Alethea International, Leeds International, Gateway College, Asian International, Wycherley, Methodist and St. Bridget’s. My school Belvoir College International was also a part of it.

The programme actually commenced at 7p.m., because many participants were caught up in heavy rain and traffic. My school performed two dances, a Western Dance (Ballet) and Bharatha Dance by the senior girls. My sister took part in the Western Dance.All the dances were really amazing and exciting. There were dances like Western Traditional Dances, Eastern Traditional Dances and Folk Dances. The little ones from Asian International School performed lovely. My school performed extraordinarily.

At last came the Awards Ceremony, a moment which we all were waiting for. Trophies and certificates were given to cheer the talents of the performers.
My school won the 1st Runner Up prize for Bharatha Dance and 2nd Runner Up prize for the Western Dance (Ballet) and overall my school was placed third.

My favourite TV programme
‘Jewel in the Crown’ is a Korean drama and my favourite TV programme. It was a famous kids’ teledrama which was telecast by ‘Swadhina Rupavahini’ last year, on every weekday at 6.30 p.m. Then it was named as ‘Abitha Diyaniya’ and it was translated into Sinhala. The name of the main actress is Han Hyo Joo and her character was Dong Yi. The main actor is Ji Jin Hee and his character was the King Sukjong. Dong Yi started her life as a music instrument player in the Royal Palace. Then step by step she developed her life. She was a brave, cheerful and a nice character. That is why I like her character.

In the drama she had to face many obstacles during her life. However she faced them bravely and achieved her task. I was able to get many good qualities from her character. It was a nice drama which is in every child’s heart as well as in adults. I love it very much.

The Solar System
The Solar System has eight planets in it and those planets are, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. We live on Planet Earth. The Earth is the third planet from the Sun. Mercury is the smallest and fastest planet. It zooms around the Sun at 173,000 kilometres per hour speed
Venus is the hottest planet and Jupiter is the largest. It has four big moons.

They are, Ganymede, Io, Europa and Callisto. Saturn is the only planet that originally has rings around it. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. Neptune is the coldest planet in the Solar System. In the night we see so many stars. But in the Solar System there are many millions of stars. If an asteroid comes near the Earth, it won’t hit the Earth because the Earth has an atmosphere. The atmosphere is a circle of gases around the Earth.
