Celebrating 50 years

The year 2015 is a very special year
for us Sujathians as this year our
Alma Mater turns 50.
Sujatha Vidyalaya was founded by
Mr. Linton Kuruppu on June 1, 1965. Mrs. Clara Motwani was the first principal of Sujatha Vidyalaya.
Our school which was based in Queens Road during the early years, re-located to its present premises at Delkanda, Nugegoda.
Sujatha Vidyalaya has grown from strength to strength and is recognized as a prestigious Buddhist Girls’ School in Sri Lanka. Presently there are around 2000 students in our school. There are classes from Grade 1 up to A/Levels in both Sinhala and English mediums.
As a part of our Golden Jubilee celebrations – lots of events have been organized by the school. The first such event was the Pirith Ceremony held on May 31, followed by a Dana for
50 priests.
There are many more events planned to be held during the following months.
As a student of Sujatha Vidyalaya, I am proud to be a part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.

The actor I like the most

The actor that I like the most is Jackie Chan. He was born on April 7, 1954 in Hong Kong. His real name is Chang
Kong-Sang. He was the only child in his family. His parents were poor. He studied martial arts and acrobatics in Australia.
He has acted in many films. He is an actor, producer and a director in many films. His famous films are, ‘City Hunter’, ‘Wheels on Meals’ and ‘Thunder Bolt’.
He has injured himself many times in stunts and fighting. His films are full of action and comedy. He has won many awards for Best Action Movie Star.
He has his own stuntman company.
He can jump from the top of a building onto a helicopter. He can run down a high wall. He can roll down from a mountain. He can dive off from one building to another and ride a moving bus by hanging on the outside.
But his personal quote is, “Don’t try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie. Study computers instead.”
So as a child I never try to act like him but I like to enjoy watching his films.

A rainy day

It was a Sunday evening. I was staying in my room and watching the weather outside from my window. Dark clouds were coming down and covering the blue sky. Because of the stormy winds, the branches were swaying. Muddy water flowed along the drains.
As it was tea time, I went to drink
something hot. I had a cup of hot tea.
After some time because the rains stopped, I went to watch cartoons.

My favourite book
My favourite book is ‘Ruby the Red Fairy’. It is a Rainbow Magic book.

interesting book and I love to read it.
I read it over and over again.

A clock speaks

My face is called the dial.
I have three hands. The big one shows the minutes.
The small one shows the hours. I go tick tock. I am
useful to all.

My sister
My sister’s name is Tarini Venara. She is eight months old. Now she is big and so cute. She rolls on her playmat. She also loves to play with me.

When we take photos of her, she is very happy. She loves to drink mother’s milk. She is not sleeping at night. She makes funny noises. When she is hungry she cries loudly. We do funny tricks to stop her when she is crying madly. She is very nice and cute. I care for her always. I love my sister very much.

Catching the bus

Run, run,
To catch a bus
Hurry, hurry
If you miss it
Never worry
There’s another bus
Coming in a hurry

Nature song
The sky is blue
The sun is true
The clouds are white
And wind is tight.

The birds sing songs
And we hear it long
The fish swim fast
But the water still last.

The flowers are blooming
And trees are glooming
People are walking
The ground is shaking.

The stars are shining
The moon gets brightening
But I still keep hearing
My nature song.

How did children win the world?
Children can win the world by showing their kindness, helping others. We can help poor children and their parents. We can do many charities each day. We collect lots of books, bags, pencils, pens and many others.
Mother Teresa has said, “If you want to make peace, you don’t talk to your friends, talk to your enemies, spread love everywhere you go, first of all in your own house”.
We help the children who have been affected by floods. Finally we can say we can win the world by doing kinds of spiritual, valuable and memorable things.

My hobby

My hobby is riding a bicycle. When I was eight years old, my grandfather gave me a sports bicycle. After several months of practicing I learnt to ride my bicycle properly.
I like to ride my bicycle very fast in the slopes.
I fell down several times and got injured.
So we have to be very careful when riding a bicycle but it is very good exercise for our body. Some people enjoy participating in bicycle races. I would also like to participate in a bicycle race one day.

I am a tree
I am very useful to everybody on the earth. I give them shade, oxygen, rain, food, drinks and even medicine. I also stop soil erosion. But some heartless people do not pay me any gratitude. They forget I give them shade. I don’t mind when they pluck my nuts to eat. It is a joy for me to give them those things. But when they break my hands and legs and later destroy my whole body, I feel very sad.
Why do people harm trees? Don’t they remember how much we help to protect the environment? I can’t bear up the pain. They cut us and sell us to earn money. Man does not love us at all. We like to help them. How many live because of Jak fruits and coconuts? Don’t you prepare your meals using coconuts?
Can man live without our support? They must think they are destroying our generation. This world will become a desert without us. I invite you to live in peace and harmony with us.

My ambition
“Tastes differ,” says a proverb. Everyone has his/her own favourite ambition. My ambition is to become a Neurologist. Neurologist is a specialist about nerves. Why I chose this ambition is because everyone thinks of same goals as doctors, engineers, teachers and many more. But I thought a bit different.
Sri Lanka has no facilities to study neurology. But I will study in a foreign country and make my dream come true. I will sacrifice my life to the wellbeing of my mother land. I will help everyone to get better and be happy.
