Winner: The moon
The moon is the largest natural satellite of the Earth. It is the
fifth largest satellite of the solar system. It does not possess an
atmosphere. It is the closest spherical body to the Earth. It cannot
produce its own light. The light we see is the light that is reflected
from the sun. When we see the Moon from the Earth its shape varies. But
the most beautiful view is its fullest form which we see on Poya Days.
The ‘rabbit’ which we see are the craters on its surface. From ancient
times people had many ideas about the moon. Some believed it was God and
worshipped it. The first person to set foot on the moon was Neil

Our present principal is Mrs. Nelum De Alwis. Now we have nearly 2000
students and 200 teachers. In our school we have three Houses called
Jones, Bellerby and Nash. Our school holds special events and plays. We
also have many sports in our school. I love my school very much.
Winner: Are we in danger?
Pollution is probably the most serious problem facing the present
world. There is pollution of ecosystems such as water, air, soil, and
sound. Pollution causes serious damage to our surroundings. It is caused
by man because animals don’t pollute the environment. They don’t use
polythene, harmful chemicals etc. which harm the environment.
Nowadays pollution has led to global warming which affects the global
climate pattern. We are in a dangerous situation and we should
contribute towards protecting the environment. I’m a Sri Lankan, so I
believe that all Sri Lankans must fight pollution. We can enjoy the
beauty of nature and have nothing to fear as we are safe. Planet Earth
does not belong only to humans, we are only a part of it. So, remember
that we don’t have any right to destroy the environment.
Winner: My hobby
Different people have different hobbies. There are many hobbies. Some
of them are reading, gardening, painting, collecting stamps, playing
etc. In my leisure time I always read story books and newspapers. I have
chosen reading as my hobby. I like to read newspapers in English. My
father buys the Junior Observer, Daily News and Funday Times. Mostly I
like to read the Junior Observer. I read the Junior Observer to improve
my knowledge. Reading the Junior Observer has many advantages.
In the Junior Observer I always read poems and essays. I like the
Ritzbury competition and kids news. The science page is very useful for
my studies. I enjoy reading the poems. I always attempt Sudoku. Reading
is a good hobby and “Reading maketh a full man.” Therefore, all of us
must read books and newspapers and improve our knowledge. I love my
hobby very much.

Sports are essential to our lives. It is very useful to our physical
and mental health. Mostly children like to engage in sports. There are
two types of sports such as indoor and outdoor. Chess,carom and table
tennis are some examples for indoor games. Cricket, football and rugby
are some games which are considered outdoor games.
But the pathetic situation is that most of the young generation
aren't interested in sports. They are addicted to many other things.
Sports develop unity, kindness, friendship, companionship, leadership
and faithfulness. Therefore we must try to engage in sports.
