Students show their acting talent

The 2009 Inter-House Drama Competition was a great success. It was organised to celebrate our school's 43rd anniversary.

The actors, teachers, guests, the students as well as their parents enjoyed the performance.

Each of the four houses presented an English drama. This was not an easy task since English is not our mother tongue.

We have to thank some of our former graduates for helping with the productions.

They, along with the house captains, trained the actors in correct pronunciation and intonation.

The audience greeted the students' efforts with loud applause.

There were question-and-answer sessions after each performance and members of the audience actively participated in the discussions.

The three adjudicators praised the performers. One of the outstanding actresses was actually a male who played the role of Snow White.

I was the master of ceremonies and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

To be honest, I was very nervous before the show. And when the prize presenters were changed, I panicked a little. But, overall, I think I did a good job.

I hope I will get the chance to become an MC again.

Hard work the key to success

Some teenagers wish they had more skills in order to become more successful. Do they ever realise that they can enhance their capabilities?

They should read more books and pay more attention to their studies.

They should work hard to overcome their shortcomings.

There is a wide gap between expectation and reality. If they want to make their dreams come true, teenagers should work towards their targets and try their best to achieve those goals.

Remember, even if you are not born with a talent, you can make the grade through determination and perseverance.

A job well done

There is no doubt that different people have different abilities. But they have to co-operate to succeed at work.

Otherwise, it will be a waste of money and resources.

Humans have to treat teamwork as the most important part of their lives. If we can work well together with others, everybody will benefit.

Eventful weekend

I took part in a Famine 30 event for the first time last month. I had to fast for 30 hours over a weekend.

It was happy that I joined the campaign. You can't gain this kind of experience from books.

I could not take any solid food for 30 hours - I mostly drank soya milk during the activity. The empty stomach made me feel uncomfortable. Now I feel so sorry about people who have nothing to eat for days.

I attended workshops which gave me a better understanding of the developing world. Also, some people who went to Nepal shared their experiences with us.

I learned a lot from the event.
