Where would we be without our friends?

Candy is my best friend. To other people, she can seem a bit stingy with food, but she treats me very well!

She sometimes buys my favourite snacks. Then I’ll return the favour.

We have a really excellent friendship, because we both trust each other completely.

This kind of mutual support is really important.

I really cherish our relationship!

Best friends now and forever

My best friend is Enoch. He inspires me to do lots of things, like helping others.

He helps me during lessons and breaks, and it makes me want to help others. So I help students in lower grades with their schoolwork.

We like talking to each other, and every time we do, we have a great conversation.

When I have tasks to do in groups, I always choose Enoch. He is a very reliable friend who helps me through lots of difficulties.

Enoch can draw and design things. He also plays musical instruments like the piano, and honestly, his musical skills are better than most of the students in my class.

My best friend is Dorothy. I met her in primary school. She has shoulder-length hair and she usually keeps it up in a ponytail. I think she looks adorable like that!

She is the most cheerful person I have ever met, because she is always smiling and telling jokes to her classmates.

She is also a very kind and polite person. She always thinks how your words and actions can affect other people’s feelings.

I appreciate how thoughtful she is, and I’m glad to have her as my best friend.

Thanks for having my back, friend

I have many good friends, but my favourite is Yoyo. She’s a fun-loving girl who’ll laugh at anything.

She is very good at taking care of people. She never leaves her friends alone.

If someone in the group is upset about something, she will try to help them. She is a really good friend.

Hayden is my best friend. We got to know each other in Form Two, and we have been friends for two years now.

He can run really fast so he has been asked to join the school’s track and field team.

We both like to help each other when facing challenges, especially with our studies. For example, we always work together during group projects because we are good team and we can have a good time at the same time.

I hope our friendship will last forever!
