A Visit to Kampung Sentosa
I visited Kampung Sentosa after the harvest season. We went there by bus.
Fortunately, the village (1)organized an after harvest festival. There were many
events such as the buffalo race, kite-flying competition and culture show. We were
happy on that day because it was our first time to see the buffalo race.
There were many buffaloes lined up for the race. I stood along the track. The
buffaloes were (2)decorated beautifully and each of them was given a number. The
competitors sat on the buffaloes. Each of them was holding a stick to hit the animals
so that they would run fast. The race was (3)started with a loud air honk. We
cheered for Pak Ali who rode on number nine buffalo. The animals ran as fast as
lighting when hit. We took pictures for remembrance. Everyone cheered and clapped
to support the racers. In the end, Pak Ali was (4)announced the winner and received
a big hamper for the prize. We congratulated Pak Ali for his victory.
Then we moved to the beach to watch the kite-flying competition. The sea
breeze was cooling. Many (5)competitors came with their beautifully decorated
kites of shapes and sizes. I bought a kite and entered the competition. Then, the
contest started. The sky was full of colouful kites. The competitors were busy
controlling the string of their kites. Most of them were elderly men who were experts

murals garden appreciate Mini Zoo scattered
rubbish bins faded Beautification empty colourful

There are many ways to beautify our school. Firstly, the rubbish
bins. We can paint them with bright colours. Students must throw rubbish in the
bin so that the rubbish will not be scattered all over. The school will place the
dustbins at strategic places such as the canteen, the corridors and the laboratory.

You must also empty the dustbins at the back of your classes when they are full.

I hope you will cooperate with us to make this school Beautification Campaign a
success. Thank you for lending me your ears.
Secondly, the Science Garden needs a fresher look. We can plant colourful
flowers to make the school beautiful. Each society will be given a garden . We are
going to have a competition for the most beautiful garden and there will be lots of
attractive prizes to be won.
Next, we will paint the old buildings. The colours are already faded and this
makes the buildings look dull. We will also paint the benches around the school.
Moreover, murals will be painted on the walls.
Good morning to the Principal, teachers and friends. Our school is organizing a
School Beautification Campaign. As the head prefect of the school, I would like to
talk on how to make the school more beautiful.
Lastly, we will set up a Mini Zoo . This is to make students appreciate nature and
care for animals. Besides that, we can decorate our classrooms. You can put on
curtains, beautiful posters and other things to make your class look beautiful.
