The road in front of my school is a narrow one. It is also very busy. Every afternoon
when school is dismissed the road becomes almost impassable as children, bicycles, cars
and buses jostle and struggle to use it. Sometimes a policeman is there to help things out,
but generally chaos reigns and we have to be careful not to get involved in an accident. A
few accidents had already occurred. I was a witness to one.
It happened just after school. As usual the road was an utter mad house. Children were
running across the road to get to their cars and buses. Cars and buses honked angrily at
them. Just then I saw a young boy make a dash across the road. There was a loud blare of
horn, a squeal of brakes and I saw a car knock into the boy. He fell as though his feet were
swept from under him. Fortunately the car was not moving very fast and the driver managed
to stop the car before a wheel could run over the fallen boy.
All traffic stopped. I ran over to the boy and saw blood on the road. He was bleeding
from a cut on his head. A man came and examined the boy. Then he lifted the boy and

carried him to a car. They sped off, presumably to the hospital. Many people surrounded
the driver who looked dazed and bewildered. A policeman came to calm things down.
As there was nothing I could do, I turned and walked down the road carefully. It was
terrible to witness an accident. I certainly would not like to be involved in one.

Sometimes during their orbits, the moon and the Earth form a line with the Sun. When this
happens, an eclipse occurs.
There are two kinds of eclipse - lunar and solar. A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves
between the Sun and the moon, blocking part of the Sun's light from reaching the moon. During a lunar
eclipse, you will see the Earth's shadow on the moon.
In a solar eclipse, the moon moves between the Earth and the Sun. When this happens, part of
the Sun's light is blocked. The sky slowly gets dark as the moon moves in front of the Sun. When the
moon and Sun are in a perfect line, it is called a total eclipse. These are very rare. Most people only see
one in their lifetime.

The king cobra is the largest venomous snake in the world. It has special muscles and ribs in
its neck that spread out to form a "hood" when the cobra feels threatened. This makes the snake look
bigger than it really is, and may help scare away predators.
King cobras make a deep, loud hissing sound. Like the rattle of the rattlesnake, the hiss is a
warning signal that can be heard from a distance. The message is: "I am big, bad, and will bite you if
you come any closer!"
Most cobras are known to protect their eggs after laying them, but the female king cobra does
even more. She uses her body and head to move leaves around to build a nest. After she lays her eggs,
she covers them with more leaves, and stays on top of the nest until the eggs hatch.

It was a bright Sunday morning on 22 April 2014 when 20 members of the


Social Society set out by school bus to Taman Cheras for a good cause: to visit the
orphans in RumahSayang. The Teacher-Advisors who accompanied these caring
students were Jenny Ling and John Khoo.
The school bus arrived at the venue at about 10 a.m. The Matron, Mrs. Edwards,
was there to welcome us. The orphans had lined up in the hall waiting for us. The
welcome we received from them was very warm and touching.
We started off with an ice-breaking session. Then, we taught them how to make
paper cranes which were stuffed into a lovely glass bottle. It was a lot of fun especially
towards the end. As for performances, we witnessed one the orphans, June, dancing to
a hip-hop song and 7-year-old Barry sang a Japanese song.
The children were really adorable. There was a little boy named Rick, who stuck
to June and liked sitting on her lap. There were other volunteers there on that day too.
There was one group of people who gave them haircuts. Another group of volunteers
gave them tuition lessons.
