RED INDIAN SAYINGS






Our land is everything to us...I will tell you one of the things we remember on our land. We remember that our grandfathers paid for it - with their lives."

Certain things catch your eye, But pursue only those that capture your heart.
~ An old indian saying


Parrots have a wide range of articulations. Wild parrots do not imitate. Only pets will mimic people and noises they hear. The African gray parrots are the best mimics.
Parrots have a direct, strong flight. Most species are perched or climbing tree canopies when not flying. Parrots use their bills for climbing. They grip the branches or other supports with their beaks. Parrots frequently walk with a rolling gait on the ground.

Penguins

Penguins: "Here are some cute, little, waddling penguins for your homepage."

Hamster

Hamster: "This lively pet hamster will keep you company throughout the day. Watch him run on his wheel, drink water, and eat the food you feed him by clicking your mouse. Click the center of the wheel to make him get back on it."

ENGLISH LANGUAGE MOTIVATIONAL PROGRAMME PRA UPSR 2009



Think Big

Come on – I’m challenging you to start thinking BIG from this day on. Ya see – we’re programmed to think that change takes a lot of time. Don’t say, “I’m going to start trying to be a little better” Say, “Starting today – I’M THE BEST! I’m going to be the best at everything I do.” Do you look around at friends and say things like, “I wish I could be as confident as him” - “I wish I could be as successful as her” - “I wish I was as outgoing as him”. Stop the wishing! Stop! You decide today that you are all these things. You decide today that these things aren’t a choice. You decide today that you’re going to do everything possible to make it happen!

Sunflower

Sunflower, sunflower, standing straight and tall,
Sunflower, sunflower, you're the tallest flower of them all!
Sunflower, sunflower, when your seeds fall to the ground,
Sunflower, sunflower, by the squirrels they'll be found!




ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT'S NOTICE BOARD

NATIONAL DAY


A PIECE OF PAPER

I took a piece of paper

It was white…..

White – reflecting the purity

Deep within our hearts,

The heart of each and every Malaysian

In one corner, I drew a rectangle

And then, I coloured it blue

Cause blue symbolises dignity

And it was with dignity that Malaysia broke away

From the clutches of colonialism

Next, in the rectangle, I included a new moon

A crescent representing the National religion, Islam

And also to signify light and hope

Light for all Malaysians, whatever colour or creed

Hope that peace and harmony may forever prevail.

Beside the crescent is a star

A star with fourteen points

Representing the different states, their people

Converging in the middle

Reflecting the bond, the unity in our nation

The crescent and the star are coloured yellow

Yellow – the colour of royalty

Pledging my unfailing loyalty to King and country

The symbol of the sovereignty

of this my homeland, the land that I live in and love

Finally, I added the horizontal stripes

Again, fourteen – for the fourteen states

I painted seven of them red

And left the other seven white

Different, divergent but united we stand,

side by side.

Red is the colour of love

The love I have for my country

The love I have for my fellowmen

Together let us stand hand in hand

United and strong, as one people, one nation,

one Malaysia.

Feelings

As I wake by your side,
My feelings for you I can not hide,
I touch your face in the morning light,
Being with you just feels so right

You make me feel like I'm a queen,
Like being inside an awesome dream,
Although this is real, that I know,
As the love that surrounds us continues to grow

I think of what the future holds...
Marriage, children, us growing old,
And as I lay, with you dear,
I'm just so glad you're mine, you're here.

- Jo Pye -

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT'S EXHIBITION



PUPPET SHOW

poems

Of all the names in the world,
why did you have to call me that?
Recall the tale of a boy named Sue,
well now you done it to your cat.

I can understand when we first met,
I was little and pretty with lots of hair.
You thought, "Ah yes, we'll call him Fluffy."
But can't you see that wasn't fair?


Now I've grown into a big tough tom,
you see it doesn't suit me much.
I'm the laughing stock of the alleys,
you know you should have called me Butch.

I know I'm not the only one
had this burden on them fall.
So please remember when you choose...
We don't all stay fluffy, cute and small!
