During the novenas in the Saligao church, each ward had to do a play and cook food. So our ward in Saligao, Sonarbhat, did a dance. The dance is called 'rise up'. We had got a special teacher who teaches dance. His name is Sneidon. He taught us very well. At first I could not get it at all, but afterwards I knew it very well.
Now again, for August 14, we are doing the same dance in the Club (the Saligao Institute). It is for the feast of the chapel called St Cajetan's.
My exams started on the first of August. We have eight subjects. They are: English I & II, Hindi and Konkani, History and Geography, Science and Maths.
Science is a very nice subject, I enjoy Science very much.
We have completed three lessons in this term. We have to study four more for the coming exam, soon.
My Science teacher's name is Miss Sophina. She used to teach in St Xavier's College, but now she has come to our school. She is thin and tall, and teaches very well.
I like English too, because we learn nice lessons. Our English book is also very colourful and there are nice stories.
This lesson that we are learning these days is Robinson Crusoe.
My English teacher's name is Sister Flory. She speaks English very well, and also teaches us grammar. Grammar is sometimes a l-i-t-t-l-e hard, when I have to underline the pronouns. But English and Science are my best subjects.
I also like Maths, but I find it a little hard, with the division sums. Konkani is nice; I know how to speak well, but it's hard to pick up the answers. Hindi is an easy subject and very nice. The language is very nice too. History and Geography are nice subjects. In Geography, we learnt about political divisions in Goa. In History, we learnt about Sunita in space. Sir Vijay teaches us History and Geography. He also is our class teacher.
During our exams, different children from Std VI, VII, VIII, IX and X, come to sit in our class. So that can't copy from each other. They don't let us cover our exam sheets, so that we are fair while answering our exams. Our school leaves early at 11 am, and they give us time to study, so it becomes easier for us.
Yesterday was my brother's birthday. Yesterday my brother became five years old. All our friends came for the party. Because the Olympics were going on, we had to make a Chinese dragon. First we had to take a chart paper, then we made a plait out of two different coloured papers (like orange and yellow) ... Then, we pasted the plait on the dragon's head. We attached the broomsticks, and made the Chinese dragon.
We also played another game. We took a coin, placed it on our nose, and tried to keep it on our nose without falling down.
