Dear Grandpa and Grandma

Yesterday at my school was had International Day. We had performances, food stalls, displays, raffles ticket draw and some of us were dressed in customes.
We started our day off with performance but the one I liked best the one form fourth grade. It was about games. The performance I was in was called Labamba.
Straight after our performance we had our lunch. There were food stalls. They came from Australia, Asian, Arabic and Greece.

Every one had a job. These people were from six grade. I did my job after I had lunch. My job was to sell International Day Books.
We has displays in the hell. These displays were good but I didn’t get to see them. The displays came from a lot of countries.
There was also a trash and treasure stall where they sell toys. The school got these things by asking the children to bring in.
After lunch we had a raffle ticket draw. I didn’t win anything but a lot of people did.
Although I didn’t win anything, International Day was still fun.

The bomb, in the resort of Kuta, destroyed the Sari Club and a crowded nightspot. Many people have fallen victims to this blast. Many of them were foreign tourists, especially from Australia. They were burner beyond recognition. Some tourist who were at the scene of the blast said there were two explosions around the nightclub. One bomb had exploded outside Paddy’s Bar before a Bar bomb hit the Sari Club which was located some meters away.
Hundred were injured in the explosion and about 220 Australians remain unaccounted for. The U.K. Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, said that 33 Britons were among those killed in the Bali attack. The Australian Primer Minister, John Howard, called its borders, saying it had been a problem for a long time.
Lists of missing people have been posted in Bali and official said that it could take days to identity all the victims, some of whom were trapped in the Sari Club by a wall of flames. A notice board at the hospital in Bali includes a section called “Unknown Identity” and detailed list on victims such as : “Young girl in intensive care, 11-14 years old, face burned, income, Causation,” or “Girl in intensive care, about 5 years old, 130 cm, fair skin, Caucasian with reddish brown hair.

This morning with my hands full of bags, I went to the railway station to catch my train at 10:00.
I went there with a cab. To my surprise, when I just stepped my feet outside the cab, I could see a terrible beru huge crowd inside the railway station. As soon as I got myself into the crowd, I could smell millions of odor smells that were really horrible. I could not help myself to get rid of that because my hands were full with luggage. I just squeezed myself between two Chinese people and managed to pull myself out of the crowd onto the bridge to the railway station. I was luck as I have booked the ticked to Alor Seter. So I didn’t bother to queue up for a ticket.

On Children's Day in 1999, a technology company treated more than 200 underprivileged children to a 'high-tech' experience. They were given training on information technology.

The company wanted to provide opportunities for these children to learn more about the Internet and the latest technology. They wanted to help the less fortunate in the community.

The children had an enjoyable and educational experience that day. They were exposed to the new technology for the first time and they were very interested. The company hoped to conduct many more such training sessions for these children. They fell that the skills the children had would be useful to them when they grew up.

The company was very active in caring for the less fortunate. They even put aside one day a year for their employees to do volunteer work to help the needy. They also donated money to many charitable organisations.

Many people had benefited from their efforts. Many also praised the company for being so generous towards the needy.
