Your Latter was delivered to me yesterday when I returned from school. I was very happy when I saw it because I know I would have hear from you since I
left the Village to Lagos. How are you now? I hope you are doing fine with your studies.
In your letter, you requested from me to furnish you with information about my school to enable you decide on moving over to my school. Somehow,here are what we are enjoying in my school here in Lagos.
Firstly, the environment of my school is conducive for learning for it is so quiet and adorned by flowers all over the well catered lawns making the beautiful painted proto-type building stand out.
Besides, there is a well equipped laboratory where the different Science i.e PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY PRACTICALS can be taken with each student having his or her own cubicle.
Another notable facility in my school that distinguishes it from yours has to do with the ever – cool computer room where we are taught computer studies. In fact, I can now use computer and chat or surf, due to my email address. My E-mail address is KELLYCHI@ gmail.com
Whatever you might be thinking, I am assuring you that if finally you decide to come to my school, I shall be helping you to meet up with the use of computer.
Greet your friends over there for me. How is your sister Comfort? I hope she is doing well in her studies. Till I hear from you, I say bye – bye for now

A story with the theme “pride goes before a fall” Mary Lee seemed to have everything. She was very beautiful with a neat trim figure and an attractive face. She was very rich. Her clothes were better than anyone else’s and she had more of them. Her books were always new and expensive as were her pens, school bags and bicycle. She was very clever too and without appearing to do very much work, she was always first in all the examinations and always answered all the questions, while the ret of the class were still thinking. With all this, or really because of all this, no one liked Mary Lee. She was too good, too clever and she was also very proud. No one was quite good enough to talk to her or to be seen with her or to be her friend. And so, with all her proud ways and riches and brains, she was lonely but she did not care because she was always best in everything. As the end of term drew near, the pupils including Mary Lee began to think about the most important prize of all. this was the prize, offered by the principal, for the best essay to be written on one of two subjects. “I needn’t worry about that,” thought Mary Lee, as the others began to read and to think about the essay. “I shall easily win; after all, my compositions are always better than the rest.” ‘Pride goes before a fall,’ they say and it certainly did in the case of poor Mary Lee. ‘Happiness’ and ‘Friendship’ were the two subjects for the essay and Mary Lee knew little about either. As she scratched her head for ideas and scribbled with her pen, she realized that she hadn’t any friends to speak of and that she was very far from being happy. She had no idea and so, she did not win the prize. Ah Chu wrote the best essay and the pupils were pleased, because he had never really excelled in anything before. He won lesson. She felt so silly because all her money and her cleverness seemed nothing compared with not wining the prize. “I mustn’t be too proud or too sure,” she thought, “the fall is very hard, if you have been too arrogant. ” She became a much pleasant person after that and her fellow pupils became her friends. She still won many prizes, but she never forgot the valuable lesson that the one prize she lost had taught her.
