It was a bright Saturday morning. The school holidays had just begun and my form teacher, Mrs. Zhang, had promised to bring the whole class on an excursion to the Botanic Garden.
A bus was chartered to take us there. We assembled at school punctually and Mrs. Zhang did a head count before we boarded the bus. It was a long way to Botanic Garden and we sang songs merrily on the way.
Soon, we reached our destination. It was a beautiful place. We made a short tour round the garden and snapped some pictures of the whole class. We then found a spacious piece of grassland and played some games there. Even Mrs. Zhang joined in the fun.
When it was one o’clock, we unpacked the food we brought and tucked into the noodles, sandwiches, fruits and barley drink.
In the afternoon, we went to listen to a choral performance by the National Junior College choir at the garden. They sang very well.
All too soon, it was time to leave. However, we cheered when Mrs. Zhang promised to bring us on another excursion during the December holidays.”
