Reesha Resham Ganglani, P2

My dear amazing iPad, The sight of you makes me glad. In a beautiful case you are clad, But your empty battery makes me sad.

Watching videos on YouTube, Or home-based learning for school,

There’s so much we do together,

Especially the new game which is so cool.

I wish to meet you every day,

But homework must be done,

So I look forward to the holiday,

To spend time together as one.

- Best in Upper Primary -

Technology is amazing, It’s advancing the world. But it is ruling over us, And causes our lives to swirl.

A smartphone can guide you, With information and more. But in hard times it’s a friend, That will give you a shoulder for sure.

The technology will advance

And gadgets will change. But it’s your family and friends

That always remain.

We are drowning in our gadgets And lost all within. The Real World is the people around,

Not the gadgets therein.

Technology is an addition today

Of this tech receiver. In simple it’s termed As Technology Fever.

- Honourable Mentions -


Keagan Tan Guan Yan, P4

Thank goodness there is technology. Everyone needs the computer and phones.

Critical Ops is the game I love. How have we lived without technology? No one knows the answer. Our technology is so expensive but yet so good,

Laying endless possibilities. Our lives are filled with technology. Googling is the way to go. Yippee for technology, that helps us daily.


Matthew Gim Kai Sheng, P3

The clock strikes six, my playtime is here, I get to see my iPad dear. The work is forgotten. My fingers trail the sleek and smooth surface,

Oh so much joy!

Tap, tap, tap. My boredom relieved. Games and videos, my favourite things.

I wish I can play more, Alas no! iPad my companion... What can I do without you?


Poh Yi Xuan Eunice, P2

When my parents are travelling My heart feels like something is missing.

Technology is mankind’s blessing,

WhatsApp being part of our lives, It keeps us always connected Though we are miles apart. Technology is indeed something we can’t do without.


Nurul Jannah Binte Norul Anuar, P2

A machine that rests on your lap, Close it and away we go. To see the words you have to tap, tap, tap.

Can’t live without it, This much I know.


Ho Jun Heng Jayden, P5

Technology is loved by all, who doesn’t love it? Eliminate every other thing, soon there will be only technology!

Cool stuff, it’s awesome! Handphone and tablets are examples. Not like humans, technology can live for a long time. Oh I forgot computers! Look at people, what do they use these days, technology!

Options, there are many, like it or not, technology will rule!

Google, Firefox, Internet Explorer, information online: You must not miss out!


Tanay Ramachandruni, P6

Technology is the prevalence of the generation

Despite the age partition.

Technology may make the world a better place

I’ll tell you, if you can keep up pace.

At first we were amazed by a simple light

Then followed by an advanced space shuttle taking off in the night.

We look at places from across the world

without a peek into a book, filled with pictures painting words

But only with a sneak at technology, so absurd!

On the other side of the coin, it is a ruse

Whatever we do, technology makes a bruise

It runs our lives until we bereave

from the alarm on our phone to the evening TV

Just count our aboriginal’s gibe

Our patience has all gone grey

This has become the way

Reminiscing and rewinding our lives has all gone astray

Man has been gifted with a great shine

Although they never assumed it would be their demise

It seems man’s intelligence has begun to backtrack

Similar to being subdued in a flashback

Of how they did it 100 years ago

Technology is a devil in disguise

And it is only up to us to be wise

There is still a chance for us to turn our lives around

And until it is too late, let us make a rebound!


Lovelle Nah Xin Yu, P5

Give me back my calendar,

Give me back my mirror,

Give me back my DVD,

Give me back my book.

Give me back my parents,

Give me back my cousins,

Give me back my aunts and uncles,

Give me back my friends.

Give me back my perfect eyesight,

Give me back my focus,

Give me back my health,

Give me back my life.

Give me back, give me back, I would give up my phone.


Ang Jun Ray, P6

A virtual escape,

Misused by many others;

A vicarious trap.


Anaqi Shurahbeel Bin Iskandar, P5

Playing video games is immersing myself into virtual reality;

It is the sound of explosions of grenades in the background.

Video games is the smell of gasoline and death in war,

And also the fear of my enemies.

Playing video games is the taste of dried bread for breakfast in the bunker.

It is also the taste of salty sweat dripping down my forehead,

As I curl my finger around the trigger.

Playing video games is the exhilaration of vanquishing my nemesis.


Kate Lui, P3

Technology is powerful.

Technology is helpful.

But technology can be harmful.

So I should be careful.

Technology is remarkable.

Technology makes our dreams possible.

But technology can be uncontrollable.

So I should be responsible.

Technology is cool.

Technology can help me in school.

But bad people use it as a tool.

So always be vigilant, that’s the rule.


Markus Unger-Xiao Junwei, P5

Ding! You got mail.

Time for some originality, technology is sending more people to psychology.

Sincerity becomes a thing of the past, as you get more emojis than honesty.

Everything seems to move like lightning; just simply let your fingers do the walking.

Technology is invading and there is no escaping.

No matter when or where, people bow for hours to their new device in their hand.

Children hanging on to their dear handheld device; when they can barely count to five.

Taxi uncles swear on the GPS by miles, and others have more friends on Facebook than outside the house.

As for me, they are devils in disguise.

My handheld device is like my next best thing in my life!


Jadyn Ng, P2

Like me, my friend likes to sing songs

And entertain people all day long.

She plays games with everyone

While helping them get work done.

She can suggest an idea or two,

And plan for vacations too.

My friend is almost perfect.

She is my entertainer

And favourite computer.


Chen Han Yu, P4

If I could build a robot,

I would make it to help us

With our studies!

With a smart brain, with a kind voice!

If I could build a robot,

I would make it to help us carry our things!

With strong arms,

With a good heart,

Always helping out for

An easier life!

If I could build a robot,

I would make it into

An aircraft! To fly over

The entire world and

Visit the seven wonders!

If I could build a robot,

I would like it to get

Rid of the evil.

Yes, bad but with a good

And brave heart.

Then it would become

A nice earth!

Now, the only thing we need is robots,

To make our life merrier!


Fania Tee, P3

It’s making life easy,

Like a smartphone,

So I don’t feel alone.

I can see my friends,

In the palm of my hand.


Wayne Lim, P6

My grandpa used to talk

About the old times,

When people swam in the open sea

And children played in the sun.

I said, “Phut!

Life changes!”

And went back

To playing




Yuki Chan Le Xuan, P3

From iPad to iPhone,

They bring fun to our lives.

We use them to play games and communicate,

Which makes us feel alive.

People from all over the world use them.

If no one invented them, our lives won’t feel right.


Ong Gynn Han, P5

If a genie gave me one wish, 

I would want to build a robot.

Maybe it’s kind of a Baymax or

Maybe it’s a Bumblebee.

I’ll build it big and burly.

I’d make it save the world,

And heal the hearts of people

Who have lost their hopes.

It’ll be riding a magical hoverboard,

Floating above all of us.

Holding an iPhone that converts into a computer,

For everyone to use!

When it is not in use,

It’ll become invisible

And become a non-matter.

It’ll conserve the world’s precious energy

So that there will be no global warming.

I wish my dream could come true.

I could teleport to Minecraft and build whatever I want.

My dream seems too good to be true.

But maybe it will come true,

In a few years…...


Jayden Seojin Lee, P5

If I could build a robot,

I would let it make trash rot.

I would like it to massage me

Like the way people do.

I would play video games:

With it I can beat records.

I could let it fix my phone,

My PC, and XBOX cords.

I would stop it from rusting.

It can help me clean my house.

It can kill pests, such as ants,

And help me feed my mouse.

I like this robot since it can help me,

And he will be my lifelong buddy.


Stephanie Lim Jia Jun, P2
