STUDENTS' WORKS

A collection of compositions, poems and other works by TWC Students

As quickly as I could, I donned my trusty helmet and fireproof suit. I descended the fire engine and darted towards the bushfire. My comrades and I had been called to put out a sudden bushfire that had erupted along the west of the Gondwana rainforest. 

Upon arriving at the forest, I gaped in horror at the sight before me. Voluminous orange flames were devouring the trees, and dark smoke billo...

Staring enviously at my sister’s new puffy dress, I whined, “Why do you always get the best stuff?” “Too bad!” My older sister, Justine, retorted, sticking her tongue out at me. I raised my clenched fist in midair and gritted my teeth. An evil idea suddenly flashed through my head. I chuckled maliciously and stormed off to my room.

Plonking myself heavily onto my chair, I yanked open my drawer...

Licking my newly bought ice cream, I trudged back home from school, holding my change in the other hand. The sun was scorching hot, beating down on my body furiously. A cacophony of city sounds — people passing by, cars honking, the temple bells ringing — it was all very busy. Some stalls were brightly lit with their lanterns, lamps and hanging bulbs despite the time of day, attracting lots o...

"Help! Help! Someone get my daughter out now!" A woman with a veil of ebony hair shadowing her pale face screamed hysterically, waving her arms in the air wildly. Screams of fear reverberated in the air as hordes of people hastily escaped the building that was engulfed in fire. Gazing at the fierce blaze around me, I felt that the fire hose in my hands had become limp and useless. I had to do...

On the fifth of May, I went to Sydney, Australia. Sydney's weather sometimes went from scorching hot to freezing cold.

At Featherdale Wildlife Park, my uncle got attacked by a flock of seagulls. Immediately after the attack, the seagulls started laughing at him. The best part was that this was all caught on camera! Hahaha! That’s what I call a hilarious and embarrassing sight.

On another occasi...

Leaving beads of sweat on the ground in my wake, I sprinted around the dirty field. It was the second half of our match against Banyan Primary School, and the score was tied at three to three. My team had been training relentlessly day and night to beat Banyan Primary School and win the finals of the inter-school tournament. Everything came down to this match. I had a burning desire to beat t...

“I love our sandcastle,” I squealed in delight. Last Monday afternoon, my friends, Jane, Mary and I were at the playground building a sandcastle in the sandpit. The sandcastle was as tall as a giraffe. I clapped my hands in glee at the sight of the magnificent sandcastle.

A few minutes later, two mean bullies arrived and stomped on the sandcastle. The two bullies chuckled like hyenas. Angrily,...

“Snowy! Where are you?” I bellowed with mounting anxiety. It had already been a week since my faithful companion, my dog Snowy, disappeared into thin air. When I woke up that fateful morning, the door was open and Snowy had disappeared. I slumped down on a wooden bench, heaving a sigh of resignation. My heart ached at the thought of Snowy. All of my good memories with the canine flashed befor...

Smiling faces surrounded me as I strolled around my backyard, greeting friends and relatives. It was the annual family barbeque that day. My cousins were rambling on and on about their trips to Japan. Pungent smoke was billowing from the barbeque pit as my father arranged the first skewers of chicken wings in the grill. I had always treasured the family barbeque party, as it was a special tim...

“Chirp! Chirp!” the birds were tweeting merrily as the sun rose from the East. Warm sunlight shone on my face as I woke up. Just then, I remembered that it was my birthday! I rushed downstairs to the living room and found a big pile of presents stacked in a corner! “Mom! Dad! Can I open my presents now?”, I asked. ”Sure!” Mom replied. I tore open the wrapping paper and saw a black bicycle! It...

“I can’t wait to show off my cool moves!” Dax hollered. Last December holidays, Dax and his family went skiing at Mount Fuji. Dax adjusted his ski straps. He then propelled himself forward to ski down the slope. His heart thumped very hard like a drum.

Soon, he sped down the slope. He zoomed on the slushy snow. Biting cold wind grazed his face. Adrenaline rushed through as he sped down the slo...

“Pass me the ball!” I shrieked to my sister, Adele. Our parents were at the shopping centre buying supplies for Chinese New Year. We were at home alone, and I had the responsibility of taking care of my sister.


Bored to tears, we tossed a ball to each other in the living room. “Even further?” I asked. The ball soared over my sister’s head. Crash! Mother’s priceless glass sculpture shattered i...
