Shhhhhhhhh ! 'SILENCE EXAM IS ON' .................................
May i have your attention please ..............
The giraffes, the Indian -kohl, kingfishers, rabbits, elephants, ants, the monkeys, the woodywoodpeckers, the butterflies and all present and absent yesterday and long before the exams were arranged are coming for the forth coming exam scheduled on 23rd i heard from the dept. of 'beautiful peacock', section of already prepared papers
and the exams will be held in AMPARA please clear the road for our buddies to come for the exams without any issues and i know all these above mentioned students live not only in the Eastern part of the country but also in the other parts of the land therefore i like to request on behalf my friends ( above mentioned) Sir, Officer In Charge of department of good 'polite'- birds ( gira batithi malithi + all ) and the leader of provincial and district secretary to all the departments of swans and rabbits and birdies of all colours, and i heard that ( the kichi bichi has sent me a message this morning) saying that you are having a very big popular event called 'deyata kirula' in the area you live and we like to come and i like to congratulate you and wish you all the very good luck for the big event i am sure all the students of open space will join you after their exams with their families.
And after facing the exams let them learn more good things from the big event.
following is not a module please do not be mistaken. :)
Exams are of different types and attached to each type there are certain rules some are based on activities, some are oral and most of them are written ones.
There is a Beli tree little far a way from our window site of our very private J room area. There is an exam going on there this morning ( the day that i started writing this note - and now it is 41 minutes past six in the evening ) and I have noticed such exams are going on most of the mornings in the zone of 'silence'.
I do not understand their answering or questioning language. The language of course I know I can even name it it is called ‘ the kichi bichi language’ they are expected to show every possible talents and skills to the examiners/marking examiners also to their masters plus master teachers :) actually they are activity based ones.
hey friends show your talents OK ' learning is one thing and teaching another thing. different to each other. do not forget ok.
Some had to show their talents just standing steadily on one broken weak leaf – coconut I noticed. Most of the examiners were sitting comfortably ( little bit sweating) on a little kohomba branch just before the Beli Tree the main examination hall premises.
Ah before i forget Godaya who had come to Colombo taught me that 'the English tern for 'kottamba tree is wild almond' ( Thank you) how do you know English sir interesting to know Godayas can write good English. kichi bichi think that kottamba tree is her own property she jump from this branch to that branch keeping the eaten part of the wild almond for us to feel jealous.
Some of them had to show they were studied in the ‘ Finishing school – department’ good way the parrots had to show ‘ how to eat mangoes without spilling all over or without wasting a single piece of them. I noticed ( NO I am not the master teacher) that some of them have not followed the course well showed no good in eating patterns. They just used almost every mango did not think of finishing one at a time strategy. I do not think that their master teacher would give them full marks for that activity. Will get about not even half of the total marks ( 100 = total marks)
They had given a particular time to start and complete the activity assigned by the course designer that is 30 minutes for each activity.
Some were asked to stand on a top of a leaf the aratuwa area balancing their whole body and it is alright they swing their body but I am not sure whether they get any extra marks for such extra work or shown and NO NO the examiners will not cut any marks though they show extra abilities not following the questions accurately. They were not told to use extra abilities but were only asked to stand firm on a leaf – Puwak. Puwak is one of the sub examination halls close to main hall – examination.
Few of the questions asked are
- ‘show how high you can fly’ ? ( from all the kichi bichi 's of all colours and all paramparas, castes and classes)
- ' How to fly using your fullest abilities but only limiting to 800 yard boundary no one was asked to exceed the limit given ( 800 yards) and the starting point was marked that was the old coconut tree.
- Show how many maximum hours that one can stay 'quite' without drinking plane or plain tea with any pol ( coconut) cake Ohhhhh not even with any kiri ( milk) toffees or juggery of your choice without making any kichi bichi sounds for any reason.
( Shhhhhhh ! 'silence exam on'
Show how accurate you can feed your ill or not well friends when ever they have ‘fever’ or cold or something similar ( remember your friends are not at their own homes but are at their hostel with you away from their parents have come to study with friends for the forth coming examination starting from 23rd this month)
ants ( all princesses and prince's) wanted me to convey a message for giving them a chance to learn how ' be good all the moments of learning' and 'be with children, understand their behaviours, listen to them whenever possible not only during the interval of the primary and pre school called ' always good' & ' teachers are kind'.
so all the best buddies for the forth coming exams have you submitted all the assignments
Oh before i forget THANK YOU dear handling parties of 'sharing kind heart thoughts on walls of open space'
i like to dedicate this little note for you 'encouraging buddies'
get well soon friend please convey the message.
