Last month our school marked her diamond jubilee with a double celebration: an inter house sports competition in the morning and football match later in the afternoon. The former was exciting as many -74- were broken and several new ones were set. The most exciting were the -75- events, especially the 100 metres -76-, the 200 metres hurdles and the -77- races. The -78- did not seem particularly interested in the -79-events.

Expectedly, the football match drew a very large crowd because of the reputation of the two contesting teams. The -80- was taken by the State Administrator who was the special -81-. Our team played excellent soccer; the -82- were accurate and our players displayed such -83- that the spectators were not surprised when, by the end of the -84- they had scored three goals to nil. In the second half, one of our players was shown a -85- for a rough -86-. Although our opponents were awarded a -87-, our -88- was so smart that he did not concede a goal.

The airport had a big tarmac and a wide -89- Departure time of our flight was announced and all the passengers -90- to -91- the plane. Soon the aircraft began to -92- for -93- and in a few moments, we were -94- in no time,we were lost in the -95-. A beautiful young -96- was meanwhile standing in the -97-, close to the cockpit demonstrating security -98- in the event of an emergency. All along, the engines of the plane -99- and provided a background of sinister -100-.
