Introduction

Year 10 English Writing Project. Task: Write descriptively about an artefact, place, activity, or journey with some reference or connection to the theme of 'Light'.

So, today what we need to do is to change the thinking of the people. The greatest source of strength is enthusiasm that comes from you. Success is not where you stand but the direction in which you look let your Guru guide you there and enlighten you with the beauty of life. ...read more.
