SAMPLE ANSWER:

Good morning teachers and fellow students. I am standing here on this …………
day to talk about bully cases which are rampant in schools nationwide. I do hope you sit back,
relax and listen to my two cents on................bully cases in school.

It is inevitable that every school should install security cameras in strategic sites
around the school’s ....................... For instance, the school, authorities can install CCTV Security
Surveillance cameras in school parking lots, classrooms and laboratories as well as in highly visible
places so as to hinder physical bullying in the school’s premises.

Furthermore, all school should make strict anti-bullying policies. In truth,
students who .................. in bullying others repeatedly should be suspended from school or in very
serious cases, students who bully other kids ought to be expelled from school. Other than that,
teachers as well as parents ought to teach children moral and religious values. These values can
be taught through Education, Moral Education and Religious Education that are included in the
Curriculum. All these subjects will help students learn to be more well-behaved.

Indubitably, educators should endeavour to pay attention to signs of bullying in
the perimeter of the school. By way of illustration, teachers should closely monitor the kids’ facial
expression and body language to see if there is any sign of trepidation and the like. They should
also look out for physical signs such as bruises, black eyes and bloody ……………

Other than that, students should avoid being alone. They should always go about with their
friends or classmates. Spending time alone in the school playground would, inadvertently, cause
the students to fall victim to hardcore ...................... Besides, the students who fall prey to these
oppressors ought to have the mettle to report it to the disciplinary teachers so that those odious
actions would not recur. In brief, victims and ..........................should report bullying.

Well, we have come to the end of my speech for today. I do fervently pray that some
…………… or other be taken by the school authorities in order to curb bullying. For instance, the
school management could mete out fines to these offenders. .................everyone for lending me
your ears.

How to Combat Covid-19
By: Mariam Salleh

It is an undeniable fact that Covid-19 is a (1) ………………. pandemic that has (2) ……….
the world since December 2019. Indeed, the virus that causes Covid-19 is said to have originated
from a wet market in (3) ..............China. As of now, innumerable deaths have been recorded and
scientists have emphasised the (4) ....................... of warding off this disease through a miscellany
of methods.

Undoubtedly, all countries (5) …………………should alter their government policies and
wield their power so as to ensure that this disease can be brought under control. The first thing
that these governments should do is to close the country to foreigners viz foreign workers,
immigrants and refugees. They can do this to put a halt to flights and travel via cruises.

Other than that, the ruling government of the countries around the world can implement
Movement Control Order or total (6) ……………. In Malaysia , our Movement Control Order started
on the 18th of March and will go on till December 2020 .On top of that, these governments should
ascertain that no exotic food or meat is sold in any of the wet markets .For instance, the odious
habit of poaching and trapping tigers, civet cats and other (7)…………… animals should be
hindered. Normally in Southeast Asia, meat and organs of these unfortunate animals are sold to
traditional medicine practitioners.

Without a doubt, all governments should take the initiative to employ more health workers
such as doctors, nurses, (8) ..................and the like. Besides that, more private clinics and medical
centres must be allowed to handle covid-19 cases as they have a melange of modern medical
paraphernalia compared to government hospitals. Plus, Malaysians returning to the country have
to (9) ................... themselves for a compulsory 14 days.

Furthermore, individuals too should play a part in putting a halt to this pandemic. They can
do this by washing their hands (10) ......................... as often as they can. On top of that, they can
rub sanitizer on their palms from time to time. This will help kill any kind of virus strains. Another
way to avoid being infected by Covid-19 is by consuming Vitamin C tablets. They can also eat (11)
……………. fruits such as limes, lemons and oranges that contain lots of Vitamin C. Throughout
these difficult months, people have been urged to practise social distancing. In short, they have to
stand at least a meter away from other individuals This will, unwittingly, curtail the spread of all
kind of infectious diseases including Covid-19.

EASY WRITING MODULE PPD MUAR 12

Indubitably, the mass media should play a prodigious role in ensuring that the number of
Covid-19 cases does not escalate. It is true that television and radio stations worldwide should
sponsor campaigns that delineate the precariousness of being infected by this (12) …………….
disease. The mass media , in brief , should help enlighten those illiterate folks in the rural areas
about the preponderant measures that ought to be taken to combat Covid-19.In the same vein ,
the mass media too can highlight the symptoms of Covid-19 via advertisements .By way of
illustration , RTM and TV3 in Malaysia can join hands to create commendable advertisement that’s
how they can stay safe from the ravages of Covid-19 . Last but not least, the Health Ministries in
all countries should impart accurate information to the people with regards to the number of deaths
to the number of positive cases and so forth. This ought to be done on a (13).................... basis.

In conclusion, everyone should take the trouble to fight this pandemic. In this way, you will
be able to be free from the ravages of Covid-19.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Gunung Lambak Hiking Trip
On 4 September 2020, 40 members of the Environment Club including 12 Fifth Formers
along with 5 proactive teacher advisors from the aforementioned club went on a ……... to the
mystical Gunung Lambak that is located in the district of Kluang, Johor. In truth, the participants
boarded a large bus to the place in question at dawn and arrived at their destination about 2 hours
later.

Incontrovertibly, the main aim of the trip was to develop the students’ .................. and
character. In other words , the school authorities planned the trip so that the students would learn
to be more self-reliant so that they would not trouble other people when they had to go on to varsity
or college .For instance , the trip had been planned so as to expose the participants to a melange
of hiking and mountain .............. skills. Moreover, they were also taught to fare for themselves by
developing courage and strength by conducting exercises and psychological counselling.

Without a shadow of doubt, the trip had been................. to train the students to cooperate and
work as a team. Ergo 3 weeks before they arrived at the foothills of Gunung Lambak, they were
divided into several groups and assigned variegated types of tasks as well as ................. during
weekend camps. On top of that, they were sent to the gym to lift dumbbells on a daily basis so as
to build their physical strength. This kind of physical fitness training helped them to prepare
themselves for the planned trip. The teacher advisors, on the other hand, prepared the necessary
hiking equipment namely inflated beds, sleeping bags, water bottles, compasses and the like.

It is true that the participants faced a number of challenges. In fact, they had to deal with
the foggy atmosphere found in the mist-covered mountain where visibility was a major problem.
Naturally, they were also overwhelmed by the steep and slippery ground with its dangerous ……….
plants as well as all manners of danger in the form of snakes, wild animals like wild boars and so
forth. Another danger was brought on by the slimy rocks and trails full of damp lichen that caused
many club members to fall.

EASY WRITING MODULE PPD MUAR 15

Nonetheless, the 845 metres hike up Gunung Lambak which took up a good 3 hours was
a blessing because when they arrived at the ……., they were able to breathe in the refreshing
scent of the ocean while beholding the........................ scenery below. After having their lunch of
steaming hot coffee and thick slices of buttered bread, they descended the mountain. Of course,
they arrived back at the foothills just before nightfall when they washed up before starting their
journey home. Finally, the teacher advisors gave out participation certificates to all the participants
before they travelled home in a huge tourist bus.

All in all, the club members had an....................... time. I do hope that the school authorities
will make an effort to plan other expeditions like this in the coming year.

Ali Bin Salleh, 10 APRIL 2020
20, Jambu Street,
84000 Muar.

District Education Officer,
JKR 247 Jalan Arab,
84000 Muar, Johor.

Dear Sir,

A complaint about the condition of a neighbouring school

I, as above-named, am writing this letter to …………. about the dreary condition prevalent in a
neighbouring school. In truth, for eons, SMK Jambu was renowned for its prestigious students,
pristine surroundings as well as its tuckshop’s succulent lamb chop. Nonetheless, in this age of
modernisation, the school’s condition has .............................. so much so that it is the school with
the worst reputation in the state.

2. First and foremost, SMK Jambu has earned a disreputable image because of its unruly pupils.
By way of illustration, a majority of the pupils are involved in some form of gangster
……………………. Meanwhile, some are even drug addicts who crowd the back alleys during the
…………………. hours in a bid to earn some money.

3. Without a remnant of doubt, SMK Jambu appears sleazy due to its filthy compound that is rife
with variegated types of garbage viz plastic bags and sweet wrappers. In fact, the Brobdingnagian
dumpster at the edge of the school’s perimeter is always filled to the brim with festering organic

waste. This is because the general workers just allow the kids to throw uneaten food and the like
into the dumpster without putting them in garbage bags.

EASY WRITING MODULE PPD MUAR 21

4. Inevitably, the school is in a bad way because of a number of strict teachers who like to
…………... at their pupils using harsh words and impertinent epithets. Furthermore, they threaten
to cane the pupils for minor mistakes like eating in the classroom. Subsequently, parents have
come to dislike sending their children to this school. Thus, it has, undoubtedly, affected the school’s
annual enrolment.
5. Another shortcoming is the lack of desks and chairs as many old chairs have become
………………. and unusable. Hence, in some classrooms, the pupils have to sit down on the chilly
cement floor. As a result, several pupils have complained of leg cramps after hours on end of sitting
on the floor. The ............................. of facilities in the form of air conditioners and fans has also
caused the children to suffer from excessive heat and discomfort.
6. Kind Sir, the school too has a............................... reputation as it is situated in a remote area
where there are innumerable acres of barren land. In fact, it is also flanked by forests causing the
pupils to be exposed to all kinds of dangers either from rogues, wild animals or poisonous insects.
7. I do hope that the authorities concerned would do something to ………………. the problems
found in this hapless school. For instance, they could provide ……………… to install air
conditioners other than buying some wooden desks as well as chairs for the pupils. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Question: Write a story that ends with 'I am what I am today because of my aunt.' Write a
story about a girl who lost her family years back.

(Instruction: Rearrange the paragraphs according to the correct sequence and write the essay in
your essay book.)

I could clearly remember the tragedy. It was on a Friday night after my
tuition class. When I arrived, I felt strange as my parents left the door ajar.
Quietly and suspiciously, I walked into the house. To my horror, my parents
were sprawling right across the carpet.

It was a very disturbing scene. Someone called the ambulance and
police. I was so shaken that I could not stop crying. Somehow, they
managed to contact my aunt. She tried to console me but I screamed so
hysterically that I was given a sedative jab and fell asleep instantly.
When I woke up, she was right there by my bedside. I felt safe and secured
in her presence.

I still do not have the answer of why this happened to me but I know God
loves them more. Today, I am celebrating this new happiness- this new me with
my loving aunt. Without her support, I would not have made it. Indeed, I am
what I am today because of my aunt.

After six months in the psychiatry unit, I was finally discharged. I was put
under my aunt’s custody. My parents were killed in a home robbery. The

prime suspects were finally arrested, convicted and sentenced. Despite that,
the life of my loved ones could not be returned. “You have to learn to let it go.
I’m sure your parents would want you to be alright even when they are not
around anymore. God will test those with strength and I know you are strong.”
My aunt advised me not to keep the hatred in my heart.

I knew that I should stay focused in my studies to achieve my dream of
joining a forensic team. I am grateful that I still have my aunt whose caring
words awaken me. She, on her own, replaces both of my parents in every
respect. I did not know what happiness was until my aunt’s caring words sank
into me on my graduation day. There she was sitting in the front row,
looking at me with loving eyes, proudly as I stood on the stage giving a
speech. She was my guardian angel who protected and cared for me since
the death of my parents.

Question: Breakfast is said to be an important meal of the day. How far do you
agree?(Answer: agree)

A lot of people, especially youngsters, go through the day without having breakfast. Many
people believe that it is not necessary, or they say that they do not have time for that, and begin their
day with no meal. I believe that everyone should eat breakfast before going for their activities. The
purpose of this essay is to show the importance of breakfast, especially for students. (thesis
statement).

The first reason as to why you should eat breakfast before going to school is for your health.
When you skip breakfast and go to school, you are looking for a disease because it is not healthy to
have an empty stomach all day long. It is crucial to have a meal and not to work with an empty
stomach. You are going to get gastritis and a lot of other health problems if you do not eat breakfast.

Another reason for having breakfast is because you need food to do well in your classes. Your
body and your brain are not going to function well as good as they could because you have no energy
or strength. When you try to learn something and have nothing in your stomach, you are going to have
a lot of trouble progressing. A lot of pupils avoid eating breakfast because they think they are going
to feel sleepy in class, but that’s not true. Breakfast is not a very big meal. On the contrary, you’re
going to feel tired if you don’t have breakfast because you have spent the entire previous night without
food.

The last reason to have breakfast every day is because you can avoid sickness. If you do not
eat, you will be weak and the sickness will have adverse effect on you because you’re going to get
sick easier than people who have breakfast every day. You have to realise that breakfast is the most
important meal of the day, and you cannot skip it without consequences for your health, your school
and your defence mechanism. It is better to wake up earlier and have a good breakfast than run to
school without eating anything. It is time for you to do something for your health, and eating breakfast
is the better way to start your day.

On the last day before Christmas, I to a supermarket to buy a gift I did not

manage to buy earlier. When I saw a big crowd there, I regretted for not shopping for the gift early.

Nonetheless, I made my way to the toy section. There, I noticed a small boy of about five years old,

pressing a doll against his chest. He had a look. Then, the little boy turned to the old

woman next to him, "Granny, are you sure I don't have enough money?" The old lady replied, "Yes,

dear." Then, she asked him to stay there for five minutes while she went to look around. She left

“Ring!!!” The mother picked up the phone and said, "Hello?" It was Mel!!! She asked
for Adam. Adam’s mother was very happy. She started to cry and said, "Oh! Finally,
my son has the courage to talk to you!! Mel was shocked. The line was quiet for a
while and then Mel told Adam’s mother that she would call him again.

Adam walked into a CD shop and saw Mel behind the counter. Mel was a pretty girl.
Mel smiled and Adam thought it was the most beautiful smile he had ever seen
before and wanted to tell her how much he liked her right away. However, Adam did
not have the gut to do so. He said "Uh... Yeah... Umm... I would like to buy a CD."
Adam picked one out and gave her money for it.

"Would you like me to wrap it for you?" she asked, showing her cute smile again.
Adam nodded and Mel went to the back. She came back with the wrapped CD and
gave it to him. He took it and walked out of the shop. Adam went home and from
then on, he kept on thinking of Mel. Adam was so happy but he was too shy to
approach her. Adam went to that shop every day and bought a CD and Mel would
wrap it for him. Adam wanted to say “Hi” to Mel but he just could not. Adam was
confused. He did not know why he was so scared but he did not give up.

At home, Adam practised in his room what to say to ask Mel out. He practised in
front of the mirror. One day, Adam’s mother found out about this and told him to just
ask her out. Adam’s mother was happy that her son liked a girl. His sporting mother
encouraged him to be brave. Adam remembered his mother’s advice well, “Nothing
ventured, nothing gain”.
Mel did not only smile but she gave Adam her cutest smile. Adam was very happy.
“Hi, Adam. I have been waiting for this day for so long…thank you. Mel gave to Adam
a CD with the title “You Are My Love”. Adam grabbed the CD and shouted “Yahoo!!!
Yabedabedoo!!”.
So, the next day, he tried to be brave and went to the shop. He bought a CD like
usual and once again she went to the back of the shop and came back with it
wrapped. He was ready to ask her out but suddenly a customer walked in. Adam
changed his plan. He quickly left his phone number on Mel’s desk and ran out.
Later in the day, Adam went to the shop. Mel was alone in the shop. Adam was
sweating profusely but not because the air-conditioner in the shop was not
functioning. Adam was very nervous. He was whispering to himself “Nothing
ventured, nothing gained” a few times. When Mel came nearer, Adam finally opened
his mouth and said, “Hi, I am Adam. I…I… know you are Mel. I….I ….I like your
smell…so...so...sorry…your smile!”
