Student’s Good Work> Anthology of English essays - Keeping a School Pet  

Ng Shing Fung, Jacky (F.1D)

Dear Principal,

I would like to write this letter to you suggesting to keep a sheep as our school pet.

Why is sheep a suitable school pet? I think it is tender, easy to grow fast and its character is suitable for schools to keep.

The advantages include the fact that we can educate our students to have a heart to look after others. It also helps students to be concerned about animals and that they will not abandon their pets.

I suggest we can use the roof area to keep it because we can use school land resources properly. We can build a home for it by our students so that this can develop our sense of belonging.

I hope you can consider my proposal.

Yours sincerely
Chris Wong
