Section 1: Directed Writing
You are advised to write between 200 and 300 words. Total marks for this part: 30.

Task
Your Principal wants to make sure that your school is doing all it can to encourage a healthy
lifestyle for the students. The Principal has asked you to write a report suggesting the changes
you think are needed in your school to make this possible.
Write your report. You must include the following:


what is wrong at the moment, so that the Principal knows exactly what has to be
changed



what improvements you would like to see, both in the curriculum and the school facilities



how you think students and the school would benefit from these changes.

Cover all three points above in detail. You should make your report informative and persuasive for
the Principal. Start your report ‘To the Principal,’ and remember to add your signature and a date.
