Model Answer:

Thank you for this nice cue card topic. When I was a student of Hong Kong International School, located in Repulse Bay, I made an intentional mistake and was punished by the teacher. This is really a memorable event for me. And I did not think that the teacher will notice the matter. But unluckily he noticed and I got the punishment. This is a great cue card topic and it helps to remember me my school days in Hong Kong and here goes the detail description of the entire event now.

Actually, I did not do a home work. I was at the secondary level in the school and often used to avoid the home works given us by the teachers. I did not prefer to complete the tasks at home rather completed them after reaching the school during the breaks. Unluckily, I did not do the home work on that day and said that the home work was left at home. The teacher had sent me back to home to bring the home work.

The class was filled with the other students when the teacher asked me to go back to my home and meet him even if the class ends. I was in a deep trouble. The other friends and classmates were laughing at me. They knew well that I would be a victim of the teacher’s peculiar punishment if I cannot bring the home work.

I remember the event as its ending was not pleasant for me. After admitting my guilt, the teacher asked me to write down the home work for five times in the class. I had to follow his order. And since then, I did not disobey any of his orders or instructions. In fact, it was a great lesson for the remaining days, and I did not do the same mistake again.
