  • 1. USSR/CLOZE 2010 Secondary 4/5 NA R Name: _______________________ No: ____ Date: ________ Class: __________ KEY Main Instructions: 1. Fill in each blank with a suitable word. 2. Write each answer in the space provided in the passage. Important information: 1. Spelling errors. You receive a ½ mark if the word is a correct fit, but wrongly spelt, e.g. “missery” for “misery” or “sufficent” for “sufficiently”. You receive 0 if the spelling is so bad that the word is unrecognizable by the marker. The marker’s decision is final. 2. Grammatical errors. You receive O if the grammatical form is incorrect, e.g. “construct” for “constructed” or “suppose” for “supposing”. T1W5.2010 CLOZE 9: Factual Recount: Banned for having a tattoo (1) He was suspended from school for having a tattoo. To return, all the 16-year-old had to do was laser off the tattoo. However, that is not something the boy is willing to do. His mother is [1] standing by him - even if it meant moving to another school. After [2] approaching seven schools on her own and another three with the school's help, she finally found one that agreed to take him in - but he must keep his tattoos hidden - all this because of the boy's [3] refusal to remove the tattoos. Both mother and son claim they were not aware of the school's 'no tattoo' rule. They feel they have been [4] denied 'the right to basic education just because he has a tattoo'. The boy has five tattoos, including a dragon head, on the right side of his chest. His mother, who wanted to be known only as Madam Yip, 50, is divorced. She claims she learnt about the first of his five tattoos only after he had it done. He was in Secondary Two then. It is not [5] known how he got the money to pay for the tattoos, which can cost thousands of dollars, depending on the [6] intricacy of the design. Said Madam Yip, “I found out by [7] chance that he had a tattoo and I was so angry that I caned him. I was angry and disappointed.” But she is [8] reluctant to make him remove the tattoos. She asked, “Why put him through laser removal now? Can't the school just give him a public caning to teach him a lesson?” The school's student handbook states that the school does not allow students to have tattoos and, should a student be caught with one, he or she can return only after starting laser [9] treatment to remove it. But the boy is [10] adamant that he has done nothing wrong. “If tattoos are not allowed in school,” he said, “why then is there no [11] minimum age (for getting a tattoo)?” The Education Ministry has no rule against tattoos in schools, preferring to leave it to the schools' [12] discretion. It is true, there is no minimum age for getting a tattoo in Singapore. Responding to [13] queries from The New Paper, the school's principal said, “If a pupil is found with a tattoo, his parents will be brought in and the pupil will be suspended temporarily from school until they have seen a doctor regarding the removal of the tattoo. The rules are [14] printed in the School Diary and Handbook which every pupil purchases at the start of the year. The Discipline Committee of the school also [15] briefs pupils on the school rules at the start of every year.” 1 4 7 10 13 2 5 8 11 14 3 6 9 12 15
