Samoan Language Week by Janine Hills

Samoan Language Week

We celebrated Samoan Language Week from May 29 - June 4.

Kate Will-Tofia, Adeleah Nukanuka and other Pasifika students along with teacher David Jenkins organised events across the week. 

Highlights included lollie lei making, a movie viewing (with popcorn), coconut scraping, traditional Samoan games such as Lape and Kilikiti and a traditional Samoan lunch. 

Thanks to all the helpers including extended whanau for making the week such an enjoyable occasion. 

E lele le toloa ae ma’au i le auvai – The toloa bird flies far, but will always return to the water.
