Cook Island Language week
We have had a wonderful celebration week here at Mana College for Epetoma o te reo Māori Kūki ’Āirani.
Every morning there has been karakia read aloud to the School by Teani Samuals and on Friday there was a beautiful waita led by Andrew Moe from Te Whare Ako.
Thursday was our main celebration day and we had the Mana College Cook Island group perform two exciting dances followed by a primo freestyle session. Look out for us again in Manafest, our own show on the 22nd September in the Mana College Hall. Big thanks to tutors Helen Kopa and George Ruaporo.
