The student councillors performed a "fatele" at the whole school assembly. The traditional Tokelauan dance called "fatele" involves a lot of actions and movements that explain the Tokelauan way of life and the environment they live in like the threat of climate change.

Last Friday the Student Councillors hosted a Daffodil mufti day. The main purpose was to support the Cancer Society of NZ. Everyone in our school got to wear something which was either green, yellow or orange. The school looked really colourful. They made a gold coin donation.
This week we celebrated Tongan Language Week.
The theme for this year is: Fakakoloa 'o Aotearoa 'aki 'a e Tauhi Fonua -which means: A Tongan Perspective of Enriching Aotearoa, New Zealand.
The Student Councillors had been learning a traditional Tongan dance known as the ma'ulu'ulu –(mah-oo-loo-oo-loo). It’s a sitting dance and the movements are mostly shown through the hands as well as the tilt of the head known as the teki (tek-key).
Here are some photos from our performance:

We celebrated Cook Islands language week at our school.
The theme for this Year is:
Taku rama, taau toi: ora te reo
Meaning:My torch, your adze: The language lives
To celebrate Cook Island language week, the Student councillors sang a song called: Te tere nei. This song is a popular children’s song sung during church. It’s about the train going to heaven and everyone needs to hop on board.
