Tongan Language Week 2019

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.
