SEPTEMBER – Tongan Language Week

At the end of Term 3 we celebrated Tongan Language Week taking part in a range of school-wide activities.  We were blessed to have Reverend Tavake from the Tongan community open our week with prayer and devotion as well as some special Tongan Role models.  Thanks to Miss Henry who invited Tumanako Fa’aui to speak to our students about his school and educational experience as a PhD Candidate. The children also visited the Mangere Arts Centre who provided workshops and interactive activities about the Tongan Culture. Our students were able to perform traditional Tongan dances for our Fiefia Night led by Mrs Fatai and Grace Lelulua’i our after school co-ordinator.
