Samoan Language Week

Talofa, Avondale College community!

We are celebrating Vaiaso o le Gagana Samoa - Samoa Language Week 2023, from Sunday 28 May - Saturday 3 June.

This year's theme is: ‘Mitamita i lau gagana, maua’a lou fa’asinomaga’ which means ‘Be proud of your language and grounded in your identity’. This year's theme focuses on the importance of the Samoan language and identity. It impresses on us the need not only to understand the Samoan language, but to also use it as much as possible. When you are proud of your language and can speak it, you will also be more grounded in your identity as a Samoan. Mitamita i lau gagana, maua’a lou fa’asinomaga encourages Samoan language pride in four key areas: Be proud of your ancestral language Be proud of your spiritual language Be proud of your language in your families Be proud of your written language Avondale College Samoan Language Week 2023 Activities:
