Students and staff are enjoying the celebration of Samoan Language week, with a number of events planned. On Monday, Miller Fa’amausili was invited to present a speech to the Ministry of Education Auckland office to launch their celebration of the week and Samoan Language students hosted ula lei making for students who wanted to learn this skill. On Tuesday, students made a number of Samoan dishes, giving away delicious cups of Koko Alaisa at lunch time. Throughout the rest of the week there are dance performances, a game of Lape on the field, and finally, a concert to finish off the week. It has been a fun-filled week that has put a spotlight on the theme for this year:
Fa’aāuāu le Folauga i le Va’a o Tautai - Continue the Voyage with Competent Wayfinders of the Ocean. Our confident Samoan students and staff have been superb wayfinders for our community as we continue our voyage together, celebrating Samoan language and culture and its place in our diverse community.
