Tokelau Language Week

Malo ni,  On the week of the 29th October we celebrated  Tokelau language week.  I performed a Tokelau dance which is called a Fatele with the performing arts and Tokelau group.  Throughout the week we did different activities like the food tasting and a best dress fashion parade and we had a whole school shared lunch. We had Koko Rice and Panikeke and it was sweet yet delicious.  Parents from the school also gave up there time to fundraiser for our trip to Te Papa by putting down an Umu.  We sold alot of Umus and it was fantastic.  We had also had a Vaka race in the hall.  It was students verses the teachers and the winners were the students.....the race was on!!!
A big Thanks to Veronica for coming in and teaching us the Fatele and tokelau songs and for helping with the food.  Also thank you to all the other parents and helpers for all you did during this week.
And a Huge thank you to all that supported and purchased our Umu.
