Thank you to Matua Lui and Whaea Alleena for organising our  awesome Samoan Language Week 2017!!! Come tommorrow (6/06/17) at 12pm to see our items and some of our arts and crafts put together during the week.  Fa'amanuia le Atua (God bless). From Room 10. 

Matua Hazze and Whaea Lei explaining the process of getting the tatau (Samoan tattoo).

Tariau, Vulikati, Arcadia, Benjamin, and Nikita decorating their pale (Samoan headpiece).

Tariau and Chris helping to decorate Room 10's ie lavalava.

Benjamin, Arcadia and Zaijohn's turn to help out with the ie lavalava. Our Samoan word to learn was "Agalelei" which means kindness.

What's Samoan Language Week without panikeke? Thanks Whaea Lei! Our expert Samoan Cuisine Queen

  1. Great job Room 10 on sharing your learning of Samoan Language Week. You are very lucky to have had visitors come in and speak with you about their tattoo's (pe'a and malu). We look forward to seeing more of your work.
