Cook Island Language Week 18

Happy Cook Island Language Week 2018! 

The Room 6 Aiga have thoroughly enjoyed Cook Island Language Week 2018. Thanks for the amazing efforts of Miss Tumutoa, Matua Ben, Whaea Pae, Whaea Naomi and Whaea Ngatere, all the tamariki of Rongomai School have had a good taste of the tropical Kuki Airani life style. 

The Room 6 Aiga have enjoyed learning how to introduce themselves in the Cook Island language, 

 learning about the importance of love and forgiveness through the story of Ina and Tinirau, 

choreographing and performing a traditional Cook Island dance for the Kukis Got Talent Showcase, 

and also learning how to design and create a gorgeous TAV design using stencils generously provided by the Katoa family. 

There are two more Pasifika Language weeks left in Term 3. Tongan Language Week 2018 in Week 7 and also Māori Language Week 2018 in Week 8. The Room 6 Aiga cannot wait! We’ll be back with more highlights but until then, ei muā!
