Cook Island Language Week in full force.

 Kia Orana: It's been a full on Māori Kūki 'Āirani Language Week! 

 Children have that Participation improves their confidence and sense of belonging at Rowandale school. It was fantastic to see boys having fun and making the most of the culture.
 An awesome effort from Sophie, Maddison, Sharmina, Edna, Isis, who represented our class and did Team Whakapono proud with their dance! We love Cook Island dancing and their culture.
 A big thank you to all those "behind the scenes" people that made this week possible! One of the shining gemstones of Rowandale School is how we embrace cultural diversity. Children and teachers learn Empathy as they understand differences and similarities between themselves and others, and also helping each other out when we need it. The food was amazing today after our closing ceremony. The children that performed received a plate of food for their dedication and hard work.

This week we made Ei Katu's with our buddy class. We did a pretty good job- we covered the days of the week in the Cook Island Language. 
We have really enjoyed learning about the Cook Island Culture! We look forward to Tongan Language Week in Week 7 and Te Reo Language Week in Week 8.
