Niue Language Week Celebrations

This past week we have celebrated Niue Language Week at school by sharing part of the Niue culture through movies shown on PENN (Pt England News Network). On Friday a Niuean student (Kingston L) delivered a prayer in Niuean at our school assembly. Then we held a quick quiz to test whether students remembered what they had learnt during the week.

Later in the day, Room 21 was treated with muffins that had a mini copy of the Niue flag on them which were a big hit with the class. Staff were also treated with a morning tea shout from two Niuean staff members (Ms Lavakula and myself) and from other lovely staff including Mrs Tuala who encouraged us to celebrate Niue language week this week. Fakaue lahi mahaki Mrs Tuala! So well done to all who took part this week. It doesn't matter which culture you are from, but it is important to nurture, protect and use your language.

Days of the week and Niuean villages

This movie is presented by Niuean students Dartanian, Juliet, Ashlee and Darius. Learn about the days of the week in Niuean and the names of the villages of Niue. Well done to Ms Lavakula and her students for putting this movie together.
