Niue Language Week 2016

This year we celebrated Niue Language week, by sharing short movies about our language and culture on PENN (school news network). At the end of the week our Niue group performed an item. The following movie shows our item from the Niuean group who performed at assembly during Niue Language week this year.

5 Years


Do you remember when you were only 5 years old? Turning 5 is such a milestone in our lives because that’s when you get to start school.

By the time you reach Year 8, you will realise that everyone’s journey through school is different. Whatever happens, school is a time to enjoy being young, to learn, to be creative, and to create special memories.

We hope that your experience at school inspires you to be the best person that you’ll ever be.

Enjoy our movie created by the Year 7 & 8 Extension group. A huge big thank you to Matua Lewin (Teacher) who is the person singing on our soundtrack.

(song inspired by 'Seven Years' by Lukas Graham)

The Legend of the Lost Tribe


Did you know that Kupe was probably the first explorer to reach NZ? Early Polynesian explorers used traditional navigation methods to guide them on their voyage. But what would make someone leave their island and travel thousands of miles across the ocean?

This movie was created by our Year 5 & 6 Extension students. First they wrote stories about Maori and Pacific warriors. Then they created a graphic of their own Maori or Pacific warrior on Hyperstudio. Each student can be seen fighting with their warrior in the movie. Check it out!

(Special thanks goes to Mr Jacobsen for his fantastic narrating skills!)
