Last week on Friday the Niuean group performed at assembly as part of the Niue Language Week Celebrations. The theme for this year is 'Ko e Vagahau Niue, ko e atefua he tagata Niue'. This means that the Niue Language is the heart of Niue people.
The item began with a quick speech from Mrs Lagitupu. Then TJ gave a fantastic introduction followed by brief speeches from some of our Niuean students. Our Niuean girls danced to a Niuean song called 'Sipolo' by a group called the Island Pride Band and Glen Jackson. The boys finished with a takalo (haka). Thank you to our wonderful Niuean group and students for sharing their language and culture. Fakaue lahi!
