During week 6 of Term 2 Vaiala Beach School are celebrating all things Samoan.
This week, ‘Seki a Samoa’ will be filled with activities and hands on learning experiences. This special week ties in with our Term 2 school wide unit of We are Samoa - O la’u Aganu’u.
The whole school will be put into 10 groups and over 2 and a half days rotate around all the 10 activities. We have a range of activities from Art, Food, Games and Siva.
To make this week successful we are asking our school community for their expertise, ideas or to borrow some resources.
We would like to borrow/donate:
· Wooden Elei Printing Blocks, a range of sizes and designs.
· Koko Pods
· Potato or Rice Sacks
It would be helpful to have some parents help that week as the students rotate around the activities. Please complete the form below if you are able to help.
At the end of the week, on Thursday 31st May, we will celebrate the end of Seki a Samoa with a shared lunch and fashion show which we invite our school community to.
On this day students will share some of their creations and learning from the week. This day will also be a special Mufti Day called Samoan Style. Students will parade their Samoan outfits.
If you would like to contribute or have a talent that you would like to share with our students that is connected to Seki a Samoa then please complete the form at the end.
