Niuean and Indian Language Week

Welcome to another week, another weekly blog with me! First week back at school and what a week it was. We got to get straight into another exciting language week not one but two which was exciting to celebrate and learn about. On Tuesday we got to open up with a celebration assembly which was held in the hall where we officially declared it open. We also had some great activities done inside the classroom. Our favourite art piece was our rangoli patterns that we painted and coloured in. We even added some glitter for that extra touch. Here's a snippet of what we made. Jalan created a beautiful rangoli pattern We used corks for painting girls creating some great masterpieces Some students creating their own rangoli patterns Lovely painting coming along To end of our language weeks we ended it of with our usual shared lunch where we got to try a lot of food from India and Niue. We even got to combine with Aroha 1 and we had so much fun together.
