It is Cook Island Language Week. Taking part in the initial Flag Raising Ceremony is always a significant part of our Language Week program.

These drummers are very skilful and the drums sounds great.

The representatives of the different 15 islands of the Cook Islands.

This week, we integrate most of our learning with the Cook Island language, arts and culture.

Completing our 'Goal Setting' for Term 3.

Early Wednesday morning, our school Principal is sweeping and clearing the bike track in preparation for the teachers
Bike Professional Development session. Thank you Mr Vasau for thinking about the safety of our staff at Rowandale school.

Ms Cooper is learning all about bikes and how we will use these safely at school.
We can't wait for our very first session later this term.

It is the end of the Cook Island Language Week. We are ready to join the celebration assembly.

We are one of the few classes to be seated first and we are ready to take part.

Great to watch our Tumanako peers performing a Cook Island dance.

We are so proud of our classmate Leyon Caffery for representing us in these boy's Cook Island drum dance.

Thank you Aroha students for entertaining us, you all look so glamorous.

We are all enjoying the various performances. It is wonderful to see a lot of our parents joining us at the celebration assembly on the last day of the Cook Island Language Week.
