Year 9 A Taste of the Pacific

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs V. Pekipaki

This is a course for anyone who has ever dreamed of spending time on a Pacific Island ... oh hang on ... we do live on a Pacific Island! This is your opportunity to experience the cultures of the Pacific and learn what it means to be part of this great community Moana-nui-a-Kiwa. We will celebrate the languages of the Pacific with an introduction to Tongan language - greetings, introducing yourself, talking about your family, counting and of course FOOD. What better way to learn a language than reading, writing and EATING recipes. We will learn the songs and the dances of the Pacific, not just how to perform them but what they are used for and what they mean. This is a course that celebrates who we are and where we live - it is for everyone who is curious and interested in the world around them.
