Fiafia Night 2014

As I walked into a crowd of people I could smell delicious food.  Well it was coming from our amazing food stalls. This night was a special night for our kiwi kids at Pt England School. We’ve had this every second year. Fiafia?, Hmm if you don’t know what that is well let me explain it to you. 
Fia Fia is a night where we perform items. We get put into groups and we’ve been practising every week till this day Wednesday 9th of April. It’s a time when our children also show their true cultures and celebrate.


My group was a majestic team, Hip Hop. Our team has worked hard to impress our family. We danced so hard that I think that we were outstanding. 

My favourite performance though was the Samoan group because they just stood on the stage and showed everyone there magnificent country Samoa. If you were there who did you think was that best and maybe why?



The night had gone so fast and already it was up to our last performance, the Cook Island drummers. The Cook Island group was a so loud that it got me moving to the beat. Then the boys headed onto the stage dancing and showing their culture, girls did the hula onto the stage. It was outstanding.


I felt so tired after we finished our fiafia so we head out to out changing room and waited for our parents. "That was a great night," I said to my mum after she’d pick me up. "Bye." I said to Miss King as I head out with my Family

P.E at Tamaki College

I introduced my name, My name is Hope”. After saying our names we played a game that we had to get into partners, I was number 2 and my partner was number 1, so number one will be chasing after number two but first number 1 has to spin 3 times” our leader said. I quickly hide behind my friends back so that my partner couldn’t find me. I could tell that he was dizzy because he couldn't find me and he was wriggling around trying  to land on his balance.

I look to the left and then switched my face to the right, aah” he was standing right there looking for me. Tag” he said . I was laughing but then I had to spin three times, it was such a fun game. We stopped after a few minutes to play this other game. The game included star jumps, turning around with a stick on that your hand and also running. It’s a  racing game so can you get into two teams please” Rebeka said, Rebeka is one of our leaders. We played and played I couldn't stop playing it because it was so fun. Thank you Tamaki college for your time!!

Fanning my face as I just finished a couple rounds of doing the dance. Water dripping down my face while I leaned on the wall. So now can you get into your teams” Said Miss King, I rushed towards my teammates before the music had started. The beat of the music started and we let our body’s move to the music. We’d have a competition after a few practices. Our team (Matatua) worked hard because if we win we could win some points for our team. One, two, three as we count the moves as we went on dancing.
