Tongan language week/Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e Lea Faka-Tonga at Ranui & Kowhai

Ranui Kindergarten had the pleasure of welcoming Sandra and the Tongan Society South Canterbury into kindergarten for Tongan language week. The children enjoyed learning Tongan songs, greetings and colours. Mālō Sandra for teaching the children, Sepitema for the amazing Tongan doughnuts and Sila for the fruit drink recipe.

 

Kowhai Kindergarten were also fortunate to have Wendy and Tyrone’s Mum and Grandma visit us today to celebrate Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e Lea Faka-Tonga.  Tyna (Mum) and Nola (Grandmother) supported Wendy and Tyrone as they shared their language, songs and interesting details about Tonga.
