The amazing Pacifica Trip!

On Tuesday Room 16 went to the Pacifica Art and Culture Centre.   My favourite part of the trip was when we got weave our own Te Reo Maori headbands.  
Something I learnt was how to weave harekeke, which is flax and learn new ways to say "hello" in the Pacific Island languages.  Here are some new greetings I learnt - Talofa lava, Malo e leiei, Aloha, Fakaalofa iahi atu.


Aloha everybody.  On the 21st of August Room 16 and 13 went on a trip.  Can you guess where?  If you can't here's where we the Pacific Art Centre.  
My favourite part of the trip was the musical workshop because it was very cool playing around with the island kind of drums.  
Something I learnt was what a ukelele means.  It means jumping fleas.  
I wonder what trip we'll go on next time.  What do you think?


Room 16 and Room 13 went to the Pacifica workshop on Tuesday 21 August.  I was in KK's mum's group with MC, KK, QO and me.  When we went inside the lady introduced the mama's to us.  My favourite part of the trip was when we did the drumming and weaving.  
Something I learnt was in the olden days they communicated with drums.  I also learnt how to weave with harekeke.
Does my story make you interested to go to a Pacifics workshop?  If it does check out this link...

I've never been to the Pacifica Art and Culture Centre so it was very interesting to read about your visit. It sounds like you got to do lots of fun things.

I really enjoyed going on your trip to the Auckland Museum and Maritime Museum earlier this term. Maybe I'll have to come along on your next trip too!
