Preserving Culture

The students in Room 18 have a very cool movie to share with you. Mrs Lagitupu and her class of Year 6 students have been working on this for some time and they are very proud to publish their finished movie. They have not only written, filmed and edited the movie themselves but as you will see when you watch it, they have been all over Auckland in the filming process. You will see the markets in Otara, the Museum in Auckland, a Niuean hair cutting ceremony, Samoan tatooing, visit a Kohanga Reo and much much more. Prepare to be amazed.....

  2. Hi there! I was blown away by this documentary. Even got a little teary in places. You've reminded me of the beautiful place we live and belong to. The presenters were wonderful and the work that went into it well worth it!

    I loved the range of locations and people your group interviewed.

    Well done to you all, you've made us so proud of our community and the many good things we have in it!
