KPE Episode 209: "The Secret of Kiribu Tapu Lagoon"

"The Secret of Kiribu Tapu Lagoon" by Tandi Jackson.
This book is reviewed by Caprice and Simone. They explain to us about the meaning of 'Tapu' and about the setting of this book, beautiful Vanuatu. As well as describing an exciting adventure story the girls talk about some of the cultural ideas in this story. They are well qualified to do this as their movie about 'Preserving Culture' won them the best primary school movie award in the KWN film making competition in 2008.
Have a listen to their podcast, check out their KWN movie, and let them know what you think.
And best wishes to Simone and Caprice as they leave Pt England School and head to other schools for Year 7 in 2009

  5. Hi Pt England,

    I am a teacher in Wellington. I came and visited your school last year.

    I have just watched a little Recycling videoclip someone at your school made and have been enjoying your podcasts. Keep up the great work.
