Before Fiafia

Here at Pt england school we have our annual Fiafia, where all the students get into groups and learn a performance that they will share with the rest of the school and community. Their are heaps of groups from various cultures and countries. Like Samoan,Cook island dancing and
drumming,Bollywood,Asian,Hip Hop,,Circus Circus,Rock band that’s only some of them. We do this to celebrate all the diversity in our community.

I'm in the Cook island dance group. Were a mixed group with juniors and seniors. I'm only one of the two year eights in my group. We have been practising for 6 weeks now and I definitely think that our group has made a big improvement. We practise in the pavilion. One of the student's mother and father help tutor us along with Miss Nalder and Miss Peak.

We also work alongside the Cook island drumming group who will be playing live at the event. The cook island drums provide big loud beats for us to dance to. We will be performing in a blue pareu with a white t-shirt and a yellow ei.

Yesterday we had a rehearsal on the stage in the front of the school. We wore the last group to practise. When my group went on it was not like what we planned we weren't in the right order and the whole back of the stage was taken up by our drummers. So After the rehearsal was finished our group stayed behind to have one more practise and to sort out our lines.

So Please come to our Fiafia tonight at our school. Their will be heaps of food stalls to buy from. If you come down please bring a gold coin to support our school fundraisers.
