Fiafia Reflection.

Fiafia night. The one night where all cultures from everywhere such as Samoa and Tonga, right down to Bollywood and Asia get the chance to showcase their awesome traditional performance. But guess what! That is the exact thing that Pt England did.

We started off the day by having dinner at school, well most of us did. Then we only had 15 minutes for a wander around and then we were in our changing room getting ready to show the crowd what we have been practising.

Oh wait I forgot to introduce what I am talking about. On the 9th of March which is a  Wednesday we had our Biannual Fiafia night. The category that I participated in was Hawaiian along with my friend’s Mary, Quasia and Nikki.

Not only I participated in one thing I also joined Kapa Hake Senior. Which is a pleasure not only to be in the group but to open up our Fiafia group.
“It time for our children to go their changing room” Mr Burt announced. We made our way down to the resource and as we got there our beautiful dress were on the table. We quickly put it on, and ran towards the library. Our group then had a little karakia with Mr G and then we were of on the stage.

Walking up the stairs I felt butterflies in my stomach. We sang our first song with kaha. And then we had 3 more songs, the last song was a really catchy song because we did a haka at the end.

I left the stage with a huge grin on my face. After all I think that the was awesome, I would like to have a fiafia next year, most of the parents love it!
