Week 2 was Cook Island Language Week!

On Monday we had the Flag Ceremony to introduce the culture and a little bit of facts about Cook Island.

Tumanako 12 have been learning the Cook Island language and the National anthem. The students have enjoyed and was able to pronounce and sang beautifully every morning!

We also have been doing some printmaking as part of the Cook Island language week. We have been doing a lot of trial and error. At first we have used cardboard to create prints but it didn't work effectively and at the end we have made a Tivaevae.

On Wednesday our Team Tumanako did a lot of running! It was our first time doing the BEEP TEST and everyone had thoroughly enjoyed it!
