Tongan Assembly

On  Friday the 7th September the Tongan Group performed  at the Tongan Assembly.  The girls danced a Taulonga to the song Maili e Matangi.  The girls wore a’tapa’ (mat) because it is our traditional dress for dancing, and ‘vesas’ on our feet and wrists.   When we finished dancing our parents, to show appreciation, danced and did a ‘fakapale’ (gave money to their child when he or she was dancing).  We also sang a song called “Mali malimai” with the whole school.  I had a lot of fun dancing and wearing the costumes.
