The Shook Visitors - Stanley's Writing!

This morning the whole of St Pius X Students, staff and some parents had an assembly for visitors that came from Australia.


First, we had a Cook Island welcoming done by Lau, Followed by a prayer from Lusia and her team. Then 5 girls from the juniors performed a FABULOUS cook island dance and the visitor's faces were shook!

Then, 6 boys from the Seniors performed an Awesome Samoan dance. Fano was the leader and he was shirtless and shiny, the look on the ladies from the visitors was amazing. Finally, all of our perfumers were finished and we had one lady from the visitors giving us a speech on where her school is and talking about how well we presented ourselves.  Then the school sang for the last time and the assembly finished the visitors left with a big smile.

Welcome Liturgy for the Cairns Visitors - Mikeala's Writing

My Point Of ViewCairns Visitors Assembly


During this morning I and the Set-up crew were busy running around getting things to set up the hall for our Welcome Assembly to the visitors from Cairns, Queensland Australia. I wasn’t nervous at this welcoming assembly mainly because I wasn’t doing anything in particular except for controlling the Sound System in general. Although as time went past I started to get the chills from thinking I was going to do something wrong just like somebody pushing the red button.

In the meantime, I and Aaliyah continuously went over the presentation making sure that everything was set and ready. While we waited we told the boys who were performing a Siva (dance) to practice before we had to begin. As they danced I was starting to get really humorous because of how some of the boys were mucking around and making weird but hilarious faces. Then I started to get reckless and decided to sweep the floor of the hall’s stage.
Group of Boys/Ewan, Lau, Fano, Motu, Opi and Mackey

Eventually, the bell rang and students began to enter the hall with their teachers. As soon as everyone was seated Mrs.Tui invited us to practice singing a Tongan song named E Otua. After a while of singing, everybody went silent. At this moment Lau had broken the silence standing at the front of the stage welcoming the Cairn visitors. When they had seated Lusia lead us with the School Prayer and introduction.
Lau greeting the visitors from Cairns, Queensland Australia.

As time went on from readings to prayers it finally came to the Cultural performances from the boys and girls. The first performance was from a group of girls dancing to a Cook Island song. While they danced Aaliyah and I focally paid attention to the girls who were on stage just like everybody else. I thought that their performance was cute and very impressive from them especially the younger girls that were in it.
Group of Girls/Telehiva, Silia, Mele, and Pauline

Last but not least was the boy's performance and as they walked up onto the stage confidently but sensibly I was getting nervous because I had thoughts that they were going to muck up or in my case fall off the stage. During the dance, it was very entertaining for the visitors as I could see the surprised and impressed looks on their faces. So to conclude the Welcoming Assembly went all well after all in an end to proudness and thanks.
Boys Dancing - Siva

Cairns Welcome

Today we welcomed visitors/teachers from Cairns. They came to look at our school and how we do our learning. There were 8 of them. We welcomed them to the hall with a Cook Island call led by Lau. He was amazing. We are so proud of him. Great work our friend.

Von's understanding of how Jesus taught love!

Von says: Jesus taught the apostles about Love because: In the scripture of Matthew 5:43-46 - it says: To not only love and pray for those who you only love but also the people who you hate. Always remember that we are all created in the image of God and if you hate someone you're actually hating God. Be considerate of others and love them the way God loves you.

She felt the most successful in Film Making. Why? Because, she was able to work with her aiga. This usually doesn't happen but she was able to communicate and work with them. Her and her aiga  were also able to make a list of mistakes early film makers make. This will help them to avoid those mistakes and become better and more productive.
