Niuean Language Week

Fakalofa Lahi Atu
This week we have been celebrating Niuean Language Week. To celebrate this we weaved a mat where in Niue this is part of their life to create mats and hats from flax. Instead of using flax we used paper.
    Over and under was the technique we went with to create our mat.
It was a struggle at first however that didn't stop us.
Lincoln, Jayden and Rawiri are busy weaving.
      Jessie and Cassius working hard.
            Presley using blue strips.
Trong, Crystal and Jorge all busy weaving their strips over and under.
