Kailao // Tongan War Dance

The school year is winding down and culture week (November 18) is right around the corner. My students have started practicing the kailao (Tongan War Dance). The kailao is performed using fohe kailao (the wooden spears) and each one is carved by someone in their family.
 Here is 'Atu (my principal) watching the practice.
 They have so much fun and it's such a great way to end each day.
Here are the Class 5 and 6 kids (who have performed it for the last 3 years). 

If the interwebs are behaving I may even upload a video in a few weeks.
