Long Bay College celebrated Samoa Language Week in Term 2. Each day the classrooms had a common everyday word to learn. We also translated our four school values Care, Respect, Creativity and Community. This year the theme for Samoa Language Week was
Strengthen the posts of your house, for all to thrive.
When you’re building a foundation for a fale (house) it can’t have a weak foundation or posts. This is the same for the foundations of our families, schools and churches that play an important role in strengthening Gagana Samoa (the Samoan Language). Language is important for the foundations of our overall wellbeing.
