Samoan Language Week 2017

Our Samoan Language Week was in Week 5 this term

Monday 29 May-Friday 02 June

We are proud to celebrate Samoan Language Week at Robertson Road School. 39.66% of our students identify themselves as Samoan, the largest ethnic group at our school.

Samoan Language Week is a chance for all New Zealanders to celebrate the Sāmoan culture and language. Vaiaso o le Gagana Sāmoa is also a time to focus on encouraging more people to use and learn Gagana Sāmoa. Sixty per cent of Sāmoans in New Zealand speak Gagana Samoa but we want that number to grow.

This year’s theme is: “Ma’au i lou ofaga. Maua’a lou fa’asinomaga” – “Keep your identity alive to thrive”

We have a fun filled week planned and let us all participate and learn from our Samoan proud community.
