Talofa! Here is our lovely teacher Miss Venturi visiting Samoa with Miss Holt, Ms Mautairi, Mrs Fuli (Yendarra School teachers), Mrs Farmer (one of Yendarra School's Deputy Principals) and Mrs Dunlop (Yendarra School's Principal). They went to look at schools in Samoa and to learn more about the amazing Samoan people and their culture. Miss Venturi had lots of wonderful stories and photos to share when she came home! We felt very sad when we heard about the tsunami that devasted Samoa during our school holidays, we have being doing a lot of learning around what happens during and after a tsunami. Yendarra School has raised money to send to help the relief efforts in beautiful Samoa. Room 14 says a karakia each afternoon, in Samoan and in english, for the Samoan people.
