Last week the Cook Islands speech competitions were held here at our school.  The year 8 winner was Jasmine Ah-mai who presented her speech on “Te Mou maria anga i taku peu Kuki Airani”, Embracing My Cook Island Culture.  The year 6 winner was Lakisha Tuitupou from Papatoetoe West School and her speech topic was “The destruction of our World”.

We would like to thank our judges on the day Ms Abbygail Haurua, Papa William Tutu, Mr Kemo Teariki and a big meitaki atupaka to Mrs Teariki and Mrs Laing for there support.
