Kei te tino harikoa ahau e kite ia matou tamariki ki te tu o Kelifest 2016!!

WOW WOW WOW!! Kelifest was AMAZING and it was OUR TAMARIKI that shone!!

Such a fabulous day, showcasing the beauty of all our polynesian cultures, Samoa, Tonga, Cook Island, Bollywood, and Aotearoa with our Kapa haka roopu 🙂

Our tamariki were so beautiful singing and dancing and being proud of their different cultures. Kelifest 2016 was a great success and we would like to thank ALL the contributing kura in our community for all your continuous support- Glen Eden Primary, Kelston Primary, St.Leonards primary, Glendene Primary, Kelston Boys High School and Kelston Girls College 🙂 Our day would not have been so successful without your presence and amazing performances so we thank yous from the bottom of our hearts.

Also a MASSIVE mihi to all our whanau who came and helped prep our tamariki for their performances. Dressing our tamariki, making sure their hair was perfect, making sure their notes were in key, making sure their lip stick was perfect!! All these little things made a BIG difference to our festival so we thank yous all.
