Anameis FiaFia

Pt England Schools Amazing
Weeks and weeks of hard work dancing, preparing for the Amazing Fiafia.
All of the children participating in a culture performance or another group in front of a 6000 audience wow!

Imagine as you walk through the gates of Pt England School just breathing in the essences of beautiful food. Seeing all of the young children gathering together as one and collecting lots of food. People selling food from there food stalls. “ Beep Beep Beep All students please head to their changing rooms please” goes the intercom.

As I head to the my changing room I hear my Mum and Dad shout out “Good luck Mei”. I felt as if I would make them proud. I am in the band as well as the cook island group. The cook island group were performing last. I think that they saved the best for close to the last. The band was performing halfway the through FIaFia.

I then got prepared into my band costume. Our Band was called “Red Remix” isn't that a cool name. Our costumes were everything black and a red bow tie. The intercom beeped again saying “ Everyone please line up and head to the Markee”.

We all lined up in the hallway bunched up with lots of other children in their beautiful costumes. After waiting 10 minutes or so we finally see movement happening at the top of the hallway. “ Keep on moving keep on moving” shouting the Teachers.

All of the groups finally made it outside and were sitting in their lines. “ FiaFia Night WooHoo” Mr Burt Said on the microphone. The performances were starting. Kapa Haka started First. Just seeing the senior girls and boys ns stage made the parents feel happy.

Starting off with a calm performance then came on another group and then another group and so on and so on. Then Tyla one of the prefects came and got the Band we were all very nervous. In the Band is Me , Lisia and Henry arę the singers. Korubuea (Drummer), Howard (Keyboard), Isara , Neo, Ben and Sticks. Gloria introduces us and we start singing. I had butterflies in my stomach but I knew I had to be strong.

After our performances there was another group on and another till cook island dancing I hurried to the bathroom and got into my costume, put on my make up and headed to my group line. Then Wyatt introduced the Cook Island group to the stage. As the beat was echoing through the bays of Pt England School we were dancing to the beat. I felt my culture beating in my heart within me.Finally FiaFia came to an End I was happy and Proud of myself.
