National Samoan Speech Contest

7 August  Congratulations to Taualai Sola (12TB) for coming 3rd in the Year 12 category at the National Samoan Speech contest held in Christchurch on Friday 4 August.

Taualai's speech was on this year's Samoan language week theme: 'Ma'au i lou ofaga. Maua'a lou fa'asinomaga' which means to 'Keep your identity alive to thrive'.

The competition was fierce in the Year 12 category, especially between the top three speakers as there was only a point separating first from third. This was an amazing achievement for Taualai as she was the only representative from the Hutt Valley to compete in this year's speech contest.

Malo le tapena, malo le tauivi, ua i'u ma le manuia le tauvaga!
